Ad Sounds / The Asteroids Galaxy Tour for Heineken

by Ezra Remer

Despite spending 2005 studying abroad in a country where Heineken was the cheapest bear available, I still can’t stand the taste. That being said, my dislike of the beer itself doesn’t change the fact that Heineken has some amazing advertisements.

This Heineken ad by W+K Amsterdam is fantastic. Aptly named “The Entrance,” the spot uses the track “The Golden Age” by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour off their 2009 debut album Fruit. Check it out below…

Meet Roy G. Biv: Mellow Yellow

Recently green and yellow have both been in the forefront of my color preferences. I had a green iPod Nano, and now I have a green iPod shuffle. I am attracted to any yellow sundress like a magpie to shiny objects. I don’t understand why sick cartoons are always depicted as turning green. I’ve never seen one person turn green in my entire life, and it’s giving such a wonderful color a terrible connotation. Similarly I feel like yellow is also often considered a “sickly” color because of jaundice. When someone looks “jaundiced” they are faintly yellow. How sad for such bright, lovely colors. In light of such injustice, please enjoy a few tracks celebrating their awesomeness. Enjoy.

Get Your Body Moving: See You At The Finish

“What distinguishes those of us at the starting line from those of us on the couch is that we learn through running to take what the day gives us, what our body will allow us, and what our will can tolerate.” -John Bingham

Man, where would the catalog of inspirational quotes be without athletics?  Where would our athletes be without inspirational quotes?  Something to ponder on your next 5 mile run pounding the pavement to these tunes…
