The Conchords

Somehow I missed these guys on HBO but here is a clip of theirs on Youtube. The name of the act is “Flight of the Conchords”. Warning: My favorite video of theirs, “Business Time” was dropped from Youtube so I don’t know how long this one will be available.

Amateur Video, Candy, Diet Coke == $10 Million

These two guys in Maine took the fact that a Mentos candy dropped into carbonated soda will produce a gusher if done right and then proceeded to produce their own version of the Bellagio water show with 101 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 523 mentos candy.

Mentos estimates that they’ve received $10 million of free publicity from the video that has shot up the charts on YouTube. They might also do a deal with these guys as well. It’s amazing what a little imagination, timing and the Internet can do these days.

Snakes on a Plane!

Can you imagine a more campy sounding movie title? Well, it’s coming! Snakes on a Plane is coming on August 18th this year. I think we’re going to go at lunch from work. See the whole history here. Supposedly they went back to filming for 5 days to get a Samuel Jackson quote that everyone had been clamoring for.

I can imagine a great SNL skit take-off: “Bushes on a Plane!” Conservatives unleash the Bush family members (don’t forget Barb!) on a plane of unsuspecting liberals to try and take them down!
