The Compendium: 23 August

This list of reasons why you shouldn't run over an old woman seems a lot longer than it needs to be.  

How passionate about Madden NFL are you? Probably not that passionate, since you're likely a Kiwi. Even if you really, really like Madden, you're probably not as into it as the guys in this spot.

The overt use of Samsung and Apple devices in this ad is sure to rustle some jimmies–Nokia is off to the school play to tout the camera on its newest phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Apparently some guy from Jersey Shore is in this spot. We wouldn't know because a) we don't watch it and b) we were too busy shielding our screens from our co-workers to look closely. It's probably NSFW unless your boss is really cool.

This movie is sure to be a hit among fans of such masterpieces as Sharknado and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

We know you have money, Samsung. If HTC can sign on Robert Downey Jr., there's no excuse for acting this bad.

Well, it may be a documentary about spunk trumpets, but at least it's available in 3D.

And in case you missed it, check out Hot Dogs or Legs?, our new favourite Tumblr. Hint: they're almost all legs.
