What Next?

But who films the KillCameraman?

Have you ever wondered who captures those awesome killshots in Call of Duty? Well, meet Randall Higgins, the KillCameraman – he’s a pro, taking every killcam shot in every Call of Duty game ever made. With the release of Havoc, the first downloadable expansion pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Randall’s going to have to elevate his game to keep up with all the craziness you can throw at him in 2015.

Advanced Warfare is the 11th main game in the CoD series, and with such a strong active player network, it’s still impressive to see they keep coming up with new ways to impress and entice these players. With some other great live action trailers (check out their YouTube channel), this latest video is a step above in terms of creativity, and leaves you thinking this guy might just have the world’s best job! (if you’re a gamer that is – if not, you’d most likely believe this is the worst job in the world)

Viral video of the week

Let’s be friends furever

The latest Android ad is simply adorable. Dubbed “Friends Furever,” the collection of cute videos showing animals playing together has racked up over 6.4 million views already. The video leaves viewers with the message, “Be together. Not the same.” It’s the same message that Android has used in previous spots, highlighting their devices ability to be completely customisable (as opposed to iOS). A dig at Apple or not, this video is the cutest – fur reals.

Air France goes the extra mile

Every passenger hopes for the opportunity to get a free upgrade to Business Class when flying. To raise awareness of the launch of Air France’s new Business cabin, a mobile game was created, allowing travellers to compete for an instant upgrade at the boarding gate. With more than 400 passengers pinned against each other, the top scorers had the pleasure of experiencing the comfort of Air France’s new Business seats. Advergaming at its best.

TL;DR wants to train you to write emails in 30 words or less
