Netflix Promotes Altered Carbon By Growing Human Bodies At CES

The recently concluded world’s biggest electronic was the platform for many who wants their wares to be seen and heard, and Netflix, the streaming TV service, was no exception. In fact, it had more reason to be there, simply because of the theme surrounding its much hyped cyberpunk series, Altered Carbon which it had leveraged on CES to promote. So, yeah, Netflix had a booth and it was one that no visitor will past by without noticing – thanks mainly to a pair of humans being lab-grown. Alongside the human specimens, each floating in its own vats (which are rather creepy), are elaborate gadget props and viral videos to further help to promote the “company.” Continue reading Netflix Promotes Altered Carbon By Growing Human Bodies At CES

Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???

You know what’s the cruelest thing a person can do to hot dog lovers? Making them eat hot dog with ketchup, AKA tomato sauce. To even harbor the thought of topping hot dog with ketchup amounts to blasphemy, at least it appears to be the case of Chicago hot dog lovers. For the record, I am not too enthusiastic about having tomato-based sauce on hot dogs too. Apart from caramelized fried onions and lettuce, mustard should be the only condiment that should be on top a hot dog. Period. However, Heinz, the ketchup maker, is not quite please at Chicago hot lovers’ anti-ketchup-on-your-hot-dog sentiment and set out with a marketing campaign to win them over. Continue reading Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???

Guy Made A Crazy Cool VFX Video To Sell His Old SUV And Won The Internet

There are some who sell used cars and then there is visual effect artist Eugene Romanovsky who, instead going through traditional medium like online classified ad, or selling to used car dealers, created a pretty out-of-this-world video to peddle his 1996 Suzuki Vitara SUV. Yup. That’s right. A Vitara, one of earliest incarnation of SUV by the Japanese automaker. However, the real star attraction of this 21-year-old SUV is not quite the vehicle itself (a ride which he described as his “best friend” for the last ten years. Cute), but it is the VFX-touched video that details its key features including chunky 235/75R15 off-road tires, the 96 HP 1.6L injection engine, a new exhaust converter that would make it “friendly to environment,” and manual gearbox with low gear.

Ikea Responded To Balenciaga’s $2,145 Frakta Tote-lookalike, Hilarity Ensues

Usually, when we talk about knock-off, the non-original product (or sometime, idea) is of something poorly made and cheaply priced, but that’s not what happen in the case of Balenciaga’s $2,145 Arena Extra-Large Shopper Tote Bag. So, you must asking: “who knock-off Balenciaga?” Well, the thing is, Balenciaga’s Arena appears to be the knock-off in this instant and it is kind of funny, because it looks way too similar to Ikea’s iconic Frakta tote bag (not the redesigned one though). Yes. You heard that right. Balenciaga’s luxury example looks like the trusty, big blue bag that you use to shop around in Ikea which you can also bring home for mere 99 cents.
