super mash bros
Yoooo! This weekend, America will be in full form as most of the nation’s eye will be fixed on Super Bowl XLVI, which is absolutely proven to provide high-throttle sports action backed by gluttonous consumption of food, drink and expensive advertising.
For anybody else that holds marketing dear to their heart like me (I studied journalism and strategic communication in college,) this weekend is like free porn on cable TV. To tie things into music, it’ll be interesting to see what bands and artists are gonna be featured as the soundtrack to this weekend’s big-budget commercials. For more on this, peep the write up on song placements in commercials by our good friend and fellow blogger Confusion over at Pigeons and Planes.
What are some of your traditions for Super Bowl weekend? Giants or Patriots? Do you love American football? Do you hate American football? What artists would you love to see back a Super Bowl ad?
BONUS: A lot of companies have been previewing their big ads for the weekend on YouTube to get a viral bang for their buck. Here’s my favorite so far, featuring Matthew Broderick parodying his own classic flick, Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. The soundtrack also reprises itself from the original movie–“Oh Yeah” by Yello.
1. “Levels (TheFatRat Remix)” – Aviici
2. “Youth (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)” – Foxes
3. “Nightchain (Wale X Kavinsky)” – The Hood Internet
4. “¡Holy Guacamole!” – Super Mash Bros
5. “Pictures (GZUS Remix)” – Benjamin Francis Leftwich

Yep, you read it right! I’ve got two free tickets to give away for a concert outside of Philly (and only one hour from NYC via a $12 train, and close to Trenton as well). The event is called Summer 618 and it will feature:
Super Mash Bros.
5 & A Dime
3 Philadelphia DJs
+ 4 Surprise Electronic Artists in the VIP dome/stage*
(*VIP: underneath an Ultra-style geodesic dome, a second stage will host the official VIP after-party.)
To be in the running for the free tickets, simply comment on this post with your name, email address, and favorite movie of all time.
Yall know if I was near NYC/Philly I’d be at this show in a heartbeat! This isn’t something to pass up on!
Here’s a video to get yall pumped:
***To make this whole thing even cooler, the concert is eco-friendly and fueled by biodiesel, run with electronic ticketing, and hosted on a natural food local-crop farm that will reinvest its profits in sustainability.
Feel free to spread the word about this to your friends/family in the NYC/Philly/Trenton area by sharing the link using the Twitter/Facebook/Buzz/etc. icons below this post.
I’ve got two songs for this version of Mashup Monday. The first is one of my alltime favorite mashups. Talk about some throwback songs in there! Download it-you wont regret it.
Second, I’ve got a dope mashup that I don’t have a download link for, unfortunately.
“Got It Twisted” – Mobb Deep x Bob Marley
“Boom Boom Pau” — Super Mash Bros
Don’t be mistaken-this has nothing to do with Boom Boom Pow. I’m pretty sure these guys are just Lakers fans. Super Mash Bros came out with a new album (All About the Scrilions) today! This is the intro song and it gives you an idea of how stellar the album is. Their mashups might be better than any others I’ve heard in a while. Giving Girl Talk and Norwegian Recycling some competition! I was almost hesitant to share this album because it’s just THAT good 🙂
Download the whole album (All About the Scrilions) for free here.
(Seems like the download link may be defective…I’ll work on that when I get a free minute.)
