Cool ad of the day. Hennessy x Nas: The Ride

Long before Illmatic, Nas was living in a N.Y. State of Mind, absorbing the people, places and events that would come to define his lyrics. Witness #TheRide that gave us one of hip-hop’s greatest legends.

Video of the day. UNDER de Kevin Frilet from Human Films

UNDER de Kevin Frilet from Human Films on Vimeo.
Up there the light is white. Bodies fall from the surface. The water is bright, seems alive.
Down there, from the abyss, darkness reigns. There she will deploy as for the first time. It's there, amid the darkness, that will appear an another form, that of a man.

PSA of the day. Local Legends - NZTransportAgency - Stop someone driving drunk


Barry and Kev take it upon themselves to have a word with a local lad they recognise, who is about to get behind the wheel after having had a few too many. This ad highlights the importance of speaking up and saying something when you know someone who drives after drinking. Visit our website for more info -
