Supermodels prefer swallowtails
Luxury fashion accessories magnate Chanel has a new ad campaign built around Gisele Bündchen threading a tropical tube and…actually, just forget it. Words fail. Watch the video above. The part you’re interested in starts at the :20 second mark and runs to about 1:15. That barrelface, it rivals John John in terms of pure, blank-expression […]

And looks good doing it
Garrett Parkes surfs kinda like Pat O’Connell. Or maybe he just looks a little like him. But that first turn, for a moment, you, think, “Pat?” Is that you?
