Dude Catches Laptops in His Butt

laptop_butt_msi.jpg

OK so first there were the Cutwater-created videos for Ray-Ban which had a guy impossibly catching sunglasses on his face. Now we have a video of a guy catching a laptop in his...wait for it...butt. Yes, over and over again laptops are tossed into this guys butt and he catches them. Already almost a million views.

Foster's Brings Back 'How to Speak Australian'

fosters_speak_australian.jpg

Really not all that great unless you think picking up a girl with a simple tip of a beer can, a mumbling idiot and a generous bartender are your form of entertainment, here are three new commercials from Foster's which bring back the brand's "How to Speak Australian" tagline.

Digitas Chicago created the spots along with...MODERNIZED ELEMENTS (INCLUDING SOCIAL MEDIA AND ONLINE VIDEO)!!!!!!

OMG! This is amazing. We've never seen such leading edge work before in our entire career of kicking the crap out of the ad industry! This is just....I don't know...such stunning work. Just can't get over it. Need to take a nap to recover from all this excitement.

But we suppose it's cool the spots were directed by Bud "Dude" spot director Clay Weiner. It's all good.

Samsung Offers Photo Tips Hoping You'll Buy Their Cameras

Well here's an interesting way to pimp a a new video: "We've not pushed these out to any websites - just a hushed public launch, because they're so heavily branded and we don't want people to feel like we're trying to trick them in to watching the campaign"

Fair enough. So the video is for Samsung and it's actually six videos in one. Each video displays the magic of Samsung cameras' ability to transform subjects into, well, something other than they really are. And that's a good thing. Some of these subjects are pretty creepy.
