You Can't See the New Volvo. And Neither Can The Blind Artist

When you close your eyes and imagine what your perfect car (or anything for that matter) would look like, what do you come up with? For those of us who can see, it's just a temporary diversion. For blind artist Esref Armagan, it's how he's envisioned everything since birth.

Volvo has invited Armagan to Sweden to paint his vision of the yet to be launched S60 which will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Here's a short documentary on the project. A longer version will be available Monday.

It's truly fascinating to see how a person who's never seen a car in his life render it. Sure, Esref can touch all the cars he wants to get a sense of what they look like and he's likely touched many. But his finished product could be pretty interesting.

That or it will turn out to be yet another lame marketing stunt.

'The Switch' Has John Hodgeman Depressed

hodgeman_long_windows_7.jpg

Three new Apple commercials debuted last night and they directly address the launch of Windows 7. In one John Hodgeman humorously breaks his promise over an over again for each previous Windows release. In another, Hodgeman pretends to be a news anchor interviewing people making the switch but it's not the switch he'd hoped for. In the third, a woman decides not to stick with what she knows and hooks up with Justin Long.

You can view the commercial here, here and here.

When it Comes to Sexiness, It's What's Underneath That Counts

The debate about just what sexy is has been going on for as long as the first cave woman modeled the latest woolly mammoth fashions. Some enjoy full on nudity. Others like the teasing tantalization of skimpy clothing (think miniskirt, heels and a tight top). But some want everything left to the imagination.

In this commercial for Liaison Dangerous, we're given a glimpse under the hood of what would otherwise not be considered all that sexy. It's all relative.

If You Give A Bill to A Stripper...It Won't Have A Happy Ending

Ever wonder where that $10, $20 or $100 went after you handed it over to to buy some food, get a car wash or tip a stripper? Well, Germany's Heart's Desire Association takes a look at a single bill's travels. It isn't pretty. But the organization promises bills that find their way into the organization will have a much happier ending.
