Video: Pro Skater Eli Reed x Playboy “Lost Paradise” Short Film

We recently saw trials biker Danny MacAskill riding his bike through the Playboy Mansion and busting tricks, but now pro skater Eli Reed does something similar.  As you’d expect, there’s girls everywhere as Eli does his thing throughout the landscape.

Video: Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff perform “Summertime”

This is something we haven’t seen in a long time: Will Smith performing one of his record classics in front of a crowd.  While attending a pool party in Vegas this past week where Jeff was DJ’ing, Will got a crazy ovation when he hit the stage.  After a little talking and commenting on the weather (which probably was just a cover to buy time so Jeff could find “Summertime” to play), Will took off his shirt and went in.

Gotta shed a tear for the nostalgia.  Summer is almost over, guys.  Better enjoy it while you still can.

Video: Madden NFL 15: Madden Season (starring Kevin Hart and Dave Franco)

As the NFL preseason rolls on and Madden NFL 15’s release draws closer, EA Sports unleashes an ad which proves to be one of the week’s best highlights (especially in what will end up being one of the gloomiest weeks of the year).

Comedy ‘it’ guy Kevin Hart links up with James Franco’s younger brother for what proves to be an incredible must-see video.

'Dat Madden' drops on August 26th.  You can preorder now on Amazon, as well as the upcoming Xbox One x Madden NFL 15 Bundle.

NBA 2K15 soundtrack revealed


The cover has been revealed.  The release date is known.  As usual, one of the last anticipated gems that everyone wants to know about is the soundtrack.  This year’s playlist, which was curated by Pharrell Williams, doesn’t disappoint.  In fact, as somebody who has heard every NBA 2K soundtrack since they started adding licensed music, this might be one of the best.

“Scenario” by A Tribe Called Quest
“Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force
“Hot ‘n Cold” by Basement Jaxx
“River Styx” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
“Dangerous” by Busta Rhymes
“Grindin’” by Clipse
“Romantic Rights” by Death from Above 1979
“Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode
“Mama Used to Say” by Junior
“Doo Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill
“Team” by Lorde
“Aerosol Can” by Major Lazer featuring Pharrell Williams
“On & On” by Missy Elliott
“Spiderwebs” by No Doubt
“Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic
“Hunter” by Pharrell Williams
“Can I Have It Like That” by Pharrell Williams
“How Does It Feel?” by Pharrell Williams
“Shut ‘Em Down (Pete Rock Remix)” by Public Enemy
“Seventeen Years” by Ratatat
“Suck My Kiss” by Red Hot Chili Peppers
“Creator” by Santigold
“Drop It Like It’s Hot” by Snoop Dogg
“Set It Off” by Strafe
“Everlasting Light” by The Black Keys
“House of Jealous Lovers” by The Rapture
“Under Cover of Darkness” by The Strokes

Gotta give props for them re-adding “Planet Rock,” which was last heard in NBA 2K7.  That brings back tons of memories; 2K7 was the first game I got with my new Xbox 360 at the time, and I had a blast hearing the song on the main menu every time I was about to dominate online with my DWade/Shaq led Heat.

Overall, the playlist looks like it will be quite memorable.

Steve Ballmer is the new owner of the Clippers… finally

Donald Sterling has finally been exiled as co-owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, with the sale being approved and finalized to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

This is exciting news for Clippers fans.  Ballmer immediately becomes the richest owner in the NBA, so one shouldn’t expect decades of penny counting like Sterling did.  He wants to build the team up to new heights from day one.  Ballmer’s enthusiasm will surely rub off on the team’s fanbase, as his passion for sports will rarely be hidden while he’s attending games.  Above all else, the cloud that Sterling left behind will begin to fade away with time, but not as quickly as folks would probably like.  Shelly Sterling, Donald’s ex-wife and the former Clippers co-owner who initiated the sale, will remain with the team in some capacity.  Up to 10% of the Clippers’ revenue will be poured into a “charitable foundation” that Shelly runs.


Video: The Mannings become rappers for DirecTV ad

Caucasians doing rap isn’t new but it shouldn’t be confused with “the art of Caucasians pretending to be rappers,” which is experiencing something of a resurgence lately with promos from several companies.  With NFL preseason going on and the regular season weeks away, DirecTV enlists the aid of both Peyton Manning and Eli Manning for a music video-slash-promo-slash-guaranteed viral hit.

Expect to hear a lot about this over the course of the week.
