In 1994 PJ & Duncan did prophesies that ‘everyone’s got to be an AKA lover’, and today it would seem they are.
Ant and Dec’s PJ & Duncan single ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rumble’ goes straight to number 1 in the UK Charts.

Weiden + Kennedy have consistently delivered awesome ads for the nearly defunct mens grooming brand, Old Spice. Since Isaiah Mustafa first exploded onto a horse and onto our screens in 2010, Old spice has experienced continuing commercial success (yes, we’re ignoring Fabio). The latest Old Spice manly manifestation, Terry Crews, has just released Vimeo’s first (as far as I know) interactive music video!
Watch carefully as Terry manipulates the instruments with his rippling muscular physique. Did you enjoy that? Well now it’s your turn. Hit (nearly) any key on your keyboard to smash cymbals, blow flaming saxophones and drop strings of sausages .
Watch me jam solo, then use the special interactive player to record your own remix. Go ahead, show me what you got!
[This was partially an experiment to see if the interactivity worked when embedded.]

Adam Buxton recently uploaded a childish little ditty to YouTube (I know, it’s so unlike him). It’s a short sketch from his ongoing Sky Atlantic show, BUG. If you haven’t seen any of it yet… WATCH IT ALL!!!
It has made me laugh a lot. Thanks to the guys at CarbFreeCreativity for brightening up my morning.
Right… I have Party Pom Pom to get to. Byeeeeeeeeee!
