Some friends recently told me about a website caused Devastating Explosions, at the touch of a button. I have to say, this is one of the coolest websites I’ve ever seen. All it is is explosions that you detonate, but what more do you need? I recommend you make your web browser full-screen for this page.
The website is courtesy of Old Spice. I’m not really sure what deodorant has to do with explosions, but it’s cool nonetheless. (Yeah, I realize it’s a marketing ploy to get them recognition, and it’s a good one.)
Anyway, back to the explosions… One of them has two tanker trucks blowing up in an intersection, which seems odd. But then an old car drives through the explosion area like nothing happened. Another scene has a huge explosion and there’s somebody walking along casually. I’m thinking if there’s a massive explosion that close to you and you aren’t either admiring it or running away, then you had something to do with it and are trying too hard to look innocent.
There needs to be more websites like this… and they should be made into TV commercials.
We need to figure out how to get paid for making video clips of explosions! Surely there are many amateur / indie movie-makers who would like to add more explosions to their films (who wouldn’t?), but they don’t have the budget for it. Plus it would be awesome to try to build the most complete library of explosions ever! How many unique explosions could we think up? I don’t know, but I’ve got quite a few ideas already…
