One of the most enjoyable things about meeting that special someone is finding out about their families Christmas traditions, favorite songs, and films. In the time since meeting my wife, I have found one her family's traditional Christmas videos to be an awesome rare gem. Rocking Reindeer Christmas was released by Good Houskeeping in the 80's and is one of those low budget "so bad its good" situations. In it you follow Blitzens scheme to make his way to the front of the pack of reindeer on Christmas. Not a bad plot, but the human personified reindeer do give off a bit of "furry" vibe. Regardless, my wife discovered it in its entirety on YoutTube, so I am posting it for your enjoyment.

Old Fashioned Training Videos

Anytime that I find myself under new employment, I look forward to any poorly made and out of touch training videos. Over the years I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. However, my current employer typically makes top notch training material so there is a gaping hole in my life from the wonderfully bad, and simply pitiful attempts by corporate America to pass along important business information in a fun and compelling package. The result is like watching a tone deaf rock star belt out the National Anthem(click this link if you don't know what I mean). Its painful but you have to watch. So here you are for you viewing entertainment, some real gems. I will try to post more later.

This first video from Mcdonalds is from a Found Footage Festival, so the commentary is not part of the video.

This one really gets good around two minutes, but please watch Dave at the beginning. Also there is a part two to this video you should watch as well.

This one is awesome because no one knows how to pour a fountain drink right? I geuss not since they pretty much leave that up to the customer now.

I'm not sure who should be more offended, nerds or women. This is a perfect Picard face palm moment.

A guy at work played this yesterday during my break. If anyone knows if I can find the original video, I would love to see it.

Flogging the Dolphin

Pakistani telecommunication officials have passed an order to bann over 1700 words or phrases from text messaging. These include words like flatulence, fondle, black out drunk, and flogging the dolphin. Most of the words are not safe for all eyes, but I'll let your grown up minds figure out flogging the dolphin for yourself. Its moments like these were you can really appreciate your freedom oyu enjoy here in The united States, because with bans like these we wouldn't outdated internet treasure like the always enjoyable Texts From Last Night. So go out there and drunk text, flog the dolphin, and be proud to be an American. You can read more about Pakistani text censorship on the link below.

Hilariously Bad Star Trek Mattress Ad [Video]

I have seen some pretty poor science fiction based local advertisement and fan films, but I recomend we give this guy the Jar Jar Award for 2011(my made up award for poor science fiction fan films). While the commercial sucks, the Trekker puns are awesome!
