FOX Sports did a tremendously genius thing recently. While Mike Tyson was in the FOX Sports green room they folks at FOX brought out the old 8 Bit Nintendo gaming system with Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
Why was it a brilliant move? Mike Tyson never played Punch-Out. Kind of crazy to think about that Mike has never played the game, but it still made for YouTube gold. Here is the video of Tyson playing.
7UP recently put on an online competition asking for amateur filmmakers to produce a 30 second spot for the new 7UP TEN soda, which is a basically a 7UP with 10 calories. A few videos were recognized with distinction, but the one below is my favorite. It’s a ridiculous take on the level of exercised required to burn 10 calories. Music’s not too bad, either. Take a look:
I always wondered what would happen if a fan got to grabby with a performer during a concert. I now know what Rihanna would do in that situation.
During her stop in Birmingham, England on her worldwide tour a fan clung on too long for Rihanna’s taste. While singing “We Found Love” she was prancing around the stage and went into the crowd.
As she was giving high fives to her fans one member of the audience grabbed onto RiRi’s hand. As a result she hit him with her microphone. So next time you go to a concert don’t mess with Rihanna. Here are a few videos from people in the audience.
Another great video from the folks at Bad Lip Reading just got released. This time these guys poke fun at the AMC hit show “The Walking Dead.” It even got the approval from Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon on the show.
So the Coors Light Explorers tripped out some beautiful people trying t o have a nice pool day in South Florida. Check out this clever spot that shows the Explorer crew zip-lining, riding sled dogs and repelling from a helicopter to hook up some pool-goers with some frosty silver bullet action:
You get the feeling that making a commercial with these two would be awesome/impossible.
This commercial will start airing in April, but here’s your first look at Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler spot featuring Kate Upton, Hannah Simone and Genesis Rodriguez. The campaign will lead up to a live body hair styling event on April 18th. The event will be streamed online and will feature Kate, Hannah and Genesis fielding questions and chiming in on their male body hair styling preferences. Fans can send in questions via Twitter (@gillette #whatwomenwant), on YouTube or Gillette’s Facebook page.
You gotta love these high production value Heineken spots. This one was directed by Rubert Sanders. It showcases the brand’s newly designed Star Bottle, a sleeker, taller take on the traditional green glass Heineken house that we’re all used to. Here’s the video:
If you have not seen the Bad Lip Reading video collection do yourself a favor and check out their YouTube channel. Recently they had a huge success with their NFL video. I still am quoting lines from that one. Earlier this week the guys from Bad Lip Reading just released their take on the “Amazing Spider-Man” film. Here all the great and romantic love scenes between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy are turning upside down in a good way. Enough talk….check out the video!
Anyone who’s ever been on Reddit knows that Nokia phones have developed a bit of a reputation for being indestructible. But that reputation doesn’t just apply to the old Nokia phones (like the 3310). New Nokias, like the Nokia Lumia 920, are also built to withstand physical stress from even the clumsiest of cell phone users.
I’ve dropped a phone or two in my day. Who hasn’t? Well if you want to know how the Samsung Galaxy S III stacks up to the Nokia Lumia 920 in a physical stress test, this video is for you. It shows the before and after results of both phones taking on a high speed baseball from a pitching machine. Take a look:
Not convinced? If you want to suggest a more dramatic physical challenge, send a tweet to @NokiaUS using the hashtag #lumiachallenge. Come up with something clever and you could see your idea on display in the next Outrageous Challenge video!
