Volvo getting you to think about their cars while watching other car ads during the Super Bowl? Brilliant. Love, love, love this idea.

Well, it looks like they did it. Droga 5 and Newcastle have managed to create a ridiculous Super Bowl ad with 37 brands in, each helping foot the bill. The brands? Seemingly everyone from Jockey underwear to a dental office in Pittsburg. Well played Newcastle. Well played.

Only Ken Block would have to have a Ford F150 kitted out with suspension-mounted tank tracks and a 650hp turbo engine so he can go nuts on snow-capped mountain tops. Not that I'm complaining.

Ever wonder how Call Of Duty "captures" those sweet-ass KillCam POV shots? Well, according to the new ad campaign for their Advanced Warfare Havoc edition, they use this friggin maniac, Mr Randall Higgins - a sarcastic, narcissistic, eats-food-out-of-a-can, spits-in-the-face-of-danger prick, who's pretty good with the camera and absolutely terrible with zombies. Well, of course they do.

Ze Frank, Buzzfeed and Friskies are back in time for Super Bowl Sunday. Is it as funny as the first Dear Kitten vid that took the Internet by storm or even the second Dear Kitten vid with the new puppy? No. But it's still pretty rad branded content to watch. Enjoy!

This is not a joke. To promote his new suspense novel, Private Vegas, author, James Patterson, together with ad agency, Mother, has created a book that will destroy itself within 24hours of you turning its first page. You can buy it for $294,038 or you try your luck at being one of only 1000 lucky people who'll get a chance at downloading the free ebook version by heading here. It too will destroy itself, albeit virtually, 24 hours from the second you swipe its first page. How brilliant is this? I doubt there'll be a more suspense-filled book ever. Good job, James Patterson.
It's been a while, but it seems Microsoft has returned to relevance with something amazing. It's called HoloLens, a pair of goggles that project holograms you can actually interact with, fully. They unveiled the prototype to a small group of reporters yesterday and from reading this NYTimes article about it, it's no gimmick. Sure, it's not perfect, but they were blown away. Looks like the future will arrive quicker than we thought, thanks to Microsoft? Hmm...

For years, they've tried to find a way to make tennis more exciting. I think they've finally done it.
If you live in Washington DC, the next 90 days could be amazing for you. Not because only you will be able to push a single button on your smartphone and have beer delivered straight to your door. No. That beer is Bud Light and it's never amazing. No. The next 90 days could be amazing for you because you could be one of the lucky few who push that button for beer and get an entire party delivered to your door, with Steven Aoki, hot girls and prob so much more. If it was me, I'd totally order the beer, hope for the party, and when it arrives, let everyone enjoy their Bud Lights while I sip on some delicious Pliny The Elder all night. Just sayin...
