Well, I guess it was only a matter of time before the word ‘irony’ stopped being able to quite cover it. The German bank Sparkasse Chemnitz have launched a Karl Marx credit card, after the father of Communism won in an online voting poll for new credit card designs. Somewhere a grave is spinning.
So there was this scene towards the end of the first season of Game of Thrones – that popular, high budget, swords/sorcery/nudity show that HBO’s running – where a bunch of heads were lined up on spikes. And director’s commentary from the recently-released Season 1 DVD has revealed that one of the heads belonged to ex-president George Bush.
Sweden has been handing its Twitter account to a different citizen every week for the past seven months. Which has been great for the most part, with priests and lesbian truck drivers representing the country – except the latest @sweden handler has been catching some flack for trying to figure out “whats the fuzz with jews.”

Ha! Model Melissa Stetten found herself getting hit on by vaguely-famous actor Brian Presley on a flight out of Los Angeles. Using this new thing called ‘the internet,’ she identified Presley as a married, outspoken Christian with a five-year-old kid. So she livetweeted his ridiculously awkward attempt at hooking up with her. Watch it unfold below.
A 2oceansViber recently sent us this picture and we had to share it. It’s nice to know that when you’re stranded on a paradise island, you can still get “Elegant C0ck”, and that the quality is guaranteed. Apparently it’s some sort of mosquito coil. I can’t see the relevance to the name. [Thanks Adrian!]
Okes – you think you’ve seen all the entertainment Rivonia has to offer, right? Wrong! There’s cool and then there is Avastar cool! Mike Basson is the owner of this exciting new night club in Joburg. This guy has managed to successfully fuse the world of nightclubs with…the world of Avatar (the movie with the blue people). Check out his promo video after the jump.
We would like you to sit down before watching this video, during which you might experience a sudden overwhelming sense of awesomeness. Is our latest addition to the Boss Hall of Fame a bartender? Is he a ninja? Or perhaps a ninja bartender? You tell us.
Yesterday’s Google doodle celebrated the 78th birthday of Robert Moog, creator of the famous “moog” synthesisers. And while most of us amused ourselves with it for a couple of minutes, today’s addition to the 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame took that extra step. Check him perform “Aerodynamic” by Daft Punk (whilst staring at the camera in a creepy way) – like a boss.
“So many of us look to the wisdom of the East, to solve our problems in the West.” Those are the words of filmmaker Vikram Ghandi, who set out to see how to see legitimate many of the sources of Eastern wisdom were, by impersonating a guru and then gaining a massive, legitimate following. Click through for the trailer and more details.
Marking another notch in the slow build-up to the sequel to that thing you used to like to quote, here’s the teaser trailer for Paramount’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. There’s no hint of story, but it reintroduces the Channel 4 News Team and offers some vague one-liners. Which I guess is what sequels are all about.
Opening a beer with a chainsaw is not a job for anyone. And the difference between joining our 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame, and potentially winning a Darwin award, is this guy. Step inside and see how it should be done properly.
I know, today was supposed to be Facebook’s special moment, but when a sovereign state threatens to sue a corporation like Google, it’s sort of a thing. Especially when a sovereign state sues a corporation because of a disagreement over how a map should be labelled. Seriously.
Fancy embossed invitations to attend a preview of The Dictator, Sacha Baron Cohen’s new film, are being sent around Washington D.C. – ostensibly from “President Robert Mugabe and the Ministry of Education, Sport, Art, and Culture.” Zimbabwe’s art ministry has assured reporters that it hasn’t come from them.
Last year Stimorol rolled out a series of ads to promote their Infinity range, in the TV spots gum-chewers were caught in an infinite loop of increasingly bizarre situations. In their latest radvertising venture we’re taken to even more bizarre heights, featuring an anthro-dog, a bouncer in a tie-dyed one piece and a creepy man in a polo-neck.
Because what last year’s homage to excessive, overblown action movies needed most of all was a sequel. Starring even more overhauled action heroes – like Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger – and, at a guess, more slow-motion explosions and weapon puns, it looks like something you guys should probably watch.
Comedian, actor, writer, director and presenter, Rob Van Vuuren, needs no introduction. Tonight, Rob will undergo severe comedic treatment at the hands of his colleagues and friends. The event, taking place at Mercury Live in Cape Town, promises to leave your stomach muscles in agony. Details after the jump.
Old Spice – makers of the best TV adverts in the world – has a new campaign. In it, they urge the average guy on the street to simply believe “in yoursmellf.” But what does a skinny white guy who wins all the sports, has a sophisticated group of friends, and dating Heather Graham have to do with it all? You’ll have to see for yourself.
In the modern times in which we find ourselves, the definition of a “real man” has become somewhat blurred. Male grooming, manscaping and metrosexuality have all but replaced rugged faces, calloused hands and auto-mechanical knowledge. As a result of this, a few brave men have set about creating a documentary that seeks to answer the question, what is a real man?
A reader has sent us a video called, “Wakeboarding: Boss Level”. The description under the footage reads: “No swimsuit. No rope. No driver. No problem.” I don’t need to say anything else, apart from formally welcoming our latest addition to the 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame!
Mitch Hurwitz, Arrested Development creator, has revealed that the long-mourned show will be premiering it’s 10-episode fourth season in one huge lump on Netflix’s Watch Instantly feature in 2013. You’ve got a year to come up with a plausible excuse to spend a day off from work to watch the entire season.
UC San Diego physicist, Dmitri Krioukov got ticketed recently for running a stop sign – which isn’t unusual. What is unusual is the fact that, rather than pay the $400 fine and move on, Krioukov wrote a mathematical paper proving that the cop who ticketed him had a “perception of reality that did not properly reflect reality.”

The year is 1987 and Tom Cruise is a leather-clad, rock god with baboon called “Hey, Man”. I don’t think much needs to be added. Click through for the video.
The “Skip It” game during a Masters practice round involve golfers playfully trying to skip a ball across a lake, up a 10-foot bank and onto the green. But our latest addition to the 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame, Martin Kaymer, did more than simply reaching the green at Augusta’s 16th hole on Monday. He sank a hole in one as well…like a boss.
“Move over Paris and Kim, ’cause I’m into some real kinky shit!” In the spirit of April Fool’s Day, Charlize Theron teamed up with the guys at FunnyOrDie to “leak her sex tape”. This was obviously fake, but disturbingly hilarious at the same time. Check it out after the jump!
April Fool pranks played by people tend to be either cruel or embarrassing. April Fool pranks played by tech companies, however, are charming and endearing attempts at being funny for one day every year – and this year’s haul of PR stunts is actually pretty good. Check them out after the jump.
