Google Earth has just launched a new hi-res 3D version of New York City by utilising better textures and higher detail models to improve the quality of New York City in Google Earth. This is great for anyone who has never been to NYC and is planning a trip here. You can literally map out your entire day and see what the city streets have in store for you. You’ll now see shop fronts, residences, sidewalks, parks and hi-rise towers in much greater detail. As if it needs to be said, but Google continues to push the envelope of what is possible in the digital world. Matrix here we come! Here is the Full HD version that Google has also posted on YouTube.
Can you imagine Nike shoes can be used to play music? This “Nike Music Shoe” video is an ad for the Nike Free Run+ shoe. The Nike shoes are used as controllers by bending the flexible sole of the Nike Free Run+ to produce different sounds effects. Enjoy the awesome “Nike Music Shoe” performance by Hifana, a talented Japanese musical duo.
Dont tell anyone that these ads were made by the government. England’s Department for Children School’s and Families wanted to target 16-18-year-olds in the UK with a condom campaign. They didn’t want to the kids to know it was the government preaching to them, because then who would listen. It would be uncool. So, probably after some in-depth research, focus-grouping, and other such nitwit nonsense, the DCSF and their London ad agency DLKW came up with “graffiti.” I love the idea that the government is finally starting to see the upside and positive messages that can be associated with graffiti art.
The press agency noted
England has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in Europe. The solution: a guerrilla-style press campaign. Each ad spread the message ‘wear a condom’ through the idea of respect, a key social currency amongst our target. Using real graffiti and removing all government branding created a relevant way to talk to teenagers without alienating them with official messages.
Not too long ago an Iranian prayer leader, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, was quoted as saying, “Many women who do not dress modestly… lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.” Jen McCreight, a Purdue University student, was not having this comment. She decided to start a movement to have women flex their cleavage Today April 26th to prove that earthquakes won’t happen. BOOBQUAKE!!!!!!. There are 63K + confirmed attendees on the facebook event page. I’ve weighed the positives and negatives of this event and arrived at the conclusion it essentially cancels itself out.
1) Many girls will be showing off leavage today, a positive for men everywhere right
2) There will be no earthquakes and this Iranian radical will feel like jackass if only for 2 secs but it definitely will not change his views on the world.
1) Many girls will be showing off Cleavage that definitely have no business showing off cleavage either because they just don’t have the body for it or they might create some awkward situations. For instance, you know some idiot will be flexing boobs in a business meeting or in front of classroom of kids or something, just places it shouldn’t be done.
2)Most important, by recognizing the comments of some radical Iranian leader, you are now giving him a platform to stand on and his voice is heard.
From McCreight’s blog blaghag.com: “On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that’s your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I’m sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn’t rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it’ll be one involving plate tectonics.”
Most of you guys will be turned of by the length of this five and half minute video but for those that stick around, your time will be rewarded handsomely.
The band is called The Axis Of Awesome and they takes us through a seriously awesome medley of a 4 chord progression that has been the base of every hit pop song ever.
To close out this week we want to leave you with the new video and song from Chiddy Bang called “Truth”, which samples a song from Passion Pit. We did an artist spotlight on these guys a while back you can check here and they are not disappointing us with our prediction of them blowing up. They are really up and coming and guaranteed to make noise in 2010. This is a great jam and video to ride out on, have a good weekend zooters.
This photo has been floating around the internet this week and it seems to be a time traveler caught in a photograph that hangs in the Bralorne Pioneer Museum in Gold Bridge, British Columbia. The photo is titled “Reopening of the South Fork Bridge after flood in Nov. 1940. 1941 (?)” meaning that this photo is about 70 years old. There is nothing really exciting going on in the picture, except for the dude who looks like he belongs on Bedford Ave in Brooklyn drinking coffee. Although everyone likes to believe in time travel stories, the members of the ATS, like “Outkast Searcher”, diligently noted, despite looking very modern the man’s outfit and even glasses and camera could be found in the 1940s. I guess the only thing to do is give this guy props for spawning the hipster army that now takes over LA and NYC.. wait.. I mean.. fuck this guy.
It’s always the worst when someone comes up to you and says, “O man you really look like ______.” Then when you see who they are talking about they are pretty much telling you that you look like a horse with a beard, it’s like umm cool thanks for completely insulting me dude. This collection of look a likes is exactly that but so spot on that you can’t even get mad at the comparison.
It’s always fun watching game shows with your friends screaming out the answers and yelling at the T.V. in disbelief of how dumb the contestants are, not paying attention to the 80 other questions they got right that you didn’t know. But it is always fun when a contestant get something to obvious and elementary wrong that it just becomes comical. Of course you always would like to see an average person win a boat load of money, but on the other hand watching them fail miserably and look like a complete asshole on national T.V. is something to also root for, here are 7 epic game show fail videos.
1. Obviously when owls are attacked they spray ink at you, who doesn’t know that, duh.
2. The price is wrong…. bitch.
What’s not to love about AXE? Their ads are the best and the product makes you smell nice. My brother is a full on stock holder. He is never without something Axe. Its actually a little creepy. Anyway, wth today being Earth Day, this recent effort from AXE asks you, “can you ‘Do The Earth A Favor & Save Water Now By Showering With 4 girls!”.
A world without a “Fivesome” is just bad for the environment!
In an attempt to raise awareness about the very serious issue of water conservation, AXE is encouraging Canadians to drop their towels at the door this April 22nd and give Showerpooling a try. Showerpooling promotes water conservation by encouraging groups of like-minded individuals to share their showers and save a valuable natural resource in the process. Im pretty sure that if this is how we are going to save water, we should be doing it more than once a year. Honestly, showerpooling with 4 girls? Sounds like a movement I could really get behind.
