Hi-Five - "She's Playing Hard to Get"

Hi-Five's "She's Playing Hard to Get" is often an overlooked classic in 90s R&B .  Hi-Five were kind of like a poor man's Boyz II Men.

But the song features almost everything you would want from a song from this era such as brightly colored dress shirts, vests, and sports coats along with choreographed dance moves.

In retrospect, the song and music video may also double as an instructional video for 90s sexual harassment.

Ben Harper and Eagle Eye Cherry are not the Same Person

Ben Harper not Eagle Eye Cherry, two different people

I didn't think this was ever an issue for anyone but surprisingly it is. People have seriously thought they were the same person.

For instance, this person actually asked if Ben Harper was in the band Eagle Eye Cherry.  There's just so many things wrong with that besides the fact Eagle Eye Cherry is a person not a band.

Give more than one black guy a guitar and suddenly it's hard for people to tell them apart.  They're not even the same nationality as Cherry is Swedish and Harper is American.

Jesse Heiman Makes Out with Bar Refaeli in Go Daddy Super bowl Commercial

Things just keep getting better for Hollywood's go to background nerd Jesse Heiman as he gets to make out with Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli in Go Daddy's newest Super Bowl Ad.

He may never have dialogue, but who needs it when you get to make out with Refaeli.  According to Adweek, Heiman got to do it 45 times as it took that many takes to get it right.

That's unbelievable because it's uncomfortable enough to watch that one time never mind several more times.

Of course, the better question is why Refaeli agreed to make out with a nerd like Heiman for a commercial.

I doubt she needs the money so maybe Leonardo DiCaprio has just damaged her so much emotionally that lower tier guys now have a shot with her.
