Cyberspace makes it easy-A A +A
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
IMAGINE if there's no cyberspace and that we're stuck with the traditional media such as print, broadcast, and radio. Life cannot be as exciting, at least not for internet savvy like us.
The advent of internet gives us an easy access to millions of videos, be it entertaining or educating, or a combination of both, (take Youtube for example), and not to mention the valuable information we can get on the fly.
Well, I've come across with so many videos in my cyberspace travels that are rather scary than entertaiing. However, that does not keep me away from discovering what's new in the internet.
Videos to watch:
1. Girls Don't Poop - PooPourri.com by Poo-Pourri (8,477,877 hits)
I know I've been ranting about ads and here I am presenting you an ad. But this one is one of the best advertisements I've seen to date. The ad presents an oil-based spray which you spray a protective layer of oil on the toilet water before you poop.
The fragrant oil forms an outer layering that subdues the fetid smell of your poop.
(Rating: five star)
2. Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy - 2011 Emmy Awards (187,344 hits)
Most of the time, it is either a photo or a live video of the nominees is what is shown when called by the presenters.
But the nominees for this category did not go for the traditional way. Presented by Rob Lowe and Sofia Vergara, the nominees showed up on stage and presented themselves like pageant candidates, which earned them a standing ovation. Melissa McCarthy was awarded the crown, I mean the Emmy. They gave her a tiara and a bouquet to give a more pageant appeal. "Holy smokes! It's my first and best pageant ever!" she said. Nominees Amy Poehler and Martha Plimpton were credited for coming up of the idea.
(Rating: 4.5 stars)
3. Torn by David Armand & Natalie Imbruglia (153,074 hits)
The classic 90's fave Torn by Natalie Imbruglia was given a literal action interpretation. I was all smile on this one. What I like about this is that there were no interruptions throughout the song like the ones I have seen on television. To top it all off, Natalie also interpreted the song with David! Props for her for adding the fun.
(Rating: 5 stars)
All these videos are afforded to us by cyberspace.
That's a wrap for all of you. Enjoy watching! For video or websites comments and suggestions email me at email@example.com or follow me on twitter @rjfl14
