Converse tries to be back

on August 4, 2010 by Mark Comments

Although not in the spotlight in latest times, i’ve always liked Converse, kind of classy for me since the days i started to follow NBA (both Magic and Bird wore Converse). Now they’re owned by Nike and they’re trying to come back with some interesting efforts, like their new site done by R/GA and released today. There i found many product-related stuff, like i.e. how to customize some Chuck Taylor shoes, but also some valuable brand content, like “All summer”, a video i saw a couple of weeks ago at Computerlove (by Anomaly New York and done by Psyop) Guess some things never die and only need a little push to be back

Sly takes over YouTube

on August 4, 2010 by Mark Comments

It’s hard to find new and entertaining ways for a YouTube takeover, but this interview with Sylvester Stallone on his new movie Expendables definitly is. Ok, the destroy thing is not so new, but the interview concept, the integration with the related video’s, the pause button and the ‘don’t forget to share’ part are great. This interview is over!.

Mad Men is back

on July 27, 2010 by Mark Comments

The season premiere for every new season of Mad Men tv series is the key to a lot of efforts, that grow bigger as the audience of the series. So if last year it was about madmenizing ourselves, this year we’ve found other stuff, such as: + a periodic table of Mad Men references, to stay updated of everything’s going on (via Flavorwire) + a job interview to find out which job could you be hired at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce + a funny Jib Jab sendable video where you can put-your-picture in a 3-minute piece that tells about the whole story and its characters + Even a webinar reviewing different marketing topics and present both the 1960′s point of view (by Sterling Cooper) and the 2010 point of view (by HubSpot).

Coke Burn “Ride”

on July 24, 2010 by Mark Comments

Although told as some skaters’ flashback from their last night, this is one of the most accurate videos regarding how an energizing drink (Coke Burn) works: riding into the night until the sun comes up again. The LostAcapulco-Tarantino-esque soundtrack and a (for once) sophisticated look at a place (Mexico City) depicted so many times as wild and decadent (and now tamed by the skaters), makes this video a fantastic piece of work, i don’t think that anybody enjoying it would think of it as advertising even if we all know that it is, what a lovely one from Publicis Mojo.

Introducing the iOscars

on July 22, 2010 by Mark Comments

Not so long ago, it was so complicated to get a short film done. Not anymore with tools such as the iPhone4, so if you have one and while you get your antenna fixed, why not giving it a try at creating something that could be awarded at the iOscars? (via BBH Labs and Freedom and Partners)
