get it on with durex

April 2, 2009

not necessarily the funniest viral movies i’ve ever seen but worth watching. and the product is fun, so what the fxxx, right? definitely somewhat different then the usual condom advertising of just the product and a funny or provocative line to go with it. this is about having fun and that comes across.

check ’em out from top to bottom:

LED sheep

April 2, 2009

samsung, one of the consumer electronic companies that usually does stuff more on boring side of life landed now a big hit with their viral video “extreme sheepherding” done by the viral factory.

it is definitely entertaining to watch. having that said i can’t push upcoming thoughts about sony’s extremely successful color campaign aside. the fact that the two companies are direct competitors makes me, from a creative perspective, feel just slightly uncomfortable. anyways check it out so you know what people talk about right now.

the wild things

March 26, 2009

awesome! spike jonze turned the alltime bestseller childrens book “where the wild things are”, originally written and illustrated by maurice sendak, into a movie that’s supposed to come out this year.

who as a child didn’t love the book where a young boy is sent to his room without supper after he misbehaved. once in the room he enters an imaginary forest with monsters…

it’s going to be interesting to see how the director of “being john malkovich” and “jackass: the movie” interprets this tale. quite a jump but jonze is a fantastic director.

earth hour

March 25, 2009

tunr off your lights at home for an hour and support the earth hour.

“THIS YEAR, EARTH HOUR HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO THE WORLD’S FIRST GLOBAL ELECTION, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
EARTH HOUR BEGAN IN SYDNEY IN 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

IN 2009, EARTH HOUR IS BEING TAKEN TO THE NEXT LEVEL, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.”
