Rich Rodriguez, Arizona make great Keanu Reeves ‘Speed’ video

Rich Rodriguez speedThe Arizona Wildcats video team has done it yet again. Last year Arizona made a Western-themed movie that featured coach Rich Rodriguez as the new sheriff in town. This year they’ve made a video that plays on the classic thriller “Speed” featuring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.

The video mashes up the scene in “Speed” where Keanu pieces it together that Dennis Hopper has a video camera on the bus by noting that he mentions Bullock’s Arizona Wildcats shirt. What was funny is that the whole purpose of the video was to make fun of the proposed 10-second rule in college football that would prevent fast-paced offenses from snapping the ball for the next play until 10 seconds have passed.

Below is the original video clip from “Speed”:

And now I suddenly want to watch that great movie.

Player swings bat at opponent’s head during Cuban baseball brawl (Video)

A game in Cuba between Villa Clara and Matanzas on Monday night featured a terrifying brawl that could have ended horribly. According to Baseball America, a Matanzas player led off the seventh inning with a home run to give his team a 3-0 lead. Villa Clara pitcher Freddy Alvarez hit the next batter in the head with a fastball and hit another player two batters later.

At that point, the benches cleared. Demis Valdes of Matanzas, who wasn’t even in the game at the time, came charging out of the dugout with a bat in his hands. When Alvarez went after Valdes and threw his glove toward him, Valdes took a full swing at Alvarez’s head with the bat. Fortunately, he did not connect.

The umpires eventually got all of the players off the field and the game was delayed for more than 15 minutes. Valdes could have literally killed Alvarez. Brawls add excitement to the game and most of us enjoy them, but that bordered on attempted murder.

Woman boasts about running in the snow before slipping and falling on her back (Video)

Runner falls“It’s the perfect texture for running”

That is a line that will stick with Chelsea, the woman featured in the video, for the rest of her life.

The above video was posted by Deadspin over the weekend and went viral, but since it happened on a Saturday, some people may have missed it. If you missed it, make sure to watch because it is a treat.

A news crew from KOIN in Portland, Ore., happened to stop a couple who was running on the street. The woman boasted about how great the snowy weather was for running, so of course she ended up falling on her back after the interview concluded. The irony was so strong with it.

Deadspin caught up with the woman in the video — Chelsea — who was a great sport about things and appreciated the ironic nature of the video. She says even her friends and people she hasn’t heard from in forever contacted her after seeing it. Of course they did — that was a great moment in internet history.

Personal injury lawyer Jamie Casino creates most mind-blowing Super Bowl ad of all time (Video)

Jamie CasinoBefore Sunday, most people outside of Savannah, Georgia had probably never heard of Jamie Casino. By Tuesday, after Deadspin shared the video, the dude was more well known than Larry H. Parker.

Casino put together a mind-blowing 2-minute commercial that ran locally in Savannah at halftime of the Super Bowl on Sunday. The guy had more metal and special effects than a Kiss concert. It looked like we were watching a superhero comic on steroids. I’ve seen $20 million Hollywood movies that had less production that that.

Want to know how to get attention for your business? Follow this guy’s lead. Holy crap.

And Casino is not at all new to the TV commercial game. In addition to being a personal injury attorney, this guy doubles in marketing. Take a look at some of his other commercials below:

Frank Caliendo crushes this 30 for 30 Richard Sherman mockumentary (Video)

Frank Caliendo was just awesome in this hilarious 30 for 30 mockumentary on Richard Sherman. I mean awesome.

Some people like Caliendo, others don’t, but I’ve always been a fan. I like his content, think he’s funny, and love almost all of his impressions. But this was just next level awesome. From his Andy Reid to his Ron Jaworski and Adam Schefter and Chris Berman, he was great. But the best of all was his Jon Gruden. Man was he awesome at it. He seriously looked and talked just like Gruden. Unbelievable. I think he looks more like Jon Gruden that Jon Gruden looks like Gruden.

Seahawks fans celebrated Super Bowl win without jaywalking

The 12th Man was more than a little excited with the way the Seattle Seahawks played in the Super Bowl on Sunday. I’m sure a couch was being burned on some college campus in Washington and a car was being flipped elsewhere, but some Seahawks fans were beyond classy while celebrating. We’re talking don’t cross the street without pushing the walk button classy.

That’s right, a large group of Seahawks fans were careful not to jaywalk as they were partying in the streets. They patiently waited for a walk light to turn green and traffic to stop before crossing the street to hoot, holler and high-five.

I’ve seen Red Sox fans cross the street without looking after a midseason game on a Wednesday. Bravo, 12th Man. Except for that one guy who sprinted across early — damn jaywalkers.

Radio Shack wins with 80s Super Bowl commercial (Video)

Everyone I know who was watching the Super Bowl seemed to enjoy the Radio Shack Super Bowl commercial. And what wasn’t there to love about it?

It was Radio Shack recognizing that their image is one of having an old, outdated store, so they mocked themselves for it. Self-deprecating humor is always good, especially when you can mix in Hulk Hogan, the California Raisins, Erik Estrada, Mary Lou Retton, Alf and other pop culture icons from the ’80s. They also targeted a good demographic — those who are in their 30s and 40s who have money to spend on technology and can relate to all the figures in the commercial.

Well done, Radio Shack, well done.

And reminder to everyone: when in doubt, go with the Hulk.
