Seeing as we’re going with a musical theme today (one post earlier today), here’s one more: a very amusing, and hellishly true, ripoff of Nickelback’s hit song Photograph, entitled “Look at this Instagram” – yet another pearler from the always awesome CollegeHumor.
For all of you who insist on inundating us with an overload of sepia-tinged cat and food photos on Instagram, this ones for you:
Now good luck getting that tune out of your head this evening.
You know those clowns who insist on posting those long-winded faux-legal Facebook statuses proclaiming that Facebook cannot use their pics or info or whatever without their permission and blah blah blah as they’re now a publicly traded entity blah blah blah? Well, here’s one for them to set the record straight once and for all: Facebook law for idiots, from the good folks over at CollegeHumor.
Finally dragged my doughy physique to gym for a change. Got one concern though – If I manage to keep at it for a while, will I also be expected to walk around like the rest of those skinny chops who appear to be carrying invisible watermelons under their arms? They’re the littlest okes around, yet all trudge around like they’re waiting for their turn at the Olympic powerlifting final. “Ja schweet boet, I just benched like a boss!”. No, no you didn’t. You “benched” like my one-year-old daughter struggling to hold up a slightly overfilled milk bottle.
Some brand activations can be rather lame… Others? Epic. Take a look at last month’s “Unlock the 007 in you” campaign giving folks the chance to win tickets to the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.
Of course some folks (read: party poopers) are calling “FAKE” on this one, while others disagree. One guy reckons:
From an article in the Flemish news paper De Standaard: this video was produced by a Flemish company named Monodot, and was NOT fake. They did however have 106 people on the set (which is indeed Antwerp Central Station), including people to make sure no accidents would happen.
Well, I ain’t an investigator on Law & Order, so that’s good enough for me. Take a look:
Look how excited the little one is. How could you possibly say no to that enthusiasm
Never underestimate the internet’s fondness for cats.
7-year-old Remi Urbano wanted a cat, but his father said nope. Much nagging later, the dad, Dan Urbano, made a bet with his kids that he (mistakenly) assumed wouldn’t go anywhere.
According to ABC News, he stated that “if a picture of Remi and his 1-year-old sister, Evelyn, pleading for a cat got 1,000 likes on Facebook, he would buy the siblings a cat.”
So the above photo was posted on their mother’s Facebook page, the internet at large caught wind of the challenge… and a week later the photo had a staggering 115,000 likes! Needless to say, they’re now the proud owners of a pet cat – The Urbanos adopted a cat from a shelter over the weekend.
Once again I’m here to show you a gallery of photos of the latest from the Lamborghini stable, seeing as it’s nearly Christmas and you might be wondering what to get me. This time it’s the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. You’ve probably realised by now that I’m rather fond of Lamborghinis, as they tend to feature far more than other brand of supercar here on stustake.com. Not that I’d kick any supercar out of my garage…
For the tech-heads out there all the technical specs in their detailed glory are available here on the Lamborghini website. And for the rest of us? Here’s the really important stuff. Figures are as listed on the above-mentioned Lambo site – as soon as they get in touch with me to road test the thing I’ll be sure to check if they’re telling the truth.
Power: 515 kW (700 HP)
Torque: 690 Nm (507 lbft)
Top Speed: 350 km/h (217 mph)
0-100 km/h: 3.0 s
Number of panties dropped: close to infinite. (they seem to have left this all-important stat off the tech specs page, but I’m sure that was merely an oversight).
“The price?” I hear you ask. Really? Does it really matter? If I say $80 000 will you be sure to dash off and snap one up next time you pop out to buy milk and bread? Well, if you insist, here you go: According to Automoblog.net: ”the Lamborghini Aventador LP-700-4 Roadster is listed at a cost of 300,000 euros (45,000 euros above the price of the hardtop). When sold in the United States, expect it to have a price north of the $400,000 range.” Right, that’s that settled then. I’ll take three.
