Goats! Furby! Farts! Honesty! Paper! Hollywood! Soy! Shoes! Violence! Brent!

One angry goat; it's always the ones you least suspect; the curse of social farting; the joy of transparency; paper lives on; there's nothing new under the Hollywood sun; take that, Soy; shoes are boring; a guy who really wants to get out of the office; the return of Brent; fixing graffiti; old people wearing vegetation; and a cabinet carved to look like a digital glitch.

'Deep in your plums'! More cats! Bus love! Rick Rolling! Keys! Pass me a beer! Planes! Self-promotion! Ikea gets fruity! Self-promotion! Linkage!

Quite possibly the funniest bloopers you'll ever see; cats get their cream—and their milkmen; you'll never see more passionate bus lovers; Mad Men gets Rick Rolled; driving with the dogs; hey, pass me a beer; Grandads have the best tricks; Ikea embraces colour—and the power of dance; some smooth agency self-promotion; Intel follows up the Museum of Me with the musical of you; Facebook isn't manly; the search for the Higgs Boson; how going slow is a good business model; Simpsons chairs; and more billboard tomfoolery from St Matthew in the City.

Missing greatness! Food babies! Value! Britain! Goog! Sexy lollies! Death! Underground Korean hip-hop! Down under! Vocal locals! Other things!

We can't all be great, what could be the next logical brand extension of MasterChef, shopping like you've never seen it, the great David Mitchell on the not so great British public, Amstel's nicely told tale of the tape, another stunner from the Goog, lollies are sexy, the best death scene ever, a song so addictive it is "certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy", Telstra's Olympics promo, a man of many talents, turns out advertising is like S&M, novel greeting cards, the rather comical faces of Olympic diving, all you ever wanted to know about beards, a very bad idea, celebrating the sports Brits are good at, and something for those who love bacon to death.
