This was a commercial that only aired ONE time before it was pulled because the higher-ups at Nissan thought it promoted "street racing". This commercial aired during the 1990 Super Bowl and was directed by Riddley Scott. Great commercial, great car!

Three years after the first tv-spot starring the alinghi this commercial named «dedication» is one in a series of three follow-ups. This time, I was not involved in the shoot. Nevertheless: A lot of the action shown in the new commercials are taken from original scripts written in 2001/2002. More stuff created by the same copywriter: www.arnevoelker.com

The imposition of additional fees for Internet content providers would unduly burden Web-based small businesses, start-ups, as well as communications for non-commercial users, religious speech, civic involvement, and exercising First Amendment freedoms. This is why organizations from across the political spectrum including Gun Owners of America, the Christian Coalition, and SEIU have joined Internet-based companies like Google, eBay, and YouTube in support for Net Neutrality.

Asian hawks DMC 06 routine Myspace.com/asianhawk myspace.com/thedisablists Scratching From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Scratching" is also a present participle of "scratch", and may also refer to a form of street art Scratching is a DJ or turntablist technique used to produce distinctive sounds by moving a vinyl record back and forth on a turntable while manipulating the crossfader on a DJ mixer. While scratching is most commonly associated with hip hop music, since the 1990s, it has been used in some styles of pop and nu metal. Within hip hop culture, scratching is one of the measures of a DJ's skills, and there are many scratching competitions. In recorded hip-hop songs, scratched hooks often use portions of different rap songs. Non-vinyl scratching CDJs, devices that allow a DJ to manipulate a CD as if it were a vinyl record, have become widely available. Vinyl emulation software allows a DJ to manipulate the playback of digital music files on a computer using the turntables as an interface. This allows DJs to scratch, beatmatch, and perform other turntablist maneuvers that would be impossible with a conventional keyboard-and-mouse. Scratch software includes Final Scratch, Mixxx, Serato Scratch Live, Virtual DJ, M-Audio Torq, and Digital Scratch. There are lots of scratching techniques, which differ in how the movements of the record is combined with opening and closing the crossfader (or another fader or switch, where "open" means that the signal is audible, and "closed" means that the signal is inaudible). The terminology is not unique, we shall employ terminology consistent with the terminology used by DJ Q-Bert on his Do It Yourself Scratching DVD. Scratching has been incorporated into a number of other musical genres, including Pop, Rock, Jazz, and Classical music performances. For recording use, samplers are often used instead of physically scratching a vinyl record. Rage Against the Machine (and former Audioslave) guitarist Tom Morello performs scratching-inspired guitar solos. In the song Bulls on Parade, he creates scratch-like rhythmic sounds by rubbing the strings over the pick-ups while using the pick-up selector switch as a cross-fader. This effect is created by turning one of the volume knobs to zero. Since the 1990s, scratching has begun being used in a variety of popular music genres, such as nu metal acts (like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit), but is most famous in the nu metal band Slipknot in some pop music (eg. Nelly Furtado), and drum and bass (eg. DJ Hype). Some underground and club DJs have derided the use of scratching in these popular genres as mere 'stage-props', to create an appearance or atmosphere on stage. Scratching is also popular in various electronic music styles, most particularly in hard-groove techno. Pop culture references During its "How It Started" advertising campaign, a commercial for Heineken fictionally credited the birth of scratching with an awkward DJ attempting to wipe off beer he had accidentally spilled over his turntable. The beatmania music video game series simulates scratching with a "turntable" on the side. In the video game Katamari Damacy, the King of All Cosmos speaks in record scratches. Scratch is a documentary film about the origin of scratching and its modern practitioners. In the anime Samurai Champloo, a record scratch is used instead of the common bleep to cover expletives, keeping with the Hip-hop soundtrack. In Meteos, the planet Luna=Luna has a hip-hop soundtrack, with dull piano music and record scratching for Meteos launches. "So What" is the first track on the 1959 Miles Davis album Kind of Blue and is often credited as one of his best works. It is one of the most well-known examples of modal jazz, set in the Dorian mode and consisting of 16 bars of D minor7, followed by eight bars of E♭ minor7 and another eight of D minor7. This AABA structure puts it in the format of popular song structure. The piano and bass introduction for the piece was written by Gil Evans for Bill Evans and Paul Chambers on Kind of Blue. An orchestrated version by Gil Evans of this introduction is later to be found on a television broadcast given by Miles' Quintet (minus Cannonball Adderley who was ill that day) and the Gil Evans Orchestra; the orchestra gave the introduction after which the quintet produced a rendition of the rest of "So What". The distinctive voicing employed by Bill Evans for the chords that interject the head, from the bottom up three perfect fourths followed by a major third, has been given the name "So What chord" by such theorists as Mark Levine. While the track is taken at a very moderate tempo on Kind Of Blue, it is played at an extremely fast tempo on later live recordings by the Quintet, such as Four and More. The same chord structure was later used by John Coltrane for his standard "Impressions".

The awesome song on those UBS commercials. There were three versions of the commercial; I picked the one with the least talking. Apparently (according to the people who commented on this) the song was composed for these ads. Unfortunately, the actual file isn't on their website anymore... but it would be here: http://www.ubs.com/1/e/media_overview/media_americas/virtualpresskits/advertising_campaign.html That one has a different song. Sorry :(
