Any successful business person will tell you that the best way to gain marketshare is having a recognizable and marketable brand identity. The same, you can assume, applies to the heroin trade where it’s routine practice for dealers to stamp identifiable names on their packets of drugs – usually slang terms like “Helen” or “Hazel.” But one Philadelphia area drug dealer has caught everyone’s attention by moving the game up one more level by branding his heroin “LeBron James.” Continue reading

In Hollywood, the biggest movie stars generally shun “slumming” in lowly TV commercials, but that doesn’t stop them from flying over to Japan for a quick round of slumming in Japanese advertisements, where they think Americans will never see them.

Go to bed like never before! We have seen it in the movies: a couple on a road trip break down in a small, quirky town and get a hotel room for the night. Upon entering the room and flicking on the light, instead of a crazy man wielding a chainsaw, the room comes to life with disco music, a circular bed is slowly revolving, the walls are covered in bright pink and orange shag carpet with Zebra accents.

You may prefer to book that pricey room at a Waldorf Astoria, however, if you dare, go for a little tacky and off-the-wall sappy. Continue reading
