Whether they’re trying to reinvent themselves, revitalize their career, or simply earn more adoration from their fans, musicians are constantly coming up with crazy promotional stunts that would make the Kardashians blush.
The only problem with going big is when you fail you fail big, and musicians tend to fail in the most spectacular ways possible.
There's the time a homophobic rapper posed nude for Playgirl, unaware that over fifty percent of their readers are homosexual men, or the time another rapper dressed up like an offensive racial stereotype for a performance, supposedly unaware it would offend anyone. And then there's the metal band who sprayed the audience with real pig's blood...
The dads in this hilarious ad for Sainsbury's have nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about, because when it comes to dancing they've got some seriously sweet moves!
This hilarious ad has become an internet sensation, and may make you think twice about prejudging whether some ugly sweater sporting dad can dance before you see him out on the floor, shakin' what he's got to a funky beat!
Some people can't stand watching television, others don't dig video games, but everybody likes the movies. When Hollywood brings a story to the big screen people show up in droves to see the latest in cinematic storytelling come to life on the big screen.
People started canning food a few hundred years ago as a method of preservation and a way to make food easy to transport, and they've been canning some really gross food products ever since. Nowadays consumers are less likely to buy a canned product if they can buy fresh for the same price, and yet companies keep on canning the gross stuff because somebody out there is buying it!
We present to you ten of the most disgusting food products you can buy in a can:
We’re starting out a little less gross and working our way up, so believe it or not powdered horse milk factors in as the tamest product on the list. The can claims Golden Horde is "The Khan's Choice", assuring us that anything that was good enough for Gengis is good enough for us. They had me sold at "100% Horse Milk- No Ponies".
It’s the disgustingly fishy snack that will most certainly bite back, now with more fangs! Seriously though, how hungry would you have to be to eagerly crack in to a can of Russian Herring knowing it's full of toothy bits?
It’s easy to see why people used to buy canned whole chicken, but unless you’re living in an extremely remote area without livestock, or you’re hiding out in a vault after the bombs have fallen, then chances are you'll be steering clear of this poultry nightmare.
This line of canned food products by Heinz might not taste all that bad, especially compared to the other foul food products on this list, but their unfortunate names make them sound rather unsavory...and naughty.
Batman is such an iconic character that it's pretty easy to imagine him in different getups with different gear, and he never seems to lose his Batty appeal no matter what he's wearing.
It's fun to imagine Batman patrolling the streets of a Gotham City from long ago, or embracing the future with a bit of flash and a new attitude, and this universality makes the Caped Crusader the perfect subject for fan art.
Check out this collection of Batman fan art that reveals what he might look like in different eras both historical and fictional. It's like taking a tour of the Bruce Wayne Museum of Possibilities, and proves that no matter the time or place Batman will eternally look sharp!
It all started with George Romero’s classic film about the dead coming back to life with a taste for the living, and since those Cold War days the zombie craze has gone from geek niche genre to overblown pop culture sensation.
Diggin' on zombie pop culture is fine, but when you start surrounding yourself with zombie themed merch you’ve proven that the zombie craze has gone too far!
Zombies are pretty much exclusively adult content, because rotting corpses rising from the dead to devour the living isn’t exactly the making of a kid friendly program, and yet kiddie zombie merch keeps rolling out.
In this case it’s the Snack Time Zombie, a prop shaped like a zombie baby chewing on itself, because what parent doesn't dream of having a zombie baby hanging around the house?!
People eating baked goods that look like people? It's zombie madness! Actually, they're just trying to fit in with their undead idols, which is just plain creepy. Even creepier- you can munch on this morbid bread made by Thai master butcher baker Kittiwat Unarrom even if you're a vegetarian!
Every year, generally around the first of April, products are introduced that get our hopes up then dash them against the sidewalk like a soda bottle, as the pranksters tell us we were fools to believe such a product could exist. But we live in a world full of clear toasters, bubblegum flavored toothpaste and pajama jeans, so why wouldn’t we believe in the power of new products?
These nine products could have changed our lives, but instead they’re just something we wish actually existed.
The accordion has fallen out of favor with the young folk, except those rare kiddie polka fans and merchant marines under ten, but Accordion Hero could have brought the squeeze box back to the front of the stage where it belongs. Sadly, it was nothing but a cruel joke played on those of us who enjoy that unique accordion sound, but one guy did manage to create some semblance of the game with a toy accordion, so that's something:
Quitting your job isn't as cool as it looks in movies and TV shows- you just announce you’re leaving then walk out, no dramatic monologue, just the act of quitting and the workplace left behind.
But that was all about to change thanks to the SlipQuit, the strap-on inflatable slide pack that was supposed to make quitting fun! Imagine quitting by yelling “adios mofos!” then jumping out a second story window onto a SlipQuit, sliding into the parking lot, and the annals of workplace history, like a real boss.
Big Mouth Billy Bass showed us that a talking animatronic fish can be fun, at least for a few minutes at a time, but imagine all the fun you could have hanging out with a Star Wars Admiral Ackbar Singing Bass talking about all those darn traps!
ThinkGeek teased us with this geeky piece of home decor a few years ago, and despite an outpouring of Star Wars fan love we're still stuck with tired old Billy...use the force to make it so, ThinkGeek!
Aren’t you tired of eating foods that are just one thing? Sick of "the man" telling you when it's okay to eat? Don’t you want to break with tradition and start eating dessert all day long? Then you're like me- someone who desperately needs some Perry's Chicken Wing Ice Cream in their lives.
Too bad we're stuck dreaming of what it would be like to use Sriracha, or barbecue sauce, to make the ultimate ice cream sundae...
Manhattan was used to being a doctor and a superhero, but he had a lot to learn about being a lord of time type doctor like that guy everyone calls The Doctor! The blue police box seemed like a mighty appropriate ride, given his skin's bluish hue, but he was feeling a bit constricted wearing so much clothing. As he fiddled with his jacket he found a strange screwdriver like device in the front pocket, and upon examination found it emitted sonic waves at the push of a button. Most curious indeed, he thought, how is this wand thing supposed to help me travel through time?
Don't turn blue over bad mashups, bring home this Dr. Blue t-shirt by Camo! and celebrate the most unlikely meeting of two doctors who have the color blue in common!

The human brain is like one big puzzle, and when the pieces of that puzzle begin to fall into place the world starts to make a lot more sense, but along with this neatly stacked order comes the chaos of the unknown. That is where the feeling of self doubt resides, the part of the matrix where the pieces fall too fast or turn too soon to make a solid fit, the pits where the layer gaps begin to affect your ability to move forward to the next level. So what is a gamer to do when these gaps start to wreak havoc on the game board in their minds? Stay calm and let the pieces continue to fall, and if you concentrate on filling in those gaps and breaking through those barriers row by row you'll be able to achieve a mental high score!

He is the darkness that befalls bad people, the shadow that is cast upon evildoers as they're caught in the act, he is the Toothless Knight and he's coming to make the world a safer place for dragons and their trainers. Toothless didn't start out wanting to become a hero, but the isolation of being one of the last of his kind coupled with his newfound desire to make his trainer and friend Hiccup happy has caused Toothless to spring into action against those who spread injustice throughout the world. Beware villains, for you won't hear the Toothless Knight coming until it is too late...
Bring some animated adventure to your geeky wardrobe with this The Toothless Knight t-shirt by mdk7, and declare your love of dragons and dark knights at the same time!
It was the shot heard 'round the pop culture world, and the defendant Han claims it was all in self defense, but that weasley little Rodian knows better. He's rallying the people and getting his "Han Shot First" petition signed by any and all who believe in his cause, because background folks are sick and tired of being bullied by those main characters. Just because you have more screen time, are more likeable, and actually get to say more than three words in a movie doesn't mean you can go around blasting whoever you want! People get shot in wars, not while hanging around a cantina, so join the Rodian cause today and prevent these Solo related tragedies from happening all over the universe!

If thre's something strange in your neighborhood park who ya gonna call? Well, don't call Mordecai or Rigby, they're busy gaming and goofing off and they probably won't really want to help out anyway. You could call Skips, who will probably just hang up on you angrily, or Pops, who will be so happy you called he'll talk your ear off for half an hour, or you can cut to the chase and give Muscle Man a call. High Five Ghost is his best bud after all, so if any one can kindly inform him that he's scaring people with his ghostliness it's Mitch!
Bring some regular fun to your geeky wardrobe with this REGULAR GHOST? t-shirt by ALIENBIKER23, and people will be high fiving you everywhere you go!
Wesen come in all shapes and sizes, but there's one kind you don't want to cross unless you're ready to leave the world of the living- the Blutbaden. They're the original lone wolves, the guys who love to howl at the moon and run with the pack, or at least they used to when they were free to be themselves in the old world. Now that they're forced to hide under a veil of normalcy they've discovered things about themselves that they never knew before, like they don't mind preying on other animals instead of humans, and they actually enjoy helping Grimms catch rogue Wesen, if only because it keeps them on the winning side...
Share your knowledge of the rare and mysterious Blutbad with this Loyal Friend Savage Foe t-shirt by Grady Graphics, and spread the word that some of them aren't so big and bad after all!

When Gru purchased the Banana Stand from a particularly shifty fellow named Bluth he thought it would be a good way to keep the minions occupied while he worked on more important matters like stealing the moon or making the perfect taco cannon, but as it turns out the Banana Stand was a bad idea. The minions liked working there a little too much, but they didn't like the idea of trading their frozen banana treats for pieces of paper and shiny coins, so the Stand soon became a hotbed of minion revolution. Tempers flared, bananas began to fly, and little minions were arrested by the dozens, which interrupted the development of the Taco-Zooka 2000 and made Gru look like an awfully careless employer!
Add some deliciously geeky humor to your wardrobe with this Mini In The Banana Stand t-shirt by In Stank We Trust, it'll take your style from BeeBo to aklfjdaklsdjf
They're not the main characters, and they're well aware they were included in the film for comic relief, but they live in a frozen kingdom where there's very little to do so they were chomping at the bit to play any part they could in the production! Olaf was pretty much allowed to be himself, while Sven was told he should refrain from speaking English because the thought of a reindeer talking like a human might scare younger audiences, an idea he found ridiculous since the film featured a talking snowman! However, Elsa was the queen after all, and she has a wicked temper, so Sven kept his lines short and grunty, until filming was over for the day and he and Olaf could go back to being the most unlikely pair of best buds ever featured in an animated feature!
Friendship comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, just like this Vintage Icey Bromance t-shirt by Gilles Bone! Pick one up and keep your torso warm all winter long.
Mario was hired to clean out the pipes underneath some guy named Gru's super secret lair, so while he was down there he couldn't help but do a bit of snooping around. He discovered that little yellow beings called minions worked for Gru, helping him hatch a master plan to take over the world, and Mario found those minions to be so funny that he wanted to join in on their nonsense games. Mario dug around and came across a minion suit that fit him like a glove, so he slipped it on and felt the power of the minion coursing through his veins. He was suddenly extremely hungry for bananas, found that he spoke their strange language, and learned that the life of a minion isn't all laughter and gibberish- sometimes these little guys turn purple and wig out...
Happiness is wearing this Banana Power-Up t-shirt by DC Visual Arts while playing your favorite video game or watching your favorite animated movie, minion speak dictionary not included.
He's got a face only a mother could love, or at least we assume he does since he's always wearing that strange mask of his, but if you're looking for good looks you should look elsewhere, like to his gal pal Julie. But if you're looking for some serious muscle, someone who can crush those creeps keeping you up at night then the Maxx is defiintely your guy! He's so big and scary that just wearing his toothy masked visage on your shirt should help protect you from Mr. Gone and the Isz which are always around him, but if you're ever feeling trapped with nowhere else to turn remember there's always that outback in your mind...
Keep your torso protected at all times with this Maxx and Crossbones t-shirt by Dann Matthews, it's the fun way to show the world you like your comic books cerebral and surreal!
Since the show introduced the Showcase Showdown's current form in 1972 the value of the prizes have gone up considerably, and nowadays it's not uncommon for a contestant to walk away with a prize package valued at over twenty thousand dollars.
To say Neo-Nazis are loathed and hated by most is an understatement, but they’ve become accustomed to physical assaults and death threats like mice are becoming immune to poison, so new methods are needed for handling these hateful bigots.
For 25 years a Neo-Nazi group has been using the German town of Wunsiedel as the location for their annual rally, much to the townsfolks chagrin, but this year the townies got their revenge- by tricking the Neo-Nazis into raising money for an anti-Nazi charity.
Contributions for Exit Deutschland were pledged based on how far each Neo-Nazi marched, and signs were posted all around the charity course urging them on and informing them they were now marching to get rid of their own kind.
At the end of the day ten thousand Euros were raised for Exit Deutschland and the Nazi group was made to look foolish, sounds like a win-win situation to me!
Bobby sometimes wondered why he kept running around with those Winchester brothers, especially because between the two of 'em you'd have a hard time making one brain, but when the supernatural stuff hit the fan those boys were there for ol' Bobby. Even though Bobby has been gone for a while both Sam and Dean swear they can hear him calling them both idjits from beyond the grave, although it's usually just Crowley tryin' ta get under their skin by trying to sound like poor old Bobby...
Show the world you have a supernatural sense of smile, and a delightfully dark sense of humor, with this Idjits t-shirt by Dooomcat, it's the fantastic way to show your love for a fallen TV hero!
Ron was once referred to as a recreation loving butterfly trapped in a net by the Parks department, and despite his attempt to get fired he has been promoted many times since his capture.Swanson is like a moustachioed masterpiece, perfected in the 1980s and carried through life by his passion for woodworking and a desire to one day eat his body weight in steak.

Everyone has been wondering what happened to all of those dinosaurs since that one Jurassic era park closed down, a question which is easy to answer- they've been in the park. It's not a fancy park full of electrified fences, automated defenses and guided tours, no this park is just for swinging, and see sawing, and carouseling like you used to do in the good old days!

The holidays are a bit different in the town of Silent Hill, because Santa can't get through the thick cloud of fog that hangs over the city at all times, and even if he could he wouldn't stand a chance against that thing with the metal pyramid on his head! The only gift you can find on the Hill is the gift of everlasting fear, and an overwhelming dread that will make every day a holiday in hell. They say people lose their minds around the holidays, well if you're trapped in Silent Hill you'd better hope that's true!

Tired of being talked to and treated like little girls, the trio decided to take the power back and puff up their powerful reputation with a little naughtiness. Poison Oakina began to blossom the amazing ability to talk to plants, while the one they used to treat like a warm cup of butter showed she had claws and liked to scratch. But what about the bubbles? She was busy being bubbly, but she'd added a bit of battiness to her personality and now wanted to be called Quinn...

These guys might not look like they know how to party, but the sourpuss faces are just poses they use for the cameras, and behind the red curtain these Socialists love to socialize! Oh wait, they're Communist aren't they? Isn't that the same thing? Ask Castro when he's had a few too many and he'll just nod and laugh awkwardly, but get a drunken Stalin started on the subject and he'll blab your ear off all night! Lenin likes to keep his dignity, so he parties like the world police are outside the door and keeps things low key, while Marx is the kinda guy you find passed out in the corner with a lampshade on his head and a sickle stuck in the wall behind him. But what about Mao you say? Mao's busy trying to say tongue!
Show your love of political parties with this The Communist Party (Original) t-shirt by tomburns, and show the world even stuffy old Commies can get their drank on!
