Rodman FT is a revolutionary basketball game released today for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, developed using the latest available hardware and software. It was built using the advanced Unity 3D Game Engine and footage of Dennis Rodman shooting free throws. In addition to the regular levels there is also an Augmented Reality challenge level, allowing players to play against each other by distracting the shooting opponents. To enable both players to view the action live on a TV screen the device can be connected to it via a cable or wirelessly using an AppleTV. Gameplay is as simple as it should be for a casual game – you control Dennis using one finger. One gesture is enough to give the ball direction and strength. The scoring system and realism make this game addictive. The game locations were shot in and around Los Angeles, California and the footage of Dennis was shot in Miami, Florida. The game is true to his nature and by using in-app purchases players can buy additional hair colors and outfits for Dennis to wear. From the standard white jersey to a translucent pink top and shiny golden dress, and from yellow, red or green hair to a hat with feathers. One can play in true Dennis Rodman style. The game is free and without ads. Tantrum Solutions Ltd is a London based indie iOS and Mac OSX game development company. Since the release of their first game in 2010, several of their games have been featured by Apple on iTunes and have won praise and awards for their quality. The company has recently diversified its offerings and is now also making casual games aimed at all age groups.

A site by Hotels.com encourages people to substitute their faces and the faces of friends for those of actors in videos that nod to “The Hangover.” In a Web promotion reminiscent of the movie, Hotels.com is encouraging people to cast themselves in their own hotel misadventures by substituting their faces and the faces of friends for those of actors in provocative videos. On a site for the campaign, TripYourFace.com, a user can upload a photo from a Facebook profile and profile photos of up to three friends. After choosing the actors to superimpose the faces onto, users crop uploaded faces, adjusting brightness and color to match those of the actors, and then are taken to a screen that features a hotel room in New York, Las Vegas or Paris. As in “The Hangover,” each features a tableau of unconscious characters in a room in disarray. In Paris, for example, feathers are strewn all over a room where four blindfolded musicians, in formal attire, are slumped over their instruments, a fencer in a white outfit and mask is asleep in a chair, and Dennis Rodman, the retired basketball player, is passed out shirtless in a bed along with two lingerie-clad women. Clicking one of three play buttons in the scene prompts a video “flashback” that helps piece together the scene: for Paris, one clip shows the two women in a pillow fight, then tearing off Mr. Rodman’s shirt as he sprays the room with Champagne. But with the face substitutions, one actress ripping off Mr. Rodman’s shirt can instead be a Facebook user’s friend. And a segment of the video, starring that unwitting friend, can be posted directly to her Facebook profile, which Hotels.com of course hopes will prompt her to visit the Trip Your Face site and subsequently engage other friends in the campaign.
Prince Marketing Group has negotiated an extension on Hulk Hogan's deal to be primarily focused on a series of radio spots throughout the year. The original campaign began in early July of 2010, with Hogan featured in a variety of television and radio advertising commercials promoting the direct financier title loan company, 1-800-LoanMart. Currently signed to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), Hogan had maintained mainstream popularity from the mid 80s through today as the all-American, working-class hero character Hulk Hogan in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF-now World Wrestling Entertainment). 1-800LoanMart is a direct financier title loan company that enables car owners to achieve their financial objectives by supplying them with a car loan through financing methods that are secured by the value of the car, and not by the customer's credit. 1-800-Loan Mart is licensed by the California Department of Corporations and a member of the Better Business Bureau.
When Magic Johnson, the retired N.B.A. star, appeared in commercials
for Converse sneakers in the 1980s, he and a rival, Larry Bird, engaged
in trash talk. In a new commercial for Dove Men and Care, Mr. Johnson

“My father had a trash-hauling service,” Mr. Johnson says in the spot,
by Davie Brown Entertainment, part of Omnicom. “Kids would always tease
you: ‘Aw, there goes the trashman.’ But my father was confident and
never even blinked an eye, so it made me stand tall, because he stood
As family photographs appear onscreen, including one of Mr. Johnson as a teenager with his arm around his father, he says, “My name is Magic Johnson, and I’m definitely comfortable in my own skin.”
