You thought that Obama photo shoot was opportunistic? Oh, brother, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I’ve heard some folks call this commercial “inspiring” or “game changing.” I dunno, you can judge for yourself. More of my cynicism after the video.

I mean, yes, it’s nice that this is a beer commercial that celebrates friendship over some sort of testosterone-fueled nonsense. It’s also lovely that these men can be both sensitive and physically strong. But I find the whole thing manipulative. And I’m usually the first to grab a tissue. What do you think? Is my heart blacker than a pint of plain?

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)

Bigots, Trolls & MRAs Are Not Welcome in the Comments
