BECAUSE 1 TRUMP ISN’T ENOUGH

If you laugh at the real deal, you can sure laugh at the impersonator. John Di Domenico has spent 13 years perfecting Trump’s every brain fart, so no wonder he is now the highest paid fake Trump out there. Wonder how he does it? Take a sneak peek behind the scenes…

Granny and Grandad Get Kinky

Isn’t it strange that the older generation are never perceived as sexual, as if they don’t have sex. Well, they do, and it’s about time we celebrated that. British photographer and film-maker Rankin directed this erotic ‘S&X’ fragrance ad, and it’s hot stuff. Prepare to get steamy.

BED A RAPPER

Always wanted to get into bed with Drake? Well now you can, for the small fee of $75. Soft Ass Rappers are making dreams come true everywhere, with the reveal of huggable cushions in the shape of your favourite rappers. The line-up includes Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Gucci Mane (for those who like a bad boy). That’s straight on the Christmas wish list.

BAZ LUHRMANN FOR ERDEM X H&M

In celebration of the upcoming ERDEM X H&M collection, Baz Luhrmann directed a stunning, cinematic short film full of glamour and debauchery. The narrative explores a magnetic love triangle, starring upcoming actors Tom Rhys Harries, Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Ruby Dagnall and it’s set in a gorgeous country mansion where it’s ‘always spring’. The film debuts an exclusive new track by Years & Years, appropriately named ‘Hypnotised’ which is what you’ll be when you watch this piece of art.

PEOPLE MATCHING ARTWORKS

Stefan Draschan has the patience of a saint. He is the genius who frequents art galleries, waiting for the perfect moment when an unknowing individual idles along and blends in seamlessly with the artwork they are admiring. It might be their hair, their posture or their dress, any parallel Draschan can draw. He captures the moment and the result is a wonderful collection of images making art out of art.

GET DATA SAVVY

When it comes to data privacy, most people don’t have a clue. Mozilla and Tactical Tech have taken the issue into their own hands by launching The Glass Room to help people get to grips with the data that they are unknowingly giving away.  A selection of tech-forward artists have developed interactive elements that users can engage with to better understand their digital footprint. It has to be more fun than reading the T&Cs, surely?
