It Got Banned From Youtube??!!??

There was a video at the link below previously but...

This presentation actually got banned by youtube... I didn't think it was that bad?!?!

Download it and take a look for yourself

It was sexy an suggestive but not overtly sexual or demeaning

Apparently you can show bullying, stripteases and some of the worst oh human kind that generates massive debate and conflict and do people complain about those???

I guess not...

Shocked Accountant Says You Can Make Money With Your Pants Down!

Internet challenge brings about a cheeky response.

“My brother has always been a bit of a larrikin” says accounting firm director Susan Kelley, “So when he came to me with a tax question on money he might make from baring his backside on national TV, I was somewhat amused… then a little concerned. He’s the sort of guy who would do exactly that!

She is referring to a challenge issued by a website ( Basically you can win money by having the website name featured prominently and creatively on a large media source. It’s attracting the attention of those with a competitive spirit and a desire to get their name remembered. But that’s not all…

“A lot of interest has been centered around peoples backsides” laughed Mark Lewis of Famous By Morning. “It was not my intention when I put up the challenge, but it seems to have fascinated the exhibitionist in a lot of people, but it’s all in good fun”.

Lewis registered the site name and put it online mid 2007 and it seems he’s not the only one with a sense of the cheeky. The site is currently receiving a surge of interest to the tune of 500 hits a day and growing.

“People are using the site to laugh, wind down and relax after a stressful day’s work,” explains Lewis, “it’s about taking the best of youtube and my own filming and giving people some good clean light entertainment. Nothing too heavy, just a way to, if only briefly, escape from the pressures of the daily grind.”

Another reason for the site’s popularity is the ability to leave comments, invite friends and even add your own pages. “Giving people ownership and a sense of community is important to me”, says Lewis “it’s like one friend telling another a piece of good news, it just makes us all feel good.”

Some of the ideas are clever and interesting; others daring and outrageous:
One idea came about after a girl went shopping for a dress only to come home and have her partner suggest it was too short. So her friend who heard about the challenge suggested putting the site name on the butt of her dress. Her idea of a ‘silver lining’.

“The funniest so far was one guy proposing to be the “dot” in .com” laughed Lewis, “while his friends had the letters on their stomachs at the football, he made the dot with his… you get the picture”.

How Your Car Labels You

You learn new things everyday if you listen and ask...

or sometimes people just tell you :P

Was told this by the youth of today how the luxury car you drive (if you are lucky enough to have one) defines you:

Mercedes - Sorry... doesn't matter what model it's for old people to drive.

BMW - For guys it means you're a "player", for girls it means you're a "kept woman" (not my thoughts i'm just passing them on).

Audi - successful, young an hot businesswoman (guess what car my "informant" wants to drive :P)

VW - once again sorry... no matter the model it means "you're not getting any!"

Do Your Best Jagger!

now this is a great example (other than my own :P) of what youtube should be all about.

Excellent production values in respect to lighting, audio and composition.

It's funny as... always a big hit for me.

It tells us a story, keeps us intrigued all the way through and has a big finish.

I liked it, liked it so much I put it on adn it's the sort of thing I hope others will want to add to the site as well.
