Kimochi-ii!

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

YouTube rules. How else could my friend Bruce have dug up this gem of a old Sega Dreamcast racing game ad? The video is pretty self-explanatory, but “kimochi-ii” in Japanese means “feels good.” This screengrab doesn’t do the ad any justice. Just click play; it’s 30 seconds guaranteed to make you smile.

Make sure you watch the whole thing: the punch line comes right at the end, and is worth the set up.

A kinetic sculptor.

I’ve thought for awhile that it’s a shame we don’t know who our current Rodin is – a sculptor that stretches the medium and teaches us something new. Perhaps Theo Jansen is our modern Auguste?
