01. Design History Of The Budweiser Can

“In its role as the great American beer–or self-described ‘King Of Beers’–Budweiser has come a long way from being a steel-canned, eagle claw-adorned beverage for Americans in the mid-1930′s. It has become an iconic, global brand that continues to grow. This week, Anheuser Busch-partnered with London-based agency JKR to redesign the Bud can in order to embrace its growing global success and resonate with consumers around the world.” (psfk)

02. Metropolis II by Chris Burden (the movie) (above)

This is amazing. “A short doc about a kinetic sculpture that took four years to build. We had the honor of spending three days in Chris Burden’s studio filming this sculpture before it was moved to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) where it is being reinstalled.
The installation opens fall 2011.” (youtube)

03. Sex Doll Swimming Race

“A sex doll as a means of transportation!’ That was a slogan of the annual race on inflatable sex dolls that took place next to Saint-Petersburg on August 6. Over 800 people were willing to see how the dolls can swim.” (englishrussia)
