Ultra Sushi-Go-Round, developed for the Oculus Rift, gives the viewer the full sushi ride experience. And, if you’re concerned that a slow ride around a sushi restaurant could be a bit boring, things get exciting and spiral out of control pretty fast. Literally.

There’s A Beer That Could Help You Look Younger Because Japan

young-beer

Beer, always known to help people look better, is now trying to actually make people look better.

Precious is a new brew that is marketing itself as an age-defying beer, by including 2000mg of collagen. The low-malt beverage, currently only available in Hokkaido Prefecture, also contains 5% ABV.

Although, there’s no evidence that ingesting collagen will be effective for your skin, you can at least try to look and feel younger. No goggles required.

This Ridiculous 1991 Sizzler Commercial Is The Most American Thing That Ever Existed

sizzler-video

Nothing says “Murica!” quite like freedom, over-the-top advertising, and your right to eat whatever the hell you want at a reasonable price.

This 1991 Sizzler commercial has all of these things, therefore, it is the most American thing to ever America. Overly-sentimental advertising with cringe-inducing voice-over… check. Hordes of hungry Americans huddled around an all-you-can-eat buffet… done and done.

But the greatest part, besides trying to imagine the original pitch meeting for this ad, is how this four-minute spot perfectly sums up an early 90s America. It was a country still recovering from the 80s — shown in the questionable fashion sense, a soundtrack for the tone-deaf, and heavy emphasis on value after the decade of excess. And, the steaks… Oh my, those steaks.

Please watch this…

A Billboard That Dispenses Beer Is The Best Form of Advertising

Recently, Coca-Cola unleashed a billboard that doubled as a soda fountain, dispensing its product to thirsty passersby.

Carlsberg, trying to one-up the soft-drink king, has created an outdoor ad that serves beer via a convenient ground-level tap. And, as we all know, if a beverage is gonna flow from a giant poster, we’ll take beer over sugar-water any day.

Appropriately-labeled, “Probably the best poster in the world,” the billboard was recently unveiled at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London.
