7 Mistakes You’re Making with Olive Oil

Shampooing your dog with it.


Pouring it on Lord Denethor and lighting him on fire.


Trying to use it as currency.


Carrying it in a gallon freezer bag and telling people it’s your nephew Walt.


Freezing it in the shape of olives.


Dressing like Popeye and trying to have sex with it.


Using it as a metaphor to describe Johnny Fontaine’s hair to Tom Hagen.

So apparently, this is a thing: Greenscreen-clad workers who secretly flip models’ hair during shampoo commercials. (via @makingofs on twitter)

if they would leave the mummy in the commercial I would be 200% more likely to purchase the product

Going Deep With David Rees | National Geographic Channel -

howtosharpenpencils:

This is the TV show I keep talking about! It’s gonna be fun and I hope you’ll watch it when it premieres ONE WEEK FROM TONIGHT. Basically, it’s a how-to show that investigates all the simple, mundane things we do without thinking.

I wanted to make a TV show in the same spirit as my book HOW TO SHARPEN PENCILS, which — yeah it has some crazy stuff in it but — is fundamentally a sincere celebration of how interesting pencils and pencil sharpeners are. And a celebration of doing simple things well, and having fun too! Basically GOING DEEP WITH DAVID REES Is just a big-ass fun celebration (and re-contextualization) of basic skills like TYING YOUR SHOES or OPENING A DOOR or SHAKING HANDS (actual episodes).

I will write more about this show soon, I promise! I can’t wait for you to see it!
