Lenovo Takes On Apple, Samsung Style. Hmm...

Prankvertising. Just when you thought it was dead and buried, a creative team somewhere pulls out a ouija board and summons it back. And for what, a pc laptop that can bend? If I wanted a device that bends I'd get an iPhone 6 Plus :)

The Real "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Teaser Trailer. Hmm...

The teaser trailer I posted a few days back, though super rad, was, sadly, fan-made. This one is JJ Abrams-made. I gotta say, the fan-made one is better. Makes me wonder if JJ stands for, dare I say it... Jar Jar? Please say no. Pick it up, Abrams. You're our only hope.

Simply go to thehumanclock.org, upload a photo of yourself and voila!

What People Are Probably Thinking. Hmm...

So my good pal, Juniper had a lovely idea a while back, to not direct ads all the flippen time and instead, once in a while, shoot a couple of short films for shits and giggles. Well, these ones are definitely for the giggles. They're about what random people, (like you and I, yes we've all been there) may be thinking about as they go about their day. In this case "Disgruntled Ad Guy In Search Of Boobs To Bang" and "Judgy Coffee Shop Bitch On Her Phone All The Time." Working titles, of course. Enjoy :)

Brilliant!  

Semi-Truck Jumps Over A Lotus F1 Race Car. Hmm...

Technology company EMC wanted to show off the precision of their computing powers, so they figured out exactly what it'd take to expertly jump a speeding semi-truck over a speeding Forumla 1 race car. Then they did it. Pretty impressive stunt, I'll admit. The vid could use a bit more slow-mo at the end. Just for some extra drama. But hey, that's just me :) Enjoy.

  

Old Spice's Dad Song. Hmm...

First there was Mom Song - a musical about psycho moms with attachment issues, who stalk their sons after they leave the nest. Now, Old Spice lets dad weigh in on their boys growing up, with a little songwriting help from the brilliant Brett McKenzie, from Flight Of The Concords

5yr-Old Son Battling Cancer Gets A Surprise. Hmm...

Little Jayden has just been diagnosed with a Grade 4 Brain Stem Tumor. So, his father had a replica Spider-Man suit made so he could surprise his son on his 5th, and probably last, birthday. He even put on a fake American accent just so his son wouldn't know it was him... and you though Batdad was cool.

If The Dave Matthews Band & Beethoven Had Four Kids. Hmm...

You may remember The Piano Guys from their epic 50 Years Of Batman Evolution video a while back. Here, in one gloriously joyful take, they cover one of my all-time favourite bands, The Dave Matthews Band. And if that wasn't enough, they threw in a little of Beethoven for shits and giggles. Mostly giggles, I'm guessing.

The Most Heartbreaking Cover Of Blackbird You'll Ever Hear. Hmm...

Chris Picco’s wife tragically passed away in her sleep after giving birth to their son, Lennon James Picco, by emergency C-section at only 24 weeks. Chris used to play music for Lennon while he was still in the womb, and continued to play for little Lennon while he was in the neonatal intensive-care unit. The doctors and nurses tried their best, but sadly, just one day later, little Lennon also passed away. 

I'm certain all who come across this story weep for Chris Picco. Some will send flowers, others their thoughts...  I offer this, one of my favourite Beatle's covers:
