Tron 2 leaked trailer

Tron 2 test footage still

Update: You’ll find the new high definition test footage from Comic-Con 2009 here

The new teaser trailer/test footage for the forthcoming TR2N movie starring Jeff Bridges was shown at the San Diego Comic Con the other day. It hasn’t officially been released to the wider public yet but it looks like someone’s managed to videotape it and stick it online. I’m only slightly wetting my pants with excitement.

UPDATE The video I posted earlier has been pulled from Vimeo. I’ve changed it to the same video on Youtube.

Thai ghosts light bulb commercial

This is one of the most surreal and entertaining things I have seen in a long time! It’s, apparently, a Thai commercial for Sylvania Light Bulbs featuring a bunch of incredibly odd ghosts.

There’s no point me explaining it, just watch! (thanks Harsh!)

MGMT’s Electric Feel performed by animatronic animals

The Rock-afire Explosion were an animatronic band comprised of anthropomorphic animals that played in Showbiz Pizza Place restaurants in the USA through the 1980s. After closing down many of these setups found their way to enthusiasts. Here’s one such setup, performing MGMT’s Electric Feel.

Perhaps even more obscurely, a documentary is currently being produced about car-salesman Chris Thrash, a guy who recently purchased the rights to Rock-afire Explosion with an aim to resurrect them and the Showbiz Pizza Place. (via Penny Arcade)

Guitar God: The 1980s Guitar Hero!

What would have Guitar Hero been like if it were released in the early 80s? I’d imagine something very much like this! I particularly like the grating (but familiar) “game over” sound. (thanks Dave!)
