I’m always confused whenever I see Katy Perry or Zooey Deschanel. It’s really kinda crazy how much these doe-eyed ladies look alike and for awhile I thought they were the same person. Then I saw this picture:
Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry
OK. So, now I’m convinced that they are different people but I still get them mixed up.
Usually I go by the clothes or the cleavage. If it looks like something a grandma would wear it is most likely Zooey. If there are 2 humongous boobs barely hanging onto a small sliver of clothes acting as a bra it is most likely Katy.
But there’s a lot of middle ground with the two as they both like to dress quirky and have that ‘wide-eyed’ look. Sometimes it’s too hard to tell which is which so that’s why I made this awesome gallery of Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry to help you distinguish the two.
If you could cross Malcolm in the Middle with Dilbert you would get something close to the ABC comedy Better Off Ted, a sitcom about working in a mindless and evil corporation.
The company, Veridian Dynamics, is a collection of calamitous bureaucrats in power suits known for weaponizing pumpkins, creating 6-foot tall manic chickens, or growing meat without cows. Their labs are staffed with the brightest scientists around and items you didn’t even know you needed are being invented daily.
When DaveAndThomas Peppered throughout the episodes of Better Off Ted are some bits of brilliance in the form of random commercials about some of the things Veridian Dynamics believes in or mass produces. As long as it makes a dollar, they’ll support it. Let’s take a look at 5 Great Veridian Dynamics Commercials.
Veridian Dynamics Commercial: Food. Yum!
Veridian Dynamics is an industry leader in the creation of food-like food. If you want lemon-flavored fish or freaky meat-less meat than VD is your provider.
Veridian Dynamics Commercial: Diversity. Good for us.
Diversity. It’s important. And it’s widely available in stock footage. People come in a lot of varieties, just like food. Except you can’t eat people.
Veridian Dynamics Commercial: Teamwork Is Always Key!
Veridian Dynamics celebrates teamwork. It’s the glue that keeps societies together and keeps people from doing stuff that they shouldn’t.
Veridian Dynamics Commercial: Greening Our World!
Everyone likes the environment because people keep nagging them. It’s expensive and a pain when nature is mad. Or just acting stupid.
Veridian Dynamics Commercial: Life. Better!
Every day something we make, makes your life better. Usually… unless it blows you up.
And, as a special bonus, here’s the fake Veridian Dynamics commercial aimed at the President when he tried to schedule time on the airwaves that would have interrupted the programming of Better Off Ted. This one never aired that we know of on television but popped up online instead.
The opening credits of the WATCHMEN movie are a spectacle to be enjoyed on the big screen. Or an IMAX if you get the chance. Set to the iconic Bob Dylan song “The Times They Are A-Changin,’ the audience receives a quick run down of several very stylized time periods starting in 1939 with the Minutemen and ending in 1985 with the public uprising over masked vigilantes.
L.A. production company yU+Co had the joy of creating the WATCHMEN opening credits despite having one of the worst flash sites as their portfolio. That aside they did a fantastic job with the graphics in the credits. The entire 6-minute piece is almost a work of art in itself.
The challenge for yU+co. was integrating titles into an already edited six-minute sequence that was built without the placement of titles in mind. In order to make the titles feel like an organic part of the sequence, Yu and his creative team wove meticulous detail into the type design. Rather then simply lay 2D type onto the foreground of the live action, it is incorporated in 3D into each scene.
EDIT: FYI, this video is about to be pulled offline….enjoy it while you can. There are a few other links still available online like this but Warner Bros. is going around and pulling it from all the sites. Even the yU +Co site.
DOUBLE EDIT: This title sequence was removed at the request of Warner Bros. If the video appears online in the future we will update this post but for now we are being politely asked to remove the video from our site.
