The Lost Summer’s Eve “Hail To The V” Asian Vagina Reel

August 2nd, 2011 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

You know those Summer’s Eve commercials that created quite a stir recently? The ones that seemed to imply all women’s vadges are dirty but most especially those of women of color?

Here’s the “black version”:

And the “Latina version”:

But there was no Asian version. Which left me with all sorts of confused feelings. Like, Hey, are our vadges not dirty, too? Wait, I didn’t just say that. But it feels bad to be left out! No, no, it doesn’t. What I mean is…I just really really want to see what a stereotypical Asian vadge sounds like? Okay?

And then, I got my wish*:

*Translasian!* Justin Timberlake And Peyton Manning’s Sony Commercial

September 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Peeps have gotten pretty riled up after watching Sony’s new commercial, which features Justin Timbersnake and Peyton “If there’s a commercial nearby, I’ll be in it” Manning speaking “Mandarin” over a competitive ping pong match.

But after watching the spot, we realized that all the wacky flurryfaloo is actually the result of those darn subtitles being written up incorrectly! Yup, it may have seemed like the guys were ching-chonging us with Mandaran-ish gibberish, but that’s just not so! Nuh uh!

How do we know? We asked a linguistics expert, a guy we found on the street like to call Mandarin Mike.

Expert Mandarin Mike says hello!

Expert Mandarin Mike explained to us that although the Colts QB and “Dick In A Box” singer struggle with their accents, what they’re really trying to say is:

“I’m the only NFL player that has never gotten a free BJ.”

and

“Britney gave me herpes.”

Now that we think about it, this commercial is freaking hilarious.

I Would Love to Chop Off These Balls

Christopher Walken the Fuck Were You Thinking?

Don’t get me started on the ping pong movie, Balls of Fury, that opens this weekend. Honestly, I’m afraid that if I get into it, I will filibuster for days until people come to haul me off and have me committed. So I’ll just let the pictures from its premiere do the talking. Check out George Lopez, a star in the movie, with his wife and daughter on the red carpet:

Is there an upshot to this ABORTION of a movie?

Maggie Q looks Asian again. She also looks like she’s dying, but, eh, you can’t win ‘em all.
