Things that get me through...

When work is beating you down, watch a video.

People send links to videos around to each other all the time lately. YouTube is so big Google bought them. It's like a viral marketing campaign - you never know what you're going to get. It might make you sick - it usually makes you laugh. People like to laugh. So watch and laugh if you will.

The first video is "Le Grande Content" - Turn up the volume a bit so you can hear the speaker's voice. I like the simple imagery with hidden meaning... like the toilet that pops up when talking about learning about death as a kid from your pet hamster.

The second is "Poodle Fitness" - One of a series of "fitness" videos made in Japan by Panasonic for the 2004 Athens Olympics. So in answer to your question - yeah, it's real. I think it's kids in costumes and maybe dog heads composited in there later. In my work-stupor I thought they might be real dogs or even CG dogs for about 30 seconds... but then I convinced myself that dogs don't have hips set up to work like that...
