‘Ambition’, A Sci-fi Short Film Made to Promote the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission

“Ambition” is a short science-fiction film directed by Polish artist Tomasz Baginski to promote the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission. The short, which stars Game of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen, combines fantasy elements with renders of the space mission to tell the story of the Rosetta quest.

Just as Gillen’s enigmatic Master encourages Franciosi’s Apprentice to seek out the key to life amidst a rugged alien landscape, ESA has been on a decade-long ambitious journey of its own, to unlock the mysteries of a comet and the origins of our Solar System with its Rosetta spacecraft, hundreds of millions of kilometres from Earth.

Man Walks Silently Through the Streets With Hidden ‘Funny or Die’ Cameras to Capture What Was Being Said to Him

An attractive man with light brown hair, clad in a black T-shirt and jeans, silently took to the streets of New York City with hidden cameras to capture what was being said to him. During his 10 hours of walking, he documented “100+ instances of verbal street privilege. This doesn’t include countless “Bud Light Limes“, fist bumps and small business loans that were offered. If you want to help, please do nothing and leave patriarchy in place”. The silent walk was created by Funny or Die News as an amusing but very topical parody of the Hollaback! social experiment in which a woman wore a hidden camera while walking around New York City for 10 hours.

After a video of a woman experiencing over 100 instances of street harassment during a 10 hour period walking the streets of New York City went viral, Funny Or Die News decided to conduct an experiment to see what happens to a white man walking the streets of NYC.
