American Girl Announces The Release Of American Boy

(PCM) After many years of requests from parents the American Girl doll company has revealed that they are gearing up to release their first-ever American Boy doll. Director of public relations for the American Girl Doll company, Julie Parks, commented to the Huffington Post saying, “Adding a boy to our lineup has been a number one request for a very, very, very long time.”

The company is planning to release a much larger set of new dolls this year, as both parents and children are consistently requesting dolls that feature more diversity, experiences and interests. The very first American Boy doll will be named Logan Everett and his story is that he is a boy who plays drums alongside his friend Tenney Grant, a singer-songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee.

We never realized that these American Girl, and now American Boy dolls had such detailed backstories, but it is definitely great to see that the company is finally branching out.

New Tostitos Bag Knows When Your Drunk And Will Call You An Uber

(PCM) Technology has grown in leaps and bounds over the years and continues grow even more each and every day. That is why it is not too very surprising that the Frito-Lay’s company has created a bag of Tostitos that cares about your personal safety and can literally let you know when you are too drunk to drive and call you an Uber to arrive home safely.

Frito-Lays has partnered up with both Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and created the “Party Safe” bag of Tostitos that has the ability to detect traces of alcohol on your breath. If the bag senses that there is too much alcohol on your breath it will flash red and display a don’t drink and drive message. If the bag does not detect alcohol on your breath it will flash green letting you know that you are sober enough to drive home.

But, wait, there’s more! If the bag flashes red with the don’t drink and drive message, you will receive a $10 Uber discount code. When you touch your smartphone to the bag it will then automatically call an Uber for you to pick you up from your location and get you home safe and sound.

The special Tostitos “Party Safe” bags are being offered for a limited time only and available in conjunction with Super Bowl Sunday in a effort to prevent drinking and driving during the Big Game. It has not yet been revealed where the bags will be available for purchase and if the company has any plans to make them a permanent fixture for their brand in the future.

Could This Be The World’s Worst Pregnancy Test Ad?

(PCM) There is appears to be one rather large issue with this particular Dutch pregnancy advertisement and the internet is losing its’ mind! Can you see what the issue is below?

This woman is obviously very much pregnant and generally, aren’t you supposed to take a pregnancy test before you would be showing that much? The look of shock on their faces is just too much! Folks on Twitter have been having too much fun with the add with some saying that the couple appear shocked because the test result says “negative” or that maybe she just swallowed an entire bowling ball!

The folks at Adweek, reached out to the designers of the now viral pregnancy test ad and they claim “Since Predictor is 99.9 percent accurate, you’d rather depend on the test than your belly” as their ridiculous meaning for the ad.  The original billboard ad was initially created back in 2011 and it’s designers can not believe that it has now gone viral a full six years later. That’s the way the internet works sometimes!

Oprah Is On Her Way To A Fridge Near You!

(PCM) The Kraft Heinz food company has some exciting news with the announcement of their upcoming partnership with celebrity Oprah Winfrey. The joint venture will be called “Mealtime Stories” and together Kraft Heinz and Oprah will be creating a new line of packaged, refrigerated meals. Kraft Heinz says the mission is to create a new line of food that will make real, nutritious products more accessible to everyone.

Partnering with Kraft Heinz is not the first time that Oprah has done work in the food industry.

Raw Cookie Dough Restaurant Opens In NYC

(PCM) Throw those food safety myths about the dangers of consuming raw cookie dough out the window, as what is probably the world’s first raw cookie dough restaurant has opened it’s doors in New York City. If you recall, the FDA issued a warning in 2016 about the dangers of consuming raw cookie dough and it wasn’t just the danger of salmonella that could potentially be found in eggs. The FDA warned that there was an e.Coli outbreak in flour and consuming any uncooked flour was a danger to your health and could even possibly kill you!

Well, worry no more! A new eatery called has opened in Greenwich Village, NYC and it is being touted as a “cookie dough scoop shop”! Just the same as an ice cream shop, you can choose the flavors of cookie dough which range from classic chocolate chip to oatmeal m&m or if you are feeling especially adventurous you can combine flavors to create yummy combinations such as Fluffernutter, Confetti or Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle. Sounds heavenly to us!

The cookie dough scoops are served in a bowl or a cone and the store also offers other specialty items such as a cookie dough ice cream pie and the deliciously looking “cookie bomb” which features layers of buttercream icing on top of a cookie dough scoop of your choice.

For those that are worried about the safety of consuming raw cookie dough, DŌ uses pasteurized egg product and heat-treated flour to ensure proper food safety precautions. We are without a doubt paying this place a visit sometime in the very near future!  Yum!

Foot File Is Given A Truly Inappropriate Name!

(PCM) Someone in the marketing department is getting fired! A foot file created by Gena Lab, Inc, which is based out of Dallas, Texas, has given their product one of the most inappropriate names imaginable. Ready for this? Their foot file is called Pedi File. So much no right there!

We can’t believe someone didn’t catch that before these foot files were put out for sale. Some thought that the Pedi File name could have been a language barrier mix-up from an overseas company, however it is clearly stamped on the product that it was created in Dallas, Texas. An image of the product was posted on Reddit and has since received over 3,500 up votes.

This product got us thinking about some other inappropriately named products that have been released over the years. There has been everything from Vergina beer to the Ayds diet candy from the early nineties. Oddee.com has put together a hilarious list at some of the world’s most inappropriately named products and the reasons they are most likely no longer found on store shelves.

Let’s hope that Gena Lab, Inc will give some much deeper thought to their product naming the next time around or else face the consequences of becoming roasted on the internet yet again!
