Kanye3

(PCM) It is no secret that rapper Kanye West was truly devastated by the loss of his mother Donta, who passed away suddenly back in 2007 due to complications from a cosmetic surgery procedure.

In addition to his latest musical tribute to his mother with the single “Only One” which features accompanying piano by the legendary Paul McCartney, West has now revealed that his he currently developing a video game in honor of his late mother as well.

When speaking with New York radio station Power 105.1 FM, West revealed details about the upcoming game saying,  “The idea is, it’s my mother going through the gates of heaven and you have to bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light.”.  He went on to say that they’ve apparently been working on the game quite a bit over the past six months.

At this time there has been no official release date set for the game and no information about what sort of platform the game will be offered.

Thin Mints Cause A Delay In Girl Scout Cookie Orders

Thin-Mints

(PCM) Everyone know that hands down Thin Mints are the most popular and sought after Girl Scout Cookie offering, however even the Girl Scouts themselves did realize just how popular until this year.

Sales of Thin Mints have soared this ordering season, so much so that there has now been a bit of a back-up on the manufacturing side and they have not been able to completely keep up with all of the orders for the popular cookie.

A Girl Scouts representative revealed that the manufacturers generally churn out about 9 million boxes of Thin Mints during the busiest part of cookie season and that equals out to about 25% of all boxes of cookies sold. It has not been revealed just how many boxes have been ordered so far this year to create a back-up in production.

The manufacturer issued the following statement in regards to delayed orders saying “While overall demand for Thin Mints has been greater than expected this season, we are working to ensure every order is delivered in a timely manner.”

Iggy Azalea Claims That Papa Johns Leaked Her Digits

Iggy-Azalea2

(PCM) Instead of tweeting about her excitement or anticipation for her appearance at the 57th Grammy Awards, “Fancy” singer Iggy Azalea took to her Twitter account to slam Papa Johns pizza for leaking out her personal cell phone number.

Azalea posted the following tweet, which claims that Papa Johns used to be her favorite pizza until one of the drivers apparently gave out her personal cell phone number to one of their family members.

In fairness to Azalea, she is really just looking for some answers and Papa Johns appears to be taking the entire situation as a big joke. They even went as far as to tweet back at Azalea using her own song title as a witty response.  

Bad move Papa Johns .. totally not funny! Azalea went on to tweet that she still has yet to receive any real answers from Papa Johns and alluded that a supervisor even said to her “Don’t worry, his mom has spoken to him”.  So unprofessional. Something tells us that the delivery driver will be out of a job fairly soon.

Play Money Being Replaced By Real Money In Some French Monopoly Sets

Monopoly-money1

(PCM) In France, as a way to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the popular board game Monopoly, manufacturers are replacing the play money in the game with real money in the form of euros.

Eighty game sets will contain actual money. Ten of the sets will include five 20-euro notes, two 50-euro notes, and one 100-euro note. Another sixty-nine sets will include five 10-euro notes and five 20-euro notes.

The grand prize winning set will actually have all of the play money replaced with real money which equals out to the amount of $20,580 euros. We bet the lucky individual that gets that set will be thanking Uncle Pennybags all the way to the bank!

The game sets began rolling out to stores, only in France, earlier this week. CNN contacted Monopoly manufacturer Hasbro to ask whether or not we could be seeing any of the real money Monopoly sets released here in The States to celebrate the 80th anniversary, however they had not yet received a reply.

Some fun Monopoly facts to celebrate 80 years:

  •  The longest Monopoly game in history lasted for 70 days straight
  • Over 275 million sets have been sold worldwide. The game is available in 111 countries and in 43 different languages.
  • The character locked behind bars is named Jake the Jailbird and he was locked up by Officer Edgar Mallory.
  • Since 1935, over 1 billion people have played the game
  • San Francisco jeweler Sidney Mobell created the most expensive Monopoly board valued at over 2 million dollars.

Can We Talk About That Nationwide Commercial?

super-bowl-meme1

(PCM) One of the biggest buzz kills during the Super Bowl 2015 absolutely had to be when insurance company Nationwide aired their child death commercial during the first half of the Big Game. In fact, I’d even be willing to say that there was probably more entertainment garnered from reading everyone’s reaction tweets on Twitter after the spot aired than from watching the Super Bowl itself.

In fact, we have no idea what in the world was going on with any of the ads from this year’s Super Bowl. Normally, we look forward to some of the most clever and quirky ads to be broadcast during the game, as advertisers are supposed to be on their “A” game for these spots.

This year the Super Bowl ads were a huge downer, with the exception of perhaps two or three semi-funny spots. It seemed that all the commercials were pushing this year were dead children, domestic violence, hashtags, and lost puppies. It was really terrible!

The only area where Nationwide may have succeeded is that their brand is certainly on everyone’s lips and you know what they say … no publicity is bad publicity. Many people have already begun calling Nationwides spot the worst commercial choice in Super Bowl history. Ouch!  Did the company even think it through?  Any bit of common sense would have said that this was not the right time or place for airing that type of commercial.

In dealing with the backlash and controversy over the ad, Nationwide has since released a statement which says:

 Preventable injuries around the home are the leading cause of childhood deaths in America. Most people don’t know that. Nationwide ran an ad during the Super Bowl that started a fierce conversation. The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us-the safety and well being of our children. We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited MakeSafeHappen.com, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death. Nationwide has been working with experts for more than 60 years to make homes safer. While some did not care for the ad, we hope it served to begin a dialogue to make safe happen for children everywhere.
