The internet gives us many magical things. But around the time of Halloween is usually when weird dog people get really creative. It’s ok for me to say that because i myself am a weird dog person. My poor Bulldog has already been testing Halloween costumes, but none as good as the one below.
Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard are winning the internet race of awesome costumes by far. If you plan on getting ahead you’ve got some serious work to do.
This is… GAME OF BONES!
I have never been much of a beer drinker, until now. Flavoured beers have opened up a whole new world of braai-time fun in my house. I posted this picture on the GeeksDoingStuff Facebook group a few days ago and people seem to be in agreement that beer with a little Superhero flavour is just what this country needs 😉
Wonder Woman and The Flash beer would be fully stocked in my fridge at all time. ALL THE TIME.
Unfortunately these beers are purely a concept and not actually available for purchase. So i went on a hunt to find out if any other Superheroes are promoting beers that actually exist. Believe it or not i came pretty close.
Maybe not crime fighters but rappers are a close second in the ranks of just generally being awesome. One of my all time favourite Superstars is starring in the new Castle Lite Lime advert. Remember Castle Lite? Well they’ve added a new member to the Extra Cold family – Castle Lite Lime.
But I’ll let Vanilla Ice and Flavor Flav tell you a bit more about that…
With innovation at its core, Castle Lite have taken the extra cold experience to the next level with the addition of a lime infused beer to their product range. It’s the same green bottle, signature 2-stage cold indicator, grip and ice-proof label with added zest for intense Extra Cold refreshment. And of course, a revitalizing dash of lime 😉
I think it’s fair to say that Flavor Flav and Castle Lite Lime outdid themselves on this one. Follow them to see what they get up to next > @CastleLiteSA
Last September we worked on a very exciting campaign. By exciting i mean it involved Superheroes. Living the dream right?
If you don’t remember it check it out here. I don’t want to make a big deal about this (again) but my Bulldog may or may not be dressed up as Batman in that link.
That campaign was run by M-Net and this year they’re at it again. With comedy Superheroes this time! While most competitions require begging your friends for votes, M-Net Movies Comedy channel has taken a unique approach while showcasing its stand-up comedy festival this month.
How you ask?
With comedy. Lots of comedy. Four up-and-coming comedians. Four YouTube videos. Equal media spend on each. The comedian with the most minutes watched wins. So in a nutshell if your jokes are the funniest – people will watch all the way to the end of your pre-roll advert. You’ll soak up the most YouTube time and be crowned the most super of comedians.
These are the competitors:
Who do you think is the funniest? I think Lazola.
Remember to tune into M-Net Movies Comedy on channel 104 for plenty of stand-up on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm in September.

I haven’t blogged in a while. Between Retromedia, Girl Geek Dinners and the eStore my spare time to blog seems to have slipped away. But then the internet goes and brings me this GOLD to remind me that i should always make time for the things i love doing. Sharing ridiculous geek content with you lots is one of those things. So here you go, today i give you the gift of DuckTales in-acted live with actual ducks.
We all remember DuckTales right?
Now you go have yourself a great day!
I don’t really want to brag but @Jess_Obese and i are pretty much the best 30 seconds team out there. People try all sorts of things to take us down but we’re just too good.
We’re basically the two guys in this video… except we always win 😉
I think we’ve all had a 30 seconds experience similar to this video. I know a few guys just like this, i won’t mention names, but you know who you are.
30 Seconds is pretty much the most South African thing people like us do on holidays… that and take photos. And the Nokia 1020 is best phone on the market to actually take those holiday snaps with. So you can understand how these two things came together for one crazy digital campaign.
Tell better stories with pictures people 😉
Bane Cat is probably the most famous cat on the internet behind Garfield.
Being a dog person, i’m not sure what the internets obsession with cats is but i do see how the evil Bane voice and cats go hand in hand. Sorry cat people, you know it’s true.
If you missed the original episode i’ve posted it below. Because everybody needs to meet #Banecat!
Over 5 million views and counting…
Paddington Bear is the most kind and gentle fictional character i know. I loved his stories growing up and even had a real life teddy bear myself. That little blue coat, fluffy fur and and yellow boots… how can you not adore him?
If you feel the same way about Sir Paddington you need to look away NOW. The internet has gone crazy with a new meme called #CreepyPaddington – i don’t like it but i just can’t seem to look away. People are creating horror themed posters featuring a not-so-adorable Paddington Bear and sharing them on the internet.
Hide your children.
Happy Friday the 13th from #CreepyPaddington.
