Panda Dogs a Hit in China

Check out these adorable Chow dogs dressed as pandas. Apparently these pets are the new craze in China. Buyers even bring them back every 6 weeks to keep up on the panda-style coloring and grooming.

It does seem like a hassle, but they sure are cute. Thankfully, the dye used is not harmful to the animals.

‘Ten years ago the natural instinct of a Chinese person was to eat a dog,’ he said. ‘Now we are like westerners and want one as a companion.’ Hsin admitted he used a bit of trickery to make the chow dogs appear like pandas. He added: ‘With a bit of careful grooming and colouring it is easy to turn a chow into a panda dog in about two hours. ‘Then the look will stay with the dog for around six weeks and the owners bring them back for some touching up.’

Street Performer in a Transformers Costume

Spotted on the streets of Ann Arbor, MI, this robot really transforms! And the car actually drives around. So amazing. The kids are just loving it.

I wonder if this is just a cosplaying street artist… or is this strategic marketing for the upcoming movie on June 27th?

Internet has Fun with Affleck’s Batman Photo

People seem to be having lots of fun with the recently released photo of Ben Affleck as Batman. Lots of creativy in these images below.

Some people have colored the costume to match some crazy costumes that Batman has worn in the past. Pink Batman? Rainbow Batman? Sure, I’m game.

These Sad Batman memes are great, too. He does look really sad, poor guy. I bet he’s thinking about Robin.

CW’s promotion of their new Flash TV show is running full speed ahead. Below are two videos that give us a nice look at Arrow spinoff.

CW first released this teaser, then they quickly followed up with an extended trailer. It’s heavy with crossover support from Oliver Queen himself, and I’m pleasantly surprised how good this looks. I will certainly be watching this fall!

Scary Gorilla Prank at Casting Call

Here’s a silly prank video involving a scary gorilla costume. Unsuspecting actors auditioning on stage get rushed by a crazy gorilla.

What’s really funny, though, is how they don’t even really get scared. The prank falls a bit flat, but hey, at least they tried.

We decided to partner with PitTV to host our casting call and test out the costume at the same time. We wound up learning that improv actors are not the easiest people to scare, but it can lead to some great laughs regardless!
