This Anti Selfie Stick PSA Is Actually a Pizza Hut Ad

"Please selfie responsibly"

A new Pizza Hut ad makes fun of selfie sticks to promote its rectangular “Big Flavor Dipper” pizza, which, designed for dipping, is nearly two feet long, thus “so big that it doesn’t even fit in a traditional selfie,” the chain says in a statement.

As solemn music plays in the background, a narrator questions the point of selfies and the narcissists who wield selfie sticks: “When can we say enough is enough? … After all what would we do without your daily outfit updates complete with duck face lips taken in your bathroom mirror … Please selfie responsibly.”

This PSA About a Man and His Dog Will Break Your Heart

Have tissues handy

A public service announcement for an Argentinian liver transplant foundation shows a day in the life of an elderly man and his loyal dog. One night, the man appears to have a medical emergency and is taken to the hospital. The dog follows him there and is left to wander outside of the building. After what seems like hours, a woman in a wheelchair leaves the hospital, and the dog races up to her. The implication is that its owner, an organ donor, saved her life.

This Is Michelle Obama’s Workout Routine

Get a closer look at the First Lady's fitness regimen

Michelle Obama released a video of her workout routine to inspire Americans to exercise regularly as part of the #GimmeFive challenge, which celebrates the fifth anniversary of the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign to raise awareness about healthy living in the United States. The video is a response to a good-natured challenge posted by her husband, President Obama, on Twitter last week. It’s also reminiscent of an Instagram video that her friend Beyoncé released of her own exercise regimen.

In the video, you will see Obama lifting weights, jump-roping and boxing, but it looks like dancing is not part of her regular routine.

These 4 Clouded Leopard Cubs Weigh Less Than a Box of Cereal

The tiny quadruplets were born last week

The Port Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Wash., has posted a video of zookeepers feeding four clouded leopard quadruplets that were born last week to mother Chai Li and father Nah Fun.

The cubs, which are not on view to the public yet, spend most of their time eating, with two-hour meal times taking place every three hours. The largest weighs about as much as a box of Corn Flakes, the zoo said in a statement.

Native to Southeast Asia, clouded leopards are endangered. They’re only bred by about two dozen accredited zoos in North America, so Chai Li giving birth to a litter of four cubs is a rare event, zoo curator Karen Goodrowe Beck said in a statement.

It's the latest tourist attraction to crack down on use of the phone accessory

It’s a small world, and Disney World says there is no room for selfie sticks on rides anymore.

Now there is a “No Selfie Sticks” sign at Magic Kingdom’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, similar to policies recently implemented at Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland in California. A spokesperson for the theme park told the Orlando Sentinel that the accessories could be brought onboard but must be stored.

The theme park is the latest tourist attraction to ban selfie sticks, from museums worldwide such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art to sporting events like the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

This Baby Tried Avocado for the First Time and Made the Best Face

Her eyes say everything

We have two theories about why this baby girl has a hilarious, wide-eyed, horrified look on her face in this clip. Maybe she finds the taste and consistency of avocado repulsive after trying it for the first time, which is what the description of the video on YouTube says. Or maybe she is horrified that her parents would film her while her face is covered in food and then share it on the Internet where it will be online forever.
