Ariel got some hot video of Ke$shaha talking about her sexy new Baby-G line! They come in red, white, and blue! And animal print! She wants Dave Grohl to wear her watch! Also Obama! What a great spokesperson!

Watch that video: excellent stuff, right? Everyone loves sharks and watches and dudes in wetsuits. You figure “OK, this is a watch ad, maybe it’s a bit of adventure, some deep sea diving, fine. I’ll watch.” Then you realize it’s some dude in a cage feeding a shark. The last time I cared about that little interaction was when I was about 10 watching 3-2-1 Contact on PBS. But wait, there’s more!
Golf legend Greg Norman has long been known as the Great White Shark due to his blond hair, his fearlessness on the course and his aggressive playing style. The OMEGA ambassador recently ventured to North Neptune Island for a close encounter with the other great white shark — the one of Jaws fame. This video documents their historic underwater meeting.

This, sadly, is what amounts to news to most watch companies. Don’t get me wrong: I love Hublot. When/if I’m rich I’ll buy a Big Bang. But look at that: Usain Bolt cutting a ribbon with two other people. That’s not news, that’s some strange sense that Hublot can become as famous as Usain Bolt by associating his ribbon cutting skills with the brand.

Seriously: who buys this junk?

With a name like Pineapple and a trade dress that looks like an iPod nano with the clip cut off, you can tell the gents behind Pineapple watches aren’t very well-versed on trademark law. But lets, for a moment, pretend it won’t be a problem.

How much would you pay for an Android phone? $99? $199? Maybe $299 with contract?
How about $50,000. As you recall, the Ulysse Nardin Chairman is a freaking $50,000 phone. It’s only in beta right now, but it will run Android 2.1 and come in multiple styles including a model covered with diamonds. The box, as you’ll see in the video, is nutso too. It’s basically a dock with speakers and a USB port.
The phone is made for the ultrarich. As the charming young lady who showed it to us explained, it’s for folks who can’t bring their Ferraris into the club and need something equally ostentatious.
