It's All About The Roosevelts

Clever Taco Bell commercial promoting its value menu.
It's obviously targeted at young people. Not my demographic, but it's amusing just the same.

Billy Mays' Blue Balls

As America mourns the passing today of uber-pitchman, infomercial king, huckster extraordinaire Billy Mays, here's a video to remember him by. It's actually a dub of one of his commercials by Jabooodydubs.com. They've put new dialogue to many of Mays' commercials over the past year. Posted to YouTube on Sept. 12, 2008.

Fly Forrest! Fly!

"Forrest Gump" takes on a darkly comic tone with this mashup/remix video.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it features a scene from "Lethal Weapon."
I had trouble embedding it to One Stop Video, but here's a link. Or click on the photo above.

German presentation goes terribly wrong

This video has been bouncing around the Internet since at least January 2007. But it’s new to me. And new to lots of other people since it keeps getting reposted to video-sharing sites. (Another version is on YouTube.)
It shows a German presentation gone horribly wrong when the speaker’s inappropriate screensaver kicks in.
Unfortunately the origins of the video appear unknown as far as I can tell. This video from LiveLeak points to a Web site where someone purporting to be the speaker involved leaves a message in German.
The person writes that the presentation was a “nightmare.” He says he tried but couldn’t stop “this damned screen saver.” He says it was “by far the most embarrassing moment in my life” and affected his job and relationship with a woman named Sarah.
But the site is suspect because it links to a German novel called “Broscheks Optionen,” which seems unrelated. But I might be wrong. Despite my German heritage, I can’t speak German and the online translation programs are a bit shaky.
At least one version of the video is called “Peinlicher Bildschirmschoner,” German for “Embarrassing Screensaver.”
It’s unknown whether it was the man’s actual screensaver or he was set up as a prank, perhaps by the person videotaping.

Transformers 2: CGI Megan Fox Even Hotter This Time

A video from LandlineTV reveals what many men have always suspected: That actress Megan Fox is too hot to be real. She's actually computer-generated imagery created by some very talented and dedicated special effects animators in Hollywood. I knew it!!!
Here's the evidence. Enjoy!
Posted to YouTube on June 10, 2009.
Suggested rating: PG

Some of the footage from the LandlineTV video was previously shown in a video taken during an Esquire magazine photo shoot. That video shows Miss Fox making such mundane things as waking up and stretching, drinking beer and eating grilled chicken almost unbearably sexy.
The Esquire video (available here) was done as a promo for the June 2009 issue, which has Miss Fox on the cover. The video, "Good Morning, Megan Fox," features the song "Climbing Up the Walls" by Chris Cornell.
Suggested rating: PG-13.

TSA Gangstaz

Here's a video I stumbled upon while looking up the Transportation Security Administration for a post for Tech-Media-Tainment.
This raunchy rap video depicts TSA guards as bullies who make flying today a major pain. They’re confiscating booze and perfume for their own use and hassling passengers for the fun of it. Yeah, that’s about right.
Sample line: “I get your gold-plated pen knife, bitch, and that’s reality. You’d better lose your pre-9/11 mentality.”

I love this video. It's a remix of Disney's "Mary Poppins" with a techno beat. The digital artist who created it goes by Pogo and is from Australia. The track is composed of a sine wave bass, custom drum sequences, and sounds recorded from the movie. It's brilliant. Keep up the great work, Pogo.
