Published on December 19, 2012, by in Video.

I like how they worked in the receptionist from the “Michael” spot into this ad for PlayStation All-Stars.

Tree Rex just received as much billing as Iron Man and Spider-Man in this Target ad. Skylanders is bank.

Have they started selling those anniversary collage posters yet? (You can spot it at the very end, just before the logo.)

Speaking of unexpected genre-swapping commercials…

Published on March 30, 2012, by in Video.

Just like that super slick Tokyo Disneyland ad, here’s another unexpected swap of live action and animation… a really cool Adventure Time ad from Cartoon Network.

Tokyo Disneyland ad

Published on March 28, 2012, by in Video.

Man I love this. I love the hidden Mickeys, the churros, the better-than-you’d-expect mix of anime style and realistic Disney architecture. I love the specific milestones: first time, meeting a character, going with friends, discovering a ride, falling in love, getting married, and bringing the next generation to Disney. Just beautiful. It’s schmaltzy, sure. But that’s Disney. I’m certainly more moved by this than if the exact same concept had been done in live action… because this is far more difficult to produce.

Video: Mellow Brick Road (Wizard Of Oz Remix)

Published on August 15, 2011, by in Video.

This is a very, very nice animation retelling the MGM Oz movie set to a hip sound sample remix. It is amazing to me how the briefest of sound samples are unmistakably recognizable from the film. The music is from Pogo, the “Upular” guy, if you remember when that one made the rounds. Source: Cartoon Brew

Video: DCUO Fight for the Light

Published on July 22, 2011, by in Video.

Like the LEGO Green Lantern fig, I can’t help but expect that this is yet another long-in-planning initiative that was counting on the Green Lantern movie coming in as a blockbuster and not a benchwarmer. The “Fight for the Light” pack will cost $10. User comments relative to that price are not kind. I’m in, and the biggest reason is that the initial press info indicates that players might want to create all-new characters with light powers. That says to me that this pack will come with missions friendly to low-level players, and that means Single Player DCUO is back. And that’s all I need in a good MMO: single player.
