Beckham Into The Unknown

TheeBlog-Beckham_IntoTheUnknown Whether you are stressed or bored, nothing beats the joy of riding your motorcycle and exploring nature. At least that’s what I’ve heard, because I’m not a biker. So, what happens when you are famous and living in the spotlight like David Beckham, and you want to have some alone time to refresh and reconnect? Well, Becks decided to travel to Brasil (rainforest, to be specific) with a couple of his best friends, their Triumph bikes and cameras, to document their adventure and to show-off how he can still manage to look cool and hot (my wife’s words) even in the middle of a muddy jungle. Check out his documentary on Showtime.

Donovan’s World Cup

The day is finally here for the US as we face Ghana (again). And although we’ll be cheering and supporting our boys, we can’t help it… we’ll miss Donovan! – This better work Klinsmann… Donovan has always been the heart and soul of this team, not to mention, the most talented player we’ve ever had. But what I like most, is that he’s a cool dude, and based on his latest ads, he seems to be handling his stay pretty well… Let’s go USA!

The day is finally here!!! The World Cup starts today, so if you still have not noticed, you might be seeing a few World Cup related posts every now and then.

In order to celebrate, today we’ll combine World Cup and #ThrowBackThursday with a beautiful animation video by the extremely talented Richard Swarbrick, featuring great, classic goals from previous tournaments. Enjoy!

Adidas x World Cup

TheeBlog-AdidasWorldCup If you thought that Nike or Beats were the only ones releasing epic mini-film commercials, you are wrong! Adidas has also been busy creating spots for this World Cup. Unfortunately, they seem to always fall short when it comes to popularity and excitement. So, while Nike might have Neymar, Ronaldo, and company, Adidas decided to push ‘their’ players including Messi, Luis Suarez, Dani Alves, Bale, Zidane and of course, Beckham. Check out some of their spots and you decide if they measure up to what their competition keeps creating…

The Last Game

Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely spot by Beats, and although a lot of people were unsure if it had triumph or gained more attention than Nike’s original World Cup mini-film “Winner Stays(HERE) there’s one unspoken law in advertising. Never, never underestimate Nike. As part of their Risk Everything campaign, Nike dropped a new mini-film, this time animated, featuring iconic players like Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Iniesta, Howard, Ribery, and the one player that started it all, Ronaldo. Check out the lovely film as we’re only 2 days away from initial kick-off!

The Game Before the Game

Last week, Beats by Dre dropped a beautiful World Cup Commercial that took over the interwebz, featuring a team of international players including Neymar, Luis Suarez, Cesc Fabregas, (If you’re still not familiar with these names, get on it! The World Cup starts this week!) and a couple of guests celebrities and athletes like LeBron James, Lil’ Wayne, and Serena Williams. The Game before the Game takes us behind all the cameras and fame, and chronicles players – and fans’ preparations before a crucial game. And although the commercial was a huge success, according to a Ghana FA spokesperson, the brand has been banned from the World Cup by FIFA due to sponsorship (Sony) conflict. We’ll see what happens…

MIAMI x UBER

TheeBlog-UberMiami It’s been a long, rocky road. But after all the petitions, campaigns and efforts from all of us since last year (HERE), Miami has joined the 21st century as UBER has finally arrived. And although we only get UberX for now, this is a huge step in the right direction. This is great news Miami! If you haven’t experienced Uber yet, I strongly recommend you give it a try (that’s all it takes). To celebrate its arrival, Uber is offering free rides around Miami until June 20th, so experience for yourself what all the buzz is about. Oh! and if you can’t make it before June 20th, here’s a code for $10 off your first UBER ride pt4s8.

Iconic Movie Rides

TheeBlog-IconicRides When it comes to classic movies, there will always be lines, scenes or props that become iconic and representative of not only the movie itself, but of an era. Ask any 80s kid about a DeLorean for example… And speaking of rides, today I want to share a sweet series of iconic movie rides by Tel Aviv based Illustrator Ido Yehimovitz . The series includes movies like Kill Bill, Dumb and Dumber, Jurassic Park, and shows like The A Team and Arrested Development. Check out these great illustrations after the jump!
