man these anti-piracy ads are getting really mean

quite possibly the best advert ever

Mmmm, now thats a DELICIOUS SANDWICH

I have often wondered where to get the best sandwiches in or around New York city. As I’m sure you have.

In fact, only yesterday I thought to myself, if only I had a way to gauge how good overall a Prosciutto and Mozzarella Panini from Bite on 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Ave., was. Alas, I feared the only way would be to tempt fate and try it myself.

Would it be good? Would it be bad? Might I infact fall over and die, it being that bad/good. Perhaps a giant hawk would swoop down from the very skies, swiping the aforementioned snack from my outstretched hand, leaving me in the great bind of being without lunch.

Thankfully, we can get around these issues with the site DELICIOUS SANDWICH DOT COM. What a handy site.

Now if only I didn’t live 4,209 miles away.

Microsoft Surface – Its a big ass table

Remember all those things you used to do with a small compact device. Well now you can do them with something the size of a car – and it costs $10,000. You’ll love it.

How to really get even with telemarketers

Just genius.

Best DUI ever?

Could this be the best DUI ever?

Why yes. Yes it could. (Watch it to the end)

would you employ these geeks

To prove that jay’s constant intake of cigarettes and alcohol don’t affect his running ability we had a little race at work.

Final Results –

Ok – yes Jay won. But he cheated. His legs are like three times longer than anyone elses, and Al will argue that his shoe came off, but we all know that he just threw it off his foot so he wouldn’t have to face that he’d come last.

Fruit Flinging

You may of seen the original Sony Bravia advert where they hurled thousands of balls down a steep street in San Francisco. Initially a lot of people thought it was cgi, but it turns out they really did do it.

For those that havn’t seen it, you can watch the advert here.

The advert was hugely successful and spawned a slew of imitators. One of these was one relativly short lived take off by Tango (Clear).

Now, its more likely you havn’t seen this advert. Same music, same concept though replacing the hilly streets of San Francisco for a street in Swansea.

Also, the balls are now fruit. You can watch this one here.

But thats not the interesting part. The interesting part is this website:

Swansea North Residents Association

Examining the site you can find various interviews about how terrible the advert was – how it ruined their lovely street, even how Aled Edward’s was late to work that evening because he had to wash the pulpy mess off his car. You just can’t make this stuff up.

My personal favourite is the video interviews with the shocked and angered residents. With this quote from this woman, being my favorite.:

Eileen survived both wars with the utmost composure, but couldn’t contain her anger when her home was bombarded by kiwis and citrus fruit.

I think I may just sign the petition, I mean, its their street today, what about tommorrow? These terrible TV types, will be flinging fruit down everybody’s streets. Oh No!

I guess its one way to get kids to eat fruit.

(I’ve got a slightly nasty feeling this may be part of a failed viral campain – I mean it just seems too lame to make up doesn’t it?)
