How do you dip your cookies?

The Swedish brand of biscuits Ballerina Kladdkaka recently launched a neat campaign, focused on a simple ritual that most of its consumers love to dip the wafer in milk before eating. The brand decided to dive one of the biscuits from more than 4,500 meters, where a parachutist simply destroys a small pool of milk with a packet of biscuits in their hands.

Through the site www.ballerina.se the best videos and photos sent to people 'dipping' their Ballerina cookies are being posted on the main page of the brand. I personally prefer my biscuits in bed, but hey, milk is just as awesome. The agency responsible is volontaire. VIA

Mark Evans Awesome Etched Leather Artwork

Knives. Swords. Blades. Axes. If it has a blade and can – in any way – be considered a weapon, men like playing with it. It’s hard-coded into our DNA like our love of boobs and fast cars. Mark Evans is an artist that makes the rest of us look like tomboys driving Power Wheels.

Evans starts with a big ass piece of leather and etches through the leather, using the suede that is uncovered to craft mind blowing pieces of art. When he’s done months later, the final product is the most artistically primal expression of manliness since the Model T.

He doesn’t do brushes, he can’t paint… he just plays with knives. www.markevansart.com VIA

Awesome Documentary: The king of Kong

You have to see "The King of Kong". Why? Well, maby because its probably the most awesomest documentary EVER. A wonderful stage is set up for a battle between good vs. evil. Will the underdog, who has been kicked down his entire life, reach his goal of scoring the highest Donkey Kong score ever? Will he meet face to face and defeat the evil, pompous villain in a match of "competitive gaming?" The protagonist is built up as a normal simpleton who has not been able to achieve his goals throughout life even with all the talent that he possesses. The antagonist is portrayed wonderfully as an arrogant hypocrite who thinks that the entire video game world revolves around him. You want nothing more than to see the villain fall down.

Awesome Hyper-Realistic Acrylic Body Painting

Alexa Meade thinks completely backwards. Most artists use acrylic paints to create portraits of people on canvas. But not Meade - she applies acrylic paints on her subjects and makes them appear to be a part of the painting!
Her innovative use of paint on the three dimensional surfaces of found objects, live models, and architectural spaces has been incorporated into a series of installations that create a perceptual shift in how we experience and interpret spatial relationships.

"I paint representational portraits directly on top of the people I am representing. The models are transformed into embodiments of the artist's interpretation of their essence. When captured on film, the living, breathing people underneath the paint disappear, overshadowed by the masks of themselves."
