"The DUB Magazine Project" on MTV2 has a running four-wheeler competition. Each week a different celebrity attempts to beat the best time around the Dirtball Challenge Track on a Kawasaki ATV. So far mini actor Vern Troyer and skinny rapper Big Sean are respectively first and second with times of 1:08 and 1:09. On this week's episode, the dance/rap group Rej3ctz got a shot at the challenge. Bounce, Mowii and Pee Wee seemingly had an advantage. Since they're a trio, they would each get a shot at posting the best time.
From the get-go, "The Cat Daddy" creators seem cocky about their chances. Wouldn't you be too if you spawned a dance with more than 40 million online views? Or as Mowii puts it: "We created a whole dance that took over the whole world with a song to go along with it." Of course, why wouldn't their ATV driving skills be fly? Well, their advantage turned into a disadvantage. Bounce posted a respectable 1:09 time after almost tipping his four-wheeler, but Pee Wee bested it by actually tipping his during his run. That disqualified The Rej3ctz and Mowii didn't even get a shot. Awww.
Tired of the same boring condoms? Want to add some style to your Apple electronics, or put the confidence and cool demeanor into your pasta sauce?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then this line of swagified products will be perfect for you. Back in 2009, SwagCo Founder, CEO and Big-Swingin'-D*** In Chief Leo Smizzley was preparing his date a lovely Italian dinner before a certain sexual encounter. All he had in his pad was a bottle of lifeless, unconfident Ragu. Leo's date was unimpressed. Leo managed to charm the pants off his company anyway, but as he looked at a full pack of Magnums (being very well endowed, there aren't many contraceptive choices for the SwagCo boss), he fancied how much more arousing the experience would be if the condom had a diamond tip.
So after Leo kicked the young lass out of his place, he got to work swagifying some of Americans' most essential products, and SwagCo was born. Among others, Leo & Co. have already swagified condoms, pasta sauce, Apple electronics, vitamins, Powerbars and the Snuggie. If you're sick of the same old, like Leo was, come browse some of SwagCo's best sellers and add some swag to your life.

In case you hadn't already figured it out based on the amount of dad-related material on Clutch lately, Sunday is Father's Day. And because you're like us, you probably put off figuring out just what you're going to buy the old man this year until now. As usual, we're here to help, partly because we like you but mostly because putting together a Father's Day Gift Guide lets us waste a couple of work days looking at cool crap we'd otherwise buy for ourselves. Furthermore, we've done you the favor of categorizing each of our picks by what type of dad you should buy each for. Not a tie, cufflinks or "World's Best Dad" mug in sight. Couldn't have made it any simpler for you. So, this weekend when your dad thanks you, so moved by your thoughtful gesture that tears are brought to his eyes, remember who he should really be thanking: us.
Earlier this month the Clutch team was with Tennessee Titan running back Chris Johnson talking about all things style in his hometown of Orlando, Florida. It's where you can usually find Johnson whenever he's not on the field ducking defenders, island-hopping with his crew or out popping bottles with his tattoo twin Lil Wayne.
But judging by how spare the decorations were in his off-season pad, we're thinking that Chris and his entourage spend more time out being entertained than actually entertaining. That, or Johnson's still waiting on the delivery of a lime green living room set to match his custom Chevy.
Team Johnson were gracious hosts, though, and a few other players even stopped by to watch.
With the recent onslaught of kick-ass first-person shooters hitting the shelves, you're going to want the right firepower on your arm. Here's your guide to the best five video game guns from this latest generation of first-person shooters.
Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z just launched Life + Times -- a blog to instruct playas on how to live. Anxious to live the Hova life (and marry Beyoncé), we dove into the website’s advice. It’s quickly apparent that to live Z life, you need benjamins (maybe something like Jay’s 500 millie). Check the price tags from Life + Times’ choice nuggets.
1. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak--$15,000
A $15,000 watch better be “iconic” (as the article promises). Upon its introduction in 1972, the watch cost $3,200 compared to the $270 Rolex Submariner. We couldn’t even afford an Audemars Piguet if we went back in time 40 years.
2. The Rolls Royce Ghost--$245,000
The “Presence” of the Ghost has everything you’d expect a car with a price tag of $245,000 to have, except for Beyoncé.
3. Tasty food made by celebrity chef Daniel Boulud–-$110 for the prix fixe (that’s French for “without the booze”) Boulud owns multiple multi-star restaurants in New York, including the super-posh, 3-star Daniel. The interview mentions DB’s somewhat affordable Vermont hot dog, but those on a budget will still need to miss a meal to afford it.
