Benz runs down Adolf

Clearly, Daimler is furious about this, but it doesn't mean this student ad project is bad. Actually, it's really clever although it does touch on some quite taboo themes. This ad was produced by students of the Ludwigsburg Film Academy.

Daimler response:
"We believe it is entirely inappropriate to use the death of a person/child or contents related to National Socialism in an advertising spot, even though it is a fictitious spot."

The Master returns for Star Wars VII!

Have you heard yet? John Williams is coming back to score the soundtrack of the upcoming, Disney produced, J. J. Abrams directed, and as yet untitled Star Wars VII. The legend scored all six previous movies along with some of cinema history's most iconic soundtracks (Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones to name a few more). That's a really good start!

BBC blunders

Tonight, Top Gear concluded their final episode of the series (darn) with a wonderful tribute to British motoring. It was a dignified, uplifting, Elgar-esque (Nimrod-themed) affair. Even though one knows Top Gear is pro-British (for a rather international programme, watched by 300+ million around the world), one has to marvel at what Britain has to offer.

Best of British motoring lined up in front of Buckingham Palace
Oddly, directly after the emotional tribute, the BBC decides to air a show about the might of the German automotive industry and how it overtook the one in Britain. That's ridiculously contradictory... The programming director was either trying to be very even footed (as is the rule for BBC), or just plain mad. I'm leaning towards the latter...

Clarkson has come straight on to Twitter to share his displeasure:
What a shame...
