Return to Snake River
But for me there was none cooler than Evel Knievel.
He was equal parts Muhammed Ali, George Best and David Bowie.
On a motorbike.
His biggest most ridiculous and ultimately most famous stunt was went he attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in a what was loosely termed a rocketship.
Truth be told it was anything but a rocket and the stunt failed. Sadly.
38 years later for some obscure reason Audi decided to recreate the Snake River jump to promote the Audi RS5.
With a 4.2L 450hp V8 engine under the bonnet the RS5 is obviously seriously powerful.
Whether it's powerful enough to pull off what Evel Knievel couldn't remains to be seen.
Makes for a cracking little video though.

My wife wants to know why I keep looking at my phone.
But I think that's 'cause she still thinks of it primarily as a phone not a pocket sized computer.
Anyway it seems I'm not the only person doing what is now termed Dual Screening.
Google have recently published a terrific preso on this very topic.
It's well worth a look my friends.

Lack of feeling
Let's go places.
Yep. That's it.
You're probably wondering who came up with it.
Well even though it is verging on underwhelming those three words are the result of a lot of expensive people at several agencies.
Yet that's right. Several.
Agencies involved include Saatchi, Dentsu, Conill, Burrell, Intertrend and a research company.
Bet it didn't take that many agencies to come up with one of the greatest taglines of all time.
Oh what a feeling.

Come Home Droga
He's highly regarded internationally and close to becoming a national treasure in Australia.
Problem is he's not in Australia. He's in New York.
Now a group of enterprising young Aussies are running a campaign to bring Droga home.
But long enough for them (and us) to show him some love and get inspired.
Come on people. Give these kids your support.
Visit Come Home Droga asap.

Really made me smile.
Hopefully they do the same to the many miserable faces to be found on the London Underground.

Scroll baby scroll
Mostly these belong to Uniqlo.
Yesterday I got sent a link to the site for the Nissan Note.
It's Japanese. And it shows.
No idea how they manage to make gimmicky stuff look and feel cool.
But they do.
And the Nissan Note site is no exception.
24 hours after I first saw it the novelty has worn off a little.
But it's still a heap of fun.
Click here. Wait a few seconds. Then start scrolling. A lot!
