1. I Hope This Gets To You
After his girlfriend moved away for grad school, Walter wanted to create something special to express his feelings for her. He created a song and video with the band: Daylights.
Walter hoped that it would be passed around and get to his girlfriend organically. We like this so much that we invite you to join in the fun. The video has been online for less than a week and got almost 500.000 views.
2. Repeal DADT Message From Gaga
In this video that was watched 335,633 times since November 29th, Lagy Gaga (a very respected political activist) calls out to the US Senate to pass the bill against the Don’t ask Don’t Tell law. This law restricts the US Military openly showing their sexual preference for the same sex. 5619 people liked this movie, 247 did not.
3. Logitech Revue With Google TV – Kevin Bacon
It must be nice to play the role of your own biggest fan, but also somehow creepy to do. Kevin Bacon has been asked to do this to promote the Logitech Revue with Google TV. We see an everyday man in an everyday house with an uncanny obsession for Kevin Bacon. Nothing in the house has escaped from his obsession, from the paintings to the knitted doylie on the couch. He also shows us how the Logitech Revue with Google TV helps him to sustain his addiction. And although the video has been live since the 1st of December, it has already generated over 100.000 views.
4. Suck Your WHAT
Tweak Shoes wants its users to collaborate in the designing process. They ask this by using the help of a video starring Timothy DeLaGhetto aka Traphik in a true ‘smelly’ situation, combined with an interactive FB page. The video is up since dec. 1st and is already hitting 200K views. DeLaGhetto has around 650K subscribers to his channel. So, smart decision Tweak. This is the case, he arouses his GF to the point where she has a burdensome request. Will he suck her…WHAT??
5. iPad Is Amazing
