Power Shorts: Shake Your Bon Bons for Power

Power Shorts

Is your phone running low on power? That should be no problem if you’re wearing shorts with the Power Pocket, because all you’ll have to do to charge up your phone is shake your booty. Clearly it’s not the easiest or most practical way to charge your battery, but it’s probably one of the funnest, especially if you’re in the right place, with the right people.

The shorts were created by Vodafone with the help of researchers from the University of Southampton. They were unveiled to attendees of UK’s Isle of Wight music fest, who I’m sure had a blast trying it out.

Tactical Apron Should Satisfy The Warrior Griller

11cd_tactical_bbq_apron

With BBQ season in full swing, we’ve had no shortage of BBQ-related items to report on lately. Add the above Tactical Apron to that list. Looking a lot like a long bullet-proof vest, it’s covered in a real MOLLE System, as used in the Army. This allows for the attachment of various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories, which in this case is going to be spatulas, tongs, and knives. It comes with 2 large pouches and 3 smaller pouches in which you can store salt and pepper shakers, or your phone. Whatever you need to do your job on the grill, you can store it on the Tactical Apron. It’s a pretty badass purchase, and at all of $35, is worth every penny.

The HoodiePillow has been around for almost a year, but being the slowpokes that we sometimes are, we are reporting on it now. It’s a cool fusion of a hoodie, with, well, a pillow. You can use it to warm up your noggin while sleeping, reading or any other activity where you might use a pillow and risk getting cold. There’s even a pocket next to the hoodie where you can stuff your iPhone and holes through which you thread your earphones for easy listening.

It’s $20.

.45 Colt Nickel Bullet Cuff Links

Screen Shot 2013-04-25 at 11.09.25 PM

Some might say that to adorn yourself with gun related accessories these days could be in bad taste. But others would argue that it’s quite the opposite when you can look at a core aspect of American culture, neuter it in some way and wear it proudly; bullets that are keeping your shirt sleeves together aren’t hurting anyone, after all. And the .45 Colt Nickel Bullet Cuff Links certainly stand out next to your almost never ending supply of shiny, bling-y, somewhat gaudy cufflinks you see all over the place. Better yet, at $23, they’ll make you stand out in a subtle, understated way while hurting your wallet not at all.

Ever been jogging and wished you’d brought your jacket? But it didn’t seem that cold, right?

It weighs all of 70g, (2.5oz.) and has what the company calls “ClimaWind” technology, which means it’s made from a highly breathable material that won’t have you starting to sweat, making you want to take it off, only to get cold again because now you’re sweaty and it’s still cold out…

It’s $80.

Can’t Stop Eating? Well, At Least These Gluttony Pants Won’t Stop Fitting

Gluttony Pants

You know it’s time to stop asking for second (or third) helpings when your pants are fit to burst. Over the years, people found a way to circumvent this discomfort by wearing their ‘fat pants’ when they know they’re about to eat more than they should, like when they’re attending a party or going to an eat-all-you-can buffet.

You probably have a pair in your closet, whether it’s sweatpants or a pair of jeans that’s two sizes bigger than your usual. Fat pants may be more forgiving on your waist, but not so much on the other parts of your body, making you look frumpy and short and just generally unattractive.

Then along came the Gluttony Pants.

Viral Marketing Done Right: American Eagle Announces Paint-On Skinny Skinny Jeans

Spray-on-AEO-Skinny-Skinny-jeans

Yes, they’re trolling. But it’s a darn good one. The 30 second advertisement featured below is about a purported new range of skinny jeans from clothing retailer American Eagle. “It’s our skinniest fit yet and is so comfortable you’ll feel like you’re wearing nothing at all,” boats the narrator. And that’s when you realize that the pants are quite literally painted on. The campaign doesn’t end with a simple video however, as they provide you with a link to a special page on their website where you can contemplate buying a can of the spray-on fabric. There is even an option to add the $50 “Limited Edition” set to your shopping cart; pressing the button brings up an “out of stock” warning. Right.

Let’s be clear, this is absolutely a tongue-in-cheek hoax, as confirmed by the company’s vice-president last friday on the Today Show. But it does show the company hitting one out of the park in the field of viral marketing. The video has racked up over a million views in three days and got the Interwebs chatting.

Check out the video, below.
