Paris Hilton: SodaStream

Paris Hilton rocks a cape made of plastic bottles that apparently were all found in the stomachs of sea turtles.

This ad illustrates the idea of a new category in the Google Play Store which allows your pets to be occupied when you’re not around. A dream come true, right? As farfetched as it sounds (pun intended), I did find myself chuckling at the chicken playing Angry Birds. Check out this adorable joke below.

Zappos – The In Secure Box

I bet if you’re like me, you get nervous leaving your important packages unattended. Well, have no fear! Zappos introduced their ‘In Secure Box’ on Saturday; A thiefproof packaging box that eliminates package theft. How? By being invisible.

Introducing HALLMARK-E

Too good to be true? Meet her below.
