Well, sorta. Using some nicely done digital trickery, they’ve been assembled to create this spot for RockBand – the Beatles edition. I’m a little torn on this gimmick, because I’ve seen it done so many times before – starting with Forrest Gump about 15 years ago. And I’ve seen it done better – this Michael […]

Not to be outdone by The Beatles edition of RockBand, Guitar Hero 5 has announced that you’ll soon be able to fake guitar jam as none other than the successfully suicidal king of grunge. Why do I not see this ending well? It’s one thing to use real footage of John Lennon and bring him […]

At an intersection, three guys holding signs would walk out into the crosswalk and display them to the drivers waiting at the light. I guess whatever works, right?
