Unfortunate because he killed his girlfriend :/

Nike-Oscar-Pistorius-Ad

If you had not heard of him before, Oscar Pistorius is apparently a South African guy famous for being a double below-knee amputee who won a lot of Paralympic medals for running.  To summarize he shot his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines day.  He was charged with murder, and of course now the incident is being used as a model for the “guns are too dangerous to have in the home” argument *eye roll*

Thoughts?

I’m excited about Skyfall… Coke zero in any form I am not:

The first time I tasted coke zero I thought someone was playing a cruel joke on me.  I’m all for minimizing caloric intake, but not when sacrificing taste.  Whenever I decide to drink a coke you can bet it will be the regular one… I don’t mess with that diet bullshit either.

If you haven’t seen the Skyfall trailer yet, watch it and prepare to have your mind blown.

Back to the coke zero Skyfall cans though… I’m just glad to see bond and some barrel rifling on a coke.

This guy is in the f**king zone:

I’m so sick of that “my glock gives me confidence to live my life” bullshit tagline.  In my opinion, whoever came up with that should be fired immediately.

Why don’t big companies ever do anything fun just to troll?  It would have been a perfect opportunity at 0:27 to get a million views on this video by next week if dude would have just loaded the last round of his magazine in backwards.   But nooooooooo… i’m sure even if someone over at Glock’s marketing department got over his or her fear of rejection and suggested such an idea it would be laughed at for days considering the potential liability issues.  Sure enough someone would die in a self defense situation and then police would find the first round backwards… the family would sue glock for a kazillion-bajillion^infinity dollars and then the company would go under.

Out of the few ads of theirs I talked about before this one (see: here here and here), if nothing else this ad is at least not as corny.  Thank god they laid off the Adobe After Effects text effects.

Classy stuff:

I want the truck with the virtual range.  

I bet they have to be careful where they park those things.  They wouldn’t want to be staying at some Days Inn in the hood, only to come outside in the morning to find all the guns missing, and the trucks up on blocks.

If I ever see them, i’m going to troll hardcore and repeadly ask them if I can see the revolver shotgun that they make.

Another commercial from Glock:

Everyone knows I love glock, but it’s become obvious that the Glock marketing department recently bought a digital SLR and learned about Adobe After Effects… or were sold the idea by a external marketing firm.  Both commercials so far were quite pointless. (the first one is HERE if you want to check it out)

I don’t really get this whole “Confidence To Life Your Life” campaign either.  Is that implying that anyone without a Glock is likely a scared little bee0tch? If so, i’m sure those sound like fightin’ words to a lot of people.

Thoughts?

Glock’s new ad directed toward Law Enforcement:

Interesting target market… I didn’t think there would be an American Law Enforcement officer that didn’t already know about the benefits of Glock.

Maybe Glock is losing market share to S&W and other polymer pistol manufacturers and they figured this would be a good way to win some of it back? I don’t know where exactly they are showing this commercial…  just YouTube? Maybe it’s on TV as well?

It would have been funnier if the commercial ended with the guy farting on that little ginger’s head. hahah

YouLiveYourLife.com hey? hmmm… what a useless page.  All that’s on there are 10 safety rules!  Why not just put that on the regular Glock site and drive traffic (buyers) there? *shrug*
