What do you mean the film festival isn’t over yet? There’s still a few days left? Are any celebrities even still in town? Kurt Russell, you say? In 2013?

In this photo, students of local artist Yan Jhen-fa mourn the lost of Brad Pitt’s ponytail during an oil painting class at a local school in Tainan, Taiwan. It’s okay, tears are normal after experiencing a life-altering event.

We waited all day for this gallery and all we got were these Stoli-branded umbrellas. By the way, Stoli would still like you to know that they still really like gay people.
