805 Million Names , Zlatan Ibrahimović – World Food Programme.

Ztalan Ibrahimovic's 50 tattoos

On 14 February 2015, Paris Saint-German played against Caen at Parc des Princes. For most players this game was just another day on the job. For Zlatan Ibrahimović this was his most important game to date.


Underneath his sweater he had 50 new names tattooed. Names of people he’d never met, but still wanted to keep close. Names of some of the 805 million people suffering from hunger today.

These people don’t often make the front page, yet hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

This is a campaign from the World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. In emergencies, they get food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.
On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. About 11,500 people work for the organisation, most of them in remote areas, serving the hungry.

Sergei Polunin, “Take Me to Church” by Hozier – Directed by David LaChapelle

Polunin directed by David LaChapelle

Ukranian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin has performed his stunning visual interpretation of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” and it’s so good, you have to see it to believe it.

Directed by David LaChapelle, the atmospheric video sees the 25-year-old pirouette and sauté to the chart-topping anti-gay oppression anthem, against a beautiful backdrop of a studio amongst the trees.

Former British Royal Ballet principal dancer Polunin performs dressed only in nude tights, as sunlight glimmers through the white room’s arched windows, creating a spiritual effect.

His passionate four-minute sequence reflects the demons of Hozier’s hit and showcases his impressive artistry and skill.

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

Oberyn vs Mountain – The Denial Version [SPOILER]

SOCIAL MEDIA POWER

Schermata 2014-06-04 alle 23.59.43

According to Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, there are five stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. Following the mindblowing ending of the “The Mountain And The Viper” episode, it’s possible many Game Of Thrones fans find themselves still stuck in that first stage. Luckily, there is a video that can help viewers escape into another world, a better world, to assuage that feeling of utter hopelessness. YouTube user The Ozzy Man has put together an alternative cut of the climactic scene from the episode, one that finds a much different fate for everyone’s favorite pansexual seeker of justice, Oberyn Martell. This version provides a glimpse into a much-improved reality where good things can happen, often accompanied by Tina Turner.

Sex on Vacation – Do It for Denmark.

A Danish travel agency has found a solution for Denmark’s falling birth rate – and its proposal is whipping around the globe with viral speed.
It’s called “Do it for Denmark,” and in a witty video that asks “Can sex save Denmark’s future?” the Spies travel agency urges the country’s couples to go on vacation, “and make babies to deal with Denmark’s flaccid birth rate that is currently at a 27-year record low” as explained by the Copenhagen Post.


“The 55,873 children born in Denmark last year is the lowest number since 1986,” according to the Post, which notes that Denmark’s falling birth rate has been an issue for some time. Since 2000, the birth rate has declined by 17%, making it the lowest among Nordic countries.
The ad argues that romantic holidays are more conducive to turning couples on, and it seems that the Danes are particularly prone to get in the mood while traveling. “Danes have 46% more sex on holiday compared to their everyday lives,” the commercial’s voiceover intones.
“To help the falling Danish birth rate,” the travel agency wants to encourage all Danes to take that romantic holiday. The winning couples able to prove that they conceived during the trip get a three-year supply of diapers and a free child-friendly future vacation as part of their special “Ovulation Discount.”

The ad further claims that 10% of Denmark’s babies are conceived on vacation, and that nearly half of the population admit to having more sex while on holiday.

For those unconvinced by the numbers, “Do It For Denmark!” insists that getting away from it all boosts libido for men and women. It features a sex therapist who says that traveling together helps keep the spark alive in a relationship.
The video is closing in on 3.5 million views on YouTube and stars a stunning, young Danish blonde woman.“Meet Emma, she’s Danish,” she’s introduced. “But even though she was born and raised in Denmark, she was made in Paris, up there, in that hotel room…Thirty years ago, Emma’s parents took a little getaway…”

Then it invites people to book a holiday and “Get it on….. But what if you already did your duty? Or what if your chance of conceiving a children isn’t so high? Well look at it this way. It’s not just about winning. All the fun is in the participation. Participate in the competition. Do it for Denmark.”
