Zombie Squid, Froggie Chorus Line, and the Color of the Year

This is just wild. I found this video on youtube. Would you eat this? Before you watch it, rest assured the squid is dead. What you are seeing is a chemical reaction to the salt in the soy sauce.

Cool, huh?

It can also be done with frog legs.

Now I know your all dying to know what the Color for 2012 is. Well, the wait is over.

It is:
Tangerine Tango

“Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” Pantone

Do you all feel refreshed now?

  1. Hi Holly .. not pleasant – nope I wouldn’t want to eat it .. but extraordinary reaction – especially the octopus. That will amuse the kids .. that’s for sure ..

    Orange is very vibrant .. I could do with some sun to cheer me up now and not make me squirm! Cheers Hilary

    1. True orange does not make me squirm either!

  2. Well I needed to be refreshed after what I was just subjected to with that squid … ewwwww.

    Like the color, though. Very nice.


    1. That was my reaction too.

  4. Ughhhh! No, ewwww, I couldn’t even watch the rest of the video once things started twitching, let alone eat the thing.

  5. Yes, so refreshed! 🙂

    And no I would ot be able to eat that squid. I know it’s dead but I still can’t wrap my mind around that. LOL

    1. The frog legs weren’t so wild, but the squid really did look alive.

  6. ick! Not something I would eat.

  7. Not a chance I’d eat that squid! He tried to crawl right out of the bowl.

  8. Glad I ate lunch already!
    Love Tangerine Tango 🙂

  9. No. No, I would most definitely not eat that . . . LOL.

  10. This is exactly why I don’t eat sushi! Disturbing on so many levels. But thanks for enlightening us on the color of the year. I do like orange and its various shades.

  11. That first clip was SO HORRIBLE that I didn’t even watch the second one. Yuk! And to make matters worse orange is not one of my colours. I’m winter so I can wear black, purple, even red but orange?… No way!

    1. Sorry Rosalind. Check back on Friday for a more appetizing post.

  12. I’m not sure let if that’s cool or ewwwwww. 😀

  13. boo, i can’t watch that videos. But yeah, i’d pobably eat it.
    And i love that color! So pretty!
