What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Smashing a “Star”

YouTube “star” has his ridiculous gold wrapped BMW smashed with a baseball bat during a photo shoot in New York whilst blocking traffic

 

Though he has 2.7 million subscribers to his feed on YouTube and 201,000 followers on Instagram, New Yorker Coby Persin is someone most of our readers will unlikely ever heard. He likes showing off his “ripped abs”, pretending he is the reincarnation of Zac Efron and making videos where he shows girls to be “ultimate gold diggers”, but yesterday he shared a video of himself getting a dose of his own medicine (or simply performing a stunt to get more followers for his pretentious self).

 

In a 41 second clip, Persin was filmed with his hideous gold wrapped BMW in New York doing what he describes as “a quick photo shoot to get some cool pictures” whilst inconsiderately blocking a lane of traffic. Posing like the true prat he plainly is, this “YouTube star” is then interrupted by a man with a baseball bat who proceeds to smash the vehicle and then walk off.

Though Persin is now offering a reward of £806 ($1,000 or €944 or درهم‎‎3,700) for the arrest of the man concerned, most in the media simply decided to mock him. Of him, for example, Jack Moore of GQ remarked:

 

“[Coby Persin] stopped traffic so he could take some douchey pictures with his douchey car. And then New York City did its magical thing and made a perfect, brilliant, beautiful moment happen”.

 

“Now, sure, the ‘law’ might say that he ‘damaged property’ or ‘wielded a baseball bat like a maniac’ but that’s looking at this the wrong way. (Maybe it’s even a stunt?) But I’d argue that this is New York City at its best. I mean that dude HAS A BAT WITH HIM IN HIS CAR AT ALL TIMES. And that decision paid off, because he was there to remind this guy that the city doesn’t care if you have a fancy car. You f**k with people trying to get where they need to go and they will f**k with you right back”.

  1. The boy needs a good slap for what he did to the girl at the bus stop. I don’t condone violence but I don’t blame the motorist for whacking his stupid car. Idiot boy.

  2. I think he’s funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the prank at the bus stop with the different cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should be given a TV show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Block traffic in New York with a hideous goldwrapped BMW at your peril. Serves the douche right. As for the bus stop prank, hilarious! I watch many of these pranks on utube with Lamborghinis (far superior to a BMW)! Very funny.
