Ben Baller, celebrity jeweler (currently), formerly a lot of cool jobs and things just released his first reality webisode series where he ices out an old school “Benz” chain for Pusha T. The series went from being a FUSE network reality show, to being cut, to being back in the loop, to having MTV in the mix, then MTV dropping out, and then Electus and Google to finally being the suitors. Take a look at the sizzle reel and first episode with Fabolous he pitched to those above production companies above a few years ago:
Alex is in his mid twenties. He lives in Los Angeles. He restores antiques. And he’s a pretty normal guy. Except for one thing: Everyday he wakes up looking like someone else. And it’s been happening for as long as he can remember. Welcome to The Beauty Inside.

The Beauty Inside is an interactive social film, presented by Intel and Toshiba, directed by Drake Doremus, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Topher Grace, and all of YOU. It’s Hollywood’s first film that gives the audience a chance to play the lead role. Audition Now at http://www.facebook.com/thebeautyinsidefilm/
The video is about Alex, a 20-something male who lives in Los Angeles, restores antiques and wakes up every day with a new physical appearance — something that has been happening throughout his life. As Alex navigates the trials and tribulations that come from his ever-changing appearance, he carries and uses a Toshiba Portégé® Ultrabook™ which also serves as his personal journal.
The film stars Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, however, the main character is up for grabs! A global, online casting call will run via Facebook and viewers can audition for the chance to play one of the roles of Alex. Because Alex’s appearance keeps changing, multiple people will be chosen to play him, and auditions will continue until the project ends on Sept. 20.

Allen Iverson Speaks On The Return Of The Reebok “Questions,” Football, & The Possibility Of Playing In China
It’s hard to find a player that was – or is – more popular than Allen Iverson. Myself, a kid who spent his younger years growing up in the southern parts of Florida, didn’t even have a favorite basketball player from the same state I resided in. Most were fans of Tracy McGrady, Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway or even Shaquille O’Neal. But me? My favorite player was always A.I. I had every single pair of his sneakers that ever hit the shelves in Kid’s Foot Locker, along with his jersey’s, and I even tried to emulate the same cornrows by getting my then afro braided .. I wanted to be Allen Iverson.
But then again, what kid didn’t?
Back in ’96 during Iverson’s rookie year, Reebok came out with his signature shoe: The white/red colorway “Questions.” He famously crossed Michael Jordan wearing them and scored 40-plus points in five straight games toward the end of the season in them. They’re arguably the most popular basketball shoe ever created. And the best part about them? He didn’t even know they were being made for him.
From SLAM Online‘ Tzvi Twersky‘s interview with VP of Reebok Classics, Todd Krinsky:
Who knew Kate Upton could get down like this? Hat-tip to GQ for the video!
