    The Daily Online Video Fix: Sarah Palin Turkey Fiasco

    Yes, the election may be over, but the fun continues.  I thought for Thanksgiving, I would add this video which became an instant classic as soon as it hit the internet.  Thanks to John Rota for sending this out last week as soon it came online. 

    My lord, what a PR nightmare.  No matter how many times I watch this, I can not help but to burst out laughing.  And I still have no idea what she is saying!   This video just works on so many levels.  It captures the drama of life and death, it is a classic comedy of errors, it exemplifies Palin's "blissful ignroance", it couldn't be more topical and ultimately reinforces why this cooky governor from Alaska is not ready for prime-time.

    This holiday, I will be giving thanks that John McCain and Sarah Palin where not elected into office.

    The Daily Online Video Fix: Nokia's Branded Bruce Lee Ad

    Amazing how dead people are coming back into fashion.  This time Bruce Lee is hawking digital cameras for Nokia.

    Gandhi, Hitchcock, Einstein and the rest really had no say if they felt like being plastered over the world to sell Macs.    That's because they were all dead.      

    While the ethics of using this kind of approach to advertising is debatable, it always helps when the content is kick-ass.  Check out this amazing ping-pong battle.    I am still scooping my jaw off the floor.  I haven't seen anything this effective since the ping-pong VFX from Forrest Gump.   I just hope the estate of Bruce Lee is happy pimping him out...  Enjoy!!!

    The Daily Online Video Fix: Casanovas Web Seies

    Casanovas at first glance seems like your typical web series aimed at young males in search of no strings attached sex.  But Casey Casseday and Geoff Bunch's series quickly shakes off this stigma by having good performances, decent production value and most of all a sharp script.     You almost wish that the episodes were serialized a bit more so we can dig deeper with the characters.  At the moment, it feels more like really good scenes.  But hey, I'll take it.   I thought the episode below was really funny and well delivered.  I'm just waiting for the women to strike back and knock some respect into these galavanting man-whores.

    The Daily Online Video Fix: Future Shorts, Black Hole

    British filmmakers Phil Samson and Olly Williams’s surrealist short, THE BLACK HOLE, is one of those great universal tales about greed.   I don't want to spoil the hook, but the precise execution of tone, pacing and production is nearly flawless.  Another intriguing aspect of THE BLACK HOLE, is that the short uses no dialogue.  Therefore, it is can be easily understood by anyone who watches regardless of what language they speak - talk about a virally charged. This short is ready to infect the web.  I wouldn't be surprised if this hit 2 million views in the next week (it is up to 450,000 now).

    So, sit back, relax and enjoy!

    I am too anxious to write, but thought this latest political themed video was very funny, even if it was late in the game.  Hope you dig this Star Wars themed poke at the campaign.
