Greenpeace Rebel Scum use The Force to target Volkswagen

Just when you thought the Commercial Force couldn't get any wackier....

Greenpeace seems to have been inspired by VW's Superbowl ad but also has disdain for the car manufacturer.  They do believe there is still good in Volkswagen though.

Campaign site for it is pretty elaborate too:
VW Dark Side Greenpeace campaign website - Rebellion/Rebel Scum/yadda yadda

Hand-drawn Terminator 2 Music Video with Chiptunes

Saw this on ToplessRobot, only watched a few seconds, saw it was stop-motion and chiptunes -- SOLD!

For CE, please WL.

... Y U NO ...

Every cup of coffee contains its own soul made from paper stop motion magic

Was thinking we haven't see a good classic stopmotion project in awhile -  but sure enough, some stuff waiting for me in my Watch Later stack.

Because CA never really WL's, here's the link I was trying to send. Conan turning on funny

Techcrunch seems to be showing Conan videos a lot lately, and it seems like he's getting more geek-funny all the time.

Man, it's hot. Not like hoth, amiright? If only I had something to cool down with...

We don't serve their kind, but we'll serve *from* their kind. Be better with a battle droid straw.

You're thirsty! Am not! R2!


Neo's Nyan Cat Déjà Vu Matrix


Some total internet randomness in action.  Inspired by recent reignited Nyan Cat hype, YouTube Gold Idea #101 seemed easy enough to make a reality. haha

Pulp Fiction: Samuel L. Jackson Reads and Swears

Samuel L Jackson reads seminal viral children's book Go the F**k to Sleep.  This follows a recent trend of actors with epic voices reading stuff.  Though this is a bit more exciting than reading an iTunes TOC or whatever, Richard Dreyfuss.

Not to be outdone by a children's book, and if you want some more swearin' and cussin' - this post-production skill flex features all of the swearing and cussing from Pulp Fiction, with the rest of the movie removed.  Supercut indeed.

If you didn't realize pretty early on this stuff is a bit NSFW, well, realize it now.

Linking Robin Williams to Nintendo

So it turns out Robin Williams (and his magic hypno-beard) are avid gamers, at least console ones. For your entertainment, Wii would like to play with U:

Battle of the Bonds, James Bonds Stop Motion

Ever wonder who would win if Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig, Sean Connery, Roger Moore all better known as James Bond, ever got into a fight?

This is one intense/epic stopmotion vid.  The things you can do with action figures...(Robot Chicken)

Lady Gaga Magneto Youtube Parody X-Men: First Class

Trying to keep the subject line so freaking on topic that there is absolutely no room for humour, just to keep Mark Fuckerberg happy.

Direct quote: "the cheese is reat. which is why you should fucking put proper titles and upload descriptive image names."

Now, I'm not hip and cool and wearing turtlenecks, so forgive me if I don't know what is "reat" and what isn't, but I know I like a little humour in my blog titles.

Now, here's the real meat to this post. I present, without further comment, or at least not much further comment, Magneto covering Lady Gaga. The joining of these two makes some truly Bad Romance.

Darth Vader: I'm Going to Disneyland! Star Tours baby!

Disney-fied version of the Imperial March?  If they wanted to do some serious crossover promotion, they should have had the Vader kid from the Volkswagen superbowl ad.

Wonder if he'd go to Empire On Ice?

Seeing as we had all the smartphone tweets this weekend...

So, you can play Pong with a smartphone at McD's in Sweden - from a browser, not an app. Double Down, you're on notice!

Flippin' Tomorrow's Cheese - Grilled Cheese that is

Here's a story fit for The Cheese as we like to call it. Tech entrepreneur Jonathan Kaplan, famous for those Flip HD cameras that Cisco bought and subsequently discarded, is going into some new venture revolving around grilled cheese stores.

The idea is simple: customers visit a website and place an order for a grilled cheese sandwich (of which there are an assortment of varieties to choose from) and then a QR code of their order is generated and once presented at any store location, the order is whipped up on the spot - within a minute according to the plan.

George Lucas Strikes Back - epic fan trailer

It's another Star Wars post I know, but it's too well done not to. The true story of George Lucas' epic mission to find the man who made the prequels - and destroy him.
