This is nuts. Acoustic live version by Michael Winslow of Whole Lotta Love originally by Led Zeppelin though via beatbox, acoustic guitar + almost perfect matching of Robert Plants’ voice on tv talkshow Senkveld med Thomas og Harald…friggin amazing.

In celebration of last night’s season finale of Mad Men, here’s a pretty good cover of the theme song (which is A Beautiful Mine by RJD2) performed live with a full band.

From the creators:

We loved the song “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2 that plays during the opening credits of “Mad Men.” We wanted to put lyrics to it and realized that “Nature Boy” made famous by Nat King Cole, and written by eden ahbez, was the perfect fit. This was filmed in one take (this one, specifically, happened to be take 29 of the day)…no cuts, dubbing, lip-syncing or auto-tuning.

If you caught last weeks Monday Night Football you probably witnessed part of a new Nike campaign from Wieden + Kennedy called BOOM. Yes, you read that correctly….first they tell us to Just Do we must BOOM. So far the one shown above with Rick Ross has been the ‘talk of the town’ as far as being the current favorite. Also if you go to the youtube page for each of the clips the comments get pretty funny for a few of them (I’ve posted the rest of the spots in the campaign at the bottom of the post).

Now I was going to make a wise-crack about how if they really wanted to Boom all they’d need are some tips from the Flight of the Conchords (Brit’s the boom king after-all), but alas, a user commenting on a related Adfreak post already beat me to it (touché). But for any of you who have no clue what I’m talking about, or even how to correctly “Boom,” hopefully the following instructional video will help:

Flight of the Conchords – BOOM:

And now for the rest of the spots in the campaign (Bo Jackson even makes a cameo in one of them…and let’s not forget that Bo Knows Football)… i’m sure there are more in queue for this campaign and your best chance at seeing them live will be every Monday night at half-time.
