Lyrics, translated (where it has to be):
Surf surf surf surf - surfa Comhem Style
Surfa = "to surf" in Swedish.
När du skall surfa, stream film och ladda upp en fil
When you want to surf, steam a movie and upload a file.
Rent.com wants you to take back the dream, meaning the American one. In this homage to Apples 1984 a man is chased through a suburban street of McMansions by men in black, as he runs towards a glass house with a brick ready to destroy it.
Keir Dullea encounters a mysterious object, in a scenario reminiscent of the penultimate scene from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey that he appeared in over forty years ago.
Everything in this 2001 homage is absolutely perfect except Keir's shoes. They look comfortable. That's all wrong. Still, I think even the toughest Kubrick fan will approve, and even squeee a little.
This spec teaser was developed over a two year period on a shoestring budget. Live action was filmed multi-camera, against greenscreen atop a backlit plexi floor. Mr. Dullea was then integrated into an entirely digitally created CG set rendered at 1080HD.
Digital Domain built the entire KC-135 digitally after conducting an intricate survey of the actual plane, obtaining reference photos and the plane's physical dimensions, as well as researching actual videos of KC-135 plane landings. The digital production team, led by VFX Supervisor Eric Barba (VFX Supervisor on "TRON: Legacy") then worked closely with Kosinski to determine stall speed and the kinds of real interactions that would take place between the car and the ground to make the spot wholly believable.
Barba's team took care to ensure the tracking was just right, so the camera matches precisely with the live-action to maintain believability. Digital Domain also added atmospheric effects -- exhaust, heat coming off engines, and dust, as well as some sky replacement.
The mumbled prayers. The ticking clock. The grimy dark setting. The screams from the bedroom. It's all so spot on, the only thing that could make this any better was if it ran only on Halloween. Dirt devil, get on that please.
Microsoft's Bing ads are getting bolder. Here they demonstrate how Bing could have saved Thelma and Louise, had they had access to a not-yet-invented cellphone. And been able to reach the other side with that bold car-jump instead of plummeting to their deaths. Ho-kay.
Directed by Jake and Ryoko at Stink, post production magic by the crew at Moving Pictures and conceived by DBB London, the latest (real! honestly! not like that by now infamous polo viral which has dubious roots) commercial for Volkswagen Golf gti features Gene Kelly singing and dancing in the rain. He doesn't just dance though, he breakdances like mad, pops and flips to a modern club mix version of singing in the rain. The song has been remastered by none other than Mint Royale and will be released in the charts.
