A ‘natural’ energy drink has been banned in Australia after it was found to contain a prescription only erectile dysfunction drug at levels above the recommended dosage.
MosKa, described as a herbal energy drink designed to naturally enhance sexual performance, was found to contain Levitra - the brand name of drug vardenafil - when tested by Australian authorities.
Possible side effects of the drug include priapism - an abnormally long lasting and persistent erection, which can cause permanent damage, along with sudden hearing loss.
It is particularly dangerous for men with heart conditions - who are not prescribed the drug - due to possible cardiovascular side effects.
In a statement on the company's website, MosKa said the batches were produced by an external supplier and so they were unaware of the undeclared ingredient.read more
Evian has been delighting viewers with their dancing baby adverts for some time now, but the latest is the most ambitious yet, seeing The Amazing Spider-Man in a dance-off with a baby version of himself that he sees in the mirror.
Scroll down for the video
In case you missed the previous commercial, it saw people's reflections suddenly become infant-sized after drinking the bottled water, aa weird reference to how natural (and presumably hallucinogenic-filled) Evian is.
The follow-up sees the same fate befall Spider-Man, who reacts like anyone would upon meeting their reflective baby self in the side of a skyscraper and breaks into dance, web-slinging here and there and generally busting a serious move.

The corsage costs $20 and comes with a $5 coupon for a drumstick in any flavor, including extra crispy, grilled or original recipe.

"My last name is Cocaine," the man said proudly at the podium, it transpiring that it was indeed his legal name as stated on his driver's license.
"You know, I thought I'd seen it all," Hurley laughed. "How many times have the police told you to step out of the car during your life?"
"Just about every time I get pulled over," Cocaine replied.
Funnily enough Cocaine was actually arrested for illegal possession of Xanax.read more

Sensing the PR opportunity, Meadowhall Shopping Centre were quick to respond - by opening a slightly genius fast and slow walker’s read more

Drinking a Fruit Shoot twice the size of his head like an absolute boss, the boy looks around searchingly as the bristles pound the windscreen, before reaching a hand out to his father in such a way as to say: 'Take me away from this hellish place'.

Australian celebrity vet Dr Chris Brown found himself in the middle of a rather awkward situation when he accidentally interrupted a “dolphin orgy” while trying to film a segment for Channel Ten’s programme The Living Room.Dr Brown said he was swimming with the animals off the New South Wales coast after attempting to attract them by singing a high pitched tune.
His call appeared to have worked when he suddenly found himself surrounded by dolphins.
"Either they are here because of my call or they are here to tell me to 'shut the hell up'," the surprised vet can be heard saying in a clip from the programme's teaser.
He said he only realised the animals were mating when he watched the segment back.
“I’ve always known dolphins to be incredibly social and inquisitive. And this day they were. But it was different,” Dr Brown told The Daily Telegraph's Sydney Confident
