“The Fall” Makes Love to your Eyes

A long time ago, there was a movie called “The Cell“. It had Jennifer Lopez before she had kids, Vince Vaughn before he started doing dick-joke comedies, and Vincent D’Onofrio before he was on Law & Order and was only known for Full Metal Jacket. It was visually very strange, even beautiful. It was directed by Tarsem Singh—who pretentiously goes by Tarsem—and was his first feature-length film. I think the plot had something to do …

Continuing their holiday tradition, Old Navy has a new commercial featuring a great song by a female singer. This time, it’s a song called “February Air” by the band Lights. Here’s the ad:
and here’s the video for the song:
In my research I found that the band “Lights” is actually the girl “Lights”. And she likes triceratops. This is her (via her MySpace):

This music was created using only sounds from Windows XP and Windows 98. It’s a lot better than you’d think. I’ve listened to it a few times.

While I didn’t get to watch it since I was driving home after the game, the episode of House that immediately followed and was touted throughout the Super Bowl looked like a good one (I’m a big fan of the show.) I was also pleased with their choice of music. I already love the theme song for House which is “Teardrop” by Massive Attack (which might get it’s own post, it’s been used elsewhere.)

I saw a few good commercials yesterday during the Super Bowl. One that stuck with me was the following Playstation 3 ad:
