There is a Museum of Failure and I really NEED to go there

bytesized mini logoAs a nation we are are realizing that our time of fake Fridays, not working for 5 days a week and long weekends are coming to an end. It’s back to sitting in traffic (don’t you love it when the schools are on holiday?) and dreaming of your next vacation. But  before that time comes, here is an update on all things web.

From a Museum of Failure (my kind of museum), to real life Minecraft animals (don’t worry, none were harmed), a new podcast and coffee product PLUS Heineken actually gets the whole what Pepsi tried to do ad right.

Guys there is a Museum of Failure and I want to go to there

The curator says that he wants to show how failure is also spectacular. I’m just happy to learn that Colgate brought out a beef lasagne. Also I wonder if they offer you Pepsi at the door….

I wonder if it had a bit of minty freshness instead of the white sauce?
museum of failiure harley leather perfume
Harley Davidson brought out a perfume that smells like leather. It reminds me of Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries… Yep, it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.

Drink all the coffee you want without being judged

Don’t you think you’ve had enough coffee? How many cups have you had? If this sounds like your office, then do I have a solution for you. Clear Coffee is coffee that looks like water. Pure genius.

And if its instagram account is anything to go by, this clear coffee is traveling the world, working out and living large. It will cost you about R103 for 2, but you have to import it from the UK. Good luck with the price of posting.

Minecraft in real life

Artist Aditya Arryanto has re imagined animals as they appear in Minecraft. I was kind of upset that there was no pig, but these are awesome. Some are cute and some are just creepy AF.

The response we’ve all been waiting for to THAT Pepsi ad

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then well done you are one of the few to have lived through a Kardashian/Jenner experience without knowing about it.

Kendall Jenner and Pepsi made this terrible ad (read the internet’s response here) and Heineken decided to improve on the concept.

The ONE podcast you MUST binge listen to this weekend

I’ve gone on about Serial before (only one friend has listened to me. This friend is known as my current BFF). This is brought to you by the same folks and all of the episodes are out at the same time. S-Town will keep you guessing until the very end
