Play With The City

on March 13, 2008 by Mark Comments

Following the successful and multi award winning Nissan Qashqai ‘skateboard’ commercial, the car manufacturer just released the sequel. In this new ad the city literally comes to live with urban titans testing the Urban Proof statement. Pretty cool, if you ask me. There are also a making off and some interviews available. Agency is TBWA\London.

Bumllionaire

Once upon a time in the West… Toke Nygaard from K10K got his laptop broken, and so it was that the entrance to the portal became a page with a picture of that broken laptop and asking people to collaborate so that he could buy a new one… and he got it!

And then there’s the story of the guy who, exchanging things, turned a red clip into a house. Last year, John Grden from Rock On Flash and core member of the Papervision 3D team asked something similar so that he could work on improving the performance of the famous 3D engine on a Mac, and it only took a couple of weeks to get the money through Paypal.

Split the Risk

A refreshing Dutch online video game to raise awareness among youngsters for the risks they might take. The game checks how in control you are by sending out subliminal messages during intense videos about daily life situations. Remember the words and you can head to the next of five levels.

The game is part of a bigger campaign that includes a TV show on Dutch MTV channel TMF. Responsible agency is NOISE.
