Would You Have Said Yes? ‘Picking Up Girls in a Fat Suit’ Social Experiment

Do looks still matter as much as they used to, or have people changed? For years, we’ve heard about how so many people have come to the realization that true love prevails, regardless of someone’s wealth, status, or appearance. Putting this to the test is Jason from Simple Pickup, who donned a fat suit and confidently set out to ask random girls for their digits.

Did his confidence and personality win them over, or did his looks turn them off before he even opened his mouth?

The social experiment is interesting and its results undoubtedly say a lot about people’s perceptions nowadays. If you think about it, the results aren’t all that surprising. You can check the clip out above to see for yourself.

High Five Fiesta Adds a Little Something Extra to Your High Fives

High Five Fiesta

Add a little something extra to otherwise boring high fives with High Five Fiesta. It’s a small, handheld gizmo that shoots confetti into the air once its wearer gives (or receives) a high five. It features a reusable confetti cartridge which can easily be loaded with confetti when it’s all high-fived out.

Some people might hesitate when they see the humongous green button on your palm when you raise your hand for a high five, but they’ll soon realize it’s pretty harmless and loads of fun when they do decide to meet your hand with theirs. High Five Fiesta isn’t available for purchase yet, although its creators will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on Dragon Innovation soon to fund its manufacture.

You can check out their website for updates: Fiesta Five.

Need a Roommate? Create a Poster and See Your Ad Go Viral

Roomate Mock Poster

Awesome roommates are hard to come by. Lauren Fahey recently moved to San Francisco and came upon that realization after apartment hunting for a while. With a lot of other “competitors” on the side, Lauren decided that the only way she was ever going to find a decent place to live in was to sell herself–as being one of the best roommates you could ever have.

Lauren then created a movie poster-like ad which featured testimonials about Lauren as a roommate from previous roommates. The ad’s backdrop featured Lauren with a friend (who could be you, if you’re looking for a roommate!) and an ironic naked man at the back, for no particular reason. She explains: “Apartment and roommate hunting was getting so tedious. It’s ridiculously competitive and I had to find a way to set myself apart.”

Lauren’s methods worked, since she now has herself a roommate. If you’re looking for one yourself, then take a cue from Lauren and see if it works for you, too.

Grumpy Cat Snow Globe: Tardar Sauce is Not Impressed

Grumpy Cat Snowglobe

You’ve seen her pictures. You’ve laughed at her memes. Now own something inspired by none other than Tardar Sauce herself. She has achieved global fame on the Internet, where she’s known as Grumpy Cat. You know how some people’s resting faces look like they’ve swallowed something bitter? Well, that’s kind of what Tardar Sauce looks like at any given time, only the expression she sports is of the grumpy, unimpressed kind.

Even though the season of Christmas still won’t bring a smile to that face, something inspired by it will bring joy and a few laughs to most people who encounter it: the Grumpy Cat snowglobe. Shake it, flip it over, tilt it to one side, and you’ll be treated to a rain of glitter and confetti swirling about a bored-looking bust of Grumpy Cat.

Christmas doesn’t get any better than this, even though the snowglobe says otherwise. The Grumpy Cat snowglobe is available online for $16.

Check Out the Happiest Costume on Earth!

Happiest Costume Ever

Disneyland might be the happiest place on earth, but this here is the happiest costume in the world. As you might’ve probably already guessed by now, the costume draws inspiration from the theme park itself. The costume is a handful but it was a challenge that Rob Cockerham of Cockeyed gleefully took on.

The costume is essentially a wearable miniature replica of the world-famous theme park. Spot Space Mountain, the Jungle Cruise, Fantasyland theater, Autopia, the Astro Orbiter, and the Innoventions building on the massive costume, among a host of other attractions. While Rob can definitely walk around while wearing it, I doubt he’ll be able to take a drink from the water fountain or fit through most doorways.

Tricks Done Right: Flying R/C Quadcopter Ghost with Glowing Eyes

October is the month when pranksters let loose, where almost everyone becomes a victim of their sometimes funny and often scary pranks and practical jokes. Taking things one step further is Alton Porter. He built a flying remote-controlled ghost that has glowing eyes that definitely adds to the scare factor.

Alton’s probably having a few laughs right now as he flies his R/C ghost around for a test run before unleashing it onto unsuspecting trick-or-treaters come October 31st. If you know him personally or live in the same neighborhood, you might want to avoid his house if you don’t want the living daylights scared out of you or your kid…or not, because in hindsight, that’s what makes Halloween fun in the first place.

Hilarious: Improv Everywhere Recreates ‘You Shall Not Pass!’ Scene from LOTR

Remember that epic moment from the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie where Gandalf stands in front of the Balrog and delivers the forceful line that was eventually turned into a meme: “You shall not pass!” It was powerful moment and it changed the course of the events to come.

This being one of the most easily recognizable scenes from the series, Improv Everywhere set out to make people experience it in real life by recreating it in one episdode of their “Movies in Real Life” series. The result is pretty hilarious.

Rickroll’d in Klingon: Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ in Klingon

You’ll never forget the first time you were Rickroll’d. I certainly didn’t. What happened was: a friend called me one day and asked if I had heard about the iPhone 4S. I said no, and he told me to check out his Facebook profile because he had linked to an article about it. So I stupidly clicked on the shortened URL and was treated to Rick Astley in all his retro Never Gonna Give You Up goodness.

Rickrolling is still very much alive and kicking, and now an alternate Klingon version of his hit song has hit the web. It’s a Star Trek-inspired parody directed by Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, who also happens to provide the vocals for the video. Now it won’t win any music awards, but it’s a pretty decent–not to mention hilarious–effort.

So what are you waiting for? Get Rickrolling now, Klingon-style.

Go On, Be Annoying: Infinite Text-in-Progress Prank for iOS 7

Text in Progress Icon Prank

You know how you’re texting with someone, and it’s just taking forever for them to respond? It especially sucks when you’ve just asked a question you’re dying to know the answer to. It almost seems like those little dots on the text-in-progress icon are mocking you… Well, I hate to break it to you, but if you’ve been staring at that message thread for an hour and the icon indicated that the person on the other end is still typing, then I think you’ve just been pranked.

How? With this clever animated GIF that pranksters Miscellaneous Mischief have made available here: Infinite Text-In-Progress. The site hosts the GIF that looks like the legit one for the iPhone, and all people have to do is download that and send it to their victim of choice.

Now that you know, the only thing left to do is return the favor (but those people will probably catch on pretty fast, since they already know about it) and pass it on (but have some pity and compassion, and don’t do it to the elderly.)
