    Video

    Matt also says in the video (I think) that he was wearing a helmet and that he has been appropriately humbled by mountain biking, which he apparently was not doing well. He also says sarcastically it has been a lot of fun.

    In the video Matt talks about how he's happy to be photographed and talk to the press if they leave the kids alone - he also thanks them at the end for sticking to this. But we can see a toy in this photo - reindeer antlers or a turkey?

    Re: Video

    I think the toy is the snowman character from Frozen. I guess the girls enjoyed the movie!

    OK, sorry, but he is completely adorable in this video with the pink backpack. Ha, ha. What a great dad.

    Re: Video

    He's great in the video with fans when he has a lot of excuses not to be.

    Well spotted on the Frozen character (Olaf?)

    Clooney interview

    An early interview by George for Monuments Men. And the joking starts already. I hope they're serious in interviews for the sake of promoting this film, which seems to have enough tone issues already. Acting as frat boys for their own amusement isn't going to sell the film to adults, which will be the majority of the audience.

    Re: Clooney interview

    However most of what Clooney said has anchors that majority of the audience can associate with. The movie itself doesn't have an all-serious tone by the looks of the trailer (not as serious as the Nazis anyhow). M..

    And on other surveys it's about number six. It's doing OK.

    Re: World Economic Forum

    Maybe Matt could make a movie addressing why so many people lack water and toilets (ref: water.org). Are the governments of those doing anything to solve the crisis? If not why not, and where is international aid going, if in receipt of? How do the leaders/politicians of that country live (are they on toilet strike?) or do they live in bling bling land like my own so-called Sovereign/Royals, when the final resort after government failings (charities) use money for real estate and serve stale bread and out of date junk food (no family meals) in food banks.
