Two musicals make a mark and one clip home delivers a point
Sticks and stones
A hilarious take on the selfie stick, and the level to which people use (or even abuse it) will certainly make you think before you take your next selfie. With accidents occurring due to the long sticks to a window being broken to make sure an entire party of teenagers fits in the frame, the spokeswoman highlights the ‘effects of the selfie’ in a stern voice, dramatising the dangers of the selfie stick. She ups the false terror and rage, and just when you thought it was a PSA, you realise it is a Pizza Hut ad.
Game of songs
Chris Martin meets George RR Martin in this video starring the cast of Game of Thrones and Coldplay. It begins with the band wanting to create a rock opera of the series, and Chris trying to round up the cast to sing. It starts off badly, but when in Jon Snow style, Kit Harrington shows up, things take a turn for the better. Watch as they sing songs fitting their character. Pay attention specially to Closer to Home by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister), and a reggae tune by the Khaleesi.
Last week’s Billboard awards saw a fitting tribute to Paul Walker as cast members of Furious 7, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson introduced rapper Wiz Khalifa, singer Charlie Puth and violinist Lindsey Striling’s performance of See You Again. The song is part of the OST of the film, and the emotion made for a change in an evening filled with theatrics and strange performances by Kanye West and the rest of the Kardashians.
