Hulk smash! Like he smash a lot. Is there such a thing as "smash insurance" because after watching some of this footage, we'd definitely look into it.

Filming in Johannesburg, the production team behind the camera of The Avengers: Age of Utron got some shots of mayhem and destruction that were meant to be caused by the not-so-Jolly Green Giant.

They overturned a truck, twirled around a bust of the Hulk, and extras ran screaming! It's highly entertaining!

Ch-ch-check out some of the amateur footage…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Is This Too Much?? Here's A Promo For The 24 Hour Oscar Pistorius Trial Channel!

Remember that South African 24 hour news station created specifically for the Oscar Pistorius trial that's starting in a few weeks?

Yeah, it's got a promo now (above) — and it doesn't convince us that it's necessary OR entertaining to devote so much time to such a trail spawned from an awful and tragic event.

We get it, people are interested. The problem we have is that it was a loss of life regardless if it was murder or an accident, and Reeva Steenkamp deserves better than the media whirlwind around Oscar because he's more famous than the average person!

News and trial results are instant enough with technology nowadays that people do not need a 24 hour channel devoted to a poor woman losing her life on Valentine's Day because her boyfriend shot her through a bathroom door.

Is this exploitation or not?

Elephant Murdered After Attacking Tourist's Car!

Filed under: Sad SadInjuryAttack!Elephants

At the Kruger National Park in South Africa, an angry elephant attacked and overturned the car of two tourists!

One of the tourists, Sarah Brooks, a British school teacher, was stabbed in the thigh when one of the elephant's tusks pierced the car.

Sarah and a man believed to be her partner were driving through the safari park, following the elephant until it suddenly turned on them.

It quickly attacked them, pushing then flipping their car.

Luckily, the attack was concentrated mostly on the rear of the vehicle.

The general manager at Kruger National Park said:

"Of course they were totally frightened but also thankful that they were alive. The car is a wreck, if I may put it that way. I mean it was completely flattened but fortunately the elephant concentrated on the back of the car, that's why we still have our guests alive now as I speak."

That must've been terrifying!! At least Sarah was okay after being treated for her injury.

Sadly, the elephant was shot and killed because he was just too aggressive to safely live at the park.

We're glad the people are okay, but so sad a beautiful creature had to be put down.

Check out the video (above) to see the attack in action!!

Albino Model Thando Hopa Fights Discrimination Through Her Journey Inside The Industry

Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationModels

As an albino model, Thando Hopa doesn't have it easy.

The South African beauty constantly has to fight negative perceptions of her looks in the already picky modeling industry, and she has to deal with terrible treatment and loads of prejudice in everyday life as well.

In Africa, numerous misconceptions about people with albinism are taken as fact, including the belief that killing an albino person will bring someone good luck and lots of money.

Some people even believe that sleeping with an albino person will also result in becoming rich and well-off.

With her work as a model, Thando hopes to put an end to these notions. She says:

Nelson Mandela Gets A Very Heartwarming Tribute From The South African Rugby Team

Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.InspirationRugby

south african rugby team pays tribute to nelson mandela

Who knew rugby could be such a tear-jerker???

Back in 1995, South Africa was the host nation for the Rugby World Cup, but Nelson Mandela knew it was much more than a sporting event. Instead, he saw it as an opportunity to bring together a nation that was still recovering from an apartheid.

His theory proved to be correct and South Africa was stronger than ever after the Springboks beat New Zealand in the finals and brought home their first ever World Cup victory.

Well the rugby team decided to pay tribute to their fallen leader who recognized that a simple game can be so much more than 30 men on a field, and can actually unite an entire country.

Ch-ch-check out the heartwarming tribute …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
