A marketing campaign for CoverGirl’s football-inspired collection of game day looks has taken on an entirely new pall in the wake of video footage showing former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in an elevator.
CoverGirl’s slogan for the ad series — “Get your game face on” — was meant to encourage fans to make up their faces in the colors of their favorite team. But a version of the ad aimed at Ravens fans was unofficially edited and passed around on social media, tackling the issue of domestic violence and how the NFL has addressed it…
And we all lived happily ever after (except for Facebook owning our lives).
Oh to have those lost, turtlenecked, possibly-not-good-but-who-knows episodes back.
#6. Nearly 100 Episodes of Doctor Who (and Other Shows)
We bring up the cult sci-fi series about a reincarnating time-traveler because it’s currently missing 97 of its 800 episodes after the BBC had wiped the tapes containing them, in a foolish but noble effort to weaken the show’s fanatical fanbase, probably. It apparently didn’t work, though, because ever since then, BBC has been desperately scouring the globe for the lost episodes, some of which have turned up in attics, garage sales, far-flung former parts of the British Empire like Nigeria or Hong Kong, and the basement of a Mormon Church in London.
These dudes are fucking legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
Needs to be reblogged.
Hey, bikers are AWESOME.
These guys are amazing people.
