Domino’s Pizza Is Training Reindeer To Deliver Pizza In Japan

reindeer1

(PCM) We can think of about a million and one reasons why this is not such a good idea, however Domino’s Pizza still plans to move forward with their “brilliant” idea to train reindeer to deliver pizza’s this holiday season in Japan. The franchise branch that came up with the idea is even figuring on a way incorporate GPS technology to equip the reindeer and the pizza will be delivered via sleigh. Tis’ the season of ridiculousness! 

The fine folks at the Domino’s franchise in Japan that hatched this plan have released a video showcasing their effort in training the pizza delivering reindeer. Let’s just say, it doesn’t go exactly according to plan (gee..didn’t see that one coming!).

Domino’s plan was to equip the reindeer with GPS trackers so that the customer who ordered the pizza would be able to track their whereabouts and delivery time. They unfortunately did not plan for such instances as the pizza falling off the back of the reindeer or the reindeer veering the sleigh off course. Not sure what they were really expecting with an untrained wild animal, but hey, we give them points for the attempt and creativity. 

A press release for the company states that it is “too difficult to control the reindeer” but they are still trying to work out the situation and urge their customers to stay tuned for additional information.

Cards Against Humanity Raises $90K To Dig A Hole For No Reason

holiday-hole

(PCM) This is not surprising news coming from the folks behind the crude party card game “Cards Against Humanity”, as they have always been known to push the limits.

The company has currently raised more than $90,000 to literally dig a hole in the ground that leads to nowhere. They have named it the “Holiday Hole” and when visiting the company’s website you can view a live stream of the hole be dug in the ground for absolutely no reason.

The more money that is donate the further “Cards Against Humanity” will dig. Each $5.00 donate adds 2 more seconds of dig time to the “Holiday Hole”. The company has launched a website to promote the project and are taunting their supporters by labeling the amount of donations received as “Money Thrown In Hole”.  It is actually kind of mesmerizing to watch, as you know in the back of your mind that the hole is the result of people’s hard-earned dollars being literally thrown into the ground. 

Obviously the company statement about holiday consumerism is working and people are fascinated by the sheer and utter ridiculousness of the project. Top donors for the project have donated amounts of money over $1,000 and the donates are continuing to pour throughout the Thanksgiving weekend. Makes us curious as to just what they will think of next.

Real Life Phantom Of The Opera Shuts Down The Met

met-opera-house

(PCM) A performance of Rossini’s Guillaume Tell at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City was cut short after an audience member was seen sprinkling a mysterious powdered substance in the orchestra pit during intermission.

Officials at The Met called in counterterroism officials to investigate and run test on the substance which turned out to be none other than human ashes. Definitely creepy and certainly on The Met’s side to take necessary precautions.

Authorities questioned several of those in attendance for the performance who claimed that an unidentified man revealed to them that he had plans to sprinkle the ashes of his dead friend and opera aficionado at the historic opera house.

The man was seen on security camera footage reaching into his jacket and sprinkling the contents for a black bag in the orchestra pit during intermission when hardly any musicians were still present. The rest of the evenings performance was then cancelled when the counterterrorism officials were called in and another performance was also cancelled later that evening as an extra precaution.

The powder is still being tested however authorities are nearly positive that it is indeed human ashes. No word on whether or not charges will be filed against the man who attempted to create a literal phantom of the opera, but we are sure it’s a safe bet that he will be facing some type of criminal charges, but he is seriously one heck of a loyal friend.

A Visit To The Explorers Club! New York Comic Con Exclusive Event!

 

the-explorers-club-2

 

(PCM) Pop Culture Madness was lucky enough to be invited to a party at the Explorers Club. The party was hosted by Freeform the network formally known as ABC Family. The party was during NYCC 2016, and was a way to promote Beyond, a new show being released by Freeform early in 2017.

Beyond will be released on Freeform on January 2, 2017. The show will follow Holden a young boy who is now a young man after he wakes up after a 12-year coma, and discovers new abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy. Freeform were amazing hosts and we got to see first-hand what the show was all about. The show is definitely an homage to Sci-Fi movies from the 1980s. If you like early movies directed by Steven Spielberg, you will like this show.

After talking to the actors and producers of the show who were all very nice, we were gracefully given a tour of The Explorers Club. The Explorers Club was founded in New York City in 1904. The club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal and that is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. A colleague and I were given a tour of their headquarters which is located at 46 East 70th Street in New York City.

The building the Explorers Club resides in used to be the home of Stephen C. Clark. Mr. Clark was the grandson of Edward Clark a founding member of Singer Sewing Machine Company. The Explorers Club has 26 in the United States and around the world. Many chapters hold monthly dinners, lectures, and seminars, award field-research grants to students, publish newsletters, and organize expeditions, field trips, and educational events.

The tour we took was very informative and fun. I’m very thankful too Freeform for inviting us. For more information on the Explorers Club be sure to visit their website: https://explorers.org/.
