Today I honor Prince in the only way I know how…Through a half-ass collection of his music on our weekly Throwback Thursday post. I’m sorry if this post got too emotional for you. R.I.P. Prince 1999 Kiss Go Crazy When Doves Cry Purple Rain Partyman Cream Raspberry Beret Advertisements
This might be one of the funniest things I have ever seen. You will re-watch these many times I assure you. Back in 1999 Jeff Goldblum did a series of commercials for Apple. Flash-forward to a few years ago and someone has taken these commercials and used some sort of apple product (I’m gonna say a shuffle?) to slow them down and make it seem like Jeff Goldblum is drunk.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 17 years since Will Smith released Big Willie Style, an album that kicked off a 2 year reign where Will Smith was the king of the radio. Will Smith could possibly be the best and most successful cross-over artist. Many have forgotten that he was a celebrated music act because of his successful film career.

The end result…Tomacco, a highly addictive vegetable that “tastes like grandma”. Tomacco became a common reference ever since for items that really weren’t good but yet we always wanted one. McDonald’s Pizza for instance. While Tomacco seemed like a cartoon plot, we are getting closer and closer to it being a reality with the creation of TomTatos, a half tomato/half potato plant. This Frankensteinian plant will be available for sale starting next April. But with that said, scientists need to beware….or else….
