Friday Wrap: Most Sexist Super Bowl Commercials, Funny Wet Cats, and More...

by: Burnt Orange Report

It's Friday! Huddle around some of these blurbs for warmth.

Let's start off this week with that Coke ad from the Super Bowl that celebrated our nation's diversity.

Below the jump, read about how Canada responded to Sochi's sexist policies, progress on the Jurassic Park sequel, and more...

Don't want to have to wade through all of the ads to find the most sexist the Superbowl brought this year? You don't have to, thanks to this nifty list of The Most Terrible Super Bowl Commercials from bitch media.

Funny wet cats!

Jurassic World, the sequel to the best movie ever made (sorry, Star Wars), will be shot on 35 mm and 65 mm film meaning large action sequences should be IMAX ready!

The Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion is poking fun at Russia's anti-gay laws with a homo-erotic ad for "the games" which is says, "have always been a little gay."

-Joe Deshotel


Austin City Council will soon talk about the big controversy: 5 or 6 students living in a single house! (egads!) Also, please; stop calling them "stealth dorms." We are students, not sinister ninjas.

While Congress cut food stamps by $8 billion, one Houston man has reached into his own pocket to make sure hungry kids don't have to worry about their parents falling behind on lunch payments.

At the Grammys, we all saw what Taylor Swift's hair can DO, but what does Taylor Swift's hair MEAN? Ok, so I didn't watch the Grammys, but I was compelled to look up T-Swift's performance after reading this article on the semiotics of her blonde hair-flipping.
