Following on from the news that Albert de Wet’s track, “Bikin’ RSA” was initially sent to media as the official song of the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, and then sternly rejected by officials from the organisation, we suggest that bikers across the country rally around this song ahead of the big race [...]
English heavy metal band Motörhead has launched a line of bottled alcoholic beverages, because that’s just what you do when you’re a band of a certain age. There’s Motörhead Vodka which, sure, heavy metal, makes sense, and they’ve also released Motörhead Shiraz. Because I guess that’s heavy metal too.
A new website, called Dollar Shave Club, just launched. What are they all about? Look, I can tell you – or you can watch this video. The level of awesomeness you are about to experience knows no boundaries. Check it out inside.
An internet meme that is pretty popular at the moment is the whole “shit so-and-so says”. Last week Nicky Felbert-Lazarus from Mercury Productions uploaded “Shit South Africans Say” onto YouTube, and it has since raked up more than 100 000 views. Jislaaik! See it after the jump just now – we smaak it stukkend!
Tricycles are pretty lame, and Tokyo Drift was a terrible movie, so it makes sense that bringing the two concepts together produces something unbelievably awesome. Click through to watch a montage of grown men drifting through the streets of New Zealand on customized trikes.
Last night saw the expulsion of Julius Malema, along with some of his brothers-in-arms, from the ANC. Now might be a good time to sit back and reflect on this prophetic Nando’s poster, released in November last year, that now rings truer than ever. The headline reads: “Juju, you’ve been served.” While the body copy [...]
On Monday we saw Sacha Baron Cohen dump Kim Jong-Il’s “ashes” onto Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet. Ryan didn’t think it was funny, and neither did Donald Trump, it would seem. He’s taken to YouTube to voice his displeasure – even going so far as to say Seacrest should have punched Baron Cohen in the face. See the video inside.
Next day etiquette is a tricky thing to nail. You’ve spent the night with someone who is essentially a stranger so that you could share a momentary, mutual benefit and now you’re paying the price. Usually exchanges are limited to a few awkward words and an amicable goodbye, usually…
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has made a movie trailer, starring pretty much every actor working in Hollywood today. It is for a fictitious film called “Movie: The Movie”. If you’ve ever wanted to see that chick from “Precious” as Black Hitler or Matt Damon as a bunch of grapes, then this is will make you laugh out loud.
Capetonians: on Janssens Road, in Tableview, near the bike shop, this traffic light is sporting a new “green” signal. Apparently, this isn’t the first traffic light that’s been sporting this kind of “green” signal either.

Alex Rawlings is a 20-year-old student at Oxford University. He recently won a search by Harper Collins Publishers to identify the most multilingual student in the United Kingdom. This boss is able to speak 11 languages, ranging from English to Catalan. And…wait for it…Afrikaans! See him speak all of them fluently – after the jump.
After speculation about whether or not Sacha Baron Cohen would be allowed to show up at the Oscars dressed as his character from The Dictator, he eventually appeared on the red carpet last night. Admiral General Aladeen also carried an urn labeled “Kim Jong-Il’s ashes.” Ryan Seacrest was the unfortunate presenter who got to interview him. Can you guess what happened next?
When people accused Alex Thomson of photoshopping the iconic image of himself “riding” the keel of his 60ft yacht “HUGO BOSS,” he decided that there is only one way to prove them wrong. And this video has granted him a lifelong membership to the 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame. Do we even need to tell you what make the suit is he is wearing?
News broadcasts, albeit informative, are often boring affairs lacking the flair that many viewers hope for, that is at least until Cassetteboy gets hold of a copy. Their latest ‘remix’ features the BBC’s George Alagiah reporting on issues that would make any political pundit cringe.
Microsoft has launched a fascinating attack on Google Apps. In this instalment, Microsoft uses the American television series, Moonlighting, which aired during the mid 1980’s, to give us the spoof: Googlighting. Microsoft asks: “What happens when the world’s largest ad sales business tries to sell productivity software on the side?” It’s Microsoft Office versus Google Apps.
This weekend, the G20 Ministers of Foreign Affairs held an informal meeting in Mexico. During this time a group photo was taken of everyone wearing tropical, weather-ready white cotton shirts. Everyone except Hillary Clinton, that is. Clearly her memo was lost in the mail as she rocked up in a lime green blouse. Awkward group photo after the jump.
An intelligent billboard set up in London has facial recognition tech built in that lets it scan passersby for gender – if a woman stops to take a look, it plays a 40-second video clip. Dudes only get a link to the advertiser’s website. It’s like they’re trying to send a message or something.
Our latest addition to the 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame hails from Oslo. Baard Kolstad is being called the next Ringo Star and has even appeared on “Norway’s Got Talent.” Watch how he plays the drums, like a boss, after the jump.
PETA recently took up a lawsuit against SeaWorld on behalf of five killer whales. The animal rights campaigners even went so far as to compare the condition of these orcas to human slavery. The Daily Show responded by sending a black guy to interview someone at PETA. After watching this, pack up and go home, because this is the best thing you’ll see all day.
Chris Brown’s success at the Grammys – he won an award for the Best R&B album, and performed to a standing ovation – has been mildly overshadowed by people getting upset over his beating up Rihanna. So, like all mature and repentant individuals, he turned to his Twitter account to set things right.
Americans seem to have an insatiable appetite for high-energy, adrenalin fueled sports laced with machoism and violence. Their latest “sport” is no exception; it’s a crude mix of soccer, American football, ice hockey without the skates, a dash of WWE and police brutality.
Obama seems to be going with the “sing when you’re winning” line of thought – first his rendition of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together”, and now his 28-track long Campaign playlist has shown up on Spotify, to remind voters that he’s totally hip to the groove. Take a look to compare your tastes with the POTUS.
The Super Bowl is literally the biggest sporting event in the US, it eclipses the World Series of MLB, the Olympics, and any World Cup tournament. So what happens when the TV gets unplugged at the most crucial part of the game; chaos ensues.
Yesterday, OK Go released their new music video for Needing/Getting, which doubled as a Super Bowl ad for the Chevy Sonic. The band drives a Chevy fitted with retractable arms down a 3km stretch of desert lined with 1 000 instruments to perform a version of “Needing/Getting” that took four months to prep and four days to shoot.
Ever since its launch at the end of last year, Apple’s Siri has been at the top of everyone’s “to get” list. A virtual assistant that is so much more than that, it has thrilled users the world round. That is of course unless you’re from Scotland in which case you might as well be talking into a Nokia 3310.
An 83-year-old woman has successfully had her lower jaw replaced with a 3D-printed model by scientists at Belgium’s University of Hasselt. This is the first such implant in the world, and was a much faster process than traditional artificial implants – we’re taking hours instead of days.
The US, the most powerful nation in the world both in terms of their economy and military seem to be lacking in one crucial area; education. A recent short study done by a high school student portrays the average American student as not knowing all too much about their own country.
This is just plain ridiculous! Have a look at these guys pulling off insanely awesome pool table tricks. After watching this we’ve fast-tracked their application to immediately make space for them in our 2oceansVibe Boss Hall of Fame.
Controversial mixed race posters have been all the rage lately. It’s therefore not surprising that the clever people behind ZANews picked up on it and responded with their own advert. It features Jacob Zuma and Helen Zille, both naked, in a passionate embrace. Have a look – after the jump!
