Imagine Dragons “It’s Time” – The Occidental Saloon Acoustic Performance

I heard about Imagine Dragons a few months ago when a few SpaceX employees I knew were claiming the song “Radioactive” as their unofficial anthem before their successful launch of the Dragon Capsule; which went on to dock with the ISS in late May.

Since then Imagine Dragons has become a household name with their music finding its way onto some of the NBC Olympic ads, and further fueled by the news that they will have their first full length album “Night Visions” releasing in September.

Below is a great video of them performing an “acoustic” version of “It’s Time” filmed by the Occidental Saloon, which is a performance music video production group based in Provo, Utah.

Brilliant Tipp-Ex Ad/Toy/Game/App/Video Thing!

OK, IVDUB faithful, found something really cool for you here, hope you haven’t seen this. This is some incredibly clever branded content from Tipp-Ex that basically stretches across all forms of digital media. You can argue all you want about whether these types of things are worth it in terms of ROI, but the bottom line is this: this is freakin’ genius. And fun. So check it out. Enjoy!

Call Me Maybe – Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders (Cover)

If you have known me the last few weeks you will know how much I have been a big fan of this song. Now, it has become perfect…

Watch Dogs – Video Game Demo [US] / This Looks Crisp!

This is one of the best demo video’s I have seen in quite a while. I have heard nothing about this game until today but it looks like it is going to kill it! It’s been too long since we have seen something truly original in the video game marketplace and with a year chocked full of sequels of sequels of your uncles-brothers-sequel Watch Dogs looks refreshing as shit!

Walk off the Earth – Stubb’s Austin – June 2nd!

So you may remember my post from a few months back talking about the incredible cover of Somebody That I Used to Know that a band called Walk off the Earth covered. Well if you have been itching to see them ever since like I have and you are going to be in the Austin, Texas area tomorrow evening you should go out around 7:00-ish and see them play at Stubb’s. Info HERE!

I have personally never seen these guys but they look like they would be a lot of fun to see live and definitely worth the super cheap ticket price of $15. Video below if you need a refresher.

Nintendo + Joel McHale + Acute Viral Awareness = Pure Honest Humor

Marketing for our generation has been rough, we have grown up in an age bombarded by marketing attempts at

every turn. Some find traction and take off; other fail miserable and we look back a year later and laugh at how ridiculous it was.

Viral videos have found traction and are now being exploited everyday so products and services can build up identity “overnight” by being associated with this famous person or that asinine clip.

Lately a shift has been taking place where we are demolishing the “third wall” and are blatantly screaming at the audience about how stupid they are for believing in viral marketing or rewritten screenplays for a quick laugh and a quick buck in today’s marketplace. The even crazier thing is it’s working! This viral ad along with studio films such as “21 Jump Street” are carving a new path where we are pointing out the obvious to the audience and then reinforcing the point to make them believe they truly aren’t being tricked. Genius.

The (Almost) Invisible Mercedes

This video blew me away as it encompassed all of the major interests in my life. Automobiles, Technology, Marketing, and Future Green Tech.

This is a great marketing ploy by Mercedes to get people interested in Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology, personally what I believe to be our next huge leap forward as far as renewable transportation technology. Now if only we can get the automotive and oil companies to release their death grip on the rights to this technology that will spell the end of the big oil company control of this planet. <endofsoapbox>
