    Car Insurance Commercial Remade With LEGO Proves Everything Is Better When Remade With LEGO

    We get a lot of emails that are obvious ploys by companies to try to fool us into posting a commercial for them under the guise of it being interesting content. Well guess what, Confused.com: sometimes it works. They remade the above boring insurance commercial with LEGO and now we love them and their little robot Brian.

    Here’s How to Watch Today’s Super Bowl Commercials Without Watching the Dumb Super Bowl

    You may have noticed a common thread in today's Geekosystem posts. That thread, of course, is that football is boring. That's because it is. Commercials that air during the Super Bowl tend to be pretty good, and for years we've had to suffer through football to see them. No more. Here's how to watch just the commercials.

    Here’s a Very Polite Sounding British Woman Talking About Poop

    Poop smells because of the bacteria in your digestive system breaking down organic material. It's science. People have been trying to cover up the smell forever, but one company finally thinks they've got the problem tanked. Check out this bizarre video of a polite British woman on a toilet talking about Poo~Pourri which is a real thing. Really.

    Apple is Reportedly Floating a Plan to Get Rid of TV Ads, a Grateful Audience Rejoices

    If you're sick of commercials when you watch TV, you're not alone. Apple seems pretty tired of them as well. That's probably why they're considering a plan that would get rid of ads altogether. The downside is that they would do so by charging users more money to pay off the companies benefitting from the ads, but maybe that's not so bad. I wouldn't mind kicking in a few extra bucks each month to not have to watch commercials.

    Spock vs. Spock Makes for the Greatest Car Ad of All Time [Video]

    It's rare that a TV commercial rises to the level of high art, but damned if Audi didn't just nail it right here. In nearly three minutes of Spock on Spock action, we've got the following: Chess, swearing, Leonard Nimoy singing "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins," a 'hand against the glass' gag, and even a Vulcan nerve pinch for good measure. And if you're wondering which one ends up being the one true Spock...just kidding. You weren't really wondering that, were you? Don't feel bad, though, Mr. Quinto. Leonard's just been at this a lot longer than you have.

    Kmart Adds Shark Death to List of Reasons to Avoid Kmart

    Because of Jaws and plenty of real-life attacks, we're afraid of sharks. We should be; they're top predators, they've got sharp teeth, and they can smell you from miles away. But we as a species don't really wish them any harm, except for the ones that come after us -- and really, a good punch to the face or a friendly neighborhood dolphin could do the trick. So it's sad to learn of one dying because of something stupid people did. Specifically, a white-tipped shark died after being placed in an above-ground tank for a Kmart commercial in California.

    Learn Where Babies Come From With This Super Bowl Ad (It’s Space)

    The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and I couldn't care less. It's not even worth watching for the commercials any longer, because they're all online the next day.Some -- like this one -- leak out early for one reason or another. I also don't like inadvertently helping with the marketing for companies, but this video is too adorable to not share with the world. The commercial shows a father answering his young son's question of where babies come from. He sounds misinformed, but the resulting barrage of CGI baby animals is too much to withstand. It's just so adorable. Also, keep your eyes peeled for some great sperm/egg rocket/planet imagery, and capital use of the word "penetrate."

    What? Speak Up! FCC Law Limiting Commercial Volume Now in Effect

    Commercials being too loud is the kind of problem you tend not to realize is a problem until someone points it out to you, but once you notice it it's hard to ignore, and it's been a major complaint from consumers for decades. That's why Representative Anna G. Eshoo introduced the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) act back in 2010. The bill was signed into law December 15, 2010 and went into effect yesterday. We're glad lawmakers didn't eschew the problem any longer.

    Apple Commercial Features Piano App, All Piano Apps Profit Accordingly

    Apple tends to feature various apps that their products can run in their commercials. Since this is pretty much the only function these devices provide, it's a common occurrence. Developers love it when the company does this, because the general public really isn't that discerning. Thanks to a recent iPad commercial featuring a piano being used in GarageBand, piano apps across the board seem to be doing exceedingly well.

    Stride Gum Parodies Pretentious Apple Commercials [Video]

    You've all seen commercials for Apple products. When they're not featuring silhouettes dancing about to seizure-inducing backdrops, they're busy pretending their new slightly-upgraded computer with a better screen (for which most programs are not yet optimized) is a gift from the tech gods, the likes of which we've not yet seen. Stride Gum, on the other hand, realizes that a new flavor of a product doesn't redefine the entire genre of said product. They also have a pretty good sense of humor about it, if you aren't Apple. Check out where Stride got their inspiration for the parody after the jump.

    Harsh Samsung Galaxy S II Commercial Spends Entirety of Ad Insulting Apple Consumers

    Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S II is seen as the iPhone's biggest competitor. So, instead of getting the edge over their rivals by showing everyone whatever unique features the Galaxy S II sports, Samsung decided to insult Apple consumers -- not even Apple the company, but the people who buy their products -- for the length of a commercial.

    1997 Apple Commercial Narrated by Steve Jobs That Never Aired Suddenly Holds Significance Now [Video]

    Though this unaired Apple commercial narrated by Steve Jobs has been viewable on the Internet for some time, it suddenly holds a new level of significance after Jobs' passing. The narration, music, and black and white visuals provide a somber backdrop for Jobs' speech describing the innovative and unique minds in our society. The quote the commercial ends with, "The people who are craziest enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do" will surely gain a revived and new level of prominence now that Jobs is gone.
