Dominos Has a 50 Shades of Grey-Themed Pizza Ad and You’re Welcome


If you’re not already a little worried about Fifty Shades of Grey being weird on your career, Dakota Johnson, take a gander at this Domino’s story…

For like, two seconds  Domino’s had a ridiculous ad for Sriracha pizza that surfaced online Tuesday. The ad, which purportedly appeared in print in Israel, features a tongue tied up and ball-gagged, with a VO that is demanding the tongue to “suffer and enjoy every moment.”

Of course, everyone’s like WTF is this AND is it real? The answer? Yes.

“It’s real,” company spokesman Tim McIntyre tells PEOPLE. “The ad was created and pitched by an agency to the independent franchise in Israel.”

The catch? It never ran in print – or anywhere for that matter.

“It never ‘officially’ appeared anywhere, because it was ill-advised, unfunny and not brand-appropriate,” McIntyre adds. “In a word, it was stupid.”

The ad only surfaced online because it was leaked. Now it’s “being presented as something that actually ran in Israeli media,” McIntyre explains. “It did not.”

The spokesman admits that even he thought it was a joke when he learned of the risqué ad. “When I first saw it myself, I thought it was a parody, just in time for the premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey,” he says. “I’m still shaking my head.”

Couldn’t find the commercial, but the print ad is almost as stupid. Check it out HERE.  Man, I can’t wait for all this Fifty Shades of Grey stuff to calm down, so people can go back to NOT BEING INSANE.

50 Shades of Grey Is the Fastest Selling Title in Fandango History

Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson Film A Night Scene On The Set Of 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

Are you ready, world? Fandango says you ARE.

Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t open for nearly a month, but is already the fastest selling R-rated title in Fandango history!

So what does that mean? Variety says it means that the adaptation of E.L. James’ steamy best-seller is selling OUT, and FAST. The film has supplanted “Sex and the City 2″ for the honor of having the most ticket sales on Fandango for a non-sequel film since the first “Hunger Games” movie in 2012. It’s also outpacing other R-rated hits such as the second and third “Hangover” films and “Gone Girl.”

It’s getting so crazy that the demand is causing theater owners in all fifty states to offer new showtimes.

This is also pretty interesting because, according to Variety, sexually charged films haven’t been in vogue since “Basic Instinct” and “Fatal Attraction,” so the film was still risky for Universal to back. To that end, the studio seems to be emphasizing the love story elements of the story in its promotional materials.

Are you gonna see it? Opening day (Feb 13th) is coming FAST!

Q: Who Pays 25K For Two Tiny Dogs? A: Paris Hilton.

Paris Hilton DJs At Bonbonniere Nightclub In London

For Paris Hilton, only the smallest dogs with the biggest price tags will do!

Paris just paid 25K for 2 Pomeranians and accessorizing bling at Betty’s Teacup Yorkies in Canada- one for herself and one for mom Kathy Hilton as a 35th Anniversary gift.

So how tiny does a hefty 25K price tag get you? TMZ reports that Paris’ 3-month-old dog weighs in at 6 oz. while Kathy’s 6-month-old weighs 12 oz.

Maybe this is a tiny friend for the pomeranian she bought in September? At $13K, that first little guy was a STEAL.

Check out pics of these little tiny dogs (if you can call them that) HERE.

Laverne Cox Received A Christmas Card From Beyonce!

This gesture must have made Laverne Cox‘s YEAR!

The Orange Is the New Black star got one special Christmas gift this week from none other than Beyonce Knowles, sharing this photo via Instagram on Friday,  of the holiday present that was sent by Queen Bey. The multi-pic shot features a note reading, “HAPPY HOLIDAYS Love Beyonce,” a green sweatshirt emblazoned with the “Partition” lyrics “cake by the pound,” and a shot of the singer in a Christmas sweater.

According to Us Weekly, the actress was absolutely beside herself!

“When I opened this holiday card a few days ago and read Love @beyonce I literally fell to the floor,” Cox captioned the image. “I was on the floor of my apartment. I have witnesses. Love the #CakeByThePound sweatshirt. Thanks Bey for the gift. I have had an awesome year and this is certainly a highlight.”

“Happy holidays Mrs. Carter to you and your beautiful family,” continued the star, who appeared on the cover of Time magazine’s “The Transgender Turning Point” issue. “Thanks for all the amazing music and endless inspiration you’ve given to me and so many over the past 16 years. Since No No No I have been saying YASSS YASSS YASSS! #QueenBey foever.”

Cox has voiced her admiration for Beyonce in the past, telling the New York Daily News this past June, “I live for Beyonce, I live for Jay Z less, but I live for Beyonce.”
