Pandamonium

What do you call a group of pandas? It’s not a joke from an ice-lolly stick (although feel free to send witty answers on the back of a postcard). The answer is, there isn’t an answer. Pandas don’t have a collective noun because they’re rarely spotted together. Until now.

Winning in a winter wonderland

Real athletes aren’t put off by rain. Or hail. Or even four foot of slushy snow. Making the rest of us feel like wimps, Nike’s latest campaign pits leading US athletes against their toughest competition yet: the weather.

Playboy is attempting to reach a younger audience and ‘re-assert itself into American youth culture’ through a series of specially-commissioned art projects.

The first is a giant installation by the side of a road in Texas. Designed by Richard Phillips, it features the Playboy bunny hovering above a black Dodge Charger on a concrete plinth. By contrasting the Texas landscape with an iconic car, the piece is intended to ‘capture the spirit of Playboy in its heyday’.
