Wildlife officials say Kingston and a woman were on the watercraft Sunday night when it hit the Palm Island Bridge in Miami Beach.

Video-gaming in the nude... now that IS one way to get noticed: 'Documentary' of new U.S. craze becomes online hit (but is it real?)


A documentary film has revealed the latest craze to sweep the U.S. - video-game contests in which the players are... completely naked.

A clip of the film depicts a nude 'video-gaming gathering' in New York's SoHo, where dozens of enthusiasts meet up with nothing but a games console to cover their dignity.
But it turns out the 'craze' is the invention of an advertising agency plugging a new product - and the fly-on-the-wall documentary is in fact a staged spoof, using more than 30 actors and friends who were reading from a script.

And it seems the strategy has worked. The 90-second clip has had more than 500,000 hits since its release this week, and prompted a storm of debate.
Its creators believe most viewers are unaware they are watching an advert for the Xtendplay video-game accessory - a stress-reducing device covering the video-game controls. Yet website traffic for the company that designed the accessory has shot up since the clip's release.
James Percelay of marketing firm Thinkmodo, which came up with the hoax, told the New York Daily News: 'If it were a typical ad, you'd have this filter on and then you'd look at it a certain way.
'But if it's content that's seemingly un-sponsored, then people are fully engaged and then are really open to exploring it.'

The company has previously produced spoof documentary clips for shaving products and the film Limitless.
Mr Percelay denied that the adverts take advantage of uninformed consumers.
'The art form is progressing where people presume now that these videos are hoaxes,' he said.
'We're entering into an understanding that, it's kind of the implicit agreement now where the audience just wants to figure out how we did it.
'It's almost the way you go to a magic show. You know it's not real, but you still want to sit down and figure out how that guy pulled a car out of his briefcase.'

That's amore! Jersey Shore's Sammi and Ronnie swap fighting for flirting on romantic stroll in Florence



It seems that the romantic surrounds of Florence is helping rekindle the flame between Jersey Shore's Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
Just days after the former couple were spotted holding hands and smiling as they headed out for a dinner date, the pair were seen today, once again looking well and truly like a couple.
With his arms wrapped around Sammi, Ronnie held on tight to his ex-girlfriend as they went for romantic daytime stroll around the city.

And it seems that the feeling was neutral for Sammi, who blushed when the burly reality star gave her the big cuddle.
Dressed casually for the outing, Sammmi slipped into a pair of mini denim shorts, a black fitted tank top with a white sparkling version over the top.
 
And it seems that Ronnie approved as he couldn't keep his eyes nor his hands off the tanned star.
Laughing and smiling the pair appeared to be smitten with one another.

The couple split at the end of last season after she learnt he had been cheating on her.
There were fireworks when Sammi stormed out of the Jersey Shore house after learning of his philandering.
At the time she was said to be furious after seeing episodes, filmed last summer in South Beach, Miami, which showed Ronnie kissing other women before he then got into bed with her.
'Sammi was angry and hurt by everyone,’ a source told Radar Online at the time.
'She couldn't believe Ronnie did this and the girls hadn't really told her.
'She just couldn't stay living with the person who did this to her, so she moved out.’

'She had to find out in front of everyone that her boyfriend was lying to her and treating her like hell,’ the source added.
'If he didn't want to be with her any more why do that on national TV in front of everyone? He embarrassed her in front of 5.5 million people.'
Meanwhile Snooki stepped out for a sunshine stroll yesterday in a rather frightful ensemble that included denim hotpants, fluffy boots, diamanté encrusted sunglasses. 
She had a checked bow clipped into her hair and in what may have been a subconscious reference to her ability to dress, her fluro green T-shirt was emblazoned with the words 'I'm bad'.
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, and her best friend Jenni 'JWoww' Farley later stopped in at a tattoo parlour. 
Their 'guido' costars Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, Paul 'Pauly D' Del Vecchio and  Vinnie Guardagnino ditched the gym for a carb fix and were seen tucking into plates of pasta at an outdoor trattoria. 
The group were enjoying some time off after working at a pizza shop near the Uffizi Gallery earlier in the day.

A parachute made for two: Love is in the air for teen sweethearts Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez


He's just 17 years old, but as a world-famous pop star Justin Bieber has seen more of the world than men twice his age.

And as he frolicked on the beach in Maui with his young starlet girlfriend, Disney star Selena Gomez, 18, with her arms and legs wrapped around him, he certainly seemed older than his years.
The baby faced singer has been enjoying a romantic vacation with Selena, staying in a $10,000 a night suite at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Sweeping Selena, 18, up in his arms, as she clung to his waist, he embraced her in full view of other beach-goers.
 
The pair then enjoyed a splashing contest, before showing their adventurous sides with a jetski ride and flew above the sea on a parasail.

Justin took charge of the jetski, powering through the waves as his girlfriend clung to his waist at one point tenderly placing her hands on his shoulders. 
The pairing of two such teen stars is a publicist's dream. But while they are reportedly being supervised by their parents - they made sure to stay out of shot so as not to spoil the stunning pictures.

While on the parasail - which had a rather fitting smiley face design on it - they took their relationship to dizzying new heights. 
The couple are reportedly staying in an exclusive $10,000-a-night suite at the Four Seasons resort. 
According to website Hollywood Life: 'The pair are in the Maile Suite, a luxury palace on the seventh floor of the resort.

'The signature of the three bedroom suite is floor-to-ceiling windows which allow a magnificent ocean view.'
The suite, which they're sharing with their parents, has three bedrooms and five beds. 
Special features include a 50-inch flat-screen television with DVD player, a stereo with CD player and a music and movie library, a marble master bathroom with a deep soaking tub with whirlpool and a separate eucalyptus rain shower.
The couple can also enjoy romantic meals in the elegant dining room which features an adjoining butler's kitchen. They also have their own 24-hour personal concierge.
Whether the youngsters are allowed to share a bed together is unknown, although with Justin being a minor it's doubtful their parents would allow such a thing. 
However, Justin and Selena's time on the beach appears to be completely unsupervised. 
At no point during their romantic day together did there seem to be any elders present - aside from their parasail ride of course.

The teens apparently spent most of their time together without minders or their parents.
But the holiday isn't all romance for the youngsters - both are accompanied by their parents, who were elsewhere as they enjoyed their trip to the beach.
As Justin cavorted with Selena, he revealed his two tattoos.

One, on his stomach, is the outline of the seagull from Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a tattoo he had done to match his father and uncle and mark his 16th birthday.
The other, on his torso, is in Hebrew.
As Bieber is aged under 18 he needed parental permission to get his tattoos.

The young lovebirds smooched as Justin dominated the star-studded ceremony last weekend.
Selena appeared to be making a good impression on her boyfriend's family, as she sat with her arm around Justin's mother, Pattie Mallette.
She was, however, notably absent from her boyfriend's two acceptance speeches.

He thanked his family, his fans, manager Scooter Braun and Usher - who signed the youngster to his record label and turned him into a superstar.
'Basically everyone who helped me get out of my hometown and live my dream,' he said.
The young couple made up for their awkward moment as the former YouTube sensation was named the top new artist of the year.
Justin leaned in for a passionate kiss with his girlfriend and Selena beamed with delight as she watched her boyfriend on stage.
