I've been meaning to start a video campaign mocking commericials that don't make any sense. Many of the offenders are beer commercials, but it spreads far wider than that. Take this cereal commercial for example. I don't mind that they are trying to piggy back on the current popularity of dubstep. I don't even find dancing with teddy bears to be creepy in the slightest. My problem is that at the very end of the ad we see that the little girl had three friends sitting there watching her routine. [..]

He put out a call to anyone with an instrument to play a set of notes (he posted sheet music for various instruments) and then post the video. Over 1400 were submitted, from which he took bits and pieces and combined them into the epic collaboration that you see before you. If I had an instrument, I would ha [..]
