People's Really Nice Or Horrible Celeb Encounters

Celebrity encounters can be a magical time where people cross paths with their heroes, and those heroes actually kind of live up to the hype. Other times though, it's a moment when one realizes that celebrities (even the "heroic ones") are just like any other human being. Often full of emotions, complications, thoughts, etc. If anything, some of those celebs might just be hurting for an opportunity to bond with another human being on a basic human being level, with no society enforced roles being played.

Celeb-Filled "Imagine" Video Inspires Parodies

When celebs banded together to create a video of them singing "Imagine", we don't imagine that this is how they thought the reception of the video would go. Many folks on Twitter were quick to poke fun at the video, and ask the celebs for money, instead of a star-studded song performance. Additionally, the parodies started popping up, and oh, they are brilliant.

This is a segment called I don't know the name of this color! Those shoes aren't orange really, or peach, or really any color I can name (this offends my sensibilities even further.) So please help me, dear readers and tell me what color those hideous shoes are.
