Van-Damn!!!

 

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

Photoshocked

To help bring a little joy to your Monday moaning I thought I’d post this inspiring use of photoshop, for both good and evil… both are good.

Firstly I’d like to spread some light on this dark image:

This image has haunted the internet for over a year and that’s nothing compared to the poor woodland Redneck that pulled it from his deer cam. But the truth behind this mysterious underling has recently surfaced on reddit (either that or it’s an even cleverer hoax on the original clever hoax).

Now for some more enlightening news.

After a family of Star Wars fans take a trip to Sequoia National Park, graphic designer Dad Anthony Herrera decides to make it a day of Ewok hunting amongst the Endor style redwood forest. These are the events that followed in his own words:

“A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.

See his post here.

Looking at those happy family photos does make me a little envious, I wish I had an Ewok.

Anyhoo, I hope this has brightened your Monday. See you again soon!!!
(…metaphorically speaking.)

Water Good Trick

So my friend sent me this nifty trick, as he knows I like a nifty tricks. But this is a stretch.  If it is fake, which I hope it is not, then I really like the failed attempts and the allusion to difficulty throughout.

The comments below the YouTube upload speak a lot of magnets, so maybe it is possible but just not the way it is described.  Either way, it looks very impressive and certainly makes the viewer question their own understanding of physical principles.

So, without further ado…  (‘Drum roll please’)…  I give you…
