Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
With the release this weekend of the film Men In Black 3, starring Will Smith and Josh Brolin, we’re dedicating today’s Doom Digest to all things Men In Black!
Will Smith – Save Us PSA
After finding out that Will Smith would NOT be doing a theme song for Men In Black 3, like he did for the previous films, SneakyZebra decided to put together this PSA called Will Smith: Save Us, and I can’t blame them.
Men In Black 3 Pink Surprise Cake
In conjunction with Men In Black 3, Baskin-Robbins has a Lunar Cheesecake ice cream flavor, The Lunar Lander and Agent 31 sundaes, and the Triple Mocha Cappuccino Blast beverage, as well as Pink Surprise Cake, a triple-layer ice cream cake with Oreo Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream sandwiched between two layers of Devil’s Food Cake and adorned with pink frosting roses. The inspiration for the cake comes from one of the film’s pivotal scenes.

We’ll end this edition of Doom Digest with a video from TMZ from the MIB3 premiere in Mwscow where a Ukrainian reporter got a bit of a love tap (read: slap) from Will Smith after he tried to kiss the actor on the lips. According to reports, kissing celebs is what that reporter “does,” and although Smith was caught off guard, he kept his cool and joked about it.
