I’m all for creativity when it comes to events, but a McDonald’s wedding is definitely pushing it. McDonald’s outlets in Hong Kong are now offering “McWeddings.”
The complete package, launched in January, includes pink invitation cards emblazoned with golden arches, McDonald’s food, wedding gifts and decor featuring the Hamburglar and Ronald McDonald, all for 9,999 Hong Kong dollars ($1,270). Couples can also shell out extra to rent a “white balloon” gown or purchase a balloon corsage and balloon wedding cake.
On Valentine’s Day, a man threw a surprise engagement party for his girlfriend at a McDonald’s offering weddings and other formal events. The “cake” was a stack of apple pies, and the couple received a pair of commemorative crystal M rings. It was the first formal booking, but McDonald’s said two wedding parties are confirmed for this year and 70 other couples are in talks.
Just in case you think I’m making this up, check out the promotional pictures below.
Found it here.
Check out this silly video and the posters to promote it.
This week, American Apparel’s hiring guidelines have been released. And if you’re looking for a job in retail look another way since these are very very very specific guidelines.
Silly guidelines for girls:
a) Makeup is to be kept to a minimal- please take this very seriously. Liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner and eyeshadow are advised against; mascara must look very natural (ie. should not be clumpy or a color that does not compliment your skin and haircolor). Blush must not be overdone- should not have glitter or sparkles. Liquid foundation is prohibited (undereye concealer is understandable if it looks natural- ie. not clumpy or caked on, must match your skin tone). Please do not use a shiny gloss on your lips; any lipcolor must be subtle.
b) Eyebrows must not be overplucked. Full eyebrows are very much encouraged. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color.
c) We encourage long, healthy, natural hair, so please be advised of the following:
-Hair must be kept your natural color.
-Blow-drying hair excessively could cause heat damage, so this is advised against.
-“Bangs” or “fringe” are advised against. It is not part of the direction we’re moving in.
And guidelines for the poor guys:
a) Hair should look natural. Excessive product to the extent of creating stiffness and an unnatural or greasy appearance to your hair is advised against.
b) Eyebrows should be natural. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color or overpluck them.
c) Males should not wear makeup.
d) Facial hair needs to be kept clean and well groomed. Any mustache or goatee of a contemporary style are advised against.
e) No gauges allowed whatsoever.
At least I’m on the same page as them regarding men plucking their eyebrows.
Am I the only one that thinks this is extra nutty?
Apparently, American Apparel thinks this is nutty too.
Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Even though I’m not expecting roses or chocolate, I certainly wouldn’t be able to appreciate it if someone sent me this. Not even the best intentions can disguise that the Hug E Gram must be one of the silliest things sold on the internet. This is its description:
A Hug-E-Gram lets you give your hug to someone when you can’t be there! It is the hug that lasts. You will understand how very special the moment can be as the love and sentiment from you comes through. The Hug-E-Gram is available in 3 different colors (Black, Red or Salmon). After you order, you may record a personalized message that will arrive with your Hug-E-Gram.
Imagine getting this in the mail for valentines. Would you actually put it on? Or would you leave it in a corner for the dog to chew on?
I wonder what the card would say. Maybe Hunny here’s a hug for my favorite part of you. Your love handles.
What would you write in the card if you were to send a Hug-E-Gram? Share it in the comments.
I think Twilight fans are a bit much. I’m not against them– I’ve read all the books and seen the movies. I do see why they like it, but I think the obsession can get a little extreme.
I thought they were creepy but never THIS creepy. A girl watching New Moon in Michigan was actually bitten this weekend while watching New Moon. It wasn’t a sexy nibble gone wrong or a hungry moviegoer who mistook her for a snack but a 45 year old pervert sitting in the seat behind her.
He didn’t break the skin, and he hasn’t been caught yet. I assume she’ll be too creeped out to go to the movies anytime soon. I’m sure I would be too (after being disinfected, sanitized and had my tetanus shot)
Though it might seem that most of the girls are into vampires with the Twilight, True Blood and Vampire Diaries craze I hope biting doesn’t become the new pick up line. Unless you’re Robert Pattison and she has a Twilight tattoo, I’m pretty sure it won’t work.
I’ve seen a lot of webpages report on the Baby Shaped Pears that are being grown by a Chinese farmer. He’s been trying to figure them out in 2003 and he reportedly grew 10,000 pears this year. In my opinion, they look more like Buddah than a baby, but no matter what they look like they’re not worth the $5 pounds he’s selling them for. He makes them but putting a plastic mold around them at what he’s emasured to be the perfect time and taking them out of the mold before the ripen.
I find them very creepy, and wouldn’t consider eating one.
From a marketing point of view it would be interesting to see if brands would dear to dwell into this. I won’t be surprised if we soon see Mickey shaped apples in Disney World or Logos on certain vegetables.
There are Twilight fans that are die hard fans. I read the books, loved them and fell in love with Edward, but I still don’t get how some people get so crazily obsessed. I have been able to study them up close (my sister is a twilight crazy fan) and I think they’re quite amusing. Last Halloween I made her a Mrs. Cullen costume and I thought that was extreme. Apparently, there’s definitely crazier fans than she is.
Here are some crazy Twilight things I’ve found lately.
Twilight Lip Venom
This product should be shaken before use to represent the blending of the human and vampire worlds
It also shows the financial power of the Twilight Fan since they’re already experiencing shipping delays because of the response.
First, it was teh Sweethearts that were changed. The signature classic phrases were replaced with “Dazzle,” “Bite Me,” “Live 4-Ever,” “I [heart] EC” and “Forks.” They apparently were a success since for the new movie the Twilight cast is getting “New Moon” Chocolate Bars.
This is, by far, the most amazing one. Tattoos. You can’t throw away a lip gloss bottle, or hide the chocolate box and pretend it never happened. It’ll be there forever. These fans got quotes, logos and images tattooed on their bodies, and most are nothing near small. I wonder what they’ll think about them in 10 to 15 years. The craziest one is definitely the Robert Pattinson one. What was she thinking? That he’d see the creepy obsessive tattoo and decide to marry her?
My country never ceases to surprise me. Dominicans have a knack for taking advantage of any situation and getting some money, or beer, out of it. Everywhere, everyone seems to be bringing up the King of Pop and anything they know about him, and Dominicans won’t be left behind.vMichael Jackson died in LA, and his only link to the DR has to be exploited. He married Lisa Marie Presley there in 1994 and his wedding certificate somehow got itself into the wrong hands. It’s on sale on ebay until July 14th.
If you’re interested, and can afford it, it’s on sale on ebay for US$50,000.‘
The The Anonymous Hugging Wall is an installation by Keetra Dean Dixon that can be found in London. Sadly, the webpage doesn’t say where I can find it or how long it’s up for.
I’m sure you can’t help but smile when you walk by.
