Beer ads are the funniest of all the ads. Here’s a fresh collection of short Carlton ads that I came across over at Exler.ru:
These reminded me of the one I saw years ago:
Which through me into a trip along the memory line and a whole lot of Budweiser Wazzup videos:
Which .. ah, what the heck. Here is my most favorite beer ad of all times:
Now I need a beer!
Here is something new I learned today. While reading the blog post on “Why You Need a Postmortem Process” over sysadvent (yes, it’s an advent calendar for system administrators, and it just started this year’s run), I stumbled upon the 5 Whys Wikipedia page:
5 Whys is an iterative interrogative technique used to explore the cause-and-effect relationships underlying a particular problem. The primary goal of the technique is to determine the root cause of a defect or problem by repeating the question “Why?” Each answer forms the basis of the next question. The “5” in the name derives from an anecdotal observation on the number of iterations needed to resolve the problem.
What do I think of immediately? Louis CK bit on parenting and kids’ ability to ask an infinite number of “Why?” questions:
Well, I guess, kids, much like me until today, don’t know that you only need 5. Or 6.
I’ve seen this video probably a hundred times over the last few days … and it is still as thrilling as it was the first time!
This video made me feel very, very old. Ancient almost. I grew up with Metallica and it is shocking to realize that kids these days don’t even know the band. Apart from that, the reactions are funny. New generation …
By the way, there are more videos in that YouTube channel (see the Windows 95 for example). Radio Nostalgie … :)
This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen recently:
It’s in Russian, but with English sub-titles. I’m pretty sure any company that has a portfolio section on their website went through something like this. More than once.
