Bonding During Buffering Has Never Been So Awkward

home_hatterys_cox.png

Draftfcb Chicago has created a fairly hilarious series of commercial for Cox. In the series, the Hattery family, a very weird dad, Paul, torments his family with his antics. It all begins with dad awkwardly bonding with his son, Tyler, during buffering moments cause by DSL. Over five episodes, things just get weirder and weirder with Paul obsessing over unlimited phone service and going all "par-tay" pn his family once they get a Cox whole house DVR. Commercial insanity at its finest.

Be sure not to miss the always awkward "if we all had cox" dialog in one of the episodes.

Old Printers Perform Bob Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changin'

Following in the footsteps of Honda and a collection of other brands that have made music out of ordinary sounds, printer brand Brother has created an orchestra of old printers programmed to perform Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin'.

Shockingly, I'm old enough to remember most of the individual sounds used in the video to create this orchestral masterpiece. Brings back memories. But, thankfully, technology has given us much quieter printers and, hence, a much saner workplace.
