Twoppics, the stories behind the hottest topics on twitter.
Hot twoppic of the moment is World Cancer Day, observed by the World Health Organization every February 4th. The WHO estimates that 84 million people will die of cancer between 2005 and 2015 without intervention. This year, the day's theme is "cancer can be prevented," and focuses on ways to prevent cancer by not using tobacco, consuming alcohol, and promoting a healthy diet and exercise.
Your hot twoppic of the day and week is the Superbowl and the reason everyone will be watching this Sunday- the commercials. Some ads have already caused controversy, here's what we know so far: For the first time in 23 years, you will not see a Pepsi commercial during the big game. Budweiser said they will not be using their famous Clydesdale horses, but then decided to go viral with the decision, letting fans vote on the return of the horses on Facebook. And advertising for the first time during the Bowl, HomeAway.com's ad will feature Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprising their roles in the "National Lampoon's Vacation" films.
Controversy is brewing over ManCrunch.com, a gay dating website whose ad features two men kissing. CBS will likely not allow that one to hit the air. But CBS will air the Focus on the Family pro-life advertisement featuring Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. And just to add to the controversey: Jersey Shore's @ItsTheSituation tweets JUs LAnded in LA - about to SHoot JAy LEno TOmorr n THe ELlen SHow - AFter that on way to SUperBOwl to SHoot w PEyton MAnning- let the speculation begin.
