On Buzzing Bees I found this great work from nobody else than North Kingdom, It's a game they created for Coke Zero in Germany "The Coke Zero Game" (could have been more inventive). God knows that after the "Get the Glass" campaign they are really on the top of my list and yet again they score with this game, the only downfall is that it's in German (of course).
The mixture of 3D and movie is really perfect and this all with a good game-play makes this site yet again an award winning one. Even if your German is rusty like mine don't let that stop you from going to the site and experience this marvel (you don't have to inscribe you can just play the different games).
When you see the next clip you'd really long for the global warming days to come but I fear the reality is somehow different.
Today I stumbled upon a video from Nokia where they explain a concept that they are working on together with the university of Cambridge called Morph. The technology they show is nanotechnology and the use it would have in our every day life. When I saw this move I was totally bedazzled it's incredible what they show here and for sure our technological future looks more than promising.
It has been a long time since my last post but I'm happy to say that last week I survived a P1. Now what's a P1, it's not a thunder storm nor an earthquake or a Hurricane; a P1 one is a Priority one issue. The fact is that last week we had a problem with the release of an application for one of my favorite clients and this problem quickly became a priority one issue this meant total and I really mean total availability in time and means. For me physically it meant working till 2o clock and getting up around 6 and that with a minimal of time spend on food or any other leisure that pops up in your mind (sleep included). But I'm happy to say that both the project and me survived an are now in a pretty good shape. It surely was an adventure but one I hope won't occur very often as I am sure in stress and work load this was one of the hardest weeks in my whole "career" and I needed a few days to recover from it.
Anyway I'll start again full throttle with so many thing that I've missed over the past week and that I'm longing to share with my readers.
Louis Vuitton created a new commercial, to my opinion it's not really a commercial it's pure art, just sit back and enjoy.
A superb commercial for Durex vibrators, I'll definitely think twice before I eat a cucumber ;-)
In Belgium a little YouTube movie made a whole lot of fuzz, it made the national news, it got in the newspapers, ... Actually it was a movie about Jean Bultot a guy that is/was under suspicion of having bands with the "Bende van Nijvel". On the old sex movie you see this person in a bath full of jelly in a nightclub. "The Brabant Killers" in English was a group of criminals thought to be responsible for the massacre of Brabant, a series of violent attacks that occurred during the 80's in Belgium. Actually the whole fuzz was about nothing cause apparently the movie had been shown on the french national television and a guy just decided to post it on YouTube without any bad intentions. In the meanwhile the account of the person that uploaded the movie has been erased and the movie itself also but when you talk about Internet the spread those things can't be stopped so here is the Movie uploaded by another person.
I received this one some time ago from a colleague of mine and indeed sometimes my wife complains that our dinner looks just like this.
Just kidding ;-), but I thought it was well worth publishing.
One I found on the The FWA is a presentation of Nikon and the camera's they produce. The work they did there to present the product is really great, it doesn't only look good but it's also extremely well explained. I like the use of pictures and still have the feeling that you are looking at a movie, it's all well placed and well thought anyway great work and worth a look.
I don't know when this add was created but I saw it on Belgian television yesterday and this is really a great add. Coke really likes co-branded game commercials after WOW we now got a campaign with GTA.
Great commercial for Lingerie from Ann Summers.
65 years is the difference between both images, the last one we all know by now "The Apple MacBook Air", latest evolution in the laptop world. The first image is much less known, it's the ENIAC, short for Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer and was the first general-purpose electronic computer. It's great to see 65 years of computer evolution next to each other.
About a week ago we where looking for a free collaborative space for one of our clients and stumbled upon http://www.basecamphq.com/ although we never came to testing it out it seemed nice. Now Google launched just what we needed Google Apps Team Edition it really seems to have everything we where looking for, a place to share or create docs, share a calendar, integrated chat and share any other kind of information. It's all well explained in the movie below.
Following on from the recent Bravia 'Play-Doh' ad, Sony has designed a new moving animation screensaver of their Play-Doh bunnies available for download onto your mobile phone via the following URL.
The process is simple – just download the video to your desktop and then transfer the video on to your phone via a USB lead.

To celebrate Valentine's Day Studio Brussel and more specifically the morning show from Peter Van de Veire and Sophie Lemaire created an action to invite 50 couples to join them in bed. You'll find more about this action here. But why do I post this here well I really like their spot to announce this all.
A great spot for Adidas right from the shop from their first creator Adi Dassler. I also just learned from where the name Adidas came, just have a look and enjoy cause this work is really great.
Apparently you can buy the domain name www.iexplorer.com. The minimal offer is $10.000 but the asking price is $200.000, quite a bargain isn't it??? I'm really wondering who's going to buy this.
Yesterday evening I had a conversation with Ana Yoeng the lady that gave me the hat tip for the Jawbone virals about how well we (Belgian people) can captivate and see the message behind those virals and campaigns and not judge everything immediately. A few hours later I stumbled upon this viral/commercial.
It's one for more human home-care from the Dutch (nl) Socialist Party. For me this viral goes really well over the top, I think it's untasteful and not really for publication. But than again I guess that the Belgian audience is still more conservative than the audience from the Netherlands.
Yesterday I received a mail from a nice lady from a digital marketing agency in San Francisco who gave me a hat tip for the new Jawbone (you know the Bluetooth headsets) virals. The agency behind those virals is Anomaly. Jawbone launched a new product range of design headsets with noise reduction, to announce this range they created a set of really provocative, stereotype movies. You can have a look at the site where you'll find the 4 movies but below I included the most impressive one all though they are all 4 definitely worth a look.
Again thanks Ana for the tip.
Lately I've been seeing lots of good virals that's why so many found their way to my blog. This one is quite chocking, if you are unaware of the danger it really gives you a good warning. It has been created for MTV for their Aids awareness campaign.
