Every country has its own particular way of playing football. For Spain, it's tiki-taka For Germany it's highly disciplined. For Italy, it's winning the Oscar for the best Dramatic Fake Fall. I kid!

Now you can be the bear from the Canal + spot

Do you remember the Bear form the Canal + spot?
Of course you do. it was one of the best spots in the past five years. By the way, Monsieur Ours has a name and it's Paul Bearman. So freaking cute!

Anyway, BETC and company have rightly brought him back for a very fun interactive site. In it, you have hte chance to Be the bear. It's a kind of Choose Your Own Adventure, but with you as director. Very fun.

Nimble Storage "It's time to retire your old storage" (2014) :40 (USA)

I wonder if there's a retirement home for old storage in Florida. If so, it's it in Boca. They might have another one in Clearwater. I'd rather think about this because I go into toxic shock if I think about puns.
