2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

I just saw the BBC’s advert for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi = trailer for a really cheesy Twilight take of Game of thrones! When looking for images for this post I came across these very peculiar images of Clare Balding, Hazel Irvine and Jonathan Edwards. They most certainly have had a dose of the Twilight vampire effect. I don’t really understand why they felt they had to overly process the stills of the presenters. I’m not totally hating on the ad but for me it doesn’t beat the efforts of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Lamborghini Aventador

This month brings the release of the Lamborghini Aventador. Below is their epic yet totally ridiculous promo film that shows the Aventador battling against the forces of nature, in a Hollywood 2012 kind of way. The three-minute video was shot in the Californian desert, Coyote Dry Lakebed and directed by Ole Peters.

“the Aventador was named for a Spanish fighting bull from the breeding stables of the sons of Don Celestino Cuadri Vides. Signed number 32 on his hide, Aventador gained fame in 1993 in the town of Zaragoza, Spain after a notably spirited, bloody and violent battle with a torero that earned it the “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera” for its courage.” Good old Wikipedia

See the similarities!!! See Cusack didn’t even have a Aventador and he beat the forces of nature. Personally I still prefer the advertising style used for the 2010 the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster.

The Art of Flight

Oaft! This is going to be amazing…

Boarders Travis Rice, John Jackson,  Scotty Lago and Mark Landvik, among others, travelled to Alaska, Aspen,Chile, Patagonia, Jackson Hole, British Columbia and more to create The Art of Flight. This film looks like more than your average boarding movie, it’s in a whole new league of its own and I can’t wait until it’s release in September! Goose pimples!
