Playstation 1

The good people over at Vsauce have put together a visually pleasing animation about the Playstation 1, which of course was a great console. The animation is filled with interesting facts, which may leave you shocked!

Reconstructed One Direction comments

We all know One Direction fans are a strange bunch, and make sure they get angry at anyone who disagrees with their views. This video reconstruction from a genuine YouTube comment war between is simply hilarious, such a genius idea.

Of course the man who has mastered this technique, is Adam Buxton.

'Wrecking Ball' Scary Version

I have to admit this alternate and messed up version of the disgraceful Miley Cyrus' track 'Wrecking Ball' is actually a large improvement.

But of course, the girl is still an awful person.

KOKO Presents, Splashh

This week's episode of KOKO Presents featured the new and popular band, Splashh. We believe this episode is very strong; great interview, great live footage (from me, wink wink) and fun interaction with the crowd. Clearly the fact it was Halloween definitely helped.

The next episode will be very cool, we were lucky enough to film and interview Submotion Orchestra, so look out for that one.

What do you think of the episode?

Volvo trucks are now epic!

A good friend (and colleague) of mine posted this advertisement from Volvo on his Facebook over the weekend, and I was left speechless at how good it was.

You just have to watch to see what I am talking about...wow!

John Lewis 'The Bear & The Hare' - The Making Of

Last week I gave me honest opinion on the M&S Christmas advert, since then I have watched the fantastic animated Christmas advert from John Lewis (watch here).

Following the release, John Lewis have pieced together a 'making of' for the advert, it gives the viewer a great insight to the creative process, and understanding how things work in production. I was so glad to see the had used traditional frame by frame animation techniques for the advert, and not choose to use computer generated images. Cutout characters on card look so nice when animated.

It looked so good, and you can see by the crew's faces they had a lot of fun creating this video. Watch below, it's definitely worth the 2min 23 seconds.

The M&S Christmas TV Advert 2013

Yesterday the Christmas Advert from Marks & Spencer was released, and if you are British who watches a handful (and more) television you would know there tends to be a competition to make the best Christmas advert around the festive season.

Now this one from M&S is nice, however I believe there is far too much scenes of the leading lady, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with her kit off prancing around in her underwear.

I have been informed from Lauren, that Rosie has done a lot of underwear modelling for the store, therefore makes sense to show it off. However, I'm still not entirely convinced it was needed for the Christmas ad, perhaps just the one scene. Whats your thoughts on the advertisement?
