Rugby star Nick Youngquest stars – shirtless – in new commercial for “Invictus”

Australian rugby star and LGBT ally Nick Youngquest is the face of “Invictus”, a new fragrance for men by Paco Rabanne, which debuted the first commercial today.

The video follows Youngquest “through the euphoria of victory” as he parts a sea of photographers, dominates his opponents on the field and brings home a trophy—all while remaining shirtless and smelling like a million bucks, obviously.

Hunkiest wedding party ever?

Hunky guest at Artie’s wedding party

Artie Baxter, an actor best known for playing Threesome Guy on The O.C. and John Stevens in The Rock’s Gridiron Gang, recently married his girlfriend in Hawaii.

And it appears that Baxter has really muscular, scruffy, tan friends. Check out a few members of Baxter’s wedding party. Like, where was my invite?

See?  A wedding took place –

One Million Moms doesn’t like Kraft Foods “Zesty Guy”

Well, I guess you could have seen this one coming from One Million Moms (who are really more like ‘less than 60K’):

Last week’s issue of People Magazine had the most disgusting ad on the inside front cover that we have ever seen Kraft produce. A full 2-page ad features a n*ked man lying on a picnic blanket with only a small portion of the blanket barely covering his g*nitals. It is easy to see what the ad is really selling. A person has to look closely to see the item the company is marketing because the salad dressing bottle is so small next to the male model, picnic basket and other food items. There is also a small Kraft logo in the upper corners with the words “Silverware Optional – Let’s Get Zesty.” The website is listed in the bottom corner.

Kraft has gone too far and will push away loyal, conservative customers with this new ad campaign. Christians will not be able to buy Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their advertising. The consumers they are attempting to attract – women and mothers – are the very ones they are driving away. Who will want Kraft products in their fridge or pantry if this vulgarity is what they represent? One Million Moms cannot get over the gall of this company. It is unnecessary for Kraft to use s*x to sell salad dressing!

I think the ad is cute and fun, personally.  I feel the need to get “zesty” already.

And by the way, if you click here you can send a Zestygram!  I made this one for my husband Michael and sent to him via Twitter.  Lots of options and fun for a diversion 🙂

NYC: Broadway Beauty Pageant raises $50,000+ for Ali Forney Center

The annual Broadway Beauty Pageant took place on Monday night in New York, and raised more than $50,000 for the Ali Forney Center, the city’s largest LGBT homeless youth shelter.

The winner of the pageant, selected by the audience, was Pippin’s Orion Griffiths. The above video is Orion’s “swimsuit” competition where he first stretches a bit, then strips down to his swim suit.

Pretty impressive.

I saw PIPPIN last month and it was just as hard to not watch Orion as it is here.

2013 US Naval Academy Herndon Monument Climb

The United States Naval Academy class of 2016 goes through the traditional right of passage of climbing the greased obelisk of the Herndon Monument in Annapolis. The class completed the task in 1 hour, 32 minutes, and 43 seconds.

I found stills of the event yesterday, but was looking for the video.

God bless America.

Happy Hump Day.
