Last week was a busy one in New York; Pope Francis visited the Big Apple for the first time, the Giants had their first victory after beginning the season 0-2, and the Yankees continued to battle it out for first place in the American League East. Even with all of that going on, the biggest story to come out of the city may have been Pizza Rat. What exactly is Pizza Rat? Well, he or she is a rat who attempted to bring a slice of pizza down the stairs of a New York City subway station. Someone captured the event on video and uploaded it to YouTube. Quickly going viral, the clip has already garnered well over 6 million views on the video-sharing website.
This morning, Beyonce gave a sneak peek of a song from her upcoming Mrs. Carter album when she released a 61-second video promo for Pepsi. The two recently partnered for the Super Bowl, and the latest video shows Beyonce sipping a can of Pepsi before dancing, surrounded by mirrors. In each mirror, she sees a reflection of previous versions of herself. There's the "Bootylicious" Beyonce, "Crazy In Love" Beyonce, and (of course) "Single Ladies" Beyonce — and then they all dance together to promote the motto, "live for now."
Prior to the video, Beyonce has posted a cryptic six second video with the hashtag #BeyHereNow, asking fans to visit her site at 9 a.m. EST today. It makes sense that the singer would release something new on this date, 4/4/13, considering her obsession with the number 4 (even the digits of this year, 1 and 3, add up to 4). But she was totally one minute late (not that I was sitting here waiting, which I actually was) and it doesn't even matter, because it's Beyonce.
What do you think of the song/promo?
