Well world traveled faster than Casey in the video, and now after a few independently successful videos like NYC Bike Lanes and Snowboading in the NYC streets Casey is back with a branded video, partnering up with J. Crew promoting their Ludlow suit. Neistat has managed to find a business model that works for him and is tolerable for the viewer, because he takes them on a journey filled with global travel, clever cuts and camera angles, synced to fun and energetic music and keeps it raw. No doubt Neistat ultimately strives to be the king of cool, showing off his skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing talents all in one video (Oh and he rides a motorcycle, too), but also shows hints of an awkward side, getting stuck between the doors of an elevator and tinkering with the engine of a motorcycle. Neistat has a more »

    Track the evolution of some of the most recognizable brand logos of the last century with this infographic. Sure the simple, dignified minimalism ever-present with today’s logos is better than some of the busy of the 40s, but the Microsoft should have stuck with their 1981 logo. The font looks like something off an old videogame, maybe “Micrsoft: Clippy’s Voyage” for the Atari 2600. The rundown of the worst logos at the bottom is pretty entertaining, too.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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?

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.

  • 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?
