Wassup Advert - Then & Now... + Happy Days

Got home from Essen about an hour ago and started flicking through the last few days of Friends posts on LJ (haven't got very far and doubt I'll get to the end so please mail me if there's something I may have missed that I should have seen since Wednesday -Thanks)..

One of the things I've seen on a couple of friends LJs is a reunion of the Budweiser 'Wassup' advert team that was a hit quite a few years ago now. I found it brilliant - although very poignant considering all the problems of the last eight years.

Without furtehr ado... here are the original Bud advert and the new Obama advert...

The Original

The 2008 'Vote' Advert

I'll also throw in the Ron Howard directed 'Happy Days 2008' video that Ron (who used to play Richie Cunningham in Happy Days) and Henry Winkler (the Fonz) made to support the Obama campaign...


Old Friend

A New Kovalic...

A few days ago I mentioned receiving an email which made me smile all over. I couldn't say anything else at the time as the people in question hadn't mentioned anything publically about it and I was in no way going to blow that for them.

Anyway, a public post has now been made so I can also now publically extend my sincerest and warmest congraulations to John and Judith Kovalic and welcome their knewest family member Louisa Claudette-Marie to the world. She was born on Saturday 18th October.

John is one of the nicest people I've met in the gaming industry and I really can't think of anyone I'm happier to see have a baby daughter than Judith and John at present. Well done guys and hope to be introduced to Louisa next time you're in London :D
