This is pretty much what I think I’d end up as if I was a counselor…And yet, the simple advice he gives might just what needs to be said.
This incredibly imaginative short will have you double-taking every new ingredient…and possibly leave you hungry for some chips & dip!
Forget about Rebecca Black and the Beeb, this guy has the right idea. Taking asking a girl to the prom to a whole new level, this kid did everything right:
- He impressed the girl with talent and risking shame in front of the class.
- He wrote a pretty decent song that required the use of his homies (who were probably a source of extra confidence, too)
- He had the whole thing videoed and uploaded to YouTube.
The “awwwww!” factor is quite high, meaning that the video is likely to go viral and his talent as both songwriter and singer. While his initial objective to get a date for the prom seems to have been accomplished, I hope this kid gets a lot more out of his efforts.
Yesterday’s post featured a review of the Super Bowl ads rated best by mrmerlot.com. Today, we look at the runner-ups.
The Super Bowl XLV ads that won mrmerlot.com’s “best of” rating needed no explanation since the quality of the story and message was enough to prove their worth. This second string of nine ads certainly has plenty of quality comedic delivery. But in an age of commercial-free Tivo and online streaming media viewing, getting 30 seconds to woo a consumer is golden. So while these product ads were good, the storyline in each left something to be desired.
This week mrmerlot.com featured posts on the “best of” Super Bowl ads as well as the runners-up. In this final chapter, the truly stand-out losers are critiqued and lampooned.
Some ads you fondly remember for years. Some you forget seconds after you watch them. And some are remembered even though you want to forget them.
Put aside the strange etrade talking baby spots, the meaningless chatter.com ads, and the offensive-yet-underpromising godaddy commercials. Those were bad. But the ads featured here were so twisted and offensive that no exec should have approved them. But they did. So for your viewing horror, mrmerlot.com presents the worst of the worst ads from the game.
As it has for the past several years, the 2011 Superbowl XLV was half sports event, half commercial showcase. And, while some sponsors relied on celebrity cameos (for no apparent reason) or simply fell flat, the most memorable centered around creative and engaging storylines. In no particular order, the following were ranked as the best of the Superbowl commercials by Mrmerlot.com.
I read a post by Don Miller the other day that humorously petitioned for warning labels on gadgets. I have reposted the image he included on his blog because I found most of the “warning labels” funny and incredibly useful. What warnings would you want to see on your technology?
A colleague of mine posted this Chuck & Beans comic in the office this morning and I literally laughed out loud. As a constant and (insatiable) learner (just ask my wife), this nicely sums up my life prior to 1996 when I first discovered the web.
