Saturday Round Up — Fun & Interesting Things on the Web

7 Jan

Blog Post #259

This is a short list of a few things I came across through my usual web “research” this past week.

A Commercial Story

This ad, made by 26-year-old Eugen Merher — is a touching, commercial that depicts the story of a former marathon runner now living in a retirement home and his quest to “break free” while wearing a pair of old Adidas. Eugen, a student at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, sent his film to the company but did not receive a response.

An engaging promo that captures the strength of the human spirit and evokes an emotional response that people can completely relate to. Endearing and professional — Adidas, what were you thinking?

 

A New Year’s Wish

I love this quote by one of my favourite authors, Neil Gaiman.

Her Final Speech

Michelle Obama gave her final speech as First Lady of the United States. As always, her words were uplifting, kind, intelligent and well-spoken. I think that this woman is an amazing example of grace, strength, class, and leadership — an outstandingl role model for young women and an inspiration to all women around the world.

Listen to her speak:

 

Father Knows Best

I LOVE this video! This dad got it right — his morning ritual with his young daughter is so sweet, loving and empowering. An awesome way to build esteem in little children.  What a great dad!

 

A Sheepish Tale

And finally this is an adorable short animated film. It tells the tale of a shepherd who tries to leave his flock in their pasture while he attends a Sunday morning church service. Enjoy this cute, funny little movie.
