Remember When Men Used to Buy Things?

Goodyear: For the man who once had control of (or influence on) his household's budget

Do you remember when marketers used to target men?

Here’s a commercial for Goodyear that plays to a husband’s fear of his incompetent wife driving. Thanks to the good folks at Reddit, and artfuldodger89‘s brilliantly titled post: “My tiny, inferior female mind cannot understand what this commercial is implying.”

Vloggerheads: Country Club or Safe Haven?

Jenna Wortham writes a balanced piece about the controversial Vloggerheads.com website, spawned by Renetto (a popular YouTube creator). My previous post on Vloggerheads generated more comments than any other post I’ve written. And, for that matter, brought controversy among a tight-knit group of regular WVFF commenters that usually play off each other like a well-oiled comedy troupe. Group hug?

I hope that whether you’re annoyed by Vloggerheads, or celebrate it as a new safe-haven for a tight virtual community… that you can still appreciate the irony of this random screen shot I took this morning. This just happened to be the most recent videos posted as of 7:30 am on Saturday.

What do almost all of these guys have in common!? I know where I’d advertise if I sold hair transplants.

Now guys don’t get upset. I’ve been known to do whatever it takes to be like Renetto myself. He has that quality. Hold on a second, I have to buy a candle online. Okay I’m back.

Patton Oswalt Likes Nuts (Rabbit Bites)

Patton Oswalt likes to look at nut sacks of old men. See for yourself on Rabbit Bites. Patton, of course, only did Rabbit Bites because I did a year ago (I’m a trend setter. I’ll bet Oswalt doesn’t do “Internet Superstar” until Aug 2009).
