Rejected Star Wars products
Last week I showcased a bunch of bootleg Star Wars toys that just had to be seen to be believed. This week, I think I've actually topped it. You won't believe some of the wacky products that were actually proposed. I personally would have purchased the “Han in Carbonite Mini-Fridge” or the “Jabba the Hutt bean bag chairs,” but there's no accounting for taste, right? Check out the rest of the wackiness and have a laugh.

New member of the family
THIS IS AWESOME! See what happens when this guy sends his mom and dad a video message introducing the newest member of his family: “a pug!” You won't believe what the dog does and reaction of the owner.
Some dude drives a wrecked car
I'm not kidding...this car is totaled! I don't know how long he got to drive this for on the highway or the ticket he got for it, but it probably wasn't good when he finally got pulled over.
