A DOUBLE DOSE OF LV
 
The international French fashion house helps the sport pétanque celebrate its 100th anniversary, while the owners of a different kind of house show their love for the brand in an unexpected way.

France - South of France's official sport pétanque is celebrating its 100th anniversary in style. Louis Vuitton is creating a limited-edition pétanque ball set to honor the leisure sport, which includes a leather-encased set of nine monogrammed balls and a cochonnet (jack). What exactly is pétanque you ask? It is a form of boules where the goal is to throw a ball as close as one can to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet. But if you're still wondering how it is played in case there's a great chance you'll be playing a pickup pétanque during Labor Day weekend, check out this video of the Pétanque Mondial 2006 semi-finale .

Mexico - Now for a more interesting LV news that I'm sure the fashion brand did not see coming. What we have here is a one-story house in Mexico entirely covered in the Louis Vuitton logo, which an anonymous Internet user found this gem on a Facebook profile. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that LV has nothing to do with this, but that sure is some real love for the brand I tell you. So what do you think Blaynistas? Funny or just tacky?
