…Bravia also covered the pyramids?

Though the bunnies are still in the spotlight, Sony has created another beautiful Bravia ad that is slipping by relatively unnoticed.

Supposedly made exclusively for the Egyptian market, this ad features one of the Great Pyramids getting covered in string in a very Sony way.

It’s an amazing ad, which is why I wonder about the lack of publicity.

Regardless, here you go:

…The Sahara is a runner’s paradise?

Running The Sahara Map

To say that Charlie Engle, Ray Zahab and Devin Lin are just runners would be like saying that Michael Jordan was just a basketball player. The three recently completed a 111-day run across the Sahara Desert from Senegal to Egypt, a 4,000-mile distance that required them to do an average of 2 marathons per day. Keep in mind, I did say the Sahara Desert, as in, the world’s largest desert, as in, really, really dry, and definitely not a place you’d want to go running for fun. Charlie, Ray and Devin aren’t just doing it for fun though; their goal is to raise money for H2O Africa, a clean water initiative with the goal of bringing fresh water to the people of Africa. There is also going to be a movie made about the experience called “Running The Sahara”, and I’m sure there are going to be quite a few stories to tell, so be on the look out for the release date. Now would probably be a good time to buy stock in a blister medicine company.
