Not sure why, but I haven’t seen this video until now. It has almost 22 millions views. I watched it like10 times already and it is still hilarious each time.

The Expert

This video is so Fk. GREAT that I would not even know where to begin to explain how it is the exact mirror of any corporate day.

It is past funny, it is frightening how it IS the reality. At any give meeting, the chance of being surrounded by self-centered people absorbed by their own freaking agenda (almost) always outnumber the people being there for the greater good of the product.

It is a little gem, a masterpiece of irony at telling the absolute truth. It should be framed on a wall. Yes it’s that good.

All of us I think at the end of the day are driven to create, and that’s what really gets us excited and what drive us. The challenge with that is that in many cases, that can take over. Or at least it can cloud your judgement. You’re going to put in extra hours because you want to go the extra mile. And you’re going to try to push things as far as you can as an artist.

Each time I listen to someone talking about the extra mile they put because of their passion for what they do, I skip a heart beat. I’m so much the same.

If you want to understand how difficult the market is in the VFX, just watch this documentary.

If you own one of this card, I hope you have it framed. That was the future.

Breaking Mad Remix (Season 1 and 2)

This is SO EPIC. I think I watch this video every single week since it is out! And each time I’m still completely mesmerized by how great it is (just listen to it you eyes closed), and how also I miss this show. God do I miss it. The spin-off, Better Call Saul, cannot come quick enough.

The part 2 is also awesome, but this particular piece is an anthology to be remembered, as long as the show itself, meaning the eternity.

Life is like a camera… Focus on what’s important, capture the good times. Develop from the negatives, and if things don’t work out, take a nother shot.

Details matter, it’s worth waiting to get it right.

GoPro: Hovercraft Deer Rescue

Go Pro, there are just amazing. They freaking know how to stand-out, make a name for themselves, through the name of all their clients and what they believe into and love doing.

They do not sell a technology, but a way of living and being.

They are a brand like Apple is. Human.

This is a pretty big leap for any company and very few companies have succeed something like this. Just look at this video here, it has been seen more than 2.5 millions times already. A vast majority of their videos on their channel have more than 10 millions views, some even closing around 30 millions!
