Oh, The Places I'm About To Go. Hmm...

 
Tonight my dear friends, I leave on a trip. 
To where there are no computers, not a bleep, not a blip.
I'll be gone for a while, but never you fear. 
Though I've left planet Earth, our dear blog still lives here.
So keep up your chins, and keep going Hmm...
The world is still full of wonderful things.
I promise to return as soon as I can.
From that most wondrous place, my beloved Burning Man.

Well done Black River. Lovely stuff. What a rad ad.  

A 4-Year-Old Piano Master. Hmm...

 
I can't even remember what I was doing at 4-years-old. Probably glue and macaroni.

Yet Another Reason To Do The Right Thing. Hmm...

Come on people. If your conscience won't guide you, let heaps of cash do the job. Let's get these spineless fuckers before they wipe Rhino's off the face of the earth. A big THANK YOU to a certain Dave Luis and his Mxit team for spearheading this. More people like them please.   

The Vaginal Tightening Gel Ad You Won't Believe Is Real. Hmm...

  18 Again? Really? India, you're ridiculous!  

Pointed out to me by these peeps  

How To Live Forever. Hmm...

According to Buster Martin, a 101-year-old marathon runner and plumber, you need to avoid fish, water and dairy. But be sure to stock up on beer, cigarettes, red meat and veg. In your face common sense and proven scientific studies!  

The "Leaked" iPhone 5 Keynote Video. Hmm...

This. Is. Brilliant. Haha. Wait. I have an iPhone. Screw them. This is crap.  

The Drunk Mirror. Hmm...

See what you look like after a few drinks in this effort to curb drunk driving. Will it work? Probably not. But hey, at least they're trying.  

The Awesomeness That Is Google Wallet. Hmm...

And Google's plan for world domination moves another step forward...

Better Late Than Never Of The Day. Hmm...

Good on ya, McD's.  

A Dog Shaming Tumblr. Hmm...







A Tumblr that proves dogs are real assholes. People too. I'm not sure if this is funny or sad. Hmm... Funny. Yup, definitely funny. Wook at dat shameful face. Check out more here.  

Self-Freezing Coke. I Shit You Not. Hmm...

Looks like Coke's been practicing the Dark Arts. Wish they'd practice it here instead of in Hong Kong.  

How A Movie Trailer Turned Into A Proposal. Hmm...

Goose bump stuff...  

The Black Keys Make It Rain Pixels. Hmm...

So there's an amazing 3-day music festival in Montreal called Osheaga. This year, they had everyone from Florence And The Machine to Justice, Franz Ferdinand to MGMT rocking the crap out of tens of thousands of music lovers. But nothing came close to what the Black Keys did. As they were performing Everlasting Light their fans were treated to what they call "pixel rain" where thousands of tiny LEDs were dropped over the crowd care of Air France. I have serious FOMO right now. Damn those French Canadians.

On August 27th, Paint The Town Black. Hmm...


August 27th is Arthur's Day - an annual celebration for Arthur Guinness, the father of Guinness. Apparently, it's a huge event that takes place in 55 different countries. Now, thanks to Saatchi London, we can all start to prep for it. 
 

Balls. No Not Those Ones. Hmm...

The rad peeps at Everynone have a new vid for us... about balls. Well, spheres.  

Meet The Rich Kids of Instagram. Hmm...






These kids have waaaaay too much cash and they aren't afraid to flaunt it. Their favourite way? Instagram, of course. Follow #rkoi or just visit the Rich Kids Of Instagram Tumblr site and watch these kids make it rain all over the world. Yachts, Ferraris, $100,000 bar bills... it's disgusting. And awesome. But more disgusting. The site went up only a month ago and it's now one of the most followed sites on Tumblr. Maybe that's more disgusting. Hmm...

Hmm... Of The Day


 

Tight Rope Walking Between Two Moving Trucks. Hmm...

Would you believe this is an ad for Volvo? They commissioned a champion tightrope walker (yes, it's a thing) to demonstrate the precision driving of their new trucks. She agreed to walk a tightrope stretched between two speeding Volvo trucks hurtling towards a tunnel that'll eventually sever the rope. I guess that whole idea of "safe" and "volvo" is long gone.

If Apple Made Gum, Here's What Their Ads Would Look Like. Hmm...

So this is weird. An Apple ad parody for a gum. I preferred it when Stride were in the business of sponsoring that geeky-looking dude to dance around the world. At least that was entertaining. Wow, I'm grumpy this morning.
