Cool Videos

Who knew that innovative software for a hospital could sound so sinister?

There's a new commercial from GE that is about the upgrades that have been done to their medical hardware that is sold to hospitals and it has none other than Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith talking about the benefits of the new technology. Of course Agent Smith loves the idea of connecting people and machines better. Sure it's an agent of good, but Agent Smith still approves.

It rubs people the wrong way sometimes when there are commercials like this that take a famous character and use it to sell a product/company but if the advertisement is funny enough I'll usually enjoy them. It's not like I'm going to run out and start buying GE products just because I like the commercial. Others may bitch that it's marketing at its worse (and maybe it is) but I enjoy geek references like these in commercials and they wouldn't exist if someone hadn't thought it up. Even if that person is (as Bill Hicks would say about someone that has a job in marketing) "Satan’s spawn filling the world with bile and garbage."

Red or blue?

Awesome. The Matrix seems to have disappeared, but it's nice that there are people out there still thinking about it. As for favorite commercial, I don't think anything can beat the Jack Bauer song from Japan:

I like the commercial....but it does entirely miss the point of Agent Smith.

Let's advertise our fantastic new life saving software program using the software poster boy for the annihilation of the entire human race

Extra tidbit: An old fried chicken commercial from Japan, I think, in which Robocop came out of the TV to eat the fried chicken that TV watchers were eating. It's hilariously awesome.

That's a great pick! It was Korean, here's the link: [link] That Mum really shouldn't be letting her kids watch RoboCop at that age (put on a different Verhoeven flick like Basic Instinct instead!)
