Shad – Fresh Prince Parody!

There are very few rappers to get excited about these days. Shad is one of them. The London, Ontario native just released a hilarious video for his latest single “The Old Prince Still Lives at Home”. The video, produced by Hot Dog Garbage, is a detailed parody of the opening of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And when I say detailed, I mean it. Wow! (Hit reload if the video loaded off-center)

Great song and great video. Nas should take some notes this is how you do a low-budget video right.

Shad – Brother (Watching) – another great track.

    Hamada, awesome post.

    This cats epic. Shad. I will definitely remember his name.

    That Fresh Prince video is incredible.

    Love the loop on the “Brother” video.

    Well done.

  • christina

    loves this!! haha

  • Mitch

    Hilarious video,
    love The Fresh Prince, so this goes hand in hand.

    I wish he would have spliced in the extended intro scenes, would have scored MAJOR points in my book.

  • yea this is one of the best hiphop videos i’ve seen in a long time. i can’t believe how well they reproduced the sets and props.

  • Oh SO Tight.

  • this is so fresh. really good quality for a small budget, damn.

  • they did an awesome job on reproducing the intro.

    i love how they made up corny names when the credits are rolling haha

  • yea the names are all references to the lyrics he’s saying, soo good

  • Mudasser

    i thought both were pretty good. moviemaking is rarely taken seriously by rappers so this is fresh.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
