Venables Bell & Partners, with help from 1st Avenue Machine, have created this fantastic animated representation of internet speeds to herald the launch of Google Fiber in Kansa City, one of 1,100 cities which applied for the behemoth's new 1000 MB/Sec fiber network.
The agency crafted a representation of on internet speeds as if they fueled the physical goings on within an city. Beginning with antiquated 56K speeds to 10GB speeds and all the way up to 1,000GB speeds, the video is underscored by an ever more speedy version of The Cars hit, Just What I Needed.
A dead-on representation of what life would be life if it ran at 1,000GB/Sec. Impressive work.
Now here's a job that would drive a person crazy. According to ProtectYourBubble, every nine minutes someone loses their phone and every 19 seconds a phone is dropped in a toilet. Where these statistics come from no one knows but they are the basis for a campaign the insurance company is running in advance of the Olympics.
In the video below, we are introduced to a worker whose job consists of managing the Lost and Found at the London Olympics. You wouldn't want to sit in his office very long.
Early this week, a video purporting to be a display of the first ever Humpy Awards debuted. In the video, judges rate dogs on several humping criteria including speed, stamina, style and other factors.
Of course, there's no such thing as the Humpy Awards. But there is such a thing as Small Town Security, an AMC show, premiering July 15, which highlights private security company JJK Security in Georgia. What dog humping has to do with security, we know not but we assume we'll find out once the show makes its debut.
The video isn't quite what we'd call a viral success but 146,507 people have viewed it to date.
OK. So it's the old "flop them around in a stunt driver-driven car" scenario. Except this time, there's no bulging breasts bursting out of button down blouses. Just regular people experiencing what it's like to ride in a BMW with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tires.
The work comes from GSD&M and was directed by Ben Conrad. In the video, passengers experience all manner of road hazard from oncoming vehicles to stuff faling out of a truck to rain-covered roads and even some winter weather thrown in.
Speaking to us on behalf of the Carson J. Spencer Foundation, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Office of Suicide Prevention, the very manly Dr. Rich Mahogany aims to help men deal with life's curve balls with Mantherapy.
Sitting in his, ahem, mahogany-filled office, complete with buck head, trophies, diplomas, and leather-clad arm chair, Dr. Mahogany, who cleans his desk with a leave blower and warms his hands by stuffing them down his pants, explains men have a certain way of doing things. And when it comes to divorce, depression or suicidal thoughts, men should have a certain way to deal with these issues too.
International porn legend, Nacho Vidal, has unleashed his secret to stellar performance in bedroom. In a comical mostly-NSFW video, we see the effects of the aphrodisiac/performance enhancement supplement Fortiplus on Vidal as he pleasures woman after woman after woman...all while he seemingly goes about his daily business.
Guess it makes sense that sex simply becomes boring for a porn star after a while and all that matters is whether or not one can maintain an erection. Personally, we enjoy the aphrodisiac-like spontaneity of random sexual encounters.
It was funny the first time. It was mildly amusing the second time. It began to grate the third time. The fourth, well, it's like being forced to watch Rebecca Black's Friday over and over again with toothpicks holding your eyelids open.
Yea. It's plastic surgeon extraordinaire Dr. Michael Salzhauer again. This time, as "Booty Doc," he's having fun with LMFAO's Party Rock. This work follows his ribbing of Old Spice, Shades of Grey and Justin Bieber.
As tired as this has become, secretly, we can't wait to see what he'll parody next.
Not that you'd encounter any of this while driving down the freeway but this is advertising and in advertising anything can happen; even scenarios that are ludicrous and unlikely. But, since this is advertising, it's all about art and creativity. And this new video, Bullet, touting the BMW M5 is, indeed, artistic and creative.
Watch as the vehicle smashes through a giant glass apple, meticulously pops three gigantic water balloons and plows through a target. If only driving on the freeway were this blissful. But apparently, that's the point. Buy a BMW M5 and maneuvering through a traffic jam or the crowded streets of New York will be as artful as this commercial.
Remember Google Chrome: Coffee, the video Google created that showed how a guy used Google to get an old girlfriend to have coffee with him? Ever wonder what Jen's response would have been to Mark's persistance? Well, now we know. The guys over at UCBComedy created a spoof response to the video that portrays Mark in a completely different light.
It's not hilarious but it does have a few funny moments.
A recent video from the European Commission's Women in Research and Innovation effort to encourage more young women to pursue a career in science has sparked a bit of a furor over it's portrayal of women.
In the video which, again, is supposed to focus on encouraging girls to take up a career in science, we see three girls enter a lab as if it were a fashion runway. In what looks like the beginning of a porn flick, the three girls strut their way in wearing mini dresses and high heels as a male scientist ogles the girls.
