Crews filming a commercial for Scion in Northern California had a near miss early this month with a deer who just wanted a little screen time.
A professional driver was cruising along winding roads in the new car when a deer jumped out in front of him.
“As I come across this left hand turn, over a crest and onto a straight, I’m minding my own business driving, trying to navigate through these unknown roads and all of a sudden I see this black figure just prancing around … at that moment I knew, ‘Oh sh*t, something’s wrong,’” said Ken Gushi, a professional driver.
“As I got on the brakes, I see this deer pop out of the mountain, run in front of the car, probably as close as two-to-three feet,” Gushi continued.
The deer scampered off, the shoot continued. The video was posted early this month, but hasn’t attracted much attention until now.
McDonald’s may have dumped the pink goo, but it’s adding an even brighter color to its menu. The fast food giant will sell leprechaun-green shamrock shakes at 14,000 of its U.S. restaurants, according to CNN Money. The shakes have been around for a long time but haven’t been a chain regular until now.
The shamrock shake itself isn’t new. It’s been offered by McDonald’s restaurants at or around St. Patrick’s Day since 1970. But in the past, only certain restaurants offered the familiar green shake.
In its 42 years of existence, the shamrock shake has developed what McDonald’s refers to as a “cult-like” following among certain aficionados who prize its vivid-green hue.
So where does the shamrock shake gets its color? It’s basically a vanilla shake with mint flavor, said (spokeswoman Ashlee) Yingling, and it gets the green hue from the syrup.

A Democratic representative in the Mississippi statehouse, Steve Holland, has filed proposed legislation in Jackson to rename the Gulf of Mexico the Gulf of America. Technically, he calls the Gulf, “the body of water that is located directly south of Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties,” according to Wonkette.
He wants H.B. 150 to take effect on July 1. Just in time for, well you know.
With a name like Holland, it seems like he would have started a little closer to home. Rep. Steve America has a nice ring to it?
As reported by New Orleans site Gambit.com, Steve Colbert speculated after the Gulf Oil Spill of 2010 that we should call it “The Gulf of America,” because “we broke it, we bought it.”
This Texan goes all Kristen Bell on us after receiving a great big hug from a King Penguin at Sea World in San Antonio. The visit was a part of a special behind-the-scenes penguin encounter her husband (behind the camera) got her for her birthday. From the look on her face, it’s worth it.
She got emotional with the aquatic bird–who’s apparently extra-affectionate since he’s looking for a mate–saying “Awww, you’re the best penguin EVER!”
So many things can go wrong during a live newscast, especially when animals are involved.
On Wednesday, an 85-pound Argentine Mastiff named Max bit Denver news anchor Kyle Dyer in the face during a broadcast. Dyer was interviewing Max’s owner and the firefighter who rescued Max from a frozen pond when the dog snapped at the anchor.
Model Ioana Spangenberg uses corsets to make her look even thinner
A Romanian model who says she never diets has such a narrow midriff her figure resembles that of a Barbie Doll.
Thirty-year-old Ioana Spangenberg attributes her 32-20-32 measurements to genes, not counting calories. In fact, she laments that she can’t seem to put on the pounds, a complaint that probably won’t earn much sympathy from American women suffering through salads and low-fat everything.
It’s her tiny tummy, you see.
Sexy or not?
“No one seems to believe it, but every day I eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time,” the 5-foot-7 model told the Sun. “I just have a small stomach. It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band — if I eat too much, I feel sick.”
Of course, having the waistline of a wasp has its benefits. She’s been able to achieve some success as an online model, enhancing her shape with corsets.
Even so, she says she would like to gain weight “so I don’t look so shocking.”
Let’s hope she can – because a thin waist is a terrible thing to mind.
Have you heard the one about the Louis Vuitton condom?
Actually there are at least a hundred jokes on Twitter. So far. About the alleged condom on sale by the high-end French fashion house. However, mes amis, it is not an LV product. Even if it is priced at $68.
