Forget about the Super Bowl Ads

firebrandI admit it. I am sucker for a good commerical. I paid money to see the British Advertising Awards every year at the Walker Museum in Minneapolis. Now there will be a network on TV, web and mobile called Firebrand that will focus on the best advertising spots from around the world. The multi-platform network will debut tonight at 11pm EST on the Ion Television Network.

Firebrand features the most creative advertising, best video gametrailers and special promotions, providing a unique destination forcommercial culture. Firebrand programs TV commercials the way musicnetworks have programmed music videos. “Viewers are encouraged to ‘Opt-in,Search, Download and Share’ their favorite spots on TV, the web andmobile,” says John A. Lack, Chief Executive Officer/Co-Founder….Firebrand will enlist the aid of “Commercial Jockeys” or “CJs” who willguide the viewing audience through award-winning ads, exclusives,director’s cuts and never-before-seen-on-TV commercials. In its firstmonth, Firebrand will feature commercial celebrities like the Dell Dude,Ben Curtis, Capitol One’s angel, Jay Klaitz, and the young star of Mr.Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Zach Mills. Each will make a guest appearanceon Firebrand, talking about their favorite commercials, setting up spotsand sharing their playlists.

Flashback Video: Genius of Love

Atari

This weekend I have been thinking of the good old days of music videos and when they played on a station called MTV. Does anybody remember music videos on MTV? For all you kids out there, this was before your time and reality shows. Anyway, I thought once in a while I’ll dig up an old music video. Here is Tom Tom Club’s ‘Genius of Love’.

Enjoy.

The Future is Now!

Futurama

Finally the world is now right again…sort of. One of my favorite shows is returning as full length feature on DVD (now only if they can bring it back as a series; I can only take so much of ‘My Sweet 16th Birthday’). Futurama: Bender’s Big Score will be released on DVD late November. Here is the trailer to hold you over.
