Some of these are just awesome, assuming they are all real and not some CGI-nonsense…

I like to think they are true enough, but you never know!

Anyone who watched A Question of Sport on BBC1 would have seen this clip already tonight, but I thought it so good I had to post it here!

The section of the show which featured the clip is called What Happened Next? and unsurprisingly each team is shown a clip which pauses at a certain point and they have to guess how the action progressed.

In this particular clip, the video was paused just after the football player managed to get onto the stretcher - do they always have to put themselves on the stretcher by the way?

Imagine in the old days (last year!) when F1 teams had a spare car at a race, Lewis Hamilton makes a poor start so deliberately cause a big crash at the first corner so that there is no choice but to red flag the race and for a restart to take place.

This would allow him to walk back to the pits, get in the spare car and then try again for a better start.

Ludicrous idea?  I think so.

Following on from the last post, I’ve got to mention the recent direction Cadburys have gone in for their latest adverts.

Of course we had the Gorilla ad a few months ago and now they’ve recently started showing the follow-up which is even stranger!

Plenty of viewers were put off by the ad featuring the gorilla as it had nothing at all to do with the product it was advertising so I can’t see this latest one getting a more positive reception.

Cartoons are excellent fun and come in all shapes and sizes - from little animations lasting only a few seconds to full blown feature films, and from crude hand drawn images to elaborate computer graphics.

Each type has it’s own merits and drawbacks, with films such as Shrek, Toy Story etc all being massive money making machines.

Historically, the personification of animals has been a huge source of inspiration for developing stories in these films even to the extent that traditional stories are retold using animals (albeit talking ones) as the lead roles in place of humans.  Whether this was done to create more appeal towards them, or whether the animators found it easier to bring these characters to life than a human subject I don’t know.
