Every once in a while something so weird comes along and we love it. Why? Because we get to write WTF?! And we're pretty sure that's what everyone reading this is going to say when they get to the end of this video from Australia's Central Institute of Technology.

The work comes from Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann, a comedy duo from Perth. In the video, the pair teleport from one part of the school to another. All goes swimmingly until close to the end when things go a bit awry.

kia_sb_2011_lima.jpg

Well, what can we say about the Kia Super Bowl spot? It's one of the more WTF-inducing commercials we've seen in a while but, hey, it's a dream sequence! Yes, a dream sequence. After a sandman sprinkles a little pixie dust on a sleeping woman and sets her off on a quaint fairy tale, the guy next to her gets a little too much pixie dust sprinkled on him and all of a sudden there's Adriana Lima and an entire stadium full of bikini-clad fans professing their love for him as he drives buy.

Oh and let's not over look Motley Crew, rhino bullriding, Chuck Liddell and a giant submarine sandwich lumberjack competition.

Toyota Invents Baby That Doesn't Poop

toyota_sb_2012_reinvented_camtry.jpg

Toyota is out with an extended version of its Saatchi & Saatchi LA-created commercial for the Super Bowl. Called Reinvention, the ad takes a look at what things might be like if Toyota didn't stop reinventing after it reinvented the Camry.

From a reinvented couch made of bikini-clad hotties or male Chippendale types to a baby that doesn't poop and can time travel to a blender that plays Lionel Richie to curtains...made of pizza, the world would be a very different place if cars weren't the only thing Toyota reinvented.

Witty stuff. We like.
