Err… last month was the first time since the crazy days of November 06 that a month has passed without a post… so now I’m going to do a little overcompensating…
So the DROID is here… is it the one we are looking for?
Highly renowned US Agency Cliff Freeman closed it’s doors. The agency was famous for producing TVCs that were actually funny (well for advertising at least). I heard a rumour somewhere that when presenting work to one of the Creative Directors, you would know if he liked it not by getting a laugh out of him… but by him just saying in a monotone voice “Laugh”…
Here’s one of the “classics” they produced for outpost.com during the day…
Giff o the day…
Burger King / CP+B does AR… of course they do… they always do the thing… while the rest of us just talk about the “thing”
You doesn’t love a good flow chart…
Pretty “off the wall” interface… yep.
Remember when this was the shizzle for interfaces?
Illustrator Emma Kelly and her site… iliketodrawthings.com
This is a bit of all right… Kasabian Football Hero… Underdog is a pretty good song to boot! (accidental)
Pretty neat idea for a desktop:
Mitten scarfs… another good idea:
mmm… theme… good ideas?
The Dyson Air Multiplier…
How about lip gloss that can help detect date rape drugs?
Or a syringe that can only be use once.
Mainly flogged from PSFK.
Want to learn how to dress like Don Draper?
And for the laydeez… a Tetris dress
How about smart artist James Hopkins and his Spirit Level?
Or what would happen if the internet disappeared for the day? (Via: Ray)
Pretty Stupid stuff…
Now this is pretty much the opposite…
So basic idea is… one guy from the company (Brammo) and one guy from the agency (CP+B) ride the new electric motorbikes (the Enertia) they are both trying raise awareness (sell) for… all the way from Detroit (Motor City) to Washington (D.C.) They will (have) couch surf, tweet, glide silently and stop to plug these pretty machines in every now and then all the way in hope of not just raising awareness but also raising the attention of the Barack Obama whom the goal is to give the bike to… now because it’s taken me so long to write this they’ve already made the trip… (listen to the story here: http://www.justin.tv/fearlessqa) and whilst they may not have succeeded… they did get meet with the US Secretary of Energy and get their message across. Not bad.
The route was chosen as it was the journey the big boys from the car companies took with their hats in their hands to ask for bailout money from the prez.
These are the keys to the bike and the bike lock they have left somewhere if Washington for the Prez tho pick up when he has a spare 5mins.
How about The Editors hacking/mashing streetview in a promo for their latest album…
Now everybody has been posting this… but that’s because it’s petty rad…
Mick Jaggers letter/brief to Andy Warhol…

There has to be a TED video in here somewhere now doesn’t there… how about this one from Rory Sutherland? WATCH!
Then how about a little bit more digital / outdoor/ realtime / nonsense?
