Commercial: A 1979 advertisement for Pabst Blue Ribbon starring Patrick Swayze

HIGH pants.


Video: French-Canadian ad for 1984 Dodge Ram

Now this is the shit I’m talking about. (And this is, I assure you, crazy talk.)

Links for October 28, 2011: Let’s play with Diamond Dave’s crotch

*Games: The Van Halen edition of Asteroids, Assteroidz, entails shooting bullets out of Diamond Dave’s crotch.

*Connectivity: The average smartphone user checks their phone 40 times a day.

*Fashion: I’m not really sure what’s going on in this NSFW “Les Fleurs du Mal” Agent Provocateur ad, but I’m pretty sure it should be made into a full-length feature film. Trilogy.

*ZZZ: Hive is an art installation by Kristiina Lahde of phone books that look like honeycomb. I usually throw my Yellow Pages directly into the garbage. [notcot]

*Headlines: Golden Fiddle linked to this headline, but it’s too good not to repost: “Kauai charger gets pantsed by Teahupoo monster during Code Red swell in Tahiti.” Every word is like a delicious burst of nougat.

*Rides: Be mesmerized by Forever Bicycles by Ai Weiwei.

*Film: Director of photography John Alcott talks about what it was like to work with Stanley Kubrick on “Barry Lyndon.” Personally, I found “Barry Lyndon” to be the perfect combination of well-lit and depressing. [coudal]

*Today’s links: F.

Video: Duluth Trading Company’s Ballroom Jeans

I am all over the Ballroom Jeans beat. (I tumbld about it the other day.) Apparently, Duluth Trading Company now has a commercial out for their Ballroom Jeans. For your testicular comfort.

Video: Chevy Volt dance

This is oddly compelling. My favorite moments are the backward shimmy around the :24 mark, as well as the various one-handed handstands.

Video: Weezer Snuggie commercial

Ad: Volkswagen rigs stairs to work as a piano

Video: Ketchup Bottle music (Heinz ad)


Video: Jam Wow autotuned


Video: NSFW Bontrust commercial

This commercial starts off in an incredibly soothing manner, then quickly becomes incredibly NSFW. Well, for cartoons. You’ll see. Will you ever. I mean, sheesh.


Video: Honda Insight’s Let It Shine ad on Vimeo

Go to Vimeo to watch this ad. It grabs you. [waxy]

Links for 4.21.09: Cloudspeaker, green porn, Anvil and Absolut…

*Music 2.0: I haven’t really poked around Cloudspeaker, but I’m trying to figure out if it’s a busier Hype Machine. [shorties]

*Green: We wrote about Isabella Rossellini’s “Green Porno” ages ago for the day job. Now she’s back with a series of films about how aquatic life does it. And by it, I can’t even say what I mean. At all. [cinematical]

*Movies: Anthony Lane, my favorite writer working today, gave the heavy metal documentary “Anvil” a rave review in the most recent issue of the New Yorker. [tds]

*Local: Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) singing “A Satisfied Mind” at Eau Claire’s Memorial High School. Who has two fingers and likes Bon Iver? [chuckles]

*Video: An ad for Absolut vodka, called “A vodka movie,” by Zach Galifianakis. Men. Wigs. [hotdogsladies]

*Apps: Capo is a $40 iPhone app that allows wannabe musicians to slow down tracks so they can learn to play them. I can play nothing, though I tried to learn the flute once. [daring fireball]

*Lastly: In place of today’s grades, an editorial comment. I hate City Pages.
