The Folks at Droptree are Living Their Best Lives, Probably

I’ve never worked in commercials, but friends of mine have. They’ve told me that, especially because of the time and budget constraints, the work can be tough, the schedules brutal, and sometimes (not always, but sometimes) they’d be working for employers who were bitter. Those employers usually were people who felt burned out, people who felt that their work in commercials left them creatively drained.

But don’t tell that to the gang at Droptree Productions.

If you’ve never heard of this Portland, Oregon-based commercial production company, don’t worry, there’s absolutely no reason why you would have (I hadn’t, until today). Although you may have seen some of their work! They’ve worked on ads for all sorts of companies, like:

Nike — "Your Unlimited Starts Now" from DROPTREE PRODUCTIONS on Vimeo.

GNC — "Just Ask — Sarah" :30 from DROPTREE PRODUCTIONS on Vimeo.

Coors — "Persistence" Director's Cut from DROPTREE PRODUCTIONS on Vimeo.

Ricola — "Immunity Strength" from DROPTREE PRODUCTIONS on Vimeo.

Oh, and as they’ve been making a name for themselves as a production company, they’ve also apparently been SECRETLY SHOOTING A MUSIC VIDEO ON THE SETS OF THEIR COMMERCIALS OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS, built largely out of B-roll, shots picked up behind the scenes and, from the looks of it, sometimes right in the scenes.

The result is a Beastie Boys-inspired song about, well, making commercials, that manages to make their work process look like WAY more fun than any of my friends have ever had.

It’s also a nice reminder that the opportunity for creation and fun are all around you, if you know where to look.

Or, at least, if you know when the client isn’t looking.

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

While everyone was sleeping on the night of July 13, Beyoncé gave the world a first look at her twin babies, Rumi and Sir Carter, with a beautiful Instagram photo reminiscent of her maternity shoot. In true Beyoncé fashion, the queen did not warn us or give us any sort of indication that our lives would be forever altered on that fateful night. While fans were certainly overjoyed, Twitter was most definitely abuzz. We scoured Twitter, and here are the best reactions we found.

The Keepers Deconstructs the True Crime Genre to Focus on Women’s Lives 

The Keepers isn’t much of a true crime documentary, at least in the traditional sense of the genre. And that’s to its immense credit. Netflix’s seven-part docudrama flirts with the genre but resists its pitfalls; this series is no whodunit, no he-said-she-said narrative that concludes with neat resolution. Instead,…

Princess Charlene Lives Out Your European Dreams in This Stunning Video

Ever wonder what it’s really like to live like royalty? Well, according to this new video posted to the Prince’s Palace of Monaco’s Facebook page on Thursday, it’s pretty amazing. In the video, which is in celebration of Monaco’s 75th Grand Prix, Princess Charlene and her husband, Prince Albert II, open up about the prestigious and glamorous event. While Charlene arrives by boat (and stuns in a gorgeous halter top, sunglasses, and red lipstick), Albert flies in on a helicopter. The couple then join past Grand Prix winners David Coulthard and Mark Webber at the Monaco Yacht Club to talk about their favorite memories from the auto race’s past. The video, which could easily double as a Hollywood film, also features appearances by Irish racing legend Eddie Jordan and sports journalist Steve Jones. Watch the rare glimpse into royal life above!

Dwayne Johnson Gives Some Lucky Disney Tourists the Surprise of Their Lives

A post shared by therock (@therock) on

Disney has tapped Dwayne Johnson to lead their film adaptation of the Jungle Cruise ride (à la Pirates of the Caribbean), so the Baywatch actor decided to «dive head first» into researching the role on Monday. He hopped aboard the Disney World ride, surprising the hell out of some very lucky tourists. «It was a GREAT day on the river,» he captioned an Instagram photo of his outing. «Learned a lot.. for example, it takes approximately 12.6 minutes for all the passengers to get over the shock of me jumping on the boat and thinking I’m a DJ look-a-like. One passenger even said, ‘Oh the real Rock is much smaller than this guy’. I threw his ass off the boat.»

In addition to giving them a good surprise and providing one woman the opportunity to snap a pic of his «bootaaaay,» he explained why he’s so excited to join the new movie. «Jokes aside (and yes, with me as the Cruise Skipper there will be plenty of puns) this is such an amazing, fantastical and cool world to build out,» he continued. «Best part about this surprise research day was knowing how FUN of an experience we’re gonna work hard to create for families around the world. That’s the part that gets my excited the most. The movie. The ride. The experience. It’s the cruise of a lifetime. And trust me, you’ll want me as your Skipper. Just don’t forget to bring my beer. Next step… we find our visionary director.#SurpriseAroundEveryCorner #ResearchDay #DisneyWorld #AllAboard #JUNGLECRUISE.»

Although the action star has been hard at work promoting The Fate of the Furious, he never misses an opportunity to have a little fun with his fans. Just last week he brought a man to (happy) tears while pulling off some epic photobombs with Jimmy Fallon and had the time of his life while playing with a giant beach ball. Who wouldn’t want him as their Cruise Skipper?!
