The general consensus is that nobody enjoys sitting through television commercials, but we know there's not much of a way around it. Sometimes, advertisers don't seem to care at all about how audiences react to their commercials, while some advertisers totally get their demographic. I don't go around watching advertisements for fun or anything, but these three recent ads are so good you almost can't tell that they're pitching something.

What People Are Talking About

This week, everyone was up in arms about everything. Beyonce cut her hair! A fake documentary was aired on the Discovery Channel! And an Amazon.com package was stolen! Commence freak-outs!

Beyonce's Pixie Cut

Beyonce cut her hair and, with the explosive reactions, you'd have thought the world stopped spinning or something. I say this as a huge Beyonce fan: everything will be okay! It's just hair! #Beyonce was trending all day long yesterday as people weighed in on whether they loved it or hated it and tweeted all about how Beyonce was obviously copying Miley Cyrus. (I, for one, have never seen short, blond hair on a woman prior to Miley Cyrus. Nope, it's never been done before.) But what most were wondering is: why did Beyonce do it? I can think of a few reasons: she's an adult; why not; everyone's talking about it; or she never wants her hair to get caught in a fan again.
