OK so it's not like the whole informercial spoof genre hasn't been done to death but this outing from TextWise enlists Keyboard Cat and who doesn't love Keyboard Cat? There's all kind of talk about a document's "semantic DNA" and using an entire document to find another document. It's all way over our head but the woman in the ad is cute so we're all over it.
Kinda lame until the end but it's only one minute long so it's sort of worth the wait. Not sure what PETA would have to say about animal treatment in this video but Westwood College doesn't seem to have a problem. All they want is for people in less desirable careers to realize a little education can help a person land their ideal job. But this "roadkill detective" seems to be quite smitten right where he is.
Not that we didn't know this already but someone went to the effort to prove it anyway. Boondoggle took their five "gold" Lions to several goldsmiths to see just how gold they really are. The findings? According to one goldsmith, a Gold Lion is just "a bad piece of blunt casting." No goldsmith found any worth to the statues.
Anyway, Boondoggle is very happy and proud to have won five "yellow copper Lions."
Why anyone hasn't thought of this witty little word play is beyond us but non-profit Wherever the Need, with help from Skadaddle Media, is having fun with it. The effort aims to call attention to the importance of sanitation and to raise money to build eco-sanitation toilets for third world countries.
