Yesterday, Seattle-based record label Sub Pop shared a letter on their Tumblr blog that had reportedly come from a Virginia Tech student, asking the singer of Nirvana if "she" would appear in a video to be shown during Homecoming Week along with members of the Ying Yang Twins, Slightly Stoopid and some NFL stars. According to the post, Sub Pop staff members dressed up like Nirvana and recorded a forthcoming response. Could this be an elaborate prank? Sub Pop

GoldieBlox, the company that is trying to break the mold when it comes to toys for girls, has released a new ad for its latest product, an action figure named Goldie.

Instead of a set of hairbrushes, dresses or makeup, Goldie comes with a set of tools and blocks to construct a working zipline.

The ad, which features a song by Metric, portrays 1984-esque future where an assembly line of identical young girls are picking up Barbie dolls from a conveyer belt, as a "Big Sister" tells them that "beauty is perfection."

Sounds a lot like a certain controversial new Victoria's Secret ad.

But Goldie comes in with her hammer and saves the day, smashing the machine (and any preconceived notions of what a girl's future career path should be) to pieces.



From their website:

"More than just a doll, her articulated shoulders, hips, knees and joints along with specially designed hands and feet are designed for action. With the included construction kit, kids learn how to build Goldie a 13' zipline and send her soaring!"
