A promotional stunt went awry Friday in Seoul, South Korea, where LG Electronics promised to give away 100 advance models of its upcoming G2 phone to anyone who caught a balloon holding a coupon for the $850 device. Members of the crowd reportedly used BB guns and other means to get an edge; about 20 people were injured.

… One woman who came to the outdoor event brought a long stick resembling a spear; a man brought what looked to be balls of tape tied to the end of a string. In a Korean TV news report on the event, a crowd is seen chasing a batch of the balloons as a worker struggles to release them.

Fashion designer Leah Workman has created wacky wigs for dogs and cats that turn them into pop princesses. The wigs are modeled after the hairstyles of celebrities, including Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Dolly Parton. But the most popular is the Lady Gaga hairpiece.
