Escape your budget reality

KLM has taken aim at the tendency of budget airlines to charge for extras by offering travellers a virtual reality experience that allows them to see what it's like flying with an airline that includes everything in the cost of the ticket.

Share in the legacy of the Most Interesting Man in the World

The Most Interesting Man in the World recently took a one-way trip to Mars, retiring from his position as the mascot of Dos Equis. However, his physical departure from Earth does not mean that legacy has disappeared. As he travelled to the furthest nooks and crannies of the globe he left traces of himself along the way. And now the mere mortals who were fortunate to co-exist with the man of myriad adventures can get their hands on some of the invaluable items that touched his flesh while on earth. A new campaign launched by Dos Equis gives competition entrants the opportunity to win some of the items that typified the great man's time on Earth.

The search for the best

In a bid to ensure that FIFA players take full advantage of its Ultimate Team playing option, FIFA recently sent comedian Llyod Griffith on journey to seek advice on assembling the best team possible on the game. And the resulting 24-minute webisode is surprisingly entertaining for a clip based entirely on one man's attempt to play a video game.

It all sounds so credible

The rise of “wellness” products and services such as cold-pressed juice bars, raw and paleo eateries, boutique yoga studios and alternative therapies has brought with it a specific vocabulary. Some of these wellness words sound like science; some, especially those coming from Deepak Chopra, have the ring of religon, and quite a few are so divorced from meaning that they’re uncategorisable. After overdosing on YouTube philosophical debates one night, Australian web developer Seb Pearce wrote some code to randomly generate New Age copy at the push of a button.

'Buying activewear in my activewear'

Walk around the streets of many of New Zealand's urban centres and you're more than likely to see people on the streets, in stores and sometimes even on sports fields clad entirely in the latest activewear from the likes of Puma, Adidas or Nike. Viewed from a distance, it would be easy to mistake these individuals as veritable fitness freaks, doing the hard yards to get abs on top of the abs already have. However, upon closer inspection, it quickly becomes apparent that activewear serves broader purposes than just exercising. In fact, as illustrated in a recent satirical video by content creators the Van Vuuren Bros, activewear is often used for purposes quite contrary to getting fitter.

W+K aims to insert #ShottaSoCo into the zeitgeist with mad music video

Comedian Danny McBride and the creative team at Wieden + Kennedy have conspired to create an infectiously catchy tune for Southern Comfort that has every possibility to become the pre-gaming anthem of millennial across the US. As with all hit tracks, 'ShoattaSoco' comes with a music video—and it's utterly outrageous. Featuring McBride flying through a retro video game universe, the music video should be terrible, but you can't help but pull your eyes away from it.
