Paris Hilton's witty response to being featured in McCain's latest Obama attack ad.

For the record, she didn't come up with the idea or write it; it is the brainchild of an Adam McKay and Chris Henchy.

Another YouTube find, a bit long, but HI-larious – makes me really want to watch Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search For The Next Doll!

[EDIT] I found the episodes on YouTube (chopped up into parts, but still worth watching until I can find it in better quality), and they are so funny! There’s drama from the first episode – LOVE IT! This is absolutely my favorite show of the moment.

One of my medium-annoyance pet peeves is the jerk with a Bluetooth headset in his/her ear, standing next to me in the __________ (ex. store, elevator, etc) OR the people who just leave it in their ear everywhere they go, like they’re some big business executive, when really, they’re a skinny kid gossiping about who-dated-who-last-week.

Other times, Bluetooth headsets can add confusion, such as in the case of the unfortunately desperate guy below.

Interactive Mirror
IconNicholson (an interactive design firm) has developed an interactive mirror that functions beyond the traditional coated glass. They “actually function as a three-part, high-resolution digital screen that projects a virtual image of selected fashions onto the potential buyer. The resulting image is then forwarded to a special webpage, where logged-in friends can post their opinions about the ensemble.” Designer Nanette Lepore (seen in the photo) plans to install these mirrors in her New York, Tokyo and Las Vegas boutiques, apparently in hopes that her shoppers will utilize this new technology to further develop their dependent personalities.

This is as fruitless as those software programs that utilize a photo of yourself and superimpose different hairstyles on it — in the end, you’re still going to have to try the darn thing on…

Instead of Big Brother, it’s New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose image is defiantly shattered by the same blond female athlete — except she’s got a 2007 update: an iPod & a logo on her shirt that is later identified as the one for

The tagline for the attack: “On Jan. 14, the Democratic primary will begin. And you’ll see why 2008 won’t be like 1984.”

An updated Apple symbol — transformed into an O — is followed by the dramatically emerging logo:

Obama’s campaign says it had nothing to do with the video.
