Le Week Le 25

It's been a crazy week, this week, and right now I'm just waiting for this baby to get sleepy so he can go to bed. I will probably follow soon after. 

Let's jump right in with one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. I'd love to see a documentary about Manhattan. Maybe there's one out there. I've not actually checked...

These posters for the up and coming Batman v Superman film are very nice. I love the simplicity of the idea.

Now that we're talking about Superman, take a look at what Zack Snyder's Man of Steel would look like if it was in colour.

Do you like Hillary Clinton? Then you'll like her laughing. The internet is a strange place...

Happy Queen, sad Queen. 

The weirdest advert I've seen in a while. 

There are few things I enjoy more than a good ghost town, so in some ways, I can understand the want to leave this incredible collection of classic cars to rot in a forest. There's no denying the moss, leaves, earth, and rust all create a very real sense of history, and maybe even make a bigger impact than if the cars were kept, mint condition, in a museum. They kick start your imagination so much more, I think. Where were they used? Who owned them? What happened? How did they get here? All you have to do is stare, and let your imagination run wild. Beautiful.

To finish off, here are some babies reacting to the new Star Wars trailer (that was really very good). 

Have a great weekend, people. 

Oh wait, here's a good magic trick. 

Danish Anti-Speeding Spot

There's been a lot in the news about the Danish police increasing the number of speed cameras on Danish roads. This is a good thing, but there has also been a worrying amount of people genuinely unhappy about this. I can't for the life of me imagine why, but there you go. 

I'm a huge fan of this spot from the Rådet for Sikker Trafik (the Road Safety Council). The tag reads, "More speed cameras - lower speed - fewer accidents." What I like about it is the approach. It's so relatable and simple. No blood, no gore, no special effects, no crash - just everyday life. For me, this has far more impact than any other anti-speeding PSA, no matter how horrific. If you're honestly an advocate for fewer cameras, I'd love to hear what you make of this ad.
