Birds vs Humans Pt 2

on October 12, 2009 by Mark Comments

Pt 2 of Birds Vs Humans this afternoon. I was delivered a locked wooden box which had a tag on the front that asked me to revisit the website. Once I did that I was given a code to unlock the box. Inside was a stack of fresh apples and a cooler filled with ice and bottles of the new cider 5 Seeds. The facebook page also had further content uploaded revealing the creative idea behind all the hype. Cool hype campaign and looks like the production values are huge! The agency is Holler.

Shocking Barack

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

Remember when automotive CEOs went to Washington DC asking for loans? This website called “Shocking Barack” from Brammo powercycles seeks to redo the same route but instead of asking for aid, they will try to show President Obama a proposal based on electric energy as a feasible solution to the transportation crisis. So this site is to follow the trip (starting tomorrow) and asking people to spread the word and collaborate if possible with a place to stay or to charge the vehicles, go check it out or follow them on Twitter.

Put on a panto and become a star

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

Robinsons Drinks is one of the most famous juice brands in the UK, and now they’re looking for a star making auditions all over the place. This website, “Put on a panto”, is a fantastic place to start your rehearsing, with beautiful content and animations done by Pirata London for BBH London.

VW Polo and the timeless 50

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

I liked this one by Tribal DDB London for the new Volkswagen Polo, what does it take to be considered timeless? Assuming that the car has been built under that idea, the site VW Timeless Polo collects different options from worlds such as fashion, food, design, music and television for people to choose what do they consider the 50 of them that will become as timeless as the car, so it’s a good way to rediscover lots of time and history.

Dachis Group and transparency

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

Funny site done by Dachis Group (a company that optimizes businesses through technology) for themselves, all the current activity within their offices is monitorized and published in their home page, such as blog posts, reading emails, twitterings, and so on.

Shampoo for a good date

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

Luli Fernandez is one of the most beautiful stars in argentinean television and now she’s also starring on this website called “Sin pelo no es lo mismo” (“without hair it isn’t the same) done by BBDO Argentina for Head and Shoulders shampoo (emphazising the hair protection factor), where you have to pick the right lines to get a date with her. Nicely done and making a good use of 3D sound, what a pity it’s only in spanish, would be nice if there was an english version or at least some subtitles to get its audience bigger.

Lufthansa “My Sky Status”

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

MySkyStatus is a fine website-app by Profero NY that sends altitude, location, departure and arrival updates to your FB or Twitter account from the different flights you choose (in any airline). Ideal for those people who have to pick other people up at airports. Wouldn’t be nice a mobile app for this?

In bed

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

“In bed” is a wonderful and well-crafted site on a non-easy subject as it is erectile dysfunction. Through a series of beautiful animations we can follow a man’s journey from being so troubled because of his problem to become a self-confident guy with no problems at all in this field anymore.

Battle for Milkquarious

on October 11, 2009 by Mark Comments

Probably you remember this fantastic work that was released almost a year ago for the new Mario game for Nintendo Wii. One of the most interesting things about it (beyond its quality) consists on the category schizophrenia under which this piece was submitted to festivals. It’s a banner, but also a viral intended video, or a landing page or even an online branded content… but in the end, who cares about that? Now, that was the first thing i thought when i saw a new website continuing the adventures of White Gold and Got Milk?, the one where Goodby Silverstein & Partners and Hi-ReS! have teamed up to create the first opera rock about milk: The Battle for Milkquarious, an hilarious and insightful (about milk) movie with new stories coming from the trip of White Tiger trying to save his beloved Strawberry Summers and finally discovering a terrible secret (LOL) Besides that, there’s plenty of information and stuff on how to relive each scene, making-off, and so on, in a fantastic experience even though it’s not very much interactive, but the film is so great that does anybody care? As in previous cases such as this one and this other one, “Battle for Milkquarious” is an online film shown under a URL instead of being in a video website, and i spent like twenty minutes in it because it was entertaining enough as to catch my attention that long, even if i don’t know, again, the category of that.

Birds Vs Humans

on October 7, 2009 by Mark Comments

Ok – so I walked in this morning and found a WW2 artillary case on my desk. Inside was a rolled up note saying Adverblog. Your kind needs you. www.birdsvshumans.com.au/nointeractive It also contained some creepy photos of people all beaten up, a birds nest, feathers and eggs and some paper bark. The link took me to a customised teaser vid that looks kind of like the Blair Witch Project – weird!! The box had a tag on it that said – More to follow. A whois check on the domain owner revealed nothing… I guess I will have to wait until package two arrives. I love a good teaser…
