The Most Magically Idiosyncratic Way to "Sell Out" Your "History," The Most Magically Lo-Tech way to Freak Me Out!

And by sell out, I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm hyper-stoked that Tay Zonday can be commercial even a little bit. He won a Youtube award. I've been freaking out about a bunch of things this week, and when I saw this today I had to get some of them out. This guy is the black Josh Groban, but except he immediately sold his hyper-repetitive song about black history to Dr. Pepper to make one of the most amazing commercials I've ever seen:



Original:



I want to drink Dr. Pepper really bad! Mostly because it's the most amazing soda ever. Man, I'm listening to the rest of this guy's songs - there's a certain profundity to them, I swear. I feel like I was just ear-raped by old man river. And then thanked him for it. You know, in a good way.

Second place for the best of the week is the story of David The Gnome/Mike's Arm just kicking it in Argentina pestering gardeners/searching for his garmonbozia:

This is one of the scariest things I've ever seen. This video phone capture makes the Patterson Film look completely retarded. If this is fake then it's fake on a JJ Abrams-worthy scale. Okay, I admit if I were a dwarf/midget/little person/achondroplasiac my entire wardrobe would be nothing but the clothing of every mythological or fantastical diminutive creature. Not just to imitate the career of Warwick Davis, but you know, to make people believe in magic again, and failing that, then just to fuck with them. But I don't think I would do it in the middle of the nite in the over-grown grass of an Argentine industrial sector, all freaky-red-room-crabwalking in the street lite. If this is just a short dude running around, he wins, checkmate, game over, I quit. Either way I'm never going to Argentina.
