Fast food fail
Chicken McNuggets are a food group. A succulent fried nugget of chicken goodness that can be dipped in a myriad of sauces, however after last week’s Dragon TV report on Husi Foods, foods such as McNuggets have become tainted. It was revealed that Husi Foods, a major supplier to McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks and various other fast food chains, was using spoiled and expired meats in it’s products. Husi Food’s, owned by American food supply company OSI Group, is now under investigation by the government. McDonalds, Yum Brands! and Starbucks have already severed ties with Husi.

Fast runnings
Blowing up the Internet right now are a pair of extreme sports videos that serve both as awesome videos and ridiculous product marketing. The first video was about the Assassin’s Creed Unity video game while the second was an advert for Suntory’s CC Lemon drink. Despite being shills for two different things, both videos feature Parkour! Parkour, which is French for “the course” is an extreme activity where people free run climb and jump about using an urban environment as the obstacle course. These two videos feature a lot of really cool parkour.

Who let the crabs out?
Spotted in Beijing’s “trendy” Sanlitun area, a group of young scantily dressed women were walking crabs. That’s literally taking a crab, putting it on a leash and taking them outside. No, this isn’t new trend. These young women were walking crabs as part of a publicity stunt for the new seafood restaurant Pirate King. The only question now is, will Pirate King serve Crabby Patties.
