What's The Worst That Can Happen?

Um...the Earth could fall into the Sun?

I see the title of the new James Bond film has been announced. It's Quantum of Solace.

Oh.

Spoiler Alert!

Sorry.

Talking of brilliant but flawed international risk-takers (see what I did there?), it appears that Rogue Trader Jerome Kerviel has defrauded his employer, the second third fourth-largest bank in France, of $7.14 billion. Société Générale, now the fifth-largest bank in France, holds no grudge against him and has only suspended him instead of sending him to sleep with the fishes giving him the sack. A union official said that Jerome "might have lost his mind a bit." Along with the $7.14 billion.

Thanks to Honey for bringing this online ad to my attention. Is this one of them virals we keep hearing about? Note how they achieved that burned edge effect.

Regular readers will know that I consider "rap" to be the only four-letter word in the English language that starts with a silent "c". However, I have to admit that I was suitably impressed to discover that that nice young man Curtis James Jackson III, aka Fiddy Sint(sp?), has released a "mash-up" to celebrate the centenary year of legendary Scotch accordionist Jimmy Shand. Word up! Respeck! Ect!

That ad thing was too cool. The objects moved, right? Or did that all just happen inside Bossy's head?

Mr Farty said...

Bossy - It's absolutely brilliant, innit?

Diesel said...

What the hell were they thinking with that title?

Honey said...

aww, I'm sure Fiddy's mama would be proud. Glad you liked the ad.

Mr Farty said...

Diesel - It's a Bond film - when did thinking ever come into it?

Honey - Cheers!
