Travolta’s Terrible Music Video, And 4 Other Things You May Have Missed

Keith Fenimore takes his shots at what’s been trending this week in social media. [Dec 1 – Dec 7]

1
A phony lottery winner who promised a random person $1 million of his winnings posted his smiling mug on Facebook holding what appeared to be a $239 million dollar winning Powerball ticket. It turns out the ticket was actually a Photoshopped sham.
If you want to see a real winner, check out this shot out of me holding the winning ticket from the Midway Carnival that landed me a sweet ass toaster! And in case you think I doctored the photo and didn’t really win the toaster, I ask you… did this bread toast itself?

Ford has turned to talk show host Jimmy Fallon - and his massive twitter following - to script a 60-second Super Bowl spot built around their Lincoln MKZ brand. If you care to submit an idea, it’s not too late.
I hear the first commercial concept Fallon submitted was rejected: It involved him driving over Jay Leno in a Lincoln and taking over The Tonight Show

LinkedIn just released its annual list of the most overused words and phrases used in members’ LinkedIn profiles. Among the 185+ million users, the words identified as the most overused buzzwords are “creative” and “effective.”
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, LinkedIn, but I did my own research and found that the words “overused” and “buzzwords” were actually the most overused buzzwords… at least in this sentence. I hope my insight into this matter is both creative and effective!

Some very patient dogtrainers in New Zealand have taught three dogs to drive a car. The hope is that the mutts behind the wheel will turn heads and help raise awareness for pet adoption and preventing animal cruelty.
I support the cause, but I can no longer in good conscience put my dog on a pedestal for being able to lick his ass without tipping over.

President Obama held a Twitter town hall this week where he took questions from the masses. Here's a snippet of some behind-the-scenes footage of the Commander-in-Chief putting his laptop to good use.
This is the tweet I sent him: “Mr. President, please put this fiscal cliff thing on hold and assign a task force to eradicate the new Christmas video starring a terrifying-looking John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. You must have a universal delete button you can hit to save mankind from this entertainment landmine.”
