Greedy Dad Wants Free Stuff From MLB Teams Just Because He Has A Baby

There are many dads in America, and every day there are more. Many of these dads feel reasonably entitled to certain things—the right to put on their slippers and read the paper after work with their loyal hounds at their sides, for instance, or to just have a few minutes of peace and quiet, for Christ's sake. One… » 2/19/15 11:47am 2/19/15 11:47am

Watch The Deadspin Super Bowl Ad That Was Too Hot For TV!  (NSFW!) 

You know the drill by now: Some dipshit company like GoDaddy or Carl's Jr. makes a lascivious Super Bowl ad, only to be bombarded with a host of last-second edits from the prudes in your average network's S&P department. And then they go ahead and post the uncut ad—highly NSFW (OOH!), like the one above—on their… » 1/29/15 3:17pm 1/29/15 3:17pm

Three More Sponsors Decide To Stop Supporting Slavery, Drop FIFA 

Good news everybody! Three of FIFA's biggest sponsors—Johnson & Johnson, Castrol, and Continental Tires—confirmed to The Telegraph that they have cut their ties with FIFA, joining Sony and Emirates in declining to continue supporting slavery.

You Do Not Fuck Around With FIFA's Logos

This will probably not come as a shock, but FIFA really, really cares about its brand. Sure, it's fine allying with slavers and shrugging at the deadly work conditions for "employees" in its host nations, and, when evidence of corruption in the World Cup bidding process is found, is more concerned with keeping the… » 12/15/14 1:59pm 12/15/14 1:59pm

Darren Rovell Bravely Defends The Brands From Richard Sherman

Yesterday, Seattle Seahawks corner/provocateur Richard Sherman used a mandated media availability (and a life-sized cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin) to mock the NFL for fining Marshawn Lynch $100,000 for refusing to talk to reporters two weeks ago, for blatant hypocrisy, and for expecting its athletes to behave like… » 11/26/14 12:36pm 11/26/14 12:36pm

Damn, Millennials, Pizza Hut Thinks You're Super Boring

Much of the content of this Washington Post report on the diverging fortunes of delivery pizza giants Domino's and Pizza Hut—the former is thriving, the latter not s'much—passes harmlessly overhead, as remote and incomprehensible as solar wind washing harmlessly over the Earth's magnetic field. Domino's has a… » 10/16/14 1:43pm 10/16/14 1:43pm

Another Brand™ Is Mildly Angry At The NFL

The NFL has a domestic violence problem, and the Brands™ are concerned. Maybe not as concerned as the dumb apologizing pizza, but they want you, Brand™ consumer, to know that they care. The latest Brand™ and NFL sponsor to join the parade of concern is Pepsi, whose CEO Indra Nooyi released a statement tonight. The » 9/17/14 10:09pm 9/17/14 10:09pm

Is Glenn Greenwald Still "Red-Hot"? The Politico Investigates

Politico Magazine is a magazine edition of The Politico—America's worst publication—whose mission is "to pull back from the flood to understand what it's all about." The flood, in that metaphor, is supposed to be the tremendous churning hourly volume of vacuous meta- and meta-meta-political Narrative and Controversy… » 9/05/14 7:48am 9/05/14 7:48am

There Are No Giraffes In Ghana, Delta

The Delta brand tweeted this image out after USMNT won a crazy game against Ghana, which you may know is located in Africa, the second-largest continent in the world. It's a big place with elephants, zebras, Oscar Pistorius, and 53 other countries. And, yes, Africa has giraffes. You just won't find them in Ghana. » 6/16/14 10:07pm 6/16/14 10:07pm
