The fashion-industry elite walking out of the Swarovski-sponsored pre–CFDA awards dinner at Top of the Rock last night found a particularly exciting treat in their gift bags: a Swarovski-crystal- encrusted iPod Shuffle.

Think it's only the rich and beautiful at the Sundance Film Festival? Not entirely. The Bronx-based video artists Dallas Penn and Rafi Kam are there, too, and they're exploring Park City in a daily series of funny shorts called "Internets Celebrities."
