Did Wendy’s Steal Their Latest Ad From Local Thieves?

Some local hooligans swiped this bag of burgers at the Rutland Wendy’s drive through here in Kelowna and posted the video on YouTube. They assure me that it was a setup and that they paid for the burgers.

The interesting thing is that the latest Wendy’s ad campaign shows pretty much the exact same thing! You can watch that ad on the Wendy’s website.

Did Wendy’s steal this idea from these guys? There are similar videos on YouTube, but I couldn’t find any older than this one.
Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Thanks PromDizzle for sending this one in.

What Did Johnny Say?

Is Johnny Depp always drunk or is he just really good at playing drunks. There are parts in here where he sounds drunk but the character isn’t, maybe he’s been hanging out with the Hasselhoff.

Mean Disney Girls

Here’s a great mash-up of Disney “Princesses” and a trailer for the movie Mean Girls.

Wesley Snipes is OLD!

The Endless Night: A Valentine to Film Noir

YouTuber RubyTuesday717 put together this brilliant montage of film noir set to the song “Angel” by Massive Attack. I recommend sitting back and watching it full-screen.

Japanese Counting and Beating Game Show

I’m not sure whats going on here entirely but I think it’s this: The contestants who know how to speak English must sit in a schoolroom and watch a video of a non-English speaking man try to count in English without laughing lest they be beaten with bamboo poles and kicked out of school. That’s quite the premise for a show. I can just imagine the production meeting for this one, “No No No, we can’t beat them with a large frozen octopus legs, let’s use bamboo poles, octopus legs are a little too weird.”

Exploding Bananas

I saw this a while back, but it’s too good not to share. Basically it’s a video of a guy wearing a mask made of exploding bananas setting them off one by one.

Scuba Dog

This dog is prepared for whatever situation that heads his way.

    Ha ha. The name of the Wendy’s commercial is “You can’t fake real”. Hmmm
