    This is a commercial for the Science channel's 'Through the Wormhole' featuring Morgan Freeman (who also hosts the show) talking on helium. Don't even act like you haven't waiting your whole life to hear what this sounds like. Now I can die happy. Hopefully in my sleep, but ... / Continue →

    Japanese drink manufacturer Otsuka plans to send a can of powdered energy drink to the moon's surface in October, 2015. Why? Allegedly to inspire kids to be astronauts, but in reality for the advertising. Pfft, aliens don't even like energy drinks. If they're smart enough t... / Continue →

    This is the poorly placed billboard advertising the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. I mean, it's true, it's just sad. Hopefully none of the old folks venture outside and see it. You stay in the cafeteria and slurp Jell-O, I'll take care of this. *climbs to top of buildi... / Continue →

    Two Street Fighter related posts in a row, what a Monday! What a horrible, horrible Monday (per usual). This is a commercial created for Turkish insurance company Anadolu Sigorta about a guy who doesn't think he needs auto insurance until Ryu comes and f***s his car up bonus ... / Continue →

    This is a viral ad for DHL shipping that involves pranking the other major shipping companies by using them to send giant chilled boxes with heat-reactive printing that reads 'DHL IS FASTER' when warm. Sure, clever prank, but still -- poor sportsmanship. I didn't know the shi... / Continue →

    This is allegedly the first movie poster for the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie. It left me with so many questions. Why does Rafael's shoulder look like a watermelon? Why is Donatello wearing eyeglasses? Is he the only one who needs corrective lenses or are the others wearing... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for Honda's CR-V filled with a bunch of optical illusions. Because that's how you get people to trust your company -- by tricking them. Now how am I suppose to know this alleged safety record of yours isn't just an illusion? It's all fun and games until ... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LEGO featuring a father and son bonding over building things together. It's pretty cute. Plus the kid speaks in a sweet British accent, which I'm going to start mimicking for the rest of the day so everybody things I'm a dandy lad. Here comes the som... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a model being Photoshopped to hell to show just how much computer manipulation goes on in the fashion and advertising worlds. Personally, I think she looked better at the very beginning when she was au naturel, but that's just me and I can see real inner... / Continue →

    This is the beer fridge rolled out in Europe by the Molson Coors Brewing Company as part of a campaign to sell more Canadian Molson beer in Europe. Why would Europe want some mass produced Canadian beer when they have so much good stuff themselves? They probably don't. But h... / Continue →
