If this sport doesn't become the basis for a new, sexy dystopian movie that possibly features LL Cool J, then I have no faith left in the Hollywood movie machine.

Nivea recently launched a new series of ads with the tagline "Look like you give a damn." One, in particular, features a neatly-groomed black man holding a severed head (presumably his own past self) that features an afro, goatee and scowl, about to hurl it across a parking lot. The problem is that this ad, in particular, features another tag line: namely, "Re-civilize yourself." Ouch.

Update: Apology already!

A Disney exec was recently quoted as saying that "People say ‘It’s all about the story.’ When you’re making tentpole films, bullshit." So, clearly, he's an asshole. But in case you want to know more about why he's an asshole, please read this well thought-out dissection of his bullshit.

Who would have thought David Letterman would end up the new Salman Rushdie? Especially since there are so many better reasons to jihad against someone.
