As they say, ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer. And the Internet knows too well how strongly beauty pageants believe in this formula.

Just check out the classic viral video from 2007 of Miss Teen USA from South Carolina having a complete mental break down after being asked a stupid question. 

Now, a new Miss beauty has made a splash online for her foolish answer after her embarrassing clip was posted on YouTube by Guyism

Appropriately, it was ‘celebrity‘ Nene Leakes to ask Miss Utah the completely meaningless and loaded question, “In 40% of families with kids, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?”

Miss Utah Marissa Powell thought a bit and then let out,“I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are continuing to try to strive to … figure out how to create jobs…”

From there, she only dug her graver deeper and deeper. With a question like that, can you really blame her?

Music videos and marketing continue to meld. As we have seen before, more artists are turning from simply featuring a product, such as a smartphone or watch, in their music videos to dedicating entire songs to advertising.

Pop superstar Usher is the latest artist to follow this trend.

He and Samsung Televisions collaborated to create this ‘Looking 4 Myself’ music video which showcases the new South Korean motion controlled TV’s from Samsung, as well as Usher participating in some epic Matrix-inspired fighting.

Most people don’t realize, but there are still countless people who have no access to the Internet. Google wants to help fix this problem with their latest project, Project Loon

The concept is to create a network of high altitude balloons for data sharing in areas that fiber optic cables just aren’t cost effective. Using the Stratosphere’s consistent wind patterns, the balloons can be ‘steered’ per say into the the correct positioning. 

Users simply use a special Internet antenna to connect and ‘talk’ to the balloons in the sky, which in turn talk to other balloons, which talk to an Internet service provider.

Last week, San Antonio native Sebastian De La Cruz sang the Star Spangled Banner at the third game of the NBA Finals. Even though he did a great job, he was hit by a wave of negative press online.

His story quickly went viral, and now the news report covering him has over 3.4 million views

To show their support, the NBA invited Sebastian back to sing the National Anthem at Game 4. His most recent performance has gone viral as well, and already stands with over 1.75 million views.

Us Yanks can’t help but be entertained by the cliche sports announcers from across the pond. Especially because the game of cricket is preferred by most redcoats, their coverage of baseball just doesn’t sound right.

Anthony Richardson and TheExplodingHeads take this concept to the Nth degree in Bad British Baseball Commentary, where a mock British announcer tries his British best to report on a Red Sox-Yankees game. 

Just over the weekend, the humorous video has been seen over 400,000 times
