Vilnius is the capitol city of Lithuania – a place where they feel very strongly about cars wrongly parked in specifically allocated bicycle lanes. In this clip the city’s mayor, Arturas Zuokas, can be seen literally crushing an “illegally parked” luxurious blue Mercedes – with an armored vehicle!
An official iPad app for Skype has been pulled mere hours after being made available for free via the iTunes Store. No specific reason was given, except for a Skype tweet claiming the release was “premature.” Awkward.
A clip of a distorted interview with a young black boy has raised questions about ethics in journalism in America. Responding to a news reporter’s question about what he’d like to be when he grows up, the boy replied: “I’m going to have me a gun! I’m going to be the police!” Guess which part of that sentence did not make it to TV?
On Friday Masizole Mnqasela, a DA Member of Parliament, was found not guilty of raping a schoolgirl last year. At the time he invited her to his house “for leftover braai meat” but claims nothing else happened. He branded the charge against him a political smear campaign, adding that he is too sexy to have to rape anyone.
An unemployed man, 29, has become one of Britain’s youngest grandparents after his daughter gave birth at 14. Shem Davies and his former girlfriend Kelly John, 30, were “overjoyed” when their daughter Tia, who was born when her parents were 15, gave birth to little Gracie earlier this month. Tia’s boyfriend is 15.
Victor Burgos is one loco ese! After appearing on the local police department’s most wanted list, he posted a video of himself walking into a police station online. He also taunted the police with this Facebook status: “Catch me if you can, I’m in Brooklyn”. Guess where they caught him?
I don’t know about you, but I for one am feeling like a real tit! I can’t believe I fell for that silly City Press article claiming Julius Malema uses his secret trust fund to fund his lavish lifestyle. It turns out he’s actually a young philanthropist and uses it to “fund charitable causes!”
Today we received this harrowing report from San Francisco by a brave 2oceansViber. Before you continue, note that we indemnify ourselves from any angst or emotional complications that you may suffer as a result of reading the following letter.
Last week we told you that the National Union of Mineworkers were planning a “massive strike”. Lesiba Seshoka, their spokesperson, has now confirmed that 200 000 gold workers will down their tools at 6pm this afternoon and that “there is no chance of negotiations to halt the strike.”
The pictures you are about to see involve an accident caused by a person in Monte Carlo. This person collided a Bentley with a Mercedes, Ferrari, Porsche AND an Aston Martin – resulting in total damages of R7.6m.
When it comes to the food industry, one must always be on the lookout for exciting, new trends. As you know, Ass-Flavoured Products are very “in” right now and it therefore makes perfect sense for the Caltex garage at the Waterfront to launch a titillating new range of Pieman’s ass flavoured pies.
Earlier this week Seth told you about the “Give Respect, Get Respect” campaign in America. It seems four- and two-wheeled road users in the UK might also benefit from this message. After seeing a video of himself assaulting a cyclist on the internet, a motorist has now offered his apology, saying he is “severely embarrassed.”
2 December sees the South African release of Real Steel, featuring Hugh Jackman. It is about boxing, but instead of humans we are talking robots in the fighting ring! We can bring you the very first South African look at images from this “gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future.” You are welcome.
Zebedia Mpofu allegedly had the audacity to tell a colleague at work that a soft drink and packet of biscuits he was having for lunch came courtesy of Zimbabwe’s economic policies under Robert Mugabe’s main rival, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai. Thank goodness someone heard and reported this traitor, who now has to stand trail for insulting and/or undermining Mugabe.
In the wake of the Norwegian terror attacks, a cartoonist and writer from Norway has written a letter to the creators of South Park. In it he appeals to them to help defuse the damage that Anders Behring Breivik has caused over the weekend, by writing an episode of South Park about it. Read his full message inside.
Look, it is very difficult to say anything polite about the tow truck industry. The same goes for a camel toe. But a 2oceansViber recently snapped some quality humour pics over in Miami of a tow truck company called “Camel Towing & Service”. Very clever – see pics inside.
The Diversity High school in Alberton certainly lives up to its name when it comes to punishing their learners. In this shocking cell phone video the headmaster can be seen viciously beating a Grade 8 boy with a hosepipe. In another video a teacher forces a pupil’s hand into a bucket of cold water before striking the girl’s hands with a chalkboard duster.
For an organisation with a slogan like “Fight, Produce, Learn”, the ANCYL certainly doesn’t seem to adhere to the “learn” part. For the third time this year, their website has been hacked. Yesterday, a message appeared on the homepage that reads: “HA HA HA. I have a 16 Million Rand house and all of you don’t!!!!”
Are you a man (or a woman) who is able to turn menial, everyday tasks into a spectacular event? Then you most certainly have a place in our hearts here at 2oceansVibe. Our latest hero is a guy who makes chapatti (also known as roti) like a boss. Check out his mad skills inside.
Earlier this week it was reported that Julius Malema was building a R16 million home for himself. And, as if shopping for the right furniture to put inside it isn’t stressful already, he now has to put up with cocky journalists asking him where the money came from. Especially if the answer seems pretty obvious: “It’s a private matter. I’m not a public servant.”
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said yesterday that workers in the coal sector would go on strike following failed wage negotiations. These are the people that have to make sure Eskom has enough coal to keep on providing electricity to the country. Their bosses offered a seven percent increase, while they thought 14% was fairer.
Nonhle Thema single-handedly put tweeting excessively in CAPS LOCK and ellipsis back on the map. She has also spent the last month telling her Twitter followers exactly how awesome and untouchable she is… BOOM! But it turns out there might be such a thing as bad publicity after all. You see, M-Net’s Vuzu and Nonhle have apparently “mutually decided to put their on-screen relationship on hold.”
Zurich, being a progressive city and all, has a popular red-light district. But still, no resident living close-by wants to see two (or more) people engage in a game of adult twister. Surprisingly it is the local police who have come up with a solution in the form of drive-in sex boxes. Yes, it is exactly what you think it is.
Bridget Moleboheng was due to give birth over December and was taken to the Sebokeng Hospital in the Vaal Triangle. But when the time came she was forced to deliver her own baby. The only “help” she received from the nurses on duty was when they took time out of laughing and chatting in the corridor outside her room to tell her to keep quiet.
It is a well-known fact that Lady Gaga “draws inspiration” from various sources. And a lot of times she actually receives positive feedback from those she openly imitates. But Bette Midler is certainly not one of those people. The famous redhead recently took to Twitter to berate Gaga for copying her mermaid in a wheelchair routine. “Keep the firecracker tits – the mermaid’s mine!”
Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin seems to be loved by the ladies. So much so that a new online campaign urges young women to take off their clothes in support of his presidency. In this strange video, a sexy blond can be seen scribbling “I will tear my clothes off for Putin” on a white top in red lipstick before starting to undo her clothes.
The world of ridiculous internet trends is a highly competitive one. There’s photo bombing, fail videos, planking, and most recently owling – all highly popular in their day, but now quickly becoming old news. I’m told the current meme flavour is called “leisure diving”, and involves jumping into a body of water whilst striking a “leisure pose” in mid-air. Examples inside.
Like bootleggers from the olden days, three American girls recently set up an illegal lemonade stand. They actually had the audacity to try and pawn their goods off to the unsuspecting public WITHOUT a city food and beverage permit! Luckily, good police work took care of that and the girls’ illegal and dodgy activities have now been brought to an end.
The image of Jesus has appeared on some very random items in the past including a piece of bubblegum, a Kit Kat Chunky, and even an iron. But, according to an American couple, JC has now appeared on a discarded Walmart shopping receipt. What’s even freakier is the fact that they first saw the image just as they came home from church one morning!
Michael Wolff is a very influential American journalist who has lately been doing a lot of television interviews. This makes sense, seeing as he wrote a biography of media mogul Rupert Murdoch two years ago, titled “The Man Who Owns the News”. But see what happens when the BBC wrongly introduces him live on air as Ben Walker, baseball editor for the Associated Press! Awkward.
