DuckDuckGo grows up, time to replace Google as default search engine

adidas "House Match" vs. Nike's "Home Game"

adidas just dropped a new World Cup spot featuring Zidane and Beckham going on a not-so-friendly match inside their house against Lucas Moura and Gareth Bale.
Well, it's a new spot for adidas, anyway. Let's go back to 2004 when Nike Football had a similar approach only this time it was Thierry Henry tearing up his house in some quasi fantastic world in which members of the opposing team knock on his door ready to play.

Toyota Camry Thrillride vs #NissanROYL

Looks like it's time to Badland the car bait&switch. First Toyota showed us the ThrillRide last year, where a track was built outside Magic Mountain, and excited roller coaster fans got to try being passengers in a "boring" car doing all sorts of un-boring tricks. The stunt drivers went fast, up, down, in reverse and the passengers all were surprised that Camry could be so exciting. Like, wow.
