It is that time of the week once again to take a look at some of the funny and cool things that we have found in our journey for the search for news this week. With the Super Bowl coming up, companies have already started posting their upcoming ads and while we’ve already seen the life-size Pac-Man game one, this week we have two more sent to us from Sprint and T-Mobile.
Super Bowl Ads
So this week Sprint and T-Mobile each posted a video showing off their upcoming Super Bowl ads. Honestly, it seems Sprint put very little thought into theirs even though it is a bit humorous if you know what the original video clip is from. T-Mobile’s ad features Kim Kardashian asking folks to please save the data that goes unused in the world. It’s actually somewhat funny.
In fact T-Mobile has three ads in total (all above) and all will be aired during the Super Bowl both on TV as well as online for tablet and desktop viewers who are watching NBC’s Livestream that day. Apparently these are the first original ads made to be shown for tablet and desktop livestream viewers of the Super Bowl. You can also check out all of T-Mobile’s ads over on their blog.
NBA Video Game Logo Remixes
Designer Mark Avery-Kenny, also known as AK, recently did a remix of NBA logos with Disney characters and while that was pretty neat itself, he has gone ahead and done the same thing again but this time with famous video game characters like Bowser, the dog from Duck Hunt, Starfox, Space Invaders, and more. Below are just a couple of examples.
You can check the entire list of remixed NBA logos over on the Bleacher Report or you can follow Mark on Instagram to see a lot more of his work (there is a lot over on his Instagram).

Super Marion World in 4:49:8
There is a glitch in Super Mario World that allows people to beat the game in an insanely fast time… a few minutes actually. The glitch has been known for awhile but has never been successfully done playing the game naturally on an SNES console (no emulators or anything like that) until last week when Seth Bling manager to pull it off while livestreaming on TwitchTV. He then uploaded the highlight to YouTube for all to watch in wonder. The first time he pulled off was 5:59.6 (that’s 5 minutes and 59 seconds). A day later he managed to beat that time with 4:49.8 which ended up being the new world record. This is the 4:49.8 video.
