It is time for a farewell.
It was a good run, but even all Great Things must eventually come to an end. The Old Spice Guy and his videos that led the internet community on a merry trip into the land of Awesome Viral Advertising has now come to a close. It was a glorious time. A time to be remembered and cherished. A time to reminisce when our joints are creaking and we’re called ancient rather than old. It was the magical time of the Old Spice Guy. Far better this choice too than milk it for all it’s worth.
Let’s hear it for the Old Spice Guy:
HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY!
Then to the news.
If you haven’t already, check out Batman’s Twitter account. The Caped Crusader seems to have nary a problem fighting crime and commenting on social issues.
To get slightly closer to being a rough-voiced, kidnapped, alien killing hard-ass… does not seem likely, but if you could, you could start by acquiring this sweet Hamilton Below Zero “Predator Black” watch. It’s the very same Adrien Brody wore in Predators.

Lastly – Machete. Machete! Seems like its trying to compete against The Expendables by hiring Steven Seagal and Don Johnson (and Jessica Alba who makes all movies she’s in 42,5 % prettier, but 23,7 % suckier). Nonetheless, it seems like the stuff Rodriguez does best, and I for one will most definitely be at the cinemas drooling over Jessica. Erm. Enjoying the film? Too late, huh?

If you’re interested in where Rodriguez originally came from and who he was working with, let me introduce From Dusk Till Dawn. Since its conception it has been a cult fan favourite. It also seems to be even more appropriate these days as it has proper-not-pansy-ass vampires in it. And Salma Hayek. The trailer does it no justice, but it’s below anyway.
