1969 IHOP Commercial

This commercial for IHOP from 1969 nails the period down: Psychedelic synthesizers, a family with balloons (a lot of balloons) running in a field, a high-pitched Alvin voice singing the jingle... What did they do with their balloons while they ate? Where can one find such a glorious chicken dish? What was served inside that [...]

The Chewable Gumball Foosball Table

Check out the analog gaming world's latest attempt to lure kids away from the Wii: It's Gumball Foosball, "the only foosball game that is played with chewable gumballs!"
Where for decades a regular plastic ball has been more than sufficient, our friends at Hammacher Schlemmer have for no apparent reason fused sticky, sugary chewing gum with [...]

Fiji Meat Man [video]

Fijian butchers and meat packers sure are a happy lot, or so this commercial that supposedly appears on rented videos in Fiji would have us believe. Seemingly designed to attract employees to Fiji Meats Ltd, the Fiji Meat Man wants you to know "I'm proud of my job, I do what I can, the country [...]

iLickit: The First iPhone Game You Can Play With Your Tongue [video]

Just in case your day hasn't had enough bizarre, sparkly pickle-men in it, may we present to two works by Tom Rubnitz: Pickle Surprise and Strawberry Shortcut. Rubnitz was a video artist in New York in the 70s and 80s most famous for his work in the drag community. And these amazing "advertisements" for... well, [...]

The Vegan Double Down Sandwich [crimes against food]

The vegans are jealous of KFC's Double Down Sandwich, the decidedly not vegan-friendly sandwich composed of pepper jack cheese, Swiss cheese, and bacon using two Original Recipe Filets instead of buns. They can't get in on the fun.
So of course some enterprising soul went ahead and made a vegan facsimile using chikn nuggets, tofu "bacon," [...]

Agricultural Runoff Turns French Beach into Deadly Algae Stew

Photo: AP
Due to agricultural runoff of fertilizers and human and animal waste, combined with global warming, reports of toxic algae are on the rise. This is pretty devastating: On July 28, Vincent Petit, a 28-year-old researcher in a state-run virology lab, was riding his horse on the Saint-Michel-en-Greves beach in Brittany, when the two were [...]
