Spoiled Rich Girl Revealing How She Affords NYC Life Will Make You Rage

Refinery29 probably made a bad call with publishing this article in their series entitled Money Diaries, which chronicles how the Millennial woman budgets her "hard-earned" money. In this particular installment, R29 interviews a 21-year-old college student and marketing intern living in New York City who makes $25 per hour and can somehow still afford to have a little extra cash left over after she pays the bills.

Sounds like a pretty typical Millennial life, right? Well sure, until you learn that said marketing intern has rich parents who pay her rent, phone bill and health insurance costs. Needless to say, the internet is absolutely raging about this spoiled rich girl's lavish lifestyle.

Artist Tries To Sell Bogus Keto 'Hot Dog Water' At A Festival For An Outrageous Price

Artist and CEO Douglas Bevans sold his "hot dog water" at the Car-Free Day festival in Vancouver, BC. What the hell is "hot dog water," you ask? It's unfiltered water in an extra fancy glass bottle with a hot dog floating inside. Bevans sold the water for a whopping $38 a piece, boasting bogus health benefits including weight loss, increased brain function and vitality.

Bevans has stated that his hot dog water was all a performance-art piece, intending to poke fun at other "health" products with no evidence to support any of their claims. So for all of you who were actually getting excited about trying out this new health craze: womp womp.

Russian Burger King Grilled Over Offensive World Cup "Impregnation" Prizes

These days fast food brands are generally in the news for their hilarious and sassy social media antics. In a way, this is still true for Burger King Russia - the brand just took the fire to a bizarre new level. The social media account for the train restaurant decided it was a good idea to offer a lifetime supply of burgers and 3 million rubles - if they managed to become impregnated by a World Cup soccer player. 

The move was almost immediately criticized by the media, and BK Russia scrambled to take the Facebook post down. This isn't the first time that Burger King Russia was flame-broiled over tasteless and offensive marketing ploys. The chain horrified the world after using the likeness of a controversial 16-year-old rape victim in a promotion. We don't know about you, but it's pretty clear that someone has got to be fired. 

Burger King Russia fail, pregnancy ad.

These Deadpool Photobombs Are The Epitome Of Marketing Genius

The Deadpool films have never been lacking in the smart marketing department, but these packaging "photobombs" really take things to the next level. The limited edition FOX Blu-Ray covers are only available at Walmart for a very limited time. While we appreciate the covers for their cleverness, they kind of leave us wishing for Deadpool cameos in the movies themselves. We're pretty sure the costumed anti-hero could add something special to any movie. Well, maybe any movie besides, like, Schindler's List.
