Nike Finds Spike Lee’s Son’s Soccer Practice Exciting

Director Jake Sumner from prodco All Day Every Day, mixer Rob Difondi and Spike Lee recently dished out a short film saluting soccer. The film was shot at Chrystie Street Soccer Field in NYC, stars Lee and follows his thoughts and actions as he coaches his son’s team.

Spike is obviously very passionate and sometimes melodramatic when it comes to sports. If you’ve seen him at any New York Yankee or Knick game, you know what I’m talking about. Still, he is a very influential character to have on your side when looking to promote something sports-related.

In my opinion, Nike is very smart in choosing their characters to portray whatever it is they’re trying to pursue and this spot comes from an everyday person’s point of view, which makes it very connectible to the audience.

Craigslist Ad of the Day: Porn Casting Couch $5000

15234565-300x225.jpg

In the porn business, the casting couch is the equivalent to the creative portfolio. You open the book (your legs), let some out of touch skeevy-long-haired guy put his hands all over it (your genitals), and then you explain why you’re the best (wo)man for the job (proceed to have sex with yourself on camera).

And now this guy who bought someone’s porn studio is selling a casting couch that was legit used in a couple skin flicks, “Casting Couch Whores #8″ and “Let’s Bust Nuts on these Butt Sluts, Volume 7.” In retrospect, pretty decent titles as yanky films go. But buying a couch that was used by an actress named Holly “The Squirter” Wellins is almost always a poor choice.

This item has to go, says owner, “I am asking the discount price of $5000 only because I have to make space for a set for my upcoming production of ‘Gross! Point Blank.’” Get it? There’s probably poop involved.
