The Dockers "men of style" video advertising campaign is an all-boys club no more. Credit for cracking the khaki ceiling goes to Los Angeles-based author -- and authority on all things tomboy -- Lizzie Garrett Mettler. The brand's just-released first-ever "women of style" video (see below) shows the author of "Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion" sitting on her couch, digging through her closet and walking her dog while wearing a black, button-front shirt and black-colored khakis and talking about her affinity for wearing the pants.

When John Berlin scrolled through Facebook this week, he, like almost everyone else, saw auto-generated highlight videos of friends' histories on the site. He kept seeing the name and photo of one person who didn't seem to have a highlight reel of his own: Berlin's son, who died two years ago at age 21. “I got to watch mine and my wife's and my kids', and Jesse's picture would pop up in them,” Berlin said by phone Friday from the family home in Arnold, Mo. “I found myself looking at his friends' videos next.” But Berlin wanted Facebook's take on Jesse's own memorable moments.

The end may be near, on YouTube anyway, for “Romney Girl,” a politically pointed video satire jabbing Massachusetts Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, now that creators have stated that Universal Music Group has ordered the video to pulled by 5 p.m. Friday on charges of copyright infringement. “Romney Girl” adapts the music from the 1997 dance-pop hit by Aqua into a satirical celebration of Romney's wealth and his reluctance to release more financial information, a tack that the video's creators argue represents “fair use” of the source material.

U2 has unveiled the video for its new single “Invisible,” a stylized concert performance directed by Mark Romanek that zeroes in on the sense of community that's long been a cornerstone of the band's appeal. Reviewing the Dangermouse-produced single recently, Times pop music critic Randall Roberts described it as “a prime U2 jam, a snagged-from-the-ether track so logical as to feel somehow fated to exist.” It's the first offering from the new album due later this year.

Scientists have released video of an 8-foot-long, shimmering oarfish taken  about 200 feet below the ocean surface -- and it is breathtaking. Elusive and alien-looking, the oarfish has a thin, eel-like body with squiggly iridescent markings that glow blue in the video. It also has a long dorsal fin that stretches the length of nearly half its body, and large round eyes rimmed in silver.  That bright white blob you see in the fish's spiny dorsal fins is a parasitic isopod -- sort of like an ocean version of the roly poly bug -- that has attached itself to the fish.
