Steve Irwin’s Family Is Returning To Animal Planet 11 Years After His Death

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

No question: Animals are the Irwin family business. That’s why we’re so excited to learn that Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin are returning to create shows and projects for Animal Planet, 11 years after the tragic death of family patriarch Steve.

According to a press release, the Irwins will be global ambassadors for Discovery Communications, which owns Animal Planet. On the channel, they will develop and produce television projects.

“We’re so excited to be returning to Animal Planet and our wonderful Discovery Communications family,” Robert said in a video the family recorded and posted on Instagram.

Crikey! So excited to announce that we are officially returning to @AnimalPlanet next year! We love the @DiscoveryChannel family 💙

A post shared by Bindi Irwin (@bindisueirwin) on Oct 18, 2017 at 7:54am PDT

Added Bindi, “So watch out for next year. We have wonderful new adventures coming to your television screen.”

The youngest Irwins (Robert is 13, Bindi, 19) basically have their interest in animals and most especially crocodiles in the blood. Their parents, Steve and Terri, made footage of themselves trapping crocodiles on their honeymoon for a special that aired in Australia in 1996. “The Crocodile Hunter” became an international sensation for Animal Planet, which aired the series from 1996-2007.

Bindi and Robert essentially grew up on camera; Steve was holding his 1-month-old son Robert while feeding a chicken carcass to a crocodile in 2004, a controversial incident that led to Australia changing its croc-handling laws.

Harrison Ford’s Halloween Costumes Over The Years Have Been Amazing

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

If you thought Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were the only celebs to get into the spirit of Halloween, guess again. Celebrities are constantly trying to one-up each other, coming up with the most hilarious costumes we’ve ever seen. They actually inspire us to get a little more creative each year, in the hopes that we can finally get on their level. Among the many celebs who KILL on Halloween, Indiana Jones and Ally McBeal, (or rather, married couple Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart) will go to any lengths, and I mean, ANY LENGTHS, to knock it out of the park on Halloween.

With Halloween around the corner, Harrison Ford is probably checking out costume rentals.

When you ask yourself what on Earth would Harrison Ford go dressed as, the first thing that comes to mind is Han Solo, the character he portrayed in four Star Wars films, but you’d be wrong.


youtube.com

If there’s one thing Ford knows how to do is how to pull out all the stops on Halloween.

Maybe he’d take out a whip and put on his Indy hat and go dressed as Indiana Jones. But nope! If we’ve learned anything about Harry’s Halloween costume choices is that they’re a huge departure from anything he’s ever played.


youtube.com

Going dressed up as a nun is so “Sister Act” and we’d never in a million years imagine that was him.

We would totally follow Harrison Ford wherever he may go all dressed up as a nun as long as he promises to share some of the booze he’s holding. We’d totally toast to this costume from 2010.


laura olin

The legendary actor always finds a way to captivate us like a rock star.

In 2011, the paparazzi was probably wondering where Harrison Ford was. No one realized he was dressed up as a wild 80s rocker completely with crazy hair, skull shirt, and zebra printed pants.


laura olin

No rocker could ever go on tour without a groupie and Harrison was no exception.

Obviously, he didn’t go all rock star alone. He had his gorgeous groupie, or rather, his wife, Calista Flockhart going all 80s too. Bet Ally McBeal would never have worn anything like that.


laura olin

Hollywood stars are always looking to age in reverse, except for Harry and Calista.

Despite their considerable age difference, Harrison and Calista decided to even the age gap by dressing up as pensioners in Brentwood and walking around L.A. at night in 2012.

11 Of The Wildest Pieces Of Vintage Star Trek Merch

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

When people are part of a fandom, it’s not usually a hard sell to get them to purchase some sort of memorabilia. However, the Star Trek franchise is known for some wacky merch options. From light up jackets to creepy decanters, any weird merch you can think of has probably existed in the last 51 years.

Many of them are available on eBay, and if you keep an eye out, you might get still be able to find them at your local antique stores.

 

1. This light-up jacket that’s perfect for discos, conventions, SF parties and school activities

Sure, a replica of the actual Starfleet uniform is rad, but not as rad as a shiny jacket that “lights up,” “flashes” and “creates a sensation,” with the Enterprise emblazoned on the back. This 1978 official licensed jacket surely would have impressed everyone at school and at the disco.

2. An unnecessarily complicated marshmallow dispenser

Instead of just reaching your hand into a bag of marshmallows, have you ever thought, “I wish I had a dispenser for these marshmallows, that I could wear on my hip?” If so, you’ll be happy to know that as a promotional item for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier — which made a single throwaway reference to marshmallows — a marshmallow dispenser from Kraft was available for a short time in 1989. For some inexplicable reason, it came with a stumpy little fork and spoon set. You can even still find some on eBay.

3. A terrifying decanter in the shape of Spock’s bust

Due to its shape, this decanter from 1979 would be a little useless when it comes to opening the flavor of your favorite vino, but it’ll do a great job of making your friends uneasy as it stares at them from across the room with a melancholy expression. It’s a great storing spot for liquor, though.


eBay

4. Starfleet Barbie and Ken

Okay, maybe this one isn’t really that strange since Mattel is notorious for taking just about anything popular and turning it into a Barbie. Maybe you’re a collector and this 1996 set will look great with the rest of your collectibles. Or maybe you have a young daughter who also loves Star Trek and you want to torture her by giving her a set of dolls that she’s forbidden from removing from their packaging.

22 Of The Best Super Bowl Commercials Ever

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

For many, the Super Bowl means epic shootouts, defensive shutdowns and last-minute, game-on-the-line Hail Marys. For others, it’s all about another skirmish: The Battle of the Brands.

Every year, companies spend millions of dollars for just a few seconds of airtime in hopes of getting consumers attention—and then, maybe, their money. Whether funny, sad, self-referential or downright weird, Super Bowl ads have become a spectacle and tradition in their own right.

How did the commercial sideshow become as engrossing as the main event? Between the first Super Bowl in 1967 and through the mid-80s, Super Bowl commercials were generally repeats. It was Apple’s iconic 1984 commercial that turned them into a bespoke phenomenon, after which more brands started to create ads specifically for the big game.

Not that the playbook for a successful Super Bowl ad hasn’t changed. While they were once top-secret, many companies today pre-launch their ads online, or post “teasers,” to drum up attention. The average cost to air a 30-second Super Bowl spot is now $5 million, while it costs essentially nothing to upload a video to YouTube. (Of course, that excludes the cost of creating the ad itself which can range from tens of thousands of dollars to many, many millions.)

Is television in danger of pricing itself out? Analysts say not anytime soon. “The Super Bowl is still the biggest marketing event of the year in this country, by far,” says Tim Calkins, a professor of marketing and creator of the Kellogg Super Bowl Advertising Review at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Chicago. “The Super Bowl is more and more unique, as media is fragmenting, and there are more and more media properties vying for people’s attention.” In other words, there may be more and more places to see ads (of all kinds), but fewer and fewer places where a mass audience can see the same ads all at once.

Roughly 112 million people watched the Super Bowl last year, despite the NFL’s ratings decline overall. A similar number are expected to tune in to this year’s contest, between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The ads will be there. Ahead of the game, TIME ranked the most influential Super Bowl ads ever. The list—which is ordered by influence—was assembled and deliberated on at (extreme) length by TIME’s entertainment, culture and business staff.

1. “Bud Bowl I” Budweiser (1989)

For viewers tuning in to watch the ’49ers take on the Bengals back in Super Bowl XXIII, there was a nice surprise awaiting them (even more surprising than the Bengals making the Super Bowl): the Bud Bowl! What remains a cultural icon, with branding still showing up all over the internet and in print media, Bud Bowl began as a fun way to watch some stop-motion beer go head-to-head, in the ultimate battle to determine which was superior: Bud Light or Budweiser.

The ad opens with the last play of the 3rd quarter and even takes a fade-to-black break in-between quarters, before returning to a giant hand grabbing a couple beers out the fridge, bringing the game to a surprising conclusion. Who won? The thirsty viewer did, that’s who.

2. “Cindy Crawford” Pepsi (1992 & reaired in 2001)

This 1992 ad capitalized on supermodel Cindy Crawford’s sex appeal while subverting viewers’ expectations by revealing the focus to be on Pepsi’s newly redesigned can—and not on Crawford (exactly). This year marks the ad’s 25th anniversary, and still, it endures as a classic pairing of star power and marketing with a not-quite-unwholesome twist.

3. “Betty White” Snickers (2010)

Snickers’ 2010 ad spot featuring an 88-year-old Betty White laid the framework for the candy brand’s now-familiar “You’re not you when you’re hungry” campaign while becoming a viral hit in its own right. The popularity of the commercial was a testament to the five-time Emmy winner’s enduring charisma as an actress. That was only further confirmed by White’s career revival following the ad spot, included a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live and a return to the small screen with Hot in Cleveland. The Snickers campaign, meanwhile, has since featured stars like Liza Minnelli and the late Robin Williams.

4. “The Showdown” McDonalds (1993)

By playing off the famous rivalry between Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, “The Showdown” popularized the now-iconic basketball saying “nothing but net” in the middle of the biggest football game of the year. The catchphrase has become one of the most recognizable phrases in the sports world, permeating other pop culture arenas. Remakes and parodies of the original ad—including a 2010 Super Bowl spot staring LeBron James and Dwight Howard—have been cropping up ever since

5. Always — “Like a Girl”

Women make up the majority of consumers, commanding a whopping 70% to 80% of all consumer purchases. So why aren’t more advertisements made to resonate with them? That’s in part why Always’ 2015 ad for feminine care projects stole the show during a night dominated by displays of hyper-masculinity. By recasting the phrase “like a girl,” the spot made an emotional appeal for women to empower themselves, especially when it came to sports.

Join Always in our epic battle to keep girls’ confidence high during puberty and beyond. Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence. Making a start by showing them that doing things #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing! “In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand,” said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker, and director of the #LikeAGirl video. “When the words ‘like a girl’ are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine ‘like a girl’ into a positive affirmation.” So tell us… what do YOU do #LikeAGirl? For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls.

Check Your Kitchen Cabinets: Your Vintage Pyrex Glassware Could Be Worth Thousands

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

It might be time for you to clean out your cabinets, and not just to restore some order to your kitchen.

You should actually be on the lookout for a specific set of vintage Pyrex glassware that could be worth thousands of dollars!

As if Pyrex wasn’t incredible enough as it is.


EstateSales.org

Even if you don’t own any vintage Pyrex yourself, (and if you don’t, you need to change that ASAP) you should keep a sharp eye out online and at a garage or estate sales.

The patterns that are worth big bucks are the opaque, brightly colored pieces that have floral or geometric designs.

You know, exactly like the one your grandma had and used to make dinner practically every night.

If you have some vintage pieces floating around and can bear to part with them, the Pyrex-loving world will pay you handsomely for it.

People Will Pay Big Money For Pyrex

Some pieces are listed for up to $1,800 online, and single bowls are going for a whopping $900.

Coffee drinkers, this “Foulard Pyrex mug” on Etsy is selling for $700.

And since Pyrex is known for being hardy, you can still use all of these pieces (although we’d understand why you might be a little reticent).

You’ll want to try and find vintage dishes made between 1915 and 1970—these are the priciest of all the pieces.

This is because up until 1970, Pyrex used a more durable type of glass that was harder to break (although I’ve moved three times and dropped all of my Pyrex pans and bowls at least once and they’re all still in perfect condition).


Country Living Magazine

After 1970, however, the formula for the glass was changed and the dishes became more fragile.

The glassware made between 1915 and 1970 period is freezer and oven-safe, so between that and the gorgeous colors and patterns, it’s selling for tons of money.
