Just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder than #Sproutcore, the depths of the internet have produced yet another bizarre trend.

We apparently have New Zealand to thank for this one – a bunch of Kiwi mates decided to try and outdo each other for who could resemble a frozen chicken the most.

• #Sproutcore is an actual trend in China
Kardashian’s ridiculous car makeover
• Emma Stone licks people, loses the plot in new video

A tribute to Turnbull’s ties

No matter your political persuasion or your thoughts on Australia’s new prime minister, there’s no doubt something major has changed since the Lib Spill.

Gone are Tony Abbott’s plain blue ties, replaced by a veritable rainbow flowing off the neck of Malcolm Turnbull.

The most romantic chewing gum ad ever

There are many things people associate with chewing gum. Fresh breath, for one. Annoying chewing noises, for another.

But romance? Not so much.

Extra is trying to change that with their latest American commercial that tells the story of a couple’s relationship over time.

Perhaps it’s the extremely likeable actors, the heartwarming version of ‘I can’t help falling in love with you’ – whatever it is, this ad is making people around the world all bleary-eyed and emotional.

Don’t believe us? Refer to the below.

Don Draper has to be behind this, there can be no other explanation.
