    The glasses say it all. Well known throughout the European music scene and abroad for his ultra bright, bold Oakley eyewear and an even bolder personality, Wally Lopez stands out like a highlighter in a box of charcoal. Literally. The Oakley International Electronic Dance Music (EDM) artist/producer has been shaking the planet with deep, ear busting, bass-heavy tech-house tracks since the early 2000’s. And one thing is certain. This funky Spaniard simply can’t stop the beat. Officially stepping onto the scene with a massive remix of his friend (and House music megastar) David Guetta’s track, Just a Little More Love in 2002, Wally, who’s undoubtedly the top DJ in his native Spain, has been a bright staple in the Ibiza party scene – holding a super prominent residency at the island’s famed Space Ibiza venue.

So it’s no surprise that the latest reality-based film in Hollywood to shed light on their super secretive, incredible work, would also place Oakley in the spotlight. Zero Dark Thirty, which traces the footsteps of military and intelligence operates over the past decade in their quest to eliminate Osama Bin Laden, features O protective/performance eyewear (Oakley Fast Jacket) throughout the film.

    Admit it. You loved the movie Knocked Up. And you got fully warm and fuzzy as your soda shot out of your nostrils from the sheer comedy and romantic undertone. We know. Well get pumped, because the sequel, This is 40, is dropping on Christmas. And it’s laced with Oakley flavor, of course. As Pete and Debbie carry on with their own lives a few years after the events of the original flick – and run into the crisis of turning 40 years old – Pete, played by the ever-funny Paul Rudd, rocks his full on cycling kit. And we all know that it’s not a world class cycling kit without Oakley eyewear.
