Thank God for DVDs (they’re still a thing, right?). I never would have noticed these cut aways without slow-mo.
Well, that’s a DQ, as in he left a Dairy Queen swirl on the astroturf carpet.
Earlier today, the team here at Internet HQ went to lunch, and the playlist at the restaurant was both eclectic and inspiring. Core outputs were as follows:
1) Aerosmith did indeed produce the song “Dream On.” Agreed: it barely sounds like Steven Tyler. Yes, it’s weird. But it’s Aerosmith, goddammit.
2) Silverchair is terrible. As a child of the 90’s who enjoyed head-bangin’, bong pullin’, and ’87 Pontiac Grand Am ridin’, far be it from me to disparage the music that made Birks shuffle across the nation. But Frogstomp is an awful record, and “Tomorrow” is an awful song. An awful song that is now buried in my brain. An awful song that is absolutely, positively appropriate for Power Chord Friday.
Some cheeky blokes from the UK present ten options for jumping a bridge with a rally car. Spoiler Alert: option 10 is by far the most badassy.
It pains me to say it as a both a Flyers fan and a jaded advertising nincompoop, but this Boston Bruins parody title sequence knocks it out of the park. This is what happens when you take a good idea on paper and produce the living shit out of it. The direction, the editing, the music, the titles…it’s no Nanook, but it’s mighty fine work.
You’ve been busted for what seems like public super-drunkenness and you’re being whisked off to the pokey. After preparing your legal defense for what you’re sure will be just like that re-run of Night Court you caught last night you decide that there’s nothing left to do but sing for your freedom.
Mexico City, you bad!
We’ve all had to do some big-buckled belt tightening of late, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look pantastic! This commercial packs more buns and bad Bee-Gee’s ripoffs into 30 seconds than should be allowed by law.
The double ententre isn’t used nearly enough in advertising. While it can be campy, or unintentional, or just plain awful, a well-crafted bit of wordplay can be beautiful. Especially when you have the good sense to cast a self-deprecating blonde who pulls off the best hair flip ever recorded on film.

Well aint this is a breath of fresh air!* A real-time visual interpretation of America’s wind patterns. Perfect for kite flyers, Marilyn Monroe impersonators, and toupee wearers everywhere who want to know the perfect places to poach those powerful puffs of air. Heads up, Wichita…it’s a bit breezy outside. *sorry
