  • The Most Expressive Dog Portraits You’ll Ever See [17 Photos]

    Germany-based photographer Elke Vogelsang mostly shoots straightforward, serious portraits of people and pets, but in her spare time she likes to capture her own dogs at their most absurd moments. These photos feature Vogelsang’s three rescue dogs Noodles, Loli, and Scout. Noodles and Scout are beautiful Galgo Español mixes and Loli is a true mutt, but all three make for incredible models. Check out more of Elke Vogelsang’s portrait work at her Facebook page.

  • Pepsi Ad Pranks London Commuters With Crazy VFX [Video]

    Pepsi Max UK has released the latest ad in their “Unbelievable” campaign and it is, well, unbelievable. A London bus stop gives waiting commuters a look into an alternate reality where monsters and UFO are commonplace. Cameras outside the bus shelter capture passers-by and places them into all sorts of sci-fi scenes with real-time visual effects. Seeing this before your morning commute may even do a better job at waking you up than drinking the highly caffeinated soft drink.

  • Creative Illustrations of James Harden’s Beard

      In an experiment to sharpen creativity, artist Filip Peraić created ‘James Harden Illustrated’ a series of creative renditions focusing on James Harden’s iconic beard and side profile. The series was made to enlighten and enhance the creative process invoking viewers to see a simple profile of an iconic athlete in a completely new light. Peraić also has some fun with the series illustration Harden as a Greek philosopher in one piece and replaces his beard with a whale in another.

  • This Crazy Kate Upton and RSVLTS Moment Happened On Friday…

    A few weeks back, at the height Kate Upton’s zero gravity viral-ness, we put our stellar photoshop skills to work in hopes of piggybacking on the phenomenon. The idea was simple, use photos from our own zero gravity shoot with our friends from the Elvis Duran Morning Show and superimpose Anthony, Carla and Josh photobombing Kate Upton.

  • What Would Perfectly Symmetrical Faces Look Like? [10 Photos]

    New York City-based photographer Alex John Beck examines the idea that symmetrical faces are most beautiful in his series “Both Sides Of.” Using 10 models, Beck shows what their faces would look like if symmetrical from both original halves. The results are fairly attractive on some and downright hilariously ridiculous on others. It’s also interesting to note how vastly different the face shapes change based on the symmetry. For more great work from Alex John Beck, be sure to check out his portfolio.   

  • The Global Guide To Hand Gestures [Infographic]

    Plan on an international vacation any time soon? You might be wise to look at this infographic and learn what common hand gestures mean around the world. You wouldn’t want to find yourself in a pickle after a giving a thumbs up to some Latin American gentlemen. And the downward hand wave meaning “go away” in some countries and “come here” in others? That’s more confusing than flammable and inflammable! Source: Cheap Flights

  • How To Sneeze Properly [Link]

    Spring is officially here, although you wouldn’t know it with the cold temps many of us are still dealing with. Eventually, though, it will warm up and flora will bloom and everything will look nice and those of us with allergies will be sneezing incessantly. But what is the best method of sneezing? Dr. Julian W. Tang of the Alberta Provincial Laboratory for Public Health has researched the subject extensively and he has these tips to offer sneeze sufferers.

  • Tom Hanks’ Best Role Yet: Rap Superstar [Video]

    Rap geniuses Buckwheat Groats have teamed up with everyone’s favorite actor, Tom Hanks, for their newest video. Sort of. Well, they rap about Tom Hanks and they superimposed his face, so it’s almost looks like he’s making it rain in the club and drinking Hennessy. What about the lyrics? Well, any song that shouts out “Sleepless in Seattle” director Nora Ephron gets props from us. It’s just too bad that Tom’s own rapper son Chet Haze didn’t come up with the idea first. Maybe Chet can start a feud with Buckwheat Groats.

  • Slurpee Gluttons Take Advantage Of Bring Your Own Cup Day At 7-Eleven [20 Photos]

    Yesterday 7-Eleven Canada marked the first day of spring by allowing diabetes-seekers to bring their own container and fill it up with Slurpee for $1.49. There were official rules, which we posted below, but there were plenty of gluttons who payed no mind and filled containers with ungodly amounts of the frozen nectar of the gods. It’s not the first time they’ve held the promotion, either, so it must not hurt business. But why would someone get so much? You can’t possibly drink it all in one sitting before it melts and you can’t refreeze it. Oh yeah, because humans are greedy, even when it comes to novelty frozen drinks. Who am I kidding? I’m just jealous I didn’t get to take part.

  • Bryan Cranston Was A Teen Heartthrob In 1985

    Before he was Heisenberg, Malcolm’s Dad, or Jerry Seinfeld’s dentist, Bryan Cranston starred in the ABC soap “Loving,” and if this 1985 issue of Teen Talk is to be believed, he was every teen girl’s dream. This photo spread features everyone’s favorite crystal meth cook in too-short shorts showing his playful side in New York City’s Central Park. Who knew he was a “jock of all trades?” Is this magazine still being published? They should do an updated spread with Bryan in the same outfit plus Heisenberg hat. What girl could resist?

  • 12 Terrifying Unused Gravity Poster Ideas

    British visual effects house Framestore not only worked on the vfx for “Gravity,” they also designed the poster. However, the poster that we all recognize was not the only one made up. Recently on the Framestore blog, they offered a peak at a dozen other “Gravity” posters that were not used,  probably for the better. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, which was plenty terrifying on its own, some of these posters are enough to make your heart race.

  • The Awesome Vehicles of James Bond [13 Photos]

    Beginning today, the London Film Museum will be exhibiting “Bond in Motion,” the largest official collection of James Bond vehicles. And it’s not just the classic cars from the films, all sorts of wacky flying vehicles and submarines are on display, too. For info on tickets, check out the London Film Museum. The exhibit will be running all year long, but if you’re not going to make it, here are some pictures to show you just what you’re missing out on. Is it weird that the Mercury Cougar is probably my favorite of these?

  • Drummer Plays Every Green Day Song In 5 Minutes [Video]

    Drummer Kye Smith wanted to pay homage to Green Day for getting him into music and drumming when he was young, so he created a medley of all of their songs. Then he played along on the drums. That’s over 90 songs in 5 minutes. If nothing else, this video will remind you how great the first 4 Green Day albums were. Time to fire up Spotify…

  • 2 Refreshing Drinks You Need To Order This Spring (RSVLTS Drink Infographic)

    Spring reminds us of the beginning of baseball, the end of winter hibernation, people actually smiling, women walking around Manhattan without bras on, but most importantly; Day Drinking. Next time you’re at an out door happy hour spot, drinking on a weekend day, or hell, at your job, concoct one of these guys. It’s a drink you’ve heard of, but probably haven’t the slightest idea whats in it. The Tom Collins isn’t just for the country club anymore. Also try his hybrid freak of deliciousness “The Arnold Collins.”

  • Leanna Decker’s NBA Madness Is Better In GIF Form [31 GIFS]

    For the second issue of RSVLTS Magazine we brought the lovely and wildly popular Leanna Decker to RSVLTS temporary headquarters in New York City for an NBA themed photoshoot. While the shoot was going on we were also rolling video in anticipation of this day where we could release it to the world in beautiful GIF form. Back in December 2013 we proved that Lenna Decker is Better In GIF Form (see the previous 39 GIFS here) and today we have done our damnedest to reinforce this notion once again.

  • These 20 Stereotype Maps Are Funny And Sad At The Same Time

    At first these maps may appear to be lighthearted jabs at stereotypes, but, especially in the increasingly hostile environment worldwide, it’s actually a sobering look at many geopolitical issues facing the world. These maps could actually be fairly effective teaching aids in social studies classes. This is just a small sample of them, too. For all the maps and to order prints, check out Mapping Stereotypes.

  • How to Fund Your Band’s Tour On Spotify (Without Really Trying) [Link]

    Certain big-name musicians like Thom Yorke and David Byrne have openly criticized Spotify for being detrimental to small bands with its minuscule payouts. Plus, they said, there was no way for small bands to get promoted. Well it turns out those guys are just old and out of touch. Michigan-based funk band Vulfpeck has already made $5000 off the streaming service with their new album that’s 12 tracks of complete silence. And best of all, Spotify is applauding them for their ingenuity and rewarding them with more press than they could ever hope for. Find out what they did and maybe come up with an idea of your own. What’s wrong, David Byrne, you jelly?

  • How to Make Your Own Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glass

    Of course we’d all like to try cronut creator Dominique Ansel’s chocolate chip cookie shot glass, but not everyone lives in New York. And not everyone in New York wants to leave their apartment. But just because you’re depressed knowing that the cookie shot glasses are all the way in New York while you’re wherever you are, doesn’t mean you should stick your head in the oven just yet. Plus, your oven is electric not gas, and that’s no way to go. Professional actress and amateur baker Karin Lee has come up with a recipe that even a poor, pathetic soul who would kill themselves over not getting a fancy cookie could follow. So what are you waiting for? Head over to Instructables and get baking. Pour a little vodka and Kahlua in mine, please. Source: Instructables  

  • Breakdancer at Famous Paris Landmarks [20 Photos]

    Breakdancer Kapstand travels to famous Paris landmarks, photographing himself performing one-arm handstands. His form is so incredible, that if he wasn’t wearing different clothes in the pictures, you’d think it was the same pic Photoshopped into each locale. You can keep up with Kapstand’s upside-down journeys at his Facebook page. It’s all pretty impressive, I guess. I have a picture where I’m doing a somersault in front of Storybook Land in Atlantic City. Kapstand, consider yourself served. 

  • These Soviet Bus Stops Almost Make You Wish You Took The Bus. Almost. [25 HQ Photos]

    New York-based photographer Chris Herwig first took notice of these Soviet-era bus stops on a cycling trip in 2002. He challenged himself to take one good photo every hour and the bus stops were often the only break in monotony for long stretches in countries like Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Russia. Over the next 12 years, Herwig found himself traveling amongst the former Soviet Republics in order to capture as many bus stops as he could find. He often found himself being questioned and accused of being a spy in many of the nations where freedom of expression is still a foreign notion. With his travels complete, Herwig compiled his photos into a 128-page book that he started a Kickstarter campaign for to cover print costs. The campaign isn’t even over yet and he has already sold all of the pre-orders. Maybe it’s time we catch up to the Soviets and make some awesome bus stops in America. In New York all you get is a bench with a half-eaten gyro leaking tzatziki sauce all over the place and a questionable puddle emitting stink from below. 

  • Andrew W.K. Was Once A Male Model [8 Photos]

    Andrew W.K. is probably the nicest and happiest rock musician the world has ever known. He even has an upbeat advice column in the Village Voice. But before his numerous hits expounding the virtues of partying hard, Andrew tried his hand at modeling. These brooding, serious pictures are a far cry from the fun-loving, greasy-haired, entertainer in filthy jeans and white t-shirt we’ve all come to love. Thank God his modeling career never took off, because I would not want to live in a world without “Party Til You Puke.” And I’m not being sarcastic, that song rocks.

  • Teen Climbs 1 World Trade Center [Link]

    A 16-year-old from Weehawken, New Jersey has been arrested after climbing to the top of 1 World Trade Center. Around 4 am on Sunday night, Justin Casquejo snuck past a sleeping guard, who has since been fired, and reached the roof of America’s tallest building. The no fun police at the Port Authority are charging Casquejo with misdemeanor trespassing, but it’s more than worth it since he’s now the coolest kid in his high school.

  • Thieves Spend Months Tunneling To Rob Cash Machine

    It’s like something out of a silly heist film. Apparently, Manchester, England has a problem with a group of tunneling thieves dubbed the “Mole in the Wall” gang. Their most recent exploit involved a 50 foot complex tunnel allowing them to enter a Tesco after-hours and rob the cash machine of about $140,000. The gang first attempted to rob a Blockbuster in 2007 but their 40 foot tunnel was discovered just 15 feet shy of the target. Then in January 2012, the gang successfully robbed the very same Blockbuster with a 100 foot tunnel that took 6 months of digging. Nobody was ever caught in connection with the Blockbuster robberies but police are hoping someone will come forward after this most recent crime. Det. Supt. Toker offered this tip to jog the memories of locals: “You may have seen people acting suspiciously, possible covered in soil.” Yeah, good luck with that.

  • CNN’s Don Lemon Proves Why We Need Science Education [Video]

    You can’t blame CNN’s Don Lemon for wanting to get to the bottom of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 and with the cable network’s 24/7 coverage of an event we still know very little about, it’s bound to be difficult to find something to talk about. But black holes? Really? At least Lemon prefaces his question of black holes being responsible with “I know it’s preposterous, but…” Then he asks an expert, former Inspector General for the Department of Transportation Mary Schiavo, her thoughts. Wait, why would she know about black holes? “A small black hole would suck in our entire universe so we know it’s not that.” Hmph. Well that’s not true, but at least she wasn’t the one who posed the question. The whole exchange just comes off like a Perd Hapley segment on “Parks and Recreation.”

  • 24 Hilarious Greentext Tales Of IT

    In case you’re not familiar with 4chan (must be nice), greentext stories are short stories told in fragments of green text. They are a common way to share all sorts of narratives, from the sublimely funny to the ridiculously disgusting. However, 4chan can be a scary place, so it’s best to get these anecdotes filtered through other sites. These greentext tales of an IT worker who knows nothing about IT found their way onto Imgur last night and have been thoroughly read to ensure none of the extreme 4chan nonsense tagged along for the journey. And if there’s one thing to take away from these stories, it’s this: When in doubt, download Adobe Reader.

  • Insider’s Look at Google’s Quirky Amsterdam Headquarters [8 Photos]

    D/DOCK recently refurbished Google Amsterdam’s 3,000 square meter office and the results are incredible. Since Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin started the company in a garage, the designers felt it would be fitting to give the entire space a garage aesthetic. Of course, there are also nods to the Dutch throughout the office, including a cargo bicycle reception desk and ceiling tiles resembling syrup waffles. To ensure everyone in the office is in their best shape, there is a gym and meditation. Or you can just use the desk bike at your workstation. For more info on the project, check out D/DOCK.
