Parody of Army commercials

This is a parody of the army commercials. I highly respect and am inspired by the real seen on television and on before movies in the theater. At first I found this parody to be in good fun by using the same flashback narrative style to mimic the real army commercials. But as The parody continued, the level of disrespect to the men and women who sacrifice their lives for this country became disturbing. The creator of this video, while a skilled videographer and editer, used the power of visual communication in a direction that breached that fine line between humor and disrespect. While I would assume that the intention was to disrespect, it is easily possible for this video to to be just that.

Amateur special effects for humor

A few coworkers of mine were laughing at something online at work. I soon discovered that this amateur video was the source of all the laughter. It uses special effects to create humor.

How small can Macs get?

An interesting video on the future of MACs ;)

This video's entertaining devise is it's humor.

Infographic or Art

Network connections are displayed in this image to delight the viewer while informing them of the vast reach of Facebook. If an information graphic does not need to give specific information, then I would qualify this as an infographic. This image translates the expanse of facebook better than a never-ending list of countries or a number count into the billions. As art, this infographic is beautiful as is. However as an infographic alone, I would like to see some figures and facts, if nothing more than for assurance that this image is reflecting real data.

google dont be evil

This is a very intriguing video about the Google takeover.

This is a classic case of an irrisponsible use of visual communication to promote ideas and create trust that is as a thin eggshell cover-up to the deeper truth.
