Re: YouTube Of The Day

Series of adverts blocked by the Swiss censor although I'm sure I've seen the one for Durex before (maybe just in the cinema)

The headline reads "Vor diesen Werbespots wollen uns die Zensoren «schützen» - eigentlich schade." (The censors want to "protect" us against these commercials - actually, a pity.)

On a similar vein one of my favourite ad's, no idea what it is for though!

Typical gratis newspaper... It wouldn't surprise me if none of these were censored anywhere on the world... They are English so obviously they weren't made for the Swiss market and a couple of these are as old as the internet!

I don't have to say that Felix is BSing you don't I? The first translation actually is "I prefer my beer lukewarm"... moderately funny, or fit for Swiss TV, if you want.

And now, another commercial:

Very cool, can't wait to see bands using this more.
As far as I know Bjork is the only one to use currently.

Sarah Silverman singing "I'm ing Matt Damon" on the Jimmy Kimmel Show

There has been a long running joke between Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon, where every time Matt Damon is due to appear on the show, Jimmy always runs out of time.

So this is Sarah Silverman's (Jimmy Kimmel's Girlfriend) and Matt Damon's response to that:




Now here is Jimmy Kimmel's response to that video:

Stumbled upon this one. The stuff of boyhood memories. Teenage Elle McPherson in a 1982 Australian TAB cola commercial.

Re: YouTube Of The Day

This video is from a 419 Scam Baiter, one of those guys who replies to Nigerian 419 Scams e-mails with a better offer for the Scammer. In this case he replied saying he was a Hollywood stunt man and needed to recruit new stunt men, of course offering loads of money. The scammer sent in these video clips of him auditioning for the part.

It is very easy to feel sorry for this guy (he clearly hurt himself a few times here) but remember that he was trying to steal money from innocent people, and has most likely succeeded in the past.

So that's where the saying "having a whale of a blast" comes from.

Excellent body check by Aussie cricketer Richard Symonds on a streaker.

Get that man some skates, if he can throw hits like that I'm sure ZSC could use him.
