SHARE THIS: Target's Big Ad, Skating On Stilts, Aussie Road Rage and Coach Rice Animation

Posted: Updated:

Now some stories that caught our eye today...stories you're going to want to share.

First up...Target is in hot water! All because of THIS ad. It's for a plus sized dress... It's the color that has many angry…called "manatee gray". However...if you get the same color in a regular size, it's just called "dark heather gray". The color was figured out by a shopper. Target has apologized for the name, and has now changed it.

Some people have a lot of time on their hands, and can master things like ice skating…on stilts. David Isaacson mastered the feat about five years ago... And now performs at hockey games across the country.

A crazy case of road rage captured down under...a skateboarder was nearly clipped by a car, so he took matters into his own hands. The fight was caught by the person behind them with a cell phone. It was a bloody brawl. Both were throwing punches and wrestling on the ground. Police say no report has been filed yet...so that means no arrests.

And...you know it's a big news story when you get the animated treatment from Taiwan. That's right. The firing of coach Mike Rice at Rutgers for throwing basketballs at his players and yelling slurs during practice...gets the full on animation treatment. This comes from the same people who made animation about Dennis Rodman, The Pope, President Obama…and much more. Watch the video HERE on YouTube!!

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
