Awesome blob vid
Ok, shooting people into the air is pretty radical. These blog things are great for that. Usually a heavy(ish) person jumps onto the blob, sends someone sailing into the water. This vid two large guys jump onto the blob and the smaller person on the blob goes for a major ride.
Found some macro shots of eyes on the interwebs today. They are really stunning, done by Suren Manvelyan.
If you drink a particular drink, you can put your head back together.
I can’t tell if I like this because it’s got neat effects or what. Really the premise is pretty simple, the concept not earth shattering, but it’s still quite entertaining. And in that vein, the other ad in this campaign I saw is even more amusing. I mean, we’ve all seen these Rube Goldberg spots and videos (a la OK GO’s last video), but I’ve yet to see a goldfish attempt such a trick:
I better start chugging some Drench, as I have some work to do. Oh wait, they sell Drench in England. Speaking of which, Clemmow, Hornby, Inge & Partners are responsible for these little guys.
Ps- Wonder if any goldfish were harmed in the making of this?
Who’s your daddy?
No, really. Who is your daddy? Maury Povich answers this question for inquiring babies everyday on his show. You know the drill: woman comes out on stage crying about how she doesn’t know which of these 20 men impregnated her, then one of the suspects makes the defense that it wasn’t him. Finally, after a lot of booing and silly interviews comes the best part—the DNA test results.
The show is often really comedic, but unfortunately for those of us with full-time jobs, we rarely get to enjoy the drama- filled hour of Maury. That’s where this blog, The Results Are In!, comes in, with animated gifs to reduce the show down to its most hilarious moments.
New GoLite Work
Since its beginning, GoLite has been all about lightweight gear made for the trail. Whether it’s an after-work out-the-backdoor loop, backpacking the Colorado Trail or connecting the dots on an overseas adventure – the more time we spend on the trail, the better we feel.
The insight for this campaign is about choices. The choices we make determines how much time we have for the trail. Do I choose to watch some reality TV or do I get off my ass and go for a run? Do I pack the blow-dryer, the curling iron, the straightener AND the krimper?
The images were shot by the uber-talented Jamie Kripke of Boulder. He uses cameras.
Make your mac yours
We all sit behind silver Macs. It’s what we creative types do. The designers at Herraiz Soto & Co thought that if we’re supposedly expressing ourselves while working on our Macs all day, why not express ourselves directly ON our Macs? So, became StickWithMeBaby. So, go buy yourself some stickers and let your Mac sport it’s lovely handlebar mustache.
Showing popularity at Cannes, this ad has become a YouTube favorite, garnering over 2.5 million views. It was done by Y&R Thailand Bangkok, and is for slimming green tea. Thought it was a funny way to start off FRIDAY.
