Little Black Book, a city and resources guide for creative folk? It only hits the same old international metro locations like London, NYC, Toronto, and so on. Maybe it's due to the ad royalty behind it, but really, not even San Fran or LA? Telling that there's no mobile feature? Well, that's the main problem. The other is that the Flash is real slow.

here and on nudeinascarf.com. (Although click that image for the best part, the model in the front row probably on Twitter: "Fuck sake. On another promotion shoot. Headed to the tube to dance now.") Um, and what is the use of that CHIPS soundtrack?
latest promotion where Absolute exchanged hugs for real stuff. (Clip post-jump, Twitter here.) Not sure it would fly here, maybe though:
"Hello? Yes, this is he. Yes, I know. Two months late. No, yeah, we were going to send a check out soon as we can. Yeah, I understand. Looks bad on our credit history, yep. Collections? Whoa, hang on for a sec... sorry, had to check with my wife. You guys take hugs? You do? OH, but not over the phone. Gotcha. Yeah, makes sense. So then, guess smiles are out. HEY. What about jokes. You take jokes? You do? Awesome. Okay, two bill collectors walk into a bar."
Wikipedians in San Fran, she's hanging back in Paris. Not sure if she's fully converted yet and become an American tourist-hating local, but I recently got to talking with her about the differences between internet life there and here in the U.S. Jerry Lewis never did come up, but David at AdPulp was kind enough to give us free room and board while we talked about the other differences between Al Gore's Internet and the Euronet version.
Kyle Andrews music video called Sushi. It's all technique tied to the rhythm of the song more than anything relating to the song's lyrical meaning. Wait, unless the feels so real lyrics actually does play off the artificial world of YouTube. But, YouTube is real I thought. Hmmm. So maybe there is a deeper meaning at work. Yeah, know what, just shut up and watch. Why?
Because that's a sick amount of editing here and sometimes a cool video is just that.
this short, be kind. SNL's Michaela Watkins plays a low budget Mother Nature in the fight between man and, um, nature.
Season in the Balance. (I'm saying that a lot lately. Web series is the new last year's YouTube contest?) Anyway, nice series about a high school lacrosse team, (The Canandaigua Braves), that were given $60,000 worth of gear and then followed around and recorded. (See clip after the jump.) Production quality is as good if not better than the usual reality fare. Props to Momentum Worldwide and Tangerine Films. No cell phone quality footage of cafeteria fights. (Maybe on the DVD extras.) Think Friday Night Lights with lacrosse sticks.

launch work from Legs channels everyone from David Lynch to Led Zep for Diesel's new scent Only the Brave, (with accompanying site isbrave.com). According to the background on the project, there were three themes of "Heart," "Mind" and "Nerve" as described by Legs: "Although all the films stand alone in their own way, the real magic appears when the films are played as a triptych. The triptych was always the main idea and we knew that the Heart and Nerve stories would serve as visual punctuation for what the center Mind piece was saying. It made a lot of sense to us that the Mind piece would be the conduit and narrate the whole piece, while Nerve and Heart served more as visual poems."
Actually, that would be fairly lucid for David lynch. Yeah, this is more like the David I know.
OK, you all know here at Adrants we are fans of anything that's weird, wacky and wrong. But this Silk Soft-sponsored Danish toilet paper dispenser toilet dispenser is beyond wrong. Beyond wrong on so many levels. First, it's gross. Second, pulling toilet paper out of someone's ass pretty much guarantees it's going to have shit all over it already. And third, it'll make people puke causing the invention of a puke whole on the bathroom floor that, yes, will graphically represent the mouth of a person puking right back at you.
To demonstrate gratitude to the US troops fighting overseas -- and encourage other people to do it, too -- musician Astara Mink came up with "Mr. Trooper," a smoky, sugary-sweet '40s-style anthem.
The video was done pro-bono and directed by Scott McCullough. It features five all-American sex kittens (including Mink) that occasionally wear teeny little polos, and other times wear nothing but the Stars and Stripes. They do things like simper and dance in tandem. There's even one of those scenes where they lie on the ground and make snowflake shapes with their legs.
Families with a soldier of their own can buy a Mr. Trooper video here. As for the heterosexual female troops, we're sure somebody's coming up with a showtune for you too. Well ... don't hold us to that.
