Riders Throw A Graduation Ceremony For A Graduate Who Stuck On A Delayed Subway

By Posted on 0 1 m read

New York subways always have something interesting going on. This past Tuesday (May 30) the subway action was a bit different when Jerich Marco Alcantara missed his commencement ceremony from Hunter College due to a delay on the E train. Alcantara was fully dressed and set to receive his degree from Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing.

“I was on track to be at my commencement at 9:15 a.m., but the delays altogether ended up taking almost three hours. After 45 minutes, I knew I was already late, but I kept hoping that I’d at least make it to walking the stage.”  -Jerich Alcantara

Sadly he didn’t make it but because of some friends and strangers who were on the train that day, he got to experience a graduation of a lifetime. A friend of Alcantara presented him with his “diploma” using a cellphone, while somebody else blasted the perfect graduation song, “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day.

A passenger filmed the ceremony and posted the video on Facebook, and now Alcantara special moment is viral. Alcantara’s ceremony is one for the books, it can’t get more memorable than this! Check it out below:

 

Kanye West Offers a Yeezys Deal to Failing Kidneys Fan

Every sneakerhead and Kanye fan have been vying for the new Yeezys, but things got real when a kidneys trade began part of a deal for the new kicks.

Matt Neal took to the world wide web in hopes of curing his health situation. In need of two new kidneys, Matt offered to give his size 10 Yeezys to anyone willing to give him a pair of organs.

Very creative.

The strong-willed fan got many responses on his Facebook page about the offer, but one he didn’t expect was from Kanye, himself.

Ye agreed to give Matt a new pair of the pricey kicks if the everything played out. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t allow anyone to trade human organs for money/ merchandise.

Nice of Kanye to offer, though. Hopefully Matt will find someone to help him out. Check his Facebook page for more info. Good luck, Matt!

Will The Government Shutdown Be Ended By A Steak Dinner?

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Outback Steakhouse thinks it could be! in light of recent discourse within our government, popular restaurant chain Outback Steakhouse has offered up their dinner table for four invited government officials to hash it our over a meal. In their “No rules. Just figure it out” initiative, The Outback has set up a dinner table located at 4821 North First St. in Arlington, VA. for the first ever “Steakhouse Summit” where they propose President Obama, Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell come together, on neutral ground, to eat and work out the current crisis our government is enduring.

“What can’t be solved when you table up to a steak dinner?” asked Mike Kappitt, Outback Steakhouse Chief Marketing Officer. “We’ve got a table roped off and a steak dinner ready to roll whenever our leaders are ready to sit down to dinner.”

While we doubt the President and other government officials will be dining at Outback Steakhouse’s pop-up shop of sorts, this is definitely a great marketing tool and some timely, clever thinking on their behalf. If only things were that simple.OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE STEAKHOUSE SUMMIT

Paris Hilton Becomes Newest Talent On Lil Wayne’s YMCMB Roster

By Posted on 63 1 m read

I don’t think ANYONE saw this coming but billionaire heiress Paris Hilton has recently been signed to Birdmans imprint, Cash Money Records. Apparently this courtship has been going on for quite sometime, with the release of Paris and Wayne’s song “Last Night” which came out in 2012 and a few other Paris YMCMB rendezvous. The announcement was made today, and confirmed by Birdman himself, on twitter and it would seem as though the veteran starlet is already working on her sophomore album.

This isn’t the first time Cash Money has had some eyebrow raising deals, Anita Baker is reportedly on Cash Money All-Stars as was the late Teena Marie before her passing, and we all remember how we found out about Cash Money book publishing through Evelyn Lozada on Basketball Wives. Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect from this collaboration so we’ll keep our ears to the streets and report back to you guys with any developments.

Pizza Hut Creates Pizza-Scented Perfume

By Posted on 64 1 m read

 

It started out as a joke, but now Pizza Hut has rolled out a real perfume that boasts “top notes of freshly baked, hand-tossed dough.”

Pizza Hut decided to make the perfume after the company’s community managers posted a joke on Facebook last August about bottling the smell of fresh-made pizza. Within half an hour “a few thousand people” had responded saying they wanted a bottle.

“When our ad team at GRIP brought the idea to us, we absolutely loved it,” says Beverley D’Cruz, Pizza Hut Canada’s marketing and product development director in a release. “What better way to celebrate our Facebook fans than by providing them with a way to enjoy the fresh smell of Pizza Hut pizza whenever they want!”

Pizza Hut cranked out 110 bottles of the limited-edition scent, and only the lucky Pizza Hut Canada Facebook fans who asked for it got one. The rest of us will have to settle for dabbing a steamy slice at the wrists and temples.

“Will we be seeing Pizza Hut perfume in department stores any time soon? Only time will tell,” said the release.
