Bar Refaeli is no stranger to showing off her sexy side in a playful and adolescent type of way. Last year, Bar got a bit physical by kissing a chunky and nerdy teenage guy in Go Daddy’s 2013 Super Bowl commercial staring NASCAR driver Danica Patrick. Just a week ago, her racy Hoodies commercial where she is laying in bed naked with a puppet was banned from daytime TV for being too sexy. Now, she’s posing with birthday cakes and loliipops in some new colorful Ads for lingerie brand Passionata spring-summer 2014 campaign. Bar Refaeli definitely seems to like like it fun, flirty and kid-like. Would you agree?

Black Cow Pure Milk Vodkahttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/04/01/black-cow-pure-milk-vodka/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/04/01/black-cow-pure-milk-vodka/#comments Tue, 01 Apr 2014 14:38:28 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21357 black cow milk vodka

“Black Cow Milk” has to be the coolest name for a Vodka. It looks like vodka and supposedly taste like vodka, but it’s black cow milk vodka. This crystal clear premium vodka is said to be made entirely from the milk of grass grazed cows and the world’s only pure milk vodka. We spotted this over at Man of Many and we definitely want to try some. Either we have vodka on the mind or the name and the packaging is intriguing. What do you think? Would you be interested in trying some pure cow milk vodka? Available via www.blackcow.co.uk.

To commemorate this amazing milestone, April has been official named Batman Month by DC Comics on DCComics.com. Last week, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment also announced a year-long anniversary celebration honoring Batman’s 75th year and worldwide entertainment legacy.

Beginning today, DCComics.com will showcase at least one cool Batman feature on their homepage and on Batman75.com for the entire month of April. Warner Bros.

Highlights of the anniversary program include a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists’ interpretation of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight videogame.

Watch: New ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Teaser [Video]http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/31/watch-new-dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-teaser-video/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/31/watch-new-dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-teaser-video/#comments Mon, 31 Mar 2014 14:18:36 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21345 planet of the apes caesar

Who else is hyped for the return of the apes? Hollywood is preparing for one helluva summer with the release of some major thrillers including The Purge: Anarchy, Transformers: Age Of Extinction Character Posters, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Admittedly, there are several movies that have peaked our interest, but none like the new installment of the Planet of the Apes. The ending of the remake of Planet of the Apes set-up the perfect storyline for the next installment and after getting a glimpse of what’s to come, we were left saying, oh boy Caesar.

Official Synopsis

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier.

They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Can you say Caesar takeover? If you are curious to know how the virus got started, check out the video below.

Valvoline Reinvention Project And Engine Builders’ Boot Camphttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/valvoline-engine-builders-boot-camp-reinvention-project/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/valvoline-engine-builders-boot-camp-reinvention-project/#comments Thu, 27 Mar 2014 22:24:23 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21222 hendrick motorsports valvoline engine build 3

When we started Mankind Unplugged, we never would have imagined that we’d talk about topics like building an engine. After all, we are girls – we thought we would tell you guys about what we know best – namely fashion, relationship advice, and a bit of offbeat news. But, thanks to Valvoline, we were given an all-access look at the new Valvoline Reinvention Project. We even learned a little about building an engine at Hendrick Motorsports Facilities in Concord, NC. Hendrick Performance is one of the country’s most renowned facilities in racing. Utilizing the best restoration equipment, mechanics, specialists, and cutting-edge machinery, Hendrick is well known for building state-of-the-art custom vehicles.

hendrick motorsports valvoline engine build 2

Valvoline was partnered with the Hendrick Motorsports team from 1993 to ’95, when they won their first Cup championship with legendary driver Jeff Gordon behind the wheel. Through 2017, Valvoline will again be the official lubricant for the team’s racing cars in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Sprint Cup drivers and Hendrick teammates Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Jimmie Johnson, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., will serve as spokespeople to promote the petrol product. To celebrate rekindling their relationship with one of NASCAR’s most revered teams, Valvoline invited us for a first look at the two classic Chevy trucks transformed by Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

VIDEO: Valvoline Reinvention Project

Jimmie and Dale Jr. have worked with Valvoline behind the scenes to reinvent the two trucks. In a first-of-its-kind consumer challenge called the Reinvention Project, participants are able to select parts hand-picked by drivers via a virtual garage hosted at www.ReinventionProject.com. At the website, car lovers can reinvent the trucks online for a chance to win the grand prize – a custom-built Hendrick Performance Shop Truck.

Before we impressed everyone with our DIY skills in Valvoline’s Engine Builders’ Boot Camp, we attended the Reinvention Project truck big reveal. The trucks were unveiled to us before Jimmie and Dale Jr. even saw the finished products. Fans have the opportunity to get in on the action until March 31, 2014, so you can still guess what the guys used to turn their trucks into high-performance vehicles. We can’t reveal what the trucks look like, but we can tell you that they are awesome! Not only do they look great, the engines sound incredible. We were afforded an opportunity to do truck ride-alongs at the Zmax Dragway at Charlotte Motor Speedway before Jimmie and Dale Jr. jumped behind the wheels of their reinvented trucks for a challenge and commercial shoot with Valvoline. Oh yeah, did we mention we also had a chance to interview the guys?

hendrick motorsports valvoline reinvention project 4

As NASCAR fans and car enthusiasts, the chance to go behind the scenes at the 100-plus-acre, world-class Hendrick Performance Complex was surreal. Learning about building an engine side-by-side with guys who helped build powerful NASCAR engines was an honor and a privilege. Hendrick’s engine shop supplies engines to 11 NASCAR Sprint Cup teams, 5 teams in the Nationwide series, and 2 Camping Truck outfits. While we were there, we built a Chevrolet R07.2 engine with the help of Hendrick master technicians who were impressed with our skills in the shop. As one tech said, “You know your way around some tools.”

Valvoline has reinvented motor oil for over 140 years, making them the perfect partner for Hendrick Motorsports – one of the most dominant forces in the sports on and off the track. For more information about Valvoline’s Reinvention Project, make sure to visit www.ReinventionProject.com and Valvoline.com. To keep up will all the action on social media, follow the hashtags #Valvoline, #TeamJimmie, and #TeamDaleJr. Check back with us once the Reinvention Project contest ends on March 31st to see our exclusive photos of souped-up trucks and read our interviews with Mr. 6x Jimmie Johnson and NASCAR’s most popular driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Reviewing The Papago P2 Pro Dashcamhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/reviewing-the-papago-p2-pro-dashcam/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/reviewing-the-papago-p2-pro-dashcam/#comments Thu, 27 Mar 2014 14:40:41 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21301 papago p2 dashcam

From time to time Mankind Unplugged is asked to review some rather cool gadgets. After seeing how excited our good friend Sujeet over at Guys Gab was when discussing this new cool dashcam we received, we decided to let him give it a test run. Below is what Sujeet had to say about the Papago P2 Pro Dashcam.

Last year, a meteor crashed in Russia, and many people wondered how we got so many great videos of that random event? It turns out that there’s so much corruption over there in the courts and in law enforcement in particular that the only way for citizens to protect themselves against false charges or claims of liability is to have proof. Hence everybody has dashcams in their cars.

Dashcams range in price and quality, and it’s one of those areas where “you get what you pay for”. So when I decided to get a dashcam for myself, my research led me to the Papago P2 Pro Dashcam. This bad boy records Full HD 1080P at 30FPS, ensuring that the footage you capture is of the highest quality. And if you’d prefer to record longer at a slightly lower resolution, you can set the dashcam to record at 720P @ 60GPS or 30FPS.

The P2 Pro’s wide 130-degree viewing angle makes sure that you don’t miss a thing. It also supports cycle recording, which allows old files to be automatically replaced with new files. After all, if you’re recording footage for your own protection, and you have an uneventful drive to work, why would you want to save that?

Parents might be drawn to the P2 Pro’s numerous active car safety features, including LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) and FCWS (Front Collision Warning System), as well as a Driver Fatigue Alarm. If you’ve got a teenage driver in the family, it might be worth getting this dashcam for these features alone! And don’t forget, you can also watch the footage it captures so you can keep track of their driving habits. icon smile

papago p2 dashcam 3

But safety and liability protection aren’t the only reasons to get the Papago P2 Pro. Lets say you’re doing a track day and you want to capture some footage as you maneuver your car around the track like Michael Schumacher. The P2 Pro not only captures your awesome driving skills for all to see, but the built-in GPS can also display your speed on the video it captures, so you can see just how fast you were going on that straightaway, and how much speed you were losing in the corners. Now THAT is freaking cool!

Overall, I was really impressed with the Papago P2 Pro Dashcam. It comes jam packed with features, and it delivers on all fronts. While the MSRP of $249.99 might seem a little steep to some, I think it’s well worth the asking price. Try it out for yourself, and you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without one!

Sights & Scenes From The Garage And Pit Road At NASCAR’s Auto Club 400 In Fontana [75 Photos]http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/sights-scenes-from-the-garage-and-pit-road-at-nascars-auto-club-400-in-fontana-75-photos/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/27/sights-scenes-from-the-garage-and-pit-road-at-nascars-auto-club-400-in-fontana-75-photos/#comments Thu, 27 Mar 2014 13:59:34 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21217 NASCAR Auto Club 400 Photos

As soon as NASCAR released their 2014 schedule, I marked my calendar. Although I have been to my fair share of NASCAR races, it would be my first time at my home track, the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. Fontana is a far cry from Hollywood, but that didn’t stop some notable athletes and entertainers (or me) from making the hour-long drive from Los Angeles to hang out with NASCAR’s best. Well-known celebrities in attendance included Actor Terry Crews (Expendables, Everybody Hates Chris, Old Spice Commercials), Anthony Anderson, Flex Alexander, Asher Roth, Jenny Johnson, and former WWE and WCW star Bill Goldberg.

Billy Ray Cyrus –nowadays well known as Miley’s dad– also delighted fans as he hit the main stage for a pre-race concert. If that wasn’t enough, The Great Gonzo from the legendary Muppets crew graced the track with his presence. Former NFL quarterback now FOX Sports Live analyst Donovan McNabb made an appearance at the track as well. If you recall, Donovan stirred up controversy with NASCAR nation when he said he didn’t consider Jimmie Johnson an athlete. When asked about this, he said he was sticking to his story.

NASCAR Auto Club 400 Fontana 55

After I checked out all the famous folks during the pre-race action and walked the grid before the engines fired, I staked out a spot on pit road. Thanks to the good folks over at Valvoline, along with the help of NASCAR, I was able to score a hot pass to the sold-out race. If you aren’t familiar with a hot pass, having one affords you the opportunity to hang out in the garages before the race and on pit road during the race. As I made my way down pit road, I observed a rather cool dude in Dale Jr.’s pit guzzling one of the new Mtn Dew Kickstart shortly after the race started. It was at this moment I realized it would be interesting to observe what most of these guys do during the race, which can span hours. As I walked up and down pit road, I paid attention to how people passed the free time during the race. Don’t get me wrong, these guys work hard. But during the down-time, it seems everyone has his own way of enjoying the NASCAR action. Check out my photos, which capture a behind-the-scenes look at life around the Auto Club Speedway.

Wondering who won the race? Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 Toyota, won at Fontana for the second straight year holding off his brother Kurt Busch and rookie racer Kyle Larson. Larson had his big day Saturday, when he won the TreatMyClot.com 300 Nationwide Series race and saw victory lane for the first time in his career.

STARZ Original Series “Power” Executive Produced By Curtis “50 Cent” Jacksonhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/25/starz-original-series-power-executive-produced-by-curtis-50-cent-jackson/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/25/starz-original-series-power-executive-produced-by-curtis-50-cent-jackson/#comments Tue, 25 Mar 2014 17:42:03 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21192 STARZ Original Series Power Executive Produced By 50 Cent 1

Calling 50 Cent a rapper would be remiss. Whether he’s involved in flavored water deals, acting, or showing up at NASCAR races pushing headphones, one would be foolish not to recognize that this guy has just a bit of power. As if acting wasn’t enough, 50 Cent is flexing that power as Executive Producer of a STARZ Original Series show appropriately titled “Power.” The show which was created by Courtney Kemp Agboh (The Good Wife) is a visionary crime drama set in two different worlds – the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade. 50 will have a recurring role of Kanan, an old friend of the main charector James “Ghost” St. Patrick’s played by Omari Hardwick. Other cast members include Lela Loren, Joseph Sikora, and Naturi Naughton who will play the role of Ghost’s wife and confidant, Tasha St. Patrick. Naughton is best known for her role as Lil’ Kim in the biopic film Notorious about the life and murder of The Notorious B.I.G. After watching the trailer we were hooked (no pun intended). Check it out and let us know what you think.

It’s a front for Ghost’s criminal underworld; a lucrative drug network serving only the wealthy and powerful.

James Harden’s Beard Illustratedhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/24/james-hardens-beard-illustrated/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/24/james-hardens-beard-illustrated/#comments Mon, 24 Mar 2014 15:38:27 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21152 James Harden Illustrated Splashy

There’s a website for that. Croatia designer/illustrator Filip Peraić took his love for NBA baller James Harden’s beard to a new level by creating a host of illustrations profiling the breaded one’s facial hair through various mediums and styles. He considers his illustrations of Harden’s beard to be a personal project to sharpen his creativity. “This experiment is like training ground for a creative mind” and that the “project is about avoid enslaving an expression to one style/concept,” he said. We believe it’s a bit creepy, but genius. Who wouldn’t want to see all the possibilities of Jame’s Harden’s beard?

If you are asking yourself why he chose James Harden’s bread the answer is simple. According to the designer he has a unique and awesome beard. To his credit, Filip Peraić has worked with some major brands including IBM, Mercedes Benz, WIRED, Fly Emirates, and ESPN.

When you think of soap the color brown and the scent of ceder as well as tobacco isn’t exactly what comes to mind. If you are a hard working guy who likes your soap endowed with mainly rugged aromas, there’s a soap specifically made for you called “Worker’s Soap.” With the rich aromas of tobacco oil and patchouli mixed with cedar, Hudson Made Worker’s Soap is made with coconut, jojoba, hempseed and vitamin E oils to nourish and moisturize the skin. After a long day’s work if you are looking for a tough scrub that will stimulate the skin, invigorate your senses, and still leave your hands soft, you may want to try this soap. It’s not only a hand soap; it’s also suited for scrubbing tough spots like elbows and feet.

“Girl In A Ferrari” Speed Stick® GEAR UP Challengehttp://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/18/girl-in-a-ferrari-speed-stick-gear-up-challenge/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2014/03/18/girl-in-a-ferrari-speed-stick-gear-up-challenge/#comments Tue, 18 Mar 2014 17:37:51 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=21112 gear up challenge car drive

We were asked to put new Speed Stick® GEAR™ to the test – a super extreme sweat test. We call it our “Girl In A Ferrari Test.”

We were invited to take on an ultimate adventure with Speed Stick® GEAR™, and we accepted the challenge. The challenge was simple. We picked an extreme sweat-inducing adventure to test the brand-new Speed Stick® GEAR™ line of antiperspirants and deodorants. How would the products perform during high-tension situations and adrenaline-pumping action? To find out, we wore the men’s deodorant to test drive a Ferrari.

speed stick gear deodorant antiperspirant

Speed Stick arranged for us to take on a challenge of our choice and, of course, we chose to push the pedal to the metal at the Auto Club Speedway to test drive the Ferrari F430 F1. Speed Stick® GEAR’s Dry Core absorption technology was designed to help men stay dry, but we figured it would be worth recommending to our readers if it could keep a woman dry while driving one of the world’s fastest cars. Just to make sure, we let ManJr.com tag along with us for a man’s opinion as well as for bragging rights. But the girl behind the wheel of an exotic car is really the boss.

READ: Interview: NASCAR Rookie Driver Cole Whitt Talks Daytona 500, 50 Cent, Dale Jr., Speed Stick GEAR, And His Mount Rushmore of NASCAR Drivers

We arrived at the track equipped with everything we needed for our challenge: Deodorant, heart rate monitor, and a GoPro Hero3+ to capture the moment. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly staff at Exotic Racing and given an overview on safety and what we could expect on the track. It was raining a bit, so things were slightly cooled off until we got behind the wheel. With the motor revving and hearts racing, things heated up pretty quickly. If you have never been behind the wheel of a world-class machine like the Ferrari, all we can say is that hearing the sound of one of the best sports cars ever made gives you an indescribable feeling.

Ferrari

We experienced the incredible power and handling of the Ferrari, but admittedly, we are sure we would have burned more rubber if it weren’t for our private instructor keeping us in check at every turn. Like Speed Stick®, women were engineered for advanced performance (in our minds), so the thought of a man telling us what to do was beyond us. Even still, heart rates rose as we rode around the track, but the only noticeable aroma was that clean new-car scent. Since the deodorant did its job and kept us dry, the Girl in a Ferrari challenge was no sweat.

Oh, and if you were wondering what happened on the track between Mankind Unplugged and Man Jr.,… well, let’s just say we showed Jr. a thing or two. For our avid readers, you know that we are big NASCAR fans, so the opportunity to try Speed Stick® on the Speedway was right up our alley. Thanks to Speed Stick® GEAR™, we stayed calm, cool, and very collected.

If you are up for the challenge, why not GEAR UP and take your own Speed Stick Challenge? Speed Stick® GEAR™ comes in 9 options, including 3 Antiperspirants (Fresh Force, Clean Peak, and Cool Motion), 1 Antiperspirant Gel (Fresh Force), 2 deodorants (Fresh Force, Clean Peak), 2 deodorant sprays (Fresh Force and Clean Peak), and the recently introduced Irish Spring GEAR.

Because you wanted to know, Thrillest.com decided to provide a breakdown of all the Victoria’s Secret models by nationality and appearance year. If you are anything like us, you probably assumed all the Vicky models were from Brazil, right? It sure seems that way, but unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you view it, this is not the case.

There have been a total of 295 Victoria’s Secret models over the years with a whopping majority of the models hailing from the good old USA. 81 of your all-time favorites are from the US, 32 from Brazil and 14 from Australia. The rest of the models are from all over the world including Russia, Canada, Denmark, and Argentina. Models have also represented South Korea and India.
