Fancy some cathartic balloon popping to a speeded version of the William Tell Overture, while animated pop stars and pop culture references fly by? Have I got the ad for you mate! I spot the Nirvana! Nevermind cover turning into a bat having its head bitten off by Ozzy in here. I think I see Britney having babies too. Fun animation that hopefully will have us name-calling what we see in the comments much like we did in the Virgin's spot the band names, and the spot the song title commercial.

"Shooting a film isn't that simple - Canal+ supports those who make movies"
Aaah, we should make a flowchart for our line of work. Nicely designed, laughing hysterically at the porno movie flowchart bonus.
Spoek Mathambo has made a dark and moody cover of Joy Division's "Control" that seems to be the perfect photo-negative version of the original song, with dark where there's light and light where there's dark. Pieter Hugo & Michael Cleary have expertly added to the Joy Division homage by shooting Spoek in graveyards, preaching like a priest of the new era of dance music through a megaphone. With gangs of boys and girls who dance reminiscent of an epileptic fit, eyes rolling in their heads.
Since we're already banned by AdSense, I might as well post some music videos (and yes, I'm going to milk this all week, Google are überannoying to deal with y'all.) Here's J-Lo, the MILF in leopard spotted leggings doing her best cougar as teacher dance-routine to her new song that is a bit "my hump" and a bit PussyCat dolls "Don't cha" with some autotuner thrown in for good measure. Director Alex Moors and Nice Shoes handled all the color grading and VFX, while VFX Artist Rich Schreck led the beauty retouching team, and Colorist Gene Curley handled color grading making J-Lo come out looking really good.
Adfreak reports that this game won't even make it past the US borders. In the U.K. there's a game called We Dare is a digital spin the bottle of sorts, where you'll end up doing some pretty risque moves in order to win the game, such as spanking each other. *blush* My my! The ad aims to sell this game to couples, and is clearly targeting women. What happens when the cameras are off and the couples get real? They'll either get busy or simply cheat at the game, of course, you'll get a much faster spanking speed just hitting the controller straight up. Do'h.
