Few icons from folklore and mythology have been branded and co-opted more than the leprechaun. Stories of their rare appearances and coveted pot of gold have permeated almost every aspect of popular culture. They have become so synonymous with Irish culture that the streets are filled with tall green hats and green coats every St. Patrick’s Day. Their history, however, is far different from the traditional leprechauns that endlessly wander into bars and fight hangovers one weekend in March. Take a look at a few things you probably didn’t know about leprechauns.
McDonald’s Shamrock Shake usually comes once a year around St. Patrick’s Day, but as the holiday passes, so does the elusive tasty beverage. Now you don’t have to be in March (or Irish) to enjoy one year round.
There are few holidays that create more excitement and festiveness than St. Patrick’s Day. All over the country, people crowd the local pub in green clothes where they guzzle a ton of green beer, only to puke it back out in a green mess and wake up the next day in a green haze.
Of course, just like the crazy uncle in your family who thinks he’s Santa Claus in July, some people can take a good thing way too far. These are the trigger signals that you need to de-green yourself.
Panama City Beach, Florida always has high hopes for their Spring Break crowds, and this year, they are hoping that it will turn more than just a few overly-hormonal heads. People from the Guinness Book of World Records will be on the scantily clad beaches of this Spring Break mecca with their clickers in their hands (their “counting” clickers, sickos) to measure the world’s largest bikini parade.
Sports may have their place in society now, but eventually the crowd will grow tired of extra padding and helmets, and want more. Ultimate Tazer Ball hopes to fill that void with some almost lethal goodness.
RobbReport.com Elit by Stolichnaya has been trying to up their vodka game with high-priced, high-class brands that have gone through more cold-filtration and aging than a cryogenics lab. Their new “Pristine” brand – priced at $3,000 a bottle – should come with a heavenly light shining on it at all times.
Beer commercials became tolerable to football fans with short attention spans when ad men realized that guys like blonds in skimpy clothes with perky breasts. The day our screens gave us a shot of the gorgeous Klimaszewski sisters, the ‘Coors Light Twins,’ we built an altar to the glory of Madison Avenue for bringing them into our lives.
The new NBC show ‘Smash’s’ key demographic (music loving women and people revolting against ‘Glee’) and their very patient male partners shouldn’t have any problem recognizing the show’s underdog star — Katharine McPhee. She first popped up on our TV during the fifth season of ‘American Idol’ and quickly became one of the show’s breakout stars.
Super Bowl ads tend to have more longevity than traditional commercials thanks to their large budgets, creative freedom and overall goal to keep you glued to the TV between quarters. Some, however, aren't remembered for the joy they brought but rather for the public outcry they produced.
