Model Rachel Cook Seductively Eats An Apple Pie In This Video Series

From sultry McDonald’s commercials, to even hotter Carl’s Jr. commercials, Los Angeles-based video director Chris Applebaum has a knack for tapping into both our sexual, and food-driven desires at the same time.

His latest work consists of model Rachel Cook having her way with a pie. In the 3-part Instagram series, Applebaum shows the model dismantling a whipped cream-topped apple pie, while Foghat’s “Slow Ride” plays in the background.

Applebaum has been on a bit of a food kick lately, shooting models such as Brittny Ward eating Lucky Charms…

You may, or may not love the sexual nature of these food videos, but you can’t hate too much on a creative artist who knows how to tastefully blend the two worlds together.

Beloved plus-sized model Iskra Lawrence just responded to online haters in the most epic way.

Lawrence, who boasts over a million followers on her Instagram page, is a UK-based model and Aerie Real Role Model featured in the company’s un-airbrushed photo campaign.

Fed up with the online bullies who bash on her appearance in her pictures, Lawrence uploaded a photo and video to her account in an attempt to shut them up. The award-winning ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association is depicted lying on the ground surrounded by bags of chips.

Her action was in response to a cruel comment posted on her earlier posts that read:

“Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.”

McDonald’s Reveals Its Big Plan To Turn Around Their Flailing Company

McD-Lovin-Tale

After a week of hyping a big announcement, McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook has finally revealed the company’s upcoming plans to turn itself around. Looks like a comprehensive restructuring of the company is in the works, announces the CEO.

McDonald’s Corp. will plan to operate fewer “company-owned” restaurants and cut $300 million a year in general and administrative spending, reports NRN. This also means pushing more franchise-owned stores.

Easterbrook admitted that McDonald’s current business structure has become “inefficient” and that it lacked “fair accountability for fair performance.” Apparently, McDonald’s has been using “legacy” business models for years and that just doesn’t fly anymore. Easterbrook, who’s only been CEO for a month, says that he’s working to modernizing the company’s current business model.

The fast food chain has underperformed in sales for the past two years. This lead to a worldwide closing of hundreds of unprofitable restaurants.

McDonald’s has recently gone through many menu changes and brand redirections in the past two financial quarters. This includes the “Create-Your-Taste” burger customization kiosks, the short-lived “Pay with Lovin” campaign and cutting 9 items from the staple menu.

Easterbrook admitted that sales have definitely been poor and “The numbers don’t lie.”

Perhaps with these new goals, McDonald’s Corp. might see a noticeable change in its sales numbers by next year.

Here Are Human Flags Eating Their Country’s Food [NSFW]

These models are taking national foodie pride to a new level. French photographer Jonathan Icher paired up with makeup artist Anastasia Parquet to remind us that any food in excess can lead to obesity, no mater how delicious or what stereotypes we associate with it. Ms. Parquet used her magic to cover models in paint, turning them into their nation’s flags. Next, Icher stuffed their faces with their national foods and started the camera.

Yes. It’s supposed to be creepy and no, you probably won’t feel hungry after clicking through the photo series. But that’s the point Icher is trying to make. The “Fat Flag” photos, as the collection is called, are more about making a statement than being enticing. Or pretty. Or appetizing.

How do you feel about these peculiar portraits? Let us know in the comments below!
