Soccer Video of the Day: Nike, Som Un

If you are a fan of Barcelona, or if you want to get oddly pumped up for something, this video will do it. It’s not the sort of thing to get your adrenaline flowing, and make “Down With The Sickness” the soundtrack in your head. It is a sort of quiet confidence, a directed purpose, it is something quintessentially Barca, and their play shows it.

Let’s just hope they can keep it up and put Real Madrid to shame this coming year.

Soccer Video of the Day, Nike: “The Next Level”

This video is a little old, but I have not seen this in its entirety. It is from Nike’s lethal and cutting-edge advertising wing, which has pushed Nike over adidas in the soccer game, which shocks me even to this day.

The coolest part of this video is that it was actually directed by Guy Ritchie making the video ten times better as a result. That’s a scientific calculation.

Trendy Regression


So we all know how trendy it is to regress in technology. Good thing YUBZ is here to fulfill our latest craving. They allow you to talk on the phone the way you should, with a hand-set curved in a banana-like form.

It is also radiation free, and comes with a handy button to accept and hang up phone calls, no more confusing red and green buttons to deal with! Plus, at a low price of $44.95, you can also choose your color and really be an individual. Thanks YUBZ!

Tea [heart] Tokyo

Remember way back when, when our pages were blessed by the presence of designer Josh Tetreault? Well, I do, cause he’s the man. Turns out Josh sent me a little update of his most recent work for Tea and their new Japanese inspired clothing line. Josh has brilliantly captured the personality and fun-loving emotions of the kids and clothing, as well as coupling that with the inspiration for the new line of kid’s clothing. Hats off Josh, the video rocks.
