Weird Idea Jeans: Glenn Beck protests 'socialist' Levi's by selling 'all-American' dungarees

Not sure what to give your crazy uncle this holiday season? Fret no more: Fearless patriot Glenn Beck has come to your rescue. While James Van Der Beek’s BJ-emblazoned “Beek Jeans” were a joke, Beck’s own denim line is very real — and every pair of pants comes imbued with its maker’s signature arch-conservative message.

As Time explains, Beck was inspired after seeing a Levi’s ad that coupled images of young protesters with a voiceover culled from a Charles Bukowski poem. He excoriated the denim company on his radio show in late September, saying that it was promoting a “European socialist” message — “Just for what? Because you just want to sell, because you want the controversy? I don’t think so. You believe it. You say you want your jeans to be the uniform of progress.”

Beck vowed never again to give a “dime” to Levi’s, a company founded by the American immigrant who invented blue jeans — and this week began selling his own patriotic jeans, which are made in North Carolina and Kentucky.  READ FULL STORY

Neiman Marcus holiday 'fantasy gifts' are expensive and ridiculous

You get a multi-million dollar gift! And you get a multi-million dollar gift!

Neiman Marcus wants you to buy a crazy expensive present for just about everyone. The company has just released their annual holiday catalog, which is known for featuring outrageous “fantasy gifts” every year.

Some examples from this year: A walk-on role in Broadway’s Annie: The Musical for $30,000, a hen house inspired by France’s Versailles palace for $100,000, and — most expensive of all  — a pair of “his and hers” timepieces for just over $1 million from Van Cleef & Arpels. According to the AP, the watches depict a tale of lost love on the faces and come complete with a trip to romantic Paris and Geneva. READ FULL STORY

Now James Franco is directing shoe commercials -- er, 'short films'

You say “potato,” and James Franco says “potahto,” because he’s fancy like that. (Side note: Has anyone ever seriously pronounced the word that way, even in Britain?) You say “actor,” and James Franco says “multihyphenate performance artist with minors in degree collection and Huffington Postery.” You say “shoe commercial,” and, evidently, Franco says “short film” — even though the following clip is totally an ad for Stuart Weitzman booties.

The AP reports that Franco has directed “four vignettes” for the high-end footwear magnate, each of which will debut on the brand’s Facebook page. The videos track model Petra Nemcova as she struts around in Weitzman heels, taking long strides and never allowing herself to smile. (After all, they’re not selling toothpaste.) Though the full “film” won’t be available until Oct. 26, the first installment has already hit YouTube:

Lady Gaga's perfume ad is just as weird as you'd expect -- VIDEO

Only Lady Gaga could get away with releasing a 30-second “trailer” for an advertisement… followed, one month later, by the full ad, which clocks in at an astonishing five minutes and 30 seconds. That’s 22 seconds longer than her “Bad Romance” video, though not nearly as lengthy as her epic “Telephone” mini-movie.

Anyway: The commercial — er, short film — starts with a title card that simply reads “WARNING” in bright red letters. After that, screaming and Phantom of the Opera-style organ chords lead us into a shot of a giant, golden Gaga statue, which lays in repose before an army of mostly naked dudes.

After that, things sort of go off the rails.

But why read a description of Gaga’s latest foray into video when you could just watch the darn thing yourself? Have at it, little monsters:
