Quite Possibly The Most Epic Food Commercial Ever


If you’re a food commercial, and you’re not this new spot for Lurpak Cook’s Range, then you’ll need to try harder now.

The one-minute ad for Lurpak’s line of butter and oils is nothing short of epic. Set to Richard Strauss’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra” — the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey — it helps set the mood for a space exploration and discovery theme, that would make Kubrick proud. Please watch…

The Sound of Taste, A Video of Spice Bags Exploding In Slow-Motion


Looking to spice up your morning? A new commercial for Schwartz Flavour Shots contains a beautiful display of exploding spice bags.

And, this is far from just an excuse to blow shit up, as the fireworks are played in slow-motion and synchronized to music — creating what Schwartz describes as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape.’

The mix of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli and coriander also create a beautiful display of color and textures. Now, please watch this video of shit blowing up.

How To Change Your Mundane Life With Bacon


We all know the magical mind-altering effects of bacon. What we only sorta knew, until confirmed by this series of commercials for Maple Leaf Foods’ Ready Crisp Bacon, is that men will happily do chores around the house if mom makes them bacon. Even the pre-made stuff.

There’s even a fun chore list, just in case you need anything done by a mindless pork slave. Please enjoy…
