Mad Mended

College Humor take a look at some alternate outcomes for the Mad Men intro.

Advertising lolz!

OK, I’m going to send this round my ad agency right now. The response however can not be determined at this point. You see on the plus side; I have found a short video that is both relavant to the industry and relatively funny but… And here is my almost unforgivable oversight, it is over 24 hours old. I KNOW… I’m sorry!

So, how will it be received? It really is too close to call. To be on the safe side I will caveat my mail with some sort social experiment declaration. Wish me lolz!

Beastie Boys – Play (and win) games with Spike Jonze

To promote their new Album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the Beastie Boys have joined forces with legendary director Spike Jonze, comedy production giants Funny or Die, American singer songwriter Santigold, many many GI Joe style action figures and a Yeti… and produced this almost epic yet rather entertaining video viral.

The aforementioned track seems to feature throughout, although the focus is definitely on the action. It’s 11minutes, but thanks to it’s ever changing action, charmingly hand crafted animation and zombies (yes zombies), it just flies by.

Good work by Jonze and the gang I’d say, and the final cliff hanger… oops, I’ve already said far too much. Enjoy:

Predator the Musical

They’ll lead you to believe this is a fan made video using clips from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1987 classic ‘Predator‘, but I happen to know otherwise.   John McTieran (director) actually based the film on Arnie’s year three university project ‘If it bleeds we can kill it’.  McTieran was so impressed with the production he used the entire cast (and some of the footage) from the early project.

I think Arnie is a man of more talents than we may ever know.

Dorkly

The other day I was overcome by a weird wave of nostalgia.  I decided to purge this sentimentality with a few bouts on YouTube.  I went about finding comedy callings from Street Fighter, Sonic, Mario and Mortal Kombat and thats when one name kept appearing…

It’s an almost vast array of comedic clips based entirely on classic video games (such as those previously mentioned).

 

Obviously I found like nostalgic crack.  Here are some of my favourites:
