As silly as this video starts off to be, it is important to watch and learn what is actually happening here. Pouring buckets of ice over your head means something to the 30,000 people in the US with ALS who aren’t being offered a cure. I knew the disease is genetic and terrifying, but this video breaks it all down in a way that is easy (also heartbreaking) to understand.
My co-worker sent me this video because he’s obsessed and now I am too. I can’t even tell you why.
I’ve always wondered how the BBC was able to get such amazingly beautiful up close footage of wildlife doing their wildlife thing. And this is how! It’s so cool that I don’t even want to tell you. Just watch for yourself. To me, seeing how they are filmed is twenty-fold more exciting than watching animals in the wild (which is an impressive feet).
Maybe I’d wear makeup more if I understood how exactly it changed the look of my face. So stunning and incredibly cool.
I know, I know. Ads can do crazy things, what with their over-the-top budgets, star power, and flexible format. And sharing them just plays into their whole reason for being. But this ad for Madden ’15 is just nuts, and even though I don’t care for Madden, or sports video games, or Kevin Hart, or Dave Franco, this video has so many absurd, funny, over-the-top turns, that I can’t help myself.
This is beautiful, original, and inspiring. I’d be willing to stand still for three hours to have my image live on hidden in the details of a painting.
