Did you know that if you don't win an Oscar, they give you a goody bag?
It may sound childish, but it's true. While the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has no official involvement in disseminating gifts to its members on Oscars night, marketing firm Distinctive Assets has taken over the task of stocking "goody bags" with pricey treats for the losing nominees. So what's in the 2013 swag bag? Facelifts.
Yahoo! reports that included in each swag bag, each valued at $45,000, is a $5,000 "vampire facelift." The treatment, which has been around for several years, consists of drawing blood from the patient and injecting back into parts of the patient's face. The plasma from the blood supposedly plumps the skin and also stimulates the body's production of collagen and elastin.
We don't recommend it if you're squeamish about blood... or anything having to do with "vampires."
Luckily, if the losing Oscar nominees aren't so keen on the newfangled facelift, they can console themselves with a few other goodies in the bags: a $600 acupuncture appointment, 10 personal training sessions valued at $850, a $3,000 stay at the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort in Mexico... and condoms.
