FIFA Soccer 12 Matchups (video)

Posted in Comedy, Sports, Videos on September 24th, 2011 by Hyphen

Landon Donovan takes on (Bellevue’s own) Tim Lincecum above and (Richland’s own) Hope Solo takes on (British Columbia’s own) Steve Nash in these hilarious ads for the new FIFA Soccer game from EA Sports.  Kind of a NW feel to these ads, eh?  I guess that’s to be expected with EA’s FIFA headquarters in Burnaby and soccer being more popular in the Pacific Northwest than pretty much every other area of North America.

Nash’s dry sense of humo(u)r is awesome. “That’s a low blow…I worked hard for that degree.” That dude is the man.

In fact, when FIFA drops on Tuesday, I’m kind of tempted to cop a system just to play it whenever I can’t get on the pitch in real life. Looks crazy!

Kanye West – Robocop (1988 Import Version video)

“…your first good one, in a while…”

This is kind of a big deal.  Mykola Dosenko created all original graphics based on classic NES games for this unofficial video to Kanye’s “Robocop.”  Wow.

Spotted on Drop Bomb.

Murs on Freestyle 101

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 23rd, 2008 by Hyphen

Murs stops by G4 TV‘s Freestyle 101 and drops an ill video game inspired verse from off the dome.  Too many people these days think a “freestyle” is just a random verse.  I suppose the definition has changed enough that it can be, but I still maintain the true essence of it is to actually go off the top.  More MC’s need to remember how to do that.  My man Eddie would love the nerdiness of this video, but unfortunately he’s scared to death of the 8th Wonder of the World, aka Murs’ hair.

Swiped from 2 Dope Boyz.
