The Best Avocado Commercial Ever

Posted in business, funny, videos with tags , , , on December 19, 2009 by absurddelight

It’s an oldie but a goodie. Who doesn’t like a surrealist avocado commercial with a bonus shot of a pretty girl in a bikini.

@absurddelight has inside information that this video won first prize in an ad contest, raking in a whopping $2,500 in cold hard check. Not bad eh?

Here are a couple of the avocado entries that lost out: animated business avocados here, falling out of trees. Sadly, the full archive has been lost to the march of time.

Funny Sign – 99 Cent Store

Posted in business, funny, things i like with tags , , , , on December 4, 2009 by absurddelight

Sometimes signs lie to us. Sometimes they confuse us.

Sometimes they delight us with the effort that went into their permanent broadcast of meaninglessness.

For the record:  There were many items for more than 99¢, and though there were not any for less than 99¢, there were many that were 99¢ less than what we might pay elsewhere so that counts. But some items were, in fact ,99¢.

For this one, let’s start with the close up …

Sad Shopkeeper

 

Now, this is a camera phone pic, so its a bit blurry, but we assure you, there is no smile on that shopkeeper’s face.

If pressed for an adjective, let’s call him restlessly befuddled.

The Pains of Progress

Conceptually Terrible –> Zen Bafflement

Posted in funny, videos, WTF with tags , , , , , on August 9, 2009 by absurddelight

Another installment of terrible You Tube videos that are so bad they’re like a dirty procrastination pleasure.

Please note the special effects, the costumes, the crisp recording of the audio track. There is talent hidden deep within this seemingly pointless debacle of film.

Like previous WTF videos posted on AD, XXX-Mas Kitten demonstrates that an amatuer filmmaker can, in fact, invest considerable time on a project, develop true technical abilities, and still churn out a video worth watching solely because it is so conceptually terrible that the mind freezes with confusion resulting in a kind of Zen bafflement.

Enjoy.

Funny Email Chain for a Collection Agent

Posted in funny, open letters, stunts with tags , , , on June 9, 2009 by absurddelight

Geekologie posted a full email chain for a clever, but apparently broke iconoclast who repeatedly attempts to settle a back debt of $200+ by emailing in a drawing of a spider.

And when it isn’t accepted, he rightly demands that it be sent back to him. That’s pretty much all the progress he gets out of it. But if you enjoy reading mockery of debt collectors, click below.
