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.

Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

If Justin Bieber were your boyfriend, you'd live in a world full of hot girls, retro-cool cars and one now-legal teen idol playing guitar, campfire-style. And even though he's not really your boyfriend -- ours either, sad to say -- Bieber's new "Boyfriend" video is happy to let you enjoy that swag vicariously. Warning: It looks as if turning 18 has freed up Mr. Bieber's inner sexy. Of course, it's all relative -- he hasn't exactly drifted in to D'Angelo territory . And it might just be us, 'cause we're sitting here thinking that even his silly fondue line seems a little tastier with the video playing.

For centuries the giant squid has been the stuff of legend, but now, for the first time ever, scientists have collected footage of a giant squid, ( Architeuthis), in its natural habitat, thousands of feet below the ocean's surface. "All of us were so amazed at what it looked like," Edie Widder, a marine biologist who was part of the successful video making mission, told the Los Angeles Times. "It looked carved out of metal.

A UC Irvine fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta came under fire toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign. The video, whose existence was revealed by the Associated Press on Friday, appears to lend credibility to allegations that the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia contributed to the Correa campaign.

Kobe Bryant, void of nagging injuries for the first time in a few seasons, seems to have found new spring in his legs and showed the Clippers his dunking ability Friday night. It came without the aid of a lob. Against Clippers point guard Chris Paul. The Lakers' All-Star guard, now in his 17th season, deflected a pass by Paul near the free-throw line, tracked it down along the sideline and went the length of the court before throwing down a one-handed dunk over Paul. You can see it all unfold in the video above.
