Laser cut your seaweed so you can have fancy, designer sushi. Because we have nothing else to do, right?
Nice story though: Umino Hiroyuki has a strong family history in creating seaweed. It was his grandfather who founded Umino Seaweed Shop. So Umino Hiroyuki paired up with foreign advertising agency I&S BBDO to create laser-cut, designer seaweed with intricate and detailed patterns. The idea for the Design Nori was a response to the decline in seaweed consumption in Japan.
This brain-bending 3-minute promotional video for the supermarket chain EDEKA has currently 1.8 million YouTube views and counting. The star of «Supergeil» is 58-year-old German electro-pop musician, sometime TV host, and actor Friedrich Liechtenstein (born Hans-Holger Friedrich). The EDEKA ad is actually a remake of Liechteinstein's semi-viral hit, also called «Supergeil».

There's no denying Beyoncé and Jay Z's (almost professional) chemistry. Remember that Grammys performance? If that's what real life is like for Mr and Mrs Carter, there is not much room for doubt on what their late night text messages might look like.

Watch above for the best use of the surfboard emoji ever, and below for the original clip.

Dear March, come in
How glad I am
I looked for you before
Put down your hat —

Did you leave Nature well?
Oh, March, come right upstairs with me,
I have so much to tell!
Stanley Kubrick, who wrote and directed Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining, was one of America's most influential filmmakers. Directors ranging from the Coen Brothers to Tim Burton paid visual homage to his works in their own films.

Previously only available for viewing in museum archives or in books about Kubrick, curators at the Museum of the City of New York and art advisors at VandM examined over 10,000 negatives of Kubrick’s photos to hand select 25 for a limited edition sale.
