creativity at your fingertips
Creative inspiration can come from anywhere. Flipping through design books, taking a zen moment or even, well, looking at your fingers. These finger tattoos (some admittedly cheesebally, but others super unique) are pretty cool and imaginative. Art is pain, right? Get inspired. Take a look.
is it fit or false?
One would think that the king of soda, Coca-Cola, would be laughed out of any gym or serious exercise class, but that perception may be changing with their recent sponsorship of the My Fit Family Challenge app. In an effort to fight obesity and to make the world a wee bit healthier, the brand is testing out the new application that encourages friendly fitness competitions within the family unit - wrapped in a rewards system that offers prizes (something Coke is intimately familiar with!)
It’s a valiant effort toward creating a healthier world, but coming from Coca-Cola, is it fit or false?
jeans so fly, they will move you
First of all, this is brilliant. Second of all, this is hilarious. Third of all…ok, I can’t balance this with a third pithy statement but the fact is that the new Taiwanese “sports-friendly” ‘Cool Knitted Denim’ line has built awareness of the product in a truly unique fashion (yes, pun intended). The brand bravely lured consumers into a faux dressing room and immediately after the consumers zipped up, the floor (read: the treadmill) started to move – challenging the unsuspecting shoppers to a legit road test! The reactions are amusing – but why isn’t anyone crying about the fact that there was a camera in a DRESSING ROOM?

bang, bang... happy earth day
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Earth Day? Wait, you didn't say guns. Is that because you are a sane individual? Probably, but gun maker Glock decided that this year's Earth Day should be about guns with a tweet. Specifically, guns the same color as dirt. So, everyone in Twitter land got all up in arms on both sides.

Groupon is doing it right
Remember when Groupon crushed it with their responses to EVERY comment on the Banana Bunker? Yeah, well they just kicked it up a notch with this video of their employees reading their favorite comments. They really know how to capitalize on a good thing. The best: "What if my banana is curved the other way?" Can't make this stuff up.
