What It Means To Make It Count

What do you know about what you do every day? Do you know how much energy you exert into routine activities? Do you set goals to enhance these activities? Most of us don’t realize how sedentary our lives are, but Nike now gives us the opportunity to be in the know with the Nike+ Fuelband. This device measures your daily activity and then translates it into NikeFuel. You can track any type of physical activity, routine or otherwise, through the band or your smart phone, set daily goals, and simply become more knowledgeable about your activity.

Why? “Because the key to doing more, is knowing more”.

To spread word about this concept, Nike asked Casey Neistat, a New York filmmaker, to make a video about what it means to make it count.  The video begins with Casey unboxing the Nike+ Fuelband. He takes the budget allotted to him from Nike and blows it travelling the world with his friend for ten days.

From Paris to Cairo, from Johannesburg to Rome, the video shows Casey fully active in whatever environment he endures. Throughout the shots, the video flashes inspirational quotes from legends past about life, encouragement, and taking risks in order to reap rewards. After all, you only live once.

What risks are you willing to take to #makeitcount? Tell us in the comments section below.

Viral Video: Awesome Sound and Water Experiment!

As much as we may want to, we simply can’t reverse the flow of water like the city did to the Chicago River. But, we sure can make people think we can. How, you ask?

It’s simple! YouTuber, brusspop, shot this awesome video showing us how use a camera to give viewers the illusion that we can change the flow of water.  Using nothing more than a tube, a bucket, a subwoofer, a camera, and some water, you can prove to your friends that you can stop, reverse, or slow down water flow.

Now the kicker—this is all done with NO video manipulation! Do you believe it? Leave your comments and let us know.

K-Swiss Takes Viral Video Risks For Big Payoff

THIS is how a viral video is done: first, you’ve got to be able to take some risks. Then, you craft an unbelievable story line with an amazing cast of characters. Finally, you drive your message home with high production value and subsequent behind-the-scenes videos with added bonus commercials.

In this case, K-Swiss decided to take a big risk by creating an uncensored, 5-minute clip of ‘CEO Kenny Powers,’ who is changing things up a bit at the company. He’s ‘hired’ Michael Bay, Matt Cassel, Jillian Michaels and MMA Champion Jon “Bones” to help run the company, and he’s putting his Tube’s footprint all over the place. With nearly 2 million hits in just over 2 months, this video (and it’s many subsequent commercials) have taken over YouTube.
