we’ve compiled 20 of the most notable brand fails from 2012—a nice dose of ad-enfreude to fill your evil rubbernecking hearts with joy. Just be glad it wasn’t you.
Most of these just leave you shaking your head in amazement at the colossal stupidity of some of these companies.
FX has announced that the animated characters of Archer are turning into real people and invading four cities for live readings with the cast and creator of the show! Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Chris Parnell, Jessica Walter, Amber Nash, and Lucky Yates will all perform some of the more memorable scenes from the show.
OMG! My love of all things Archer knows no bounds so when I saw this pop up in my RSS feed, I fervently hoped and prayed (even while knowing it would never happen) that my little backwater of Portland, Oregon would be one of the locations.
Of course it isn’t because God hates me.
But, if you live in LA, Philadelphia, New York or San Francisco (and I’d seriously consider driving to San Francisco to see this – if I actually had a car…), then get yourself down there and watch the awesomeness in person.
For those of us not lucky enough to be able to attend, I can only console you with this “Best of Archer” YouTube compilation:
One of my all time favorite TV shows is Justified – great cast, great writing, great stories:
The theme song is a lot of fun too. Kind of a mix of Bluegrass and Rap – yeah, it’s a little mindblowing. 🙂
So I went looking for it on Amazon and found this version that is called “Long Hard Times To Come (Theme from the F/X TV Series “Justified”)” but if you know the song or the show, you’ll recognize the lyrics but note it’s just a “cover” of the show’s theme song.
The actual theme, as done by Gangstagrass is also called “Long Hard Times To Come (Theme from “Justified”)” but is only available from the iTunes store. Weird. But for $129, it’s worth the hassle.
The Best Food Inventions Of The Year.
Some of this food makes you never want to eat again but some of it makes you think you could eat it every day for the rest of your life.
#1, #4, #7 and, God help me, #16 look DELICIOUS.
Some of these are heartbreaking but all are incredible photos.

$260 for a PENCIL!?
A premium pencil in precious Californian cedar…
If it’s so fucking precious WHY ARE YOU MAKING PENCILS OUT OF IT!?
This is the perfect thing for New Media Douchebags and “more money than brains” hipsters to buy themselves. If I see someone using one, I will stab them in the eye with it…

Don’t get me wrong – I think “beauty pageants” are stupid. But if you’re going to do it, be honest about it. This is honest – “All we care about is your ass.” 🙂
