Late last week, we stumbled upon a hilarious Ad for a snowblower.

At the time, it had reached ~85,000 (already an impressive feat), but over the weekend it has snowballed (excuse the pun) and garnered well over 350,000 views.

Here’s an excerpt:

This isn’t some entry level snow blower that is just gonna move the snow two feet away. This is an 11 HP Briggs and Stratton machine of snow doom that will cut a 29 inch path of pure ecstasy. And it’s only 4 years old. I dare you to find a harder working 4 year old. My niece is five and she gets tired and cranky after just a few minutes of shoveling. This guy just goes and goes and goes.

It really is a must-read. Click here for the Ad.

After deliberating over the entries and taking into account the votes, we have selected a winner of our Light Strike Fan Contest.

A BIG congrats to Drew Campbell and his awesome Light Strike Adventure video.

He takes the grand prize of $1000!

Here’s the winning entry:

We had an amazing time this past summer at Six Flags® Theme Parks across the USA and in Montreal, Canada.

If you were lucky enough to swing by our Light Strike target tent, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about!

If you missed it, check below for some sweet shots of the action.

While one trooper takes aim, the others provide tactical backup.

There’s no harm in asking for a little help - like this little guy did while preparing to take out the targets down range.

Pulling out their best action poses prior to engaging, these little dudes took little time defeating the targets that lay ahead.

Picking off a target at long range with his Striker, his sister watches on – ready for battle.

Tactical strategy: If you’re unable to see over an obstacle, stretch out and get on your tip-toes to take out the final target.

If you braved the stores for Black Friday, we commend you. Hopefully you’ve recovered from any bruised elbows squished toes and have set your sights on a click-crazy Cyber Monday tomorrow.

As always, there are plenty of deals to be had, and as long as your Internet provider can keep up with you, you’re sure to cash in on some sweet gifts for the holiday season.

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the most recent reviews on WowWee toys – if you need that little extra convincing ;).

We saw this video and were immediately impressed by Thomas’ demeanor and intelligence.

Inspired by the late Steve Jobs, this young man “articulates his vision that students are a valuable new technology resource to teachers, and should be empowered to offer assistance in developing the technology curriculum and also assist in delivering the lessons.”

A very worthwhile watch.

This video from Ben Spark gives you a fantastic look at how much fun the Paper Jamz Pro Microphone can be. Whether it’s a concert, or a talk show, the Paper Jamz Pro Mic adds a touch of fun and creativity to your day.

There’s also a superb demo of how to sync your songs with the Paper Jamz Pro App.

Thanks Drew and Eva!

Eva is loving the Paperjamz microphone. We even downloaded some of our own songs to the mic so that she could sing what she likes whenever she wants. Eva does love to sing so we are hearing more from this microphone every day.
