Sorry Diddy, Your Tickets Are At Will Call

LAS VEGAS — So tickets were made available today for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao and according to reports, tickets sold out in minutes. One twitter user attempted to purchase tickets and was met with the following screen shot “Only credit cards holder to pick up with valid government issued ID and credit card used. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made. Will call will be made available.” So, it got me thinking, what if for some reason you’re John Legend and you forget to pick up your tickets ahead of time, do you have to stand in line like regular folk (and by regular I mean people who have north of $1500 to spend on a nosebleed or…

Why Celebrity Endorsement Is Here To Stay

  by  Gnaphron  There is no denying that ours is a culture where celebrity rules and filters into almost every aspect of our lives. What we wear, what we do with our spare time or how we choose to diet, is often influenced by what we see our favourite celebs doing. So, it is no surprise that celebs are often employed to advertise or promote different companies. For example, many of the online gaming operators have their chosen celebrity ambassadors. Ex-Spice Girl and X Factor judge Mel B is the new face of Costa Bingo while Shane Warne, the former cricket star, has been associated with 888poker for years.

Elderly Man Fends Off Assailants With Samarui Sword NSFW

Wrong. Grandpa was waiting for them as soon as they hit the door. He grabs his samurai sword and went Kill Bill on…


Plies Disses Fan, Fan Goes Ultimate Warrior

As a result the fan, fresh off of an apparent Wrestlemania tour, proceeded to suplex Mr. “Bust It Baby” into the crowd causing a melee to erupt. Wait, it gets better. Said fan then filmed a follow up video to explain his actions. I have both. Meek Mill you are safe for now.
