Tupac, Marilyn Monroe live on in Dutch beer ad -- VIDEO


The world may have lost Tupac Shakur, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, and Bruce Lee years ago — but Dutch beer company Bavaria isn’t ready to let them go.

In Bavaria’s latest commercial for a fruit-flavored beer, the six deceased stars — aged but still wearing their signature outfits, including a white dress for Monroe and rose-tinted glasses for Lennon — lounge around on a remote island drinking beer and hiding from passing ships.

Not sure how seeing Elvis drinking a lemon-flavored beer is going to make us want to go out and buy a 6-pack — but hey, maybe the conspiracy theorists will be into it. Watch the commercial below:


John Lennon's Hollywood star defaced with...Grateful Dead lyrics?

Nothing says “Happy Birthday, John Lennon”like a little nonsensical graffiti on the former Beatles’ Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

The star which sits outside the Capitol Records building was defaced Saturday night by unknown vandals, and scrubbed clean by Monday. We couldn’t have Lennon’s star looking all messy for his 73rd birthday on Wednesday.

Yoko Ono tweets photo of John Lennon's bloody glasses

The image isn’t new. The messaging isn’t new either. But Yoko Ono decided this week — on the 44th anniversary of her marriage to John Lennon — to use the disturbing image of Lennon’s bloodied glasses, which were removed from his person after he was shot in December 1980, to help wage a campaign for peace. She took to social media to get the message out.

In a series of tweets to her almost 3.7 million followers, she passed along statistics on domestic gun deaths and missives on how it is hurting the country – occasionally tweeting directly to media personalities such as Piers Morgan and Michael Moore.

The image was first used on the cover of her 1981 album Season of Glass, but in that image they were next to a glass of (half filled?) water. It remains striking and powerful today; whether or not it adds any impact to the gun control debate is another question.

Take a look at some of the tweets below and let us know what you think.
