Wäpnö -  "Tugga Gräs" (Chew grass) by Wäpnö Drängar (Wäpno boys) - (2011) Sweden

Can't be bothered translating the (rather funny) lyrics, but they're rapping about organic farming, locally produced and making milk products.

Occupy George - as in Washington

"Money talks" says OccupyGeorge who are stamping one-dollar bills with simple graphic info-slogans to help circulate the word.

Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America's daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because money knowledge is power.

At the Friars club where they've have parlayed one hundred years of antics into a legendary reputation, and all the walls seems to have hidden doors leading to Narnia, Rick Boyko was getting ready to be properly skewered by drinking large glasses of red wine and laughing at the bobble-heads made in his liking. "It doesn't even look like me!" he complained, making the same exact face as the skinny little bobble-head.

Mercedes-Benz - Unchained - (2011) :30 (US)

MPC's knack for making the impossible look easy is on full display once again, this time in a pair of Mercedes-Benz spots via Merkley + Partners and Smuggler Director Adam Berg. The MPC team put together an impressive array of motion control, CG and other effects for the new campaign.

Unchained features a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG four-door set in a nighttime desert, clusters of chains strung from the car's rear doors to nearby boulders. As the vehicle accelerates from a stop, the chains clang behind before drawing tight and yanking the rear doors off in a violent, slow-motion explosion of glass and steel. When the C63 spins to a halt, it has been transformed into a sleek two-door - the 2012 C-Coupe.
