Terrifying Justin Bieber ‘Fan’ Video best thing on web today / this week / this year..

In a fit of unlikely manipulation of enamoured floppy hair lovers, the media biscuit du jour, Mr Justin Bieber (or the vilalinous puppet masters that manipulate the bewildered living child ThunderBird) have come up with another worryingly deviant way of reducing teenage girls self esteem – coming up with a fabaroo contest that furthers Bieber’s nauseating influence while getting fans to do all the work! All the entrants have to do is sing along to Mr Beiber’s song ‘Boyfriend’ and the winning entries will be featured in Bieber’s upcoming NBC Special.

Harmless enough stuff – until this unnamed entrant offered this terrifyingly intimidating version in a brilliantly media savvy and entertainingly alarming way. Rather than warble along earnestly in the hope that the hopeless Bieber might see it and ask them out in the way that so many other entrants have – this entrant has made it clear exactly what sort of girlfriend Beiber really needs. Humorously, not a million miles from the psychology of the music industry execs that spawned the gormless child beast on us all.

The best part is it’ll get twice as many hits as Bieber’s no doubt vacuous NBC Special but will never appear in it – causing pop culture driven execs heads to potentially spontaneously explode with the screaming sound of potential demographics not just missed but actively pointing and laughing.

I will continue to rant unless I stop there!! More of this Iconoclastic genius. If Chris Brown attempts the same thing might I suggest Tyson does his own ‘fan’ film about how to treat a lady beater instead of letting Bieber appear in a video with him….

… okay I’ll stop…. Enjoy the video!!

Assassin’s Creed Screenshots leaked onto the web

In Dan’s continuous hunt for infinite coolness on the web we found the ‘leaked’ screenshots from one of the most anticipated games in recent years.

A few days ago, news broke that the new installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed 3 — not to be confused with the actual third Assassin’s Creed game that didn’t actual employ the suffix of “3″ — would be set in the American Revolution. The Internet freaked out, because that’s pretty darn cool (or terrible, depending on which way you freaked out regarding the news). Today, some screenshots have leaked into the wild, and show the still unidentified main character walking around a colony, as well as skulking around the wilderness.

The trim on the character’s outfit shows up as blue in these screenshots, though the reveal yesterday showed red coloring — blue and red being the colors of the opposing forces in the American Revolution. So, one could speculate that there will be some kind of disguise mechanic where the main character can flip between both sides of the war. Also look, he’s going to shoot some game:

Considering America didn’t exactly have huge, sprawling cities like the ones found in the previous games, this screenshot of the assassin hiding behind some trees, following a group of red coats could be a sign of how stealth will be handled in this game. After all, it’s the Revolutionary War, home of guerilla tactics.

We’ll be paying attention to the series a little more closely than usual now that the setting has been revealed to be the American Revolution — it’s something that high profile games tend not touch, and it’ll be pretty interesting to see if some historical figures play significant roles in the game’s narrative.
