The full Nandos “Dubious History” story revealed!

Awhile back I uploaded this sick ad I scripted, acted in, directed and edited for the current Nandos campaign which was awesome because it meant I could run around with my underpants on the outside in public (finally!).

The campaign is now at an end and the Nandos team have finally revealed the origins of its delectable peri-peri sauce and the epic story of the origins of that sauce.

So check it out and tell me, honestly, if you think it’s better or worse than the ad I shot (keeping in mind the bit I mentioned above about the underpants on the OUTSIDE).

Awesome Work Time-Wasters (Part II)

No sooner do I post the last epic work time waster than this total badass who goes by the name of Clive Robertson sends me a mail with a game that instantly brought on a flashback of when I was about 8 years old and I used to dick around on my dad’s 386 with Windows 3.1.

I think you know what I’m talking about here people.

ASTEROIDS MUTHUFUKKAHS!

 

 

Hit this link to check out this classic “blast-everything-around-you-into-tiny-bits-but-for-fuck’s-sake-avoid-actually-moving-in-any-direction-AT-ALL-COSTS” game all reskinned in shiny new graphics.

Some nice new additions I dug were:

What Happens When People On Boatloads Of Cocaine Make TV Ads

The advertising industry has a bad reputation when it comes to drugs, cocaine in particular, because it’s basically impossible to turn your creativity on and off like a faucet and that’s exactly what the job entails.

So you do a little blow from time to time (to time to time to time to time), you get crazy ideas that normal people don’t have the confidence to so much as utter under their breath in a room full of people and you shout those fucking ideas from the rooftop of your swanky loft apartment at 4 in the morning because FFFFFUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKK YYYYYEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

I’m At A Total Loss Today

I got pretty much nothing floating in the soupy confines of my skull today. The weekend was pretty epic for the most part but for some reason Sunday bummed me out completely so I hid under the blankets for most of the day drifting in and out of vague, unremembered dreams.

Later on I dicked around on the internet endlessly until I found this picture and then laughed for probably the first time all day.

 

 

Later masturbators.

It’s A Glorious Goddamned Day!

On days like today, everything, all the blood sweat and tears, all the hard work and late hours, all the frustration and drudgery is worth it.

Nothing in this life ever came easy, no siree. We’d never appreciate it if it did, it would just roll on by easy breezy and we’d be left with that ‘hm’ feeling that always accompanies a total anti-climax.

I don’t like writing about my work life on this site, but we’ve been working on something big that lands this weekend, like a gigantic disco from the future, and from what I’ve seen over the past few days, it’s going to melt faces guys, holy shit.

So, Howdya Like The New Digs?

Check it out guys! Fucking slicktiger.co.za, FINALLY!

I’m pretty excited about this even though all my content imported like total shit (all YouTube windows have reverted to non-clickable links, I’ve lost over 50 posts and all the songs I embedded to stream are gone daddy gone) because it’s the first step in finally giving this site a much needed make-over.

It might still look like the rusted old junkheap of a spaceship it always used to be, but you just wait.

Given time (and people willing to work for meatballs) we’ll clean up this new ship and get her up to warp speed before you can say “the Klingons are attacking Uranus!”

Treefiddy Review: The Kills – Blood Pressures

Ok, so I’m a little late with this one (the album officially launched in April) and for awhile I wasn’t going to write a review because once an album is older than a month it’s old news to cool kids like us, but I’m making an exception this time around.

 

 

Which is the long way around of saying this album is fucking awesome.

The Down Lizzo:

Alison Mosshart pissed me off when I heard her sing in the Jack White-lead supergroup The Dead Weather because it felt like she was faking it. Her vocal style and stage persona seemed contrived, something between Marla Singer and PJ Harvey, and it never sat right with me.

SlickTiger Industries presents: Awesome Work Time-Wasters!

Think about how much shit we can DO in one day thanks to the advent of the internet, emails and direct messaging communication.

I mean holy shit, what took our grandparents two weeks to do (ie. writing, posting and receiving a letter) we can now hammer out in literally 3 minutes and we don’t even have to use VOWELS mthrfkkr!

But where’s the goddamn upside I ask you with tears in my eyes? All that time that we’re saving ourselves, we just fill it with more work, what a load!

Baba Indaba Attempts World Record, The Tiger Throws Up In His Mouth A Little

We don’t have a TV so it’s been awhile since I’ve been exposed to the wonder that is South African television advertising and I’m a little sad about that.

I love SA TV ads because (with one or two exceptions) they are really, really, really terrible and almost always leave me staring in utter disbelief at the screen or canning myself at how goddamn retarded people are.

 

 

But on Saturday night I watched an ad so unbelievably unbelievable that the second it was over I jumped off the couch and shouted, “Did you just see that?! Tell me you just saw that!?” at J-Rab who nodded mutely, on the verge of lapsing into full-blown catatonia.
