Arby's Halo

So there I was, having just taken a 3-4 minute power nap, when I wake up and see some guy with an Arby's Hat halo of his head. I wanted to take this picture to prove to myself later that I didn't see anything, but the camera proves that either I am still hallucinating, or that this guy really did have a transparent halo of a red Arby's Roast Beef fast food restaurant over his head, just like in the Arby's commercials. It had parallax and everything. Sadly, I was too groggy to get up the nerve to get close to the guy.

I swear on my life this is no photochop.

How to rehash an old toy... How to rehash an old toy...

You have to admit, once you get over the "small ball becomes BIG ball Hobie Sphere" concept, it's pretty boring. Plus, handling the ball becomes irritating because if you pick it up wrong, it expands like a balloon net, and knocks stuff over around you. It's too tall to hang on the ceiling unless you have really high ceilings, and so it lies on your closet floor, probably slightly broken, looking like a deranged clown sea urchin.

I guess the toymakers thought the toy needed sprucing up, too, but I don't know who came up with the concept here to add DJ sound effects to it. The batteries were already dead in "demo mode" at this display, so I have no idea if it sounded cool or not.
