Ever Wonder What Happens After You Rescue The Princess?

So there you are drenched in sweat, covered in Koopa guts with your overalls scorched beyond recognition. You hurriedly climb the spindly stairwell to greet your prize, the beautiful, luscious princess. The one that you went through hell and back to be with. You swam through endless oceans filled with bone fish, jumped through precarious molten rocks, ash and eruptions showering down, you’ve navigated through haunted castle after haunted, terrifying castle. Your pockets are filled with coins discovered from question blocks and from the remains of your stomped enemies. Now what?

A wonderfully talented animation studio, studio joho out of Australia created this video to show just how real life can get with a spoiled, rescued princess in your life.

Superhero's Can't Hear Shit

Here are a few ads using breaking that sacred "cardinal rule of advertising": thou shalt not use superhero's to sell shit. This is of course very similar to my post a few weeks ago breaking the other law: Horror movie icons do not eat fast food.

I'm sure soon enough these beauties will be gracing the insides of a bunch of awards annuals (if they haven't already) and will make me super jealous that I have to include giant logos and ™'s and ®'s and all sorts of stuff that sully my awesome ideas. But that's life. All awesome work is done by foreign agencies and as spec work regardless.

Anywho rock on foreign window company, rock on.

Big Red Comparison

A classic commercial...

A shameless knockoff, or pure genius?

Musicians are So Fancy

Did you know that along with Ipod Nano's, flip cams, and tons of other great swag at this years Academy Awards, there were also cat food appetizers? Fancy Feast had a booth where they gave away samples of their latest appetizers along with suede cat collars, heart charms, and flipcams. And what did they get. Tons and tons of picts and promotion from musics hottest celebs. Hotness still to be determined.
Check it out.

Creepy Dude from Black Eyed Peas

Does Fancy Feast come in Smokey flavor?

Do you think he thought it was a little pitchy Dawg?

Lionel Richy says, I'm getting a camera for doing this right?

Justin Bieber is only doing this because he made some girls cat cry.

You know what, Linkin Park is still cool

Don't call me a Golddigger

"How many Appetizers do I get?" asks George Clinton

Toy Story 3, now with Down's Syndrome

I love Pixar and everything they do. In fact they started building great buzz for their latest flick Toy Story 3, months ago. Releasing a new character every week, until all the new toys were released. These included a glittery octopus, Ken, a flashlight bookworm, a toy that creates sparks (think old happy meal toys), unicorns, and many other throwbacks to classic toys we all grew up on. They even have a giant insect that hearkens back to old TMNT action figurines.

But then there's this one.

It's called big baby and I think it has mental problems.

Regardless I think it's going to be a fun Summer movie and make boatloads of money.

Coming Soon to A Fucked Up Movie Theatre Near You...

Video game movies generally suck. Mario Brothers. Jeeze. Street Fighter. C'mon. Doom. No Way. Heck, even the new Prince of Persia will probably suck. But this, this is something I don't think anyone expected when the words Halo and movie conjoined.

Awesome Acadamy Award Winning Short

Logorama, a crazy, hilarious, gangster, shoot-em up, indescribable short film. Take the time to watch this, it's definitely worth it.
