Fake Energy Drink Promotes Ibiza Nightclub Party


When you first begin watching this promotional video for Matinee, an epic party held at famed Ibiza nightclub Amnesia, you aren't really quite sure what's happening. At first, it appears you are watching a video game promo. Then it appears you are watching an ad for the energy drink, Ibizious. Then, when the scene zooms out and you realize everything you have just seen occurred inside the shorts of some hot chick, you just toss your hands up and go along for the ride.

Once you're outside the hot chick's pants, the whole things becomes an epic ode to the 90's complete with Thriller's zombie dancers, guys in muscle shirts, girls in high waisted shorts, all fueled by pulse pounding electronica.

Like the guy in this Samsung commercial who thinks his stuffed animal dog is real. That is, until he saunters by a Samsung Premium Monitor -- with its super awesome, life-like picture -- and realizes he might want to have his head examined.

Chemists Rap 'Buffet Table of Assays'


We're not a music critic so we can't really comment on the musical qualities of this LifeTechnologiesCorp rap battle which takes place among some chemists in a laboratory. But we can tell you this is the weirdest "commercial" we have ever seen for a chemistry company. Created by Wooshii, the video pits two lab-technicians-turned-rappers against one another in an all out battle over the benefits of two competing products: TaqMan and SYBR.

While we have no idea what TaqMan and SYBR are, viewers -- who are likely chemists -- are invited to vote on which product/rapper was the best.

Yea, you're mother.
