Science World museum in collaboration with Rethink Canada created a series of brilliant ambient and billboard ads dedicated to promoting science in Vancouver. One of the most eye-catching ones was probably the 6000$ worth of billboard covered in pure gold with the words “2 oz. of gold can cover a billboard”. Two ounces may not sound like a lot, but just in case, Science World hired two guards to look after it day and night…
Remember one of the most impressive blow j0bs you’ve seen, a photo project by a Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern? When his pictures of people facing a strong air current received so much attention worldwide, Tadao decided to take this idea abroad – luckily, that’s where New Yorker decided to step in and help organize the project in several cities. On 28-29 September, Tadao did this in Leipzig, Germany, and we’re excited to share his newest shots.
Remember Jason Lee and the crazy pictures of his beautiful daughters? Well, it seems that he’s got some serious competition fighting for the World’s Best Father award. Dave Engledow is creating probably the wackiest scrapbook ever showing himself and his daughter Alice Bee in highly precarious situations.
This all started back on September 8th, 2008 when someone uploaded a picture of Reese Witherspoon holding a spoon on the art message board b3ta. A picture next to it showed the actress with the spoon removed, and a caption that read “Reese Withoutaspoon”. However, the phenomena itself didn’t spread till 2012, when a Tumblr user i-am-oregonian posted a pun with Jafar from the 1992 Disney feature film Aladdin. Seeing more and more hilarious celebrity name puns popping up every day, we couldn’t resist making a list of the funniest ones out there.
Russian wildlife photographer Nikolai Zinoviev has probably the coolest job in the world. Imagine yourself following baby bears all day, watching them be goofy and cute. Nikolai Zinoviev spent many days watching them hunt for salmon, swim in a lake and walk through forests in Kamchatka and Alaska. As it usually happens, the cubs strike the most funny, cuddly and lovely poses.
The Japanese came up with an idea on how to change the traditional brutal-looking dog muzzles into something more pleasant. Their product, called Quack, is a funny muzzle that’s shaped as a duck’s bill. Put it on your dog’s head and you’ll have a four-legged friendly duck. Hopefully your dog won’t get too offended by this accessory.
Controversy sells big time – and if you publish a book that in the reviews is called “so weird that it’s sort of irresistible” – then you’re doomed to go down the road of success. That’s what happened to a New Zealand author Burton Silver and illustrator Heather Busch, after the release of their comedy book “Why Paint Cats: The Ethics of Feline Aesthetics”, a collection of bizarrely colored portraits of cats.

Commercial advertising photographer Tim Tadder just finished shooting a new project he calls “Water Wigs”. Tim and his colleagues came up with this crazy idea while working with a mannequin in a studio. They realized that water made cool hair like shapes which worked exceptionally well on bald heads. So he found a bunch of awesome bald men and threw water balloons at their heads to create hilarious water wigs.

French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with French art director Alexis Persani to dress ancient Louvre’s sculptures into something more trendy and up-to-date. To create ‘Street Stone’, Caillard first photographed the statues and his friends in similar poses. Then Persani stacked the shots on top of each other in Photoshop, erasing everything but the clothes from the top layer. The results are hilarious! It also shows that clothes have an enormous impact on the way one is perceived.
