Hyundai “Pipe Job” Suicide Commercial

Damn man. Somewhere out in the world an ad executive is cleaning out his desk. You can’t make a suicide commercial bro. At what point did the pompous creative director that was in charge of this account think this was a good idea? And how bout Hyundai??? What’s wrong with you fiends? HOW DOES THIS GET APPROVED? Even my dumbass who could give a fuck less about a majority of people’s feelings woulda been like “ummm nah this aint cool b.” Fucking Hyundai man. Ya’ll been killing shit and then you go and do this. Fucking idiots.

NYPD: Pedestrian Died Because He Ran Into Cop Car

robinson-tamon

NYPD has reportedly changed its story about what happened to Tamon Robinson, the man who suffered fatal injuries when he was chased by officers in a police cruiser through a housing complex in Brooklyn. Whereas witnesses said police ran Robinson over, NYPD now claims the victim killed himself by running into the police cruiser, which wasn’t moving.

Witnesses say cops ran over Tamon Robinson, then dragged him, unconscious, from beneath the cruiser.
Meanwhile, the Daily News reports that, a year after the crash, District Attorney Charles Hynes has yet to decide whether to bring the case to a grand jury.

Tamon Robinson, 27, was loading paving stones into an SUV at Bayview Houses in Canarsie on April 12, 2012, when according to press accounts he was chased by officers who believed he was stealing the bricks. From a Times story published a week later, after Robinson had died: “Mr. Robinson ran toward his building, but a police car hit him before he reached it, according to a police report about the events.”

The Times said the Internal Affairs Bureau was investigating Robinson’s death.

Contrary to the initial NYPD account, on Saturday the Daily News reported that the official NYPD report claims “the police car was stopped on a footpath outside the Bayview Houses last April when Robinson ‘did run into’ the vehicle, causing him to fall backward and strike his head.”

This story would strain credulity even without conflicting reports from people who saw the crash. DNAinfo reported that, according to witnesses, “police at the scene pulled Robinson from under the car, yelling ‘Wake up! Wake up!’ before bouncing him off the hood of the car.”

The Daily News says an independent expert has been hired by Hynes’s office to reconstruct the crash. “We can’t make a decision until we have the final report,” said a Hynes spokesperson.

NYPD sent Robinson’s family a bill for damage to the cruiser, but rescinded it after the media picked up the story.

In another instance of NYPD using a police car as a deadly weapon, last August officers rammed a dirt bike in the Bronx, killing the bike’s operator and injuring a passenger. The Daily News notes that the NYPD Patrol Guide “prohibits ‘ramming’ in an attempt to stop a vehicle.”

Really? Everyone do me a favor. Go outside and give yourself like 50 yards between yourself and a parked car. Run as fast as you can. Like there’s an alien crocodile zombie with aids chasing you. Run right into that parked car. YOU ARE NOT GONNA DIE. This really is some bullshit. If we cannot count on police men to not murder people and get away with it, how do you expect our society to run itself? This shit aint right and even though I’m trying to make it funny, this shit is really alarming. THESE ARE THE POLICE. The police shouldn’t be able to kill someone by mistake and then say it was their own fault and send their family a bill for damages. THIS IS AMERICA. This shit shouldn’t be happening.

Lenny Cooke

In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the most hyped high school basketball player in the country, ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. In an era when high school stars were forgoing college hoops in favor of the potential multi-million dollar contracts promised in the NBA, Lenny was supposed to be the next superstar. He had the world at his fingertips. But over a decade later, while his peers are taking home MVP awards and Championship trophies, Lenny has never played a minute in the NBA. What went wrong?

Lenny Cooke will be playing at the Tribeca Film Festival this week in New York City.

Yo. I’m bout to cry. As as someone who had hoop dreams, I never was jealous of the chosen few. I rooted for them. I love the game of basketball. There was a point in my life where I spent every second of the day pretending to be Michael Jordan. My dumbass once was pretend dribbling in the crib and in my head I’m like “The clock is at 7 seconds, Oakshades with a strong push to the defender’s right, 5 seconds, he spins back to the lef…” and then i cracked my face against the wall on the spin move. Blood everywhere. I love basketball to the point where I idolized the young hoopers around the country. In 2001 I was 13, my doctor said I was gonna be 6’8″ and Lenny Cooke was gonna be a star. It’s 2013 I am not 6’8″, and Lenny Cooke never put on a Knick jersey. I’d seen him hoop. To see this happen to a legend like Lenny Cooke breaks my fucking heart. Never fiend so hard you ruin your life.

$5 of Grub Around The World

This is cool but I would have rather seen like a $5 meal vs $5 random groceries and shit. Wave spent $40 on grub at after the Clippers game last night. He got a sandwich and two pints of Ben & Jerry’s. I feel like we could have feed a family of 13 in about 42 different countries with $40. Seamless web is like the best and worst invention of all time. Fuck you Seamless.

@oakshades

The Dow Jones Drops 145 Points From a FAKE Tweet

OB-XE783_dowplu_G_20130423131952

U.S. stocks and the dollar briefly plunged Tuesday afternoon and U.S. Treasury bonds and gold prices soared, after a tweet from the Associated Press’s Twitter account claimed that there were two explosions in the White House and that President Barrack Obama had been injured.

Markets quickly swung back after the Associated Press said on its corporate website that its account had been hacked. The White House confirmed that there had been no incident.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 145 points between 1:08 p.m. EDT and 1:10 p.m., following the erroneous tweet.

HOLY SHIT. Talk about potential ROIs and trying to quantify the value/impact of social media. Every marketing agency in the world needs to add this case study fucking A-SAP.

Like most people, I totally overlooked this during the short frenzy when everyone on Twitter thought Obama was dead. But man this REAL consequence of one FAKE tweet is just overwhelming.

Absolutely nuts. So many implications. I don’t think we truly understand the potential and power we are sitting on here with social media. Literally one fucking fake tweet sent our entire stock marketing plummeting. That’s insane! Everyone already knows how much faster Twitter, Reddit, and certain blogs are compared to the media. Anyone that didn’t know sure as hell found out with the coverage of the Boston attacks last week. But now we are starting to see the reverse effect of this. We are forgetting that there are some industries that DO move as fast as social media, aka investors that trade based on breaking news.

This is dangerous stuff fiends. Maybe a solution is something as simple as strengthening security for certain verified, high security, accounts. Like as of right now, the AP, President Obama, and Wave Bandana all have the same security login ability on Twitter. No fucking way Wave Bandana and the Associated Press should be held to the same fidelity of security. Maybe it’s something more complex. I don’t know. All I know is I hope the good guys are taking note of this, because all the bad guys out there certainly did.

@Wave_Bandana / Blogs

PS – Kind of terrifying how on the edge everyone is no? Like I get it. We had a terrorist attack last week and if just a week later the President was under attack, clearly that would mean shit was hitting the fan in this country. But Jesus the whole financial sector was about to sell out and get the fuck out of here. Way to stick it out and all come together. Fuck.

Jimmy Kimmel Gets Coachella Attendees To Lie About Knowing Fake Bands

Oh my.

Brilliant because you’re going to get everyone at Coachella with this. You’re going to the people going to the festival strictly to get fucked up that want to seem like they have a grasp of the underground. You’re going to get hipsters because they don’t want to be one-upped. Fuck, you may have even gotten me because my iTunes is so full of shit that I may just be like “Wait, do I have that?

Either way I love the inclusion of Two Door Cinema Club — who were incredibly good on weekend 1 — with a fake album name. Well done.

-Droog

PS: My Coachella recap, which will double as a novel, will be up soon(ish).
