Evan Griffin happily lent his father his GoPro for the father’s recent vacation in Las Vegas. But he was in for a surprise when he saw the footage his father returned with. The entire trip was filmed with the camera facing the wrong way!
“So…gave my dad my GoPro while he was in Las Vegas, I did not, however, instruct him on how to use it,” writes Evan, “so my dad being my dad, and a culchie [i.e. a rural Irishman], didn’t know which way to point the [camera].”
After seeing the comical footage, Evan lovingly uploaded it to YouTube in a hilarious 4-minute video titled “An Irishman In Vegas.” The video has already garnered over 4 million views.
Along with a torrent of other comments, GoPro offered their own take on the video. “Classic dad move! What happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas.” [h/t boredpanda.com]
I’d go so far to say that I’m a YouTube beauty vlogger obsessive. These girls know how to contour, highlight, pluck, and cat eye better than anyone. For all the techniques of the trade, all the most seasoned say the same: mastering – or even coming close to approximating- the cat eye is hardest.
So you can imagine how things went when Cosmo magazine put a bunch of “Clueless Guys” in front of a mirror and make up to see how well they could work the winged liner on themselves. Each dude failed more hilariously than the next, all complaining of watering eyes, shaky hands and the inability to draw a straight line. Inexplicably, most of the guy’s liner ended up by their brows or on their cheekbones – I know it’s not easy, guys, but what’s with the full face paint? [h/t buzzfeed.com]
These playful ads are meant to encourage people to get moving on their bikes. Argentine agency The Community (formerly La Comunidad) created these ads for the Buenos Aires Public Bike System’s latest campaign to promote its new 24/7 automatic bicycle system.
They’re inspired by the spinning bicycle tire and depict rounded characters passionately chasing after the object of their desire. The campaign will be advertised in magazines, posters, subway-stations, and billboards as well as show up in guerilla advertising. It’s part of a program Buenos Aires began in 2010 with 3 bicycle stations and 100 trips per day. This year, the program will have over 200 stations and an estimated 11 million trips per year.
