Groundhog Day Super Bowl Commercial

We’ve already seen Bryan Cranston recreate The Shining for Mountain Dew, Rick and Morty get invaded by Pringles, and a bunch of pop culture characters pick up groceries at Walmart.

But there’s something different about Groundhog Day this time, and you’ll just have to see what it is in the full commercial. Read More »

Groundhog Day VR Video Game

“Okay, campers, rise and shine and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cold out there today! It’s cold out there everyday. What is this Miami Beach?”

Yesterday was Groundhog Day, and hopefully you were one of the many who partook in the annual tradition of watching the classic holiday comedy directed by the late Harold Ramis.

However, don’t be so fast to groan and roll your eyes. This isn’t a sequel produced by Hollywood trying to recapture the magic of the original. Instead, this is an intriguing twist on the concept in the form of a Groundhog Day VR video game.
