Here is a new offering from Wiley, who appears to be putting at least some time aside to make music, in between filming ridiculous adverts and videos for his YouTube account; his latest offering is a lesson in boiling an egg. We kid you not.

Wiley teams up with Giggs and Juelz Santana for this banger Bright Lights. The beat is simple yet mad catchy, while Wiley, Giggs and Santana all go in on their respective verses. Bright lights b-b-b!

Roman Gavras was cast in to direct and a huge warehouse party was thrown just so they could capture the perfect moments. And what a night it was.

[FRESH VIDEO] Kanye West feat. Rihanna & Kid Cudi – All Of The Lights (Alternate Version) by wearesme

“Warning: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.”

After the original video was forced to bear the above warning on YouTube, as a result of pressure from UK charity organisation Epilepsy Action; Kanye West and his team have now released a re-edit of the All Of The Lights video.

Although no better than the disappointing original, it does tease with images of Rihanna posing in a lace dress at the end of the video; as if there wasn’t already enough RiRi flesh on show to get us hot under the collar! Oh and it also won’t trigger epileptic seizures; always a plus!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

[WATCH] Super Bowl XLV Commercials by wearesme

Last night saw the Greenbay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers compete in the 45th annual Super Bowl. The game was held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas where the Lil Wayne backed Packers were eventually crowned champions after a 31-25 victory.

Such is the popularity of the Super Bowl, (last years match drew viewing figures of 106.5 million in the US alone) that advertising slots during the match are the most expensive in the world. This year, a 30 second slot would set you back no less than $3 million. WOW.

As you can imagine; with the adverts carrying such a hefty price tag, only the major companies get in on the action. Companies such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Mercedes Benz and Budweiser compete with each other to come up with the most unique and talked about commercial. Naturally, they rope in all the celebs they can; with the likes of Eminem, P Diddy, Justin Beiber and Kim Kardashian all featuring at some point.

If you didn’t watch the Super Bowl (you missed out!), or we’re subjected to the boring UK coverage; you can watch all of the US adverts on YouTube. Just click on the link below, where you can also vote for your favourite:

That annoying kid from YouTube is back. This time, hes added David Guetta to his phonebook after hooking up with him to ‘perform’ a megamix of his album ‘One More Love’. This video is definitely funnier than the 50 Cent one.

[SME MEETS] Dynamo *Exclusive Interview* by wearesme

Dynamo is arguably the best close-up magician around, having performed to some of the biggest stars in the world. He has performed for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Paris Hilton, Example, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg and of course SME!

Dynamo, born Steve Frayne, grew up on Bradford’s Delph Hill Estate, one of the most violent and deprived estates in the north of England. He first learned magic from his grandfather and developed it during trips to New Orleans.

As word spread about his magic tricks he soon found himself performing on the celebrity circuit for stars like Paris Hilton and Busta Rhymes. He released an independent DVD called ‘Underground Magic’ featuring celebrities such as Coldplay, Gwenyth Paltrow and Snoop Dogg. The DVD generated considerable press in the UK and lead to appearances on shows such as Richard & Judy and a Channel 4 special ‘Dynamo’s Estate Of Mind’.

He followed up ‘Underground Magic’ with the release of the DVD called ‘Concrete Playground’ and his popularity only continues to grow. Most recently Dynamo worked with Panasonic on a promotional campaign for the TA1 Camera, which saw him performing for a host of musicians and DJ’s; all of which he documented using the Panasonic camera.

This week SME were delighted to have the chance to sit down and have a bit of a chat with Dynamo about the year gone by, the year ahead and his taste in music.
