Would you have dared to jump?

Inspiring ad of the day. Every Day is Day One - Samsung - ASP - Surf


Samsung Mobile is proud to be the first global partner of the ASP, together they celebrate the growth of surfing worldwide and remind us that out on the waves, every day is day one. 

The film launches with the 2014 US leg of the ASP World Tour, featuring pro-surfers Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, Gabriel Medina, Mitch Crews and Johanne Defay.

The first time you hold a surfboard, the first time you ride a wave, the first time you get barreled, the first time you win a world title.

It doesn't matter where you are from or how good you are. Every day is day one.

If you are PRESS and would like to do a story about us we would love to hear from you! Please email: 

Think Wikipedia style collaboration for family-friendly video filters. VidAngel is powered by a volunteer community of avid fans of family-friendly video where members of the community tag potentially offensive swearing, sex and violence in movies, TV shows and YouTube videos. These tags allow viewers to filter what they see and hear based on their personal values and content preferences. 

VidAngel's approach to filtering is legal and explicitly protected by the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act of 2005. This law protects your right to remove "limited portions of audio or video content of a motion picture, during a performance in or transmitted to that household for private home viewing, from an authorized copy of the motion picture."

VidAngel is founded by the Harmon Brothers, who are well known for creating the award winning YouTube sensation Girl's Don't Poop for Poo~Pourri (which has more than 27 million YouTube views) and co-founding Orabrush and Orapup, another award winning YouTube breakthrough. 

One of the most compelling aspects of VidAngel is that it expands Hollywood's market base here in the United States. Hollywood is always trying to reach more viewers by cutting their films for different audiences: There's the Studio's Final Cut for theaters, the Director's Cut for the artists, the Airline and Broadcast Cut for the FCC, the Middle Eastern cut for Islam, the unrated cut for perverts and fan cuts like people uploading just the sex scenes from Game of Thrones to YouTube. It seems like there's a cut for everyone. But one major group was missing, a Family Cut for streaming. That's why VidAngel was created! 

Join the VidAngel community and filter your favorite movies, TV shows and YouTube videos for free on your desktop or laptop computer. Because VidAngel is using Google Play and YouTube, you can easily rent almost all popular new releases, including the new releases not available on Netflix.

Ad of the day. Stella Artois - Sandman


The Sandman is notorious for the difficulty of his sand bunkers. Golfers must display perfect golf technique to get out of his sand traps.

Subscribe to Stella Artois:
World's Greatest Events:

The 2006 Open Championship winner avoided all of the greens keeper's golfing traps. 2014 will be different with the addition of his new sand bunker, Medusa.

A mutual desire for un-paralleled perfection and beauty brings Stella Artois together with four of the world's greatest events: Festival de Cannes, Wimbledon, The Open Championship, and
Abierto Argentino de Polo.
