Don’t vote

This video encouraging young Americans to go out and vote is mightily effective and, frankly, terrifying.

Flame grilled, just like you

Burger King let AI sort the voiceover on some ads for them. The results are, well, interesting. Maybe the machines aren’t *quite* ready to rise up just yet.

I touch myself

Serena Williams this week again proved she’s brilliant at just about everything, by releasing this cover of The Devinyls biggest/only hit for Breast Cancer awareness month.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key – it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself

We always need teachers. They make a very real difference to people’s lives. This recruitment video shows exactly that and is beautifully done.

Our tomorrows

The Guardian has put out a seven-minute film featuring teenagers from all over the world talking about their hopes and dreams. It’s really rather good.
