The Shed at Dulwich was the number one rated restaurant in London, with foodies, celebrities and bloggers trying to get a table. The main obstacle for them, however, was that it didn't exist. Over the course of 8 months VICE's Oobah Butler used an assault of fake reviews to get his 'restaurant' to the hallowed top spot on TripAdvisor.
With his phone perpetually ringing, PR agencies begging to represent it and TV crews pitching shows, Oobah decided he had no choice but to open its doors for one night only. Here is Oobah's journey into a false reality that captured the world's attention.

You’re trip advisor’s worst nightmare - this guy is a total LOSER - i hope you were thrilled by your fake lifestyle - gee how fulfilling as a crappy, shitty person very funny hahahahah grow up you dumb immature careless child
This guy seems like a nice guy and all why in God's name did his parents name him Oobah? Did they lose a bet with friends or something? This guy has to walk around with the name of a Dr Seuss character for the rest of his life. I feel for the guy.
What a trip.. that laugh at the end is the laugh of the white man that is so amused by his ability to fool others. I’ll admit he doesn’t seem to cause any grief or harm in his foolery. What a video. This is more than a video obviously but it’s still just a video. Just mind boggling.. what’s possible.
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
