You Know Me - Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams, my guilty pleasure. Not a lot of vfx, but man, this video cracks me up. Singing cabbages? Nice pull through the rabbit hole in the beginning. Is this on the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack? Parts of the video have that feel. I do like the song. I declare this will be a hit!


The Bravery - Slow Poison

This one is best watched full screen. Lots of sci-fi effects and laser beams. Woo hoo! It's a lot of fun and the compositor did an amazing job.... and I dig The Bravery.

I hate that AOL makes you watch a full commercial before the video. Seriously annoying. I'd link somewhere else but AOL has the premiere up today. Boo hoo.


A Christmas Carol Trailer

The trailer on Facebook looks a bit cleaner but there's no way to embed it. Be sure to watch in HD. The detail is unreal... just beautiful.

DJ Hero: Jay-Z and Eminem TV Commercial

My internet was down all night last night so I watched prime time TV which I haven't done in ages (hence two posts in a row about commercials). This is just eye catching spot, lots of fun.


Jameson Whiskey Commercial

So funny. They did a beautiful job on the color correction. Magic Bullet Looks perhaps?
