ECIS2014

Everyone likes a little dash of awesomeness in his or her life now and then, if not as a participator then at least to look at from a secure distance in awe. The UK Pepsi Max ad featuring daredevil stuntman Damien Walters popped up on several media websites as “video of the day” this week while time will tell if the action packed Jägermeister ad will follow in the viral footsteps already laid.
