Oscar Ads (2015)

Forget the Super Bowl, man. This year’s Academy Awards telecast had three of the coolest, funniest and most heartfelt commercials I’ve seen all year. And best of all they came in one big beautiful clump up near the front of the show, you know, when people were still watching the Oscars! Here are my three favorite Oscar ads just in case you missed them. Enjoy!

“Love is an Open Door” clip goes viral

If you thought the pop-culture juggernaut that is Frozen peaked with the film’s two big wins at the Academy Awards or yesterday’s eagerly-awaited home video release, think again.

Proving that Frozen mania is here to stay, a new wave of videos featuring people singing and/or lip-syncing songs from the movie have gone totally viral. And this time, they’re singing something new. So, move over Adele Dazeem (aka Idina Menzel) because “Love is an Open Door” is definitely having a moment.

And while it may have all started with the charming, “good-looking couple” in the first clip shown above, the list of spoofs and imitators on YouTube is growing by the second. There are even imitators of the imitators…it’s crazy! But also, kind of totally awesome.

Long live the Frozen phenomenon!

WestJet’s “Christmas Miracle” video

Greta and I have already watched loads of cheesy, syrupy-sweet Christmas movies this season — if you’re interested, Lifetime’s Christmas in the City and the Bruce Davison starrer Christmas Angel were totally watchable, so, keep an eye out for them! — but nothing we’ve seen can hold a candle to the video Canadian carrier WestJet released earlier this week.

Entitled Christmas Miracle, the clip is all over Facebook and has been viewed a whopping 10 million-plus times on YouTube, so, you’ve probably already seen it. But, if you haven’t, grab some Kleenex and prepare to be terribly, terribly moved by the Christmas spirit. Enjoy!
