As the photojournalists discuss their fieldwork and motivations, images from the trips in question flash across the screen. 6) Unilever Pricey, trendy beauty products aren't necessarily worth the hype, according to Unilever's latest marketing stunt. Vice's digital agency Carrot invited a group of real beauty influencers to try a fake new shampoo: Evaus (Spoiler alert: that's just discount hair care brand Suave spelled backwards). Packaged in a sleek, minimal bottle, Evaus products were a big hit with the influencers, who raved about how shiny and soft their hair felt after 10 days of using the line. When producers reveal that the "startup" hair care brand is really just $3 Suave shampoo poured into fancy schmancy bottles, the influencers are shocked -- and then seemingly delighted at the great value. "We found seven of 10 women think higher-priced brands are more trustworthy," Jen Bremner, Unilever marketing director explained to AdAge .

Ever dream of driving a flying car? Later this year, you may get the chance to. That is, if you stretch your definition of 'car', and can afford a Kitty Hawk Flyer. The Flyer, you're surely wondering, is an all-electric flying vehicle made by Kitty Hawk , a startup backed by Google co-founder Larry Page. The first version of the Kitty Hawk Flyer, shown off in a video released today, is designed specifically to fly above water. It weighs just 220 pounds, according to The New York Times , carries one person, and is powered by eight battery-backed propellers.

When Netflix signed on for Girlboss , it probably sounded like a great idea. Feminism, fashion, and San Francisco? We were about to have our first female president, so what could go wrong? When the show starts streaming on Friday, things will be a little different. Not only are we living in Trump's America, but Nasty Gal , the multi-million-dollar startup the show was based on, is bankrupt. The soul -searching of the feminist movement post-election has caused more people to realize that feminism as used by businesses to sell their products, no matter how cool, is at least an incompatible match, if not an entirely hypocritical one.
