Doner Illustrates ‘Epic Fails’ for JBL

Here are a couple of spots that actually demonstrate the functionality of the product they’re promoting.

This work by Doner of Michigan, launched earlier in the week, demonstrates the many (sometimes excruciating) pains caused by old-school headphones with their freaking cords.

Another one after the jump.

Doner Pays Tribute to Slim Shady in Portfolio Night 11 Teaser (NSFW Language)

Yeah, we couldn’t resist. Again, by sheer coincidence, we have another Doner-related item today thanks to this clip that dropped in our inbox less than a half-hour ago. We’ve already reported on Portfolio Night 11 and posted a couple videos along with it last week, but entering the ring now is Doner, which is celebrating the fact that the Motor City is taking part in the annual recruiting/portfolio review event for the very first time.

So, how else would one inaugurate Detroit’s inclusion into the festivities other than giving a shout-out to native son Eminem. Ladies and gents, we give you “9 Mile,” which of course pays tribute to the hip-hop star’s film 8 Mile and gives a nod to its classic freestyle battle scene but, yes, with a twist. Guess getting your portfolio ripped apart by Doner EVP/ECD Brad Emmett is just as humiliating as getting schooled on the mic by Rabbit. Credits after the jump.
