Volkswagen’s Jamaican Accent Will Put A Smile On Your Face
It feels like we’re featuring a Volkswagen video every week, but if you’re feeling down, this will turn your frown “da other way around.” The silliness of the entire ad, in which a business man’s happiness manifests itself into a Jamaican accent, will definitely put you in a feel-good mood.
What Happens When Hunger Makes You Go Loopy?
When you’re playing an important game, the last thing you want is for your coach to go loopy and talk complete nonsense. When your coach become as loopy as Robin Williams, that’s when you know your team is in serious trouble.
It’s Two Adorable Shetland Ponies… And They’re Wearing Cardigans!

Samsung Pokes Fun At Events Copyright Laws With Super Bowl Campaign
Copyright can be a serious problem. When a major event is on, nobody except official partners can mention the event by name and those who want to cash in on it have to come up with inventive ways to mention the event without actually mentioning it. Samsung’s latest ad pokes fun at this as Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk talk about the Super Bo… we mean, The Big Plate and ideas for the company.
Why You Should Always Put Your Big Idea Into Action
We all have a big idea, that one idea that nobody could have possibly thought of and will make us millions. Unfortunately, there are many people out there who think the same thing and rarely do they act on it. GoDaddy.com show the difference between those who go through with their idea and those who just talk about it in this short, but humorous video.
The Amazing Chinese Paper War Animation
This video may have originated from China (and quite frankly, we don’t know what the description says), but this is a brilliant video with high production values. The story is the usual two men see an attractive girl and fight for her, but it’s how they fight and where it brings them that makes this worth watching. Some truly creative moments feature here, especially around the midpoint.

Watching These Ink Drops Mix In Slow-Motion Is Absolutely Mesmerising
Here’s your relaxing Friday video. A filmmaker named Jacob Schwarz makes YouTube videos in 4K HD quality and his latest project is capturing different coloured ink drops as they swirl through the water. The combination of both visuals and music means it’s an absolutely beautiful video so if you’re having a frustrating or bad day, just watch it and let it relax you.

Diet Coke Brings Back Hunky Male For 30th Anniversary
If you ask anyone about ads in the 90s, most will reply with Diet Coke’s iconic Window Cleaner ad. It was a clever and powerful ad that worked for a number of reasons, one of which was that it featured an attractive male. Now to celebrate it’s 30th anniversary, Diet Coke has brought back the series with this gardener ad, which sees a group of women play a prank and get more than they bargained for.
‘Paperman’ Is The Most Beautiful and Joyous Short Film You’ll See This Year
That heading might sound like overkill, but after watching this film for the fifth time, it’ll take something truly special to overtake this. How can a short film be so beautifully made, emotional, fun and a joy to watch? How can a film with no dialogue and is only black-and-white convey so much in such a short space?
Disney’s Oscar-nominated short ‘Paperman’ does all of this and more. Not only is it beautifully made (the animation technique merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques), but the story of a lonely young man briefly meeting a beautiful woman on his morning commute easily outclasses the majority of Hollywood movies out there. Just watch it and prepare to be moved.
