He is currently in talks to reprise his voiceover role of Ted. Mark Wahlberg in “Ted”/ Universal Pictures “Ted,” which came out in 2012, starred Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, a Bostonian who wished upon a star for his teddy bear to come to life (spoiler: he did). The movie also…

The Danish Road Safety Council has worked with the Copenhagen creative ad company &Co to create a PSA that is quite amusing about how important it is to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle. Or even a horse. The ad takes us back to the country’s Viking origins where stubborn Viking military commander Svend refuses to put on his helmet before he and his clan go to conquer England, even though with his second-in-command adamantly suggesting to him it’s the best idea. Svend’s son rushes to him to give his father the headgear, but the mighty Viking refuses none-the-less,…

You wouldn’t think of stuffed animals mutilated by single-use plastic. Canned water brand Liquid Death has brought us Trashy the Turtle, Suffers the Seal and Wastey the Whale. These plush toys, called Cutie Polluties, were designed to raise awareness of pollution’s rising tide. With all things considered, it’s an interesting and, uh, um, “softer” approach than you may be used to seeing from Liquid Death. They trumpeted the dangers of plastic and…

5 years ago, Blizzard Entertainment released unto the world one of the best hero shooters, Overwatch. This game isn’t just about guns, it has a wide cast of characters who throw a wide assortment of projectiles at everyone for a period, and then start all over again. Overwatch is not a normal competitive shooter. It’s not…balanced. The characters are broken. Fighting any of these characters is a lot like fighting a final level boss, while you are still level one. It’s extremely disheartening and unfair. But Overwatch heroes exist in a six-versus-six environment, and they fight along with other heroes…
