Wall-et

Dentsu have just delivered a wonderful presentation on creativity.
However the highlight for me was this ridiculous yet brilliant smart-wallet.

I know what I’m asking Santa for!

Van Damme - Splits

A few days ago Volvo Trucks released an ad, teasing the release of their latest ad.
Oh yes, we do that now.

As you may have guessed from the  clever title, this campaign features ‘vans’, or in this case Volvo Trucks, and Van Dammes, just one, Jean-Claude (of course).

The Teaser

Tantalising isn’t it?
Well wait no longer. It is the 14th, we do have the stunt and it is awesome.

Volvo Trucks – The Epic Split

Thanks for pointing this one out @JanPruijser

Guillermo del Terror

To celebrate the release of their latest Halloween offering, ‘Treehouse of Horrors XXIV’, Matt Groening is putting Simpsons’ iconic couch gag in the fantastically horrible hands of Guillermo del Toro (apparently they have a good eye for this).

Treehouse-of-Horror-XXIV

Del Toro did more than just a quick TV gag, he went to ghost town and created a 2 minute 45 second intro, transforming our beloved Simpsons’ characters into the most feared creatures from horror-history. The intro is packed with so many references it will keep your wide eyes glued to the screen for the entire time and even then you’d be hard pressed to spot them all. There is an obvious slant towards Del Toro’s on films but that just makes it more enjoyable, I  let out inward squeel when I saw Homer morph into a reaper from Blade 2 or on seeing  Groundskeeper Willie as  Red (Hellboy not Morgan Freeman).

Treehouse of Horror XXIV Couch Gag by Guillermo del Toro

The episode will air this Sunday (06/10/13). Happy Halloween everyone!

Thanks to @Steve_Jude for sending me this.

Plumb Drunk

In this amazing viral stunt, a group of mischievous mates replumb an entire house so every tap flows with Tui beer.
What a horrible trick to pull. You really know who your friends are, hey?


You can watch the full length version here

The stunt was created by Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand and although we may not believe every aspect of this pleasing prank, the sediment still remains.
Tui’s are a cool brand!

 

Seven PsychoCATS

If you can forego the slightly saccharine outlook of the forgivingly pretty presenters, then Clevver Movies is a really good YouTube channel to subscribe to. Regular uploads keep followers abreast of breaking trailers, movies and Hollywood goss… but never this-

Ex Cartoon Network and Adult Swim director (and all round doer) Jim Tozzi has recreated Martin McDonagh‘s Los Angeles criminal underworld… with cats.

Seven Psychocats

Based on the upcoming movie Seven Psychopaths (obvs), Tozzi has turned the all star cast into all star cats, to much amusement. For me, Christoph Walken makes the best pussy there but who’s you favourite famous feline?

Check out the original trailer here.

Google Sea-View

I like Turtles!

… So you can imagine how chuffed I was to discover this:

It turns out there is even more. Not only have they taken their 3D Google cams underwater but they are also running hangouts from the watery depths:

Their next under water web chat is taken place tonight (yes… night). You can keep abreast of all the upcoming action here.
