Your Eyes Are Stupid

ZeFrank gives rundown of some brain failures that have your eyes in them.


Wall Dogs of New York

Climbers' ropes secured around their torsos, Jason Coatney and Armando Balmaceda stand in a melange of open paint cans and brushes. These two muralists of Colossal Media, the largest hand-painted advertising company in America, are heavily layered in sweatshirts and raincoats. But in this industry, c'est la vie. Paintbrushes in their fingerless-gloved hands, earbuds in their ears -- "I like to start out with Miles Davis in the morning," Coatney smiles, his breath visible in the frigid air -- they begin yet another workday in the sky.

Bouncing Balls Sony Bravia

Sony drops 250,000 multi colored bouncy balls down the streets of San Francisco to film a commercial for their line of Bravia televisions.


Malaria tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death. This short film combines Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, Comic Books and Western Cinema.

Chasing Skaters Down Stunt

While filming the Volvo C30 Polestar, we happened upon some downhill skateboarders from Orangatang Wheels, and asked if we could chase them down the mountain. These guys are nuts.

 Lizard Soldiers of the Third Reich

American GIs are being decimated by Nazi dinosaurs all over the Western front. Danger 5 heads to Belgium to investigate and has a series of close shaves with a trigger-happy Triceratops and a perverted Nazi Pterodactyl. Claire discovers that the dinosaurs have all been implanted with a mysterious type of crystal, native to Antarctica and Danger 5 embark on a journey to the South Pole. Antarctica proves to be a lost plateau of prehistoric wonder where Danger 5 encounter the bizarre Dr Josef Mengele and his sinister volcano base filled with Nazi dinosaur minions.

Danger 5 is an Australian action comedy television series on SBS One which premiered on 27 February 2012. The pulp magazine-inspired series was created by Dario Russo and David Ashby.

The show is set in a bizarre 1960s interpretation of World War II and follows a group of five international spies on a mission to kill Adolf Hitler and thwart his plans of world domination.

After the success of the web series Italian Spiderman created by Alrugo Entertainment (Russo, Ashby, Tait Wilson, Will Spartalis and Boris Repasky), Australian broadcaster SBS became interested in turning the project into a interstitial television show. Due to ownership and copyright issues within the production team, the project fell through. Nonetheless, SBS were still interested in Russo and Ashby and in 2009 offered a development deal for a new show. Russo and Ashby submitted three concepts that, regardless what was chosen, they would be happy to make. Danger 5 was the chosen concept, the most ambitious and dense of the three.
