Doritos – Crash the Super Bowl Ad Entry

Doritos – Crash the Super Bowl Ad Entry

Well, ladies and gentlemen, you may or may have not noticed that our fellow Film School Web Series director, Jeremy Hyler, did not make it to the Crash The Super Bowl finals.  When I saw his entry, I thought it would be a shoe-in.  It was hilarious, creative, and just a little wacky, and that bit of wackiness is what I thought would be the trigger that would get everyone taking.

Maybe, I’m being biased since the cast and crew from Film School Series is part of the Pixelated Geek family.

But, in the end, at least it will be online forever for us to laugh at and enjoy.  A big pat on the back to Jeramy Blackford (Baby), James Huneycutt (Dad), Rebecca Bruder (Mom), Phillip Wright (Doritos Cruncher), David J Mack (Doctor) and of course Jeremy Hyler (Director). Job well done.

May The Force be With… Your Car?

Superbowl ads have already started coming out, and this one by far is the cutest.  Maybe that’s just because I’m a geek.  Nonetheless, it is funny and definitely worth a watch.  What is it about?  Well, to give you a hint, I actually knew a kid named Darth once.  Really.  (No seriously, I actually did.  There’s no joke at the end. Read on for the video though!)

Today Show 1994 – “What is the Internet?”

Today Show 1994 – “What is the Internet?”

It’s amazing how fast technology grows.

In a YouTube clip from the 1994 Today Show with Bryant Gumble, a puzzled Gumble starts asking what the “@” means.  Does it mean “at,” “around,” or “about”?

I was in the 6th grade back in 1994.  All I knew about the Internet was that it came in the mail on a floppy disk with ten hours free. It also made our computer make weird sounds.  Check out the clip to see how far we’ve come.

Why Does This Exist?!

Why Does This Exist?!

I have seen infomercials selling books and CDs on how to use Word, Excel, Windows and even eBay.  I have seen books called “MySpace for Dummies.” I understand that those people not technologically proficient enough would need these helpful tools. But now, people of earth, can someone please tell me why the following book exists?

Gamer Girl Explains Everything You Need to Know About World of Warcraft: Catackle-ism

Gamer Girl Explains Everything You Need to Know About World of Warcraft: Catackle-ism

I don’t know if the video below is supposed to be taken seriously. YouTube user, StormyLilac93, has recorded a very non-informative video to get us all ready for the release of World of Warcraft’s next expansion, “Catackle-ism.” Now, I know there are two sides to everything, and you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. On one side of the story, this girl probably doesn’t have a high reading level. On the other side, she just could be trolling us all. If you watch her other videos, you’ll see that she doesn’t seem like the smartest drawer in the spoon.

Japan really knows how to sell a game

Oh Japan.  Is there no end to your cuteness, awesomeness, randomness, and, of course, weirdness? In this Japanese commercial, you’ll see young Japanese teenagers playing Sonic Free Riders for the Kinect. The commercial shows how COOOOOOOOL and AMAZING this game is! It also shows how big and clear a room needs to be to play the game.

Enjoy the stereotypical ad past the break.

Gap’s newest logo becomes the art community’s newest joke

Gap’s newest logo becomes the art community’s newest joke

It’s kind of sad when a newly created logo for a very recognized brand becomes the butt of a joke.  Last week, Gap unveiled their new logo for their brand.  With a company that big, usually a new logo is seen and given a huge round of applause. But, instead, Gap received many boos and hisses from the art community.

To re-brand a brand, usually logos go through extensive research, concepts and versions that are done by a team of creative personnel. What Gap did seems to be the work of one marketing guy who just learned that Helvetica is an awesome font. But, then again, I’ve never rebranded a logo for that big of a company. So, what do I know.
