Because everyone knows that business success relies on linking your brand to bodily waste, here is a urinal in Brazil from Billboard that lets you shred while peeing.
The face-melting bathroom fixture, conceived by ad agency Almap BBDO and 3-D modeled by Cricket Design, is making the rounds this summer of several bars in São Paulo. As you can see, “Guitar Pee” looks like a regular urinal with a fretboard sticking out of its top and an ominous electric cord connected to an amp on the wall.

Pee n Play.
This urinal video game allows you to control a slalom skier via *ahem* your stream, as you try to reach the finish line before you’re finished emptying your bladder. And while this might sound like fun after lifting a few pints, I can’t imagine it’s going to last long in the typical men’s bathroom, what with all the graffiti artists and *ahem* wetness everywhere…

Perhaps a little tart in the bathroom?

Women are happy everywhere knowing that they can finally stop telling their husband to put the toilet seat down
Is this the toilet seat that Darth Vader would chose for his personal quarters on the Death Star?

Can’t get your sweet tooth off your mind? Wear it on your head instead! The strawberries and cream hat is fun, flirty, and not as tacky as you might expect!
