Benny Frying Pan Rips Off Johnny Cupcakes

So this is a trip. It looks like a korean “brand” named Benny Frying Pan has decided that they want to be just like Johnny Cupcakes, literally. The Korean based Benny Frying Pan changed the name, but nothing much else. As you can tell from the comparison images below, Benny Frying Pan is a clear rip off of Johnny Cupcakes.

Even a close look at the two logos and you’ll notice that the cupcake are still there, but the fake version decided, hey, a fork and spoon would work better than bones. But you can’t fool us, it’s still a rip off.

I don’t understand Korean, but I would LOVE to read the Benny Frying Pan “History” and “Concept”, which they do have posted on their website, albeit in Korean. They even have a section dedicated to their “Logos” with the quote:

“Our icons are expressed to passion and pleasure, including Trust, Promise, Community, Understanding and Fun.”

It’s pretty sad.

So what do you guys think? Should Johnny Cupcakes pack up his suitcase and burn Benny Frying Pan at the stake? He should at least splash them with some scalding hot cooking oil.

UPDATE: It looks like Benny Frying Pan also has a US / .com version of their site. You can check it out here. Lots and lots and lots more rip off designs than on the Korean website. They even have fitted caps.

Hey Jude

Now this YouTube video of a Korean kid singing Hey Jude is too damn cute. I mean, the kid totally rapes the song, but still, it’s cute. And with 4,724,282 (and growing) views, I think the rest of the wired world, for the most part, agrees with me. 

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey jude, dont be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
Dont carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey jude, dont let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
And dont you know that its just you, hey jude, youll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then youll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Na na na na na ,na na na, hey jude…
