Wow, these are pretty unique. Im an ice cream lover and must say these look pretty exotic.These days if it’s not unique, its got to be unconventional. Especially with so much hype around colorful foods, the black waffles here is actually standing out from the mass.
A while back I talked about how technologies can make a difference to our lives. That is, if you allowed it to do so. There are definitely people who embraced change while there are many who are traditional deep down. The place where I worked gave me opportunities to speak to people that uses trackers like fitbit. Patricia Lauder took notice of her Fitbit when it begin to display a peculiar result of her heart rate. It reports an alarmingly high resting heart rate exceeding 140 beats per minute and this caused her to notify 911 immediately. It was later confirmed that there were blood clots in both her lungs and her heart would have to work more in order to balance from the lowered oxygen levels. She was able to get the clots treated and removed within 24hours. Data is important, especially data that can protect our valuable lives.
Brilliant copy is not easily distinguishable. As creatives, we pare through copious amount of work everyday just to get the best copy. But the average people don’t. And that is exactly the problem: clients sometimes allow themselves to get carried away by injecting so much details and unnecessary information in their marketing, resulting in poor traction. The truth is, nobody actually reads long copy. This video tells it all by showing how much it takes just to make people read, even if it means getting freebies. Arguably, it could be how it is done but i do recognise the fact that people barely give a damn especially when they are commuting. This opera house in Stockholm is showing ‘God Disguised’, a lyrical suite in 1940 from Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson and lyrics writer Hialmar Gullberg. Folkopearn does this really well with their message for ‘God Disguised’. Let this be a lesson for us to relook at how we should better portray our communications. Even if fortune is to come, it would still need one to be receptive to it. Whether it is disguised or not.
Who doesn’t love booze with great company after work? We all do. And for the most part of it, beer always taste better with good food. Never mind the traditional pair up of beer with pastas or burgers, chips are still the best choice. Probably still the most popular choice for an after work soccer match with your homies! Now, Doritos have once again created something interesting. The Frito-Lay continues to amaze me with their Tostitos’s “Party Safe” bag. Wait a minute, did I just said party safe? Yes i did. That means you now party without the constant fear of driving home drunk.
The pack of chips is actually going to heighten your awareness of alcohol level as well as do the favour of getting you a decent ride home. Pretty nifty trick i did say.
A concept by Goodby Silverstein & Partners, the bag comes equipped with a device that is connected with a microcontroller. It is somewhat calibrated to detect alcohol from the person’s breath. Should the sensors detect alcohol presence, it immediately signals red and what you see is an image of a steering wheel! On top of that, an Uber code is created, indicating a message: “Don’t drink and drive”.
With near-field communication (NFC) technology, you can even tap the bag with your smartphone to activate the ride. With all the campaigns going on against drunk driving and Uber’s ongoing promotions, Tostitos are throwing n the $10 off deals during the period as well as after the Feb 5 Super bowl game. Well played.
You can’t expect anything more crazy than this. A literal yet impactful approach taken by Volkswagen Denmark to introduce the direct sales of cars online. I think the idea of having it so direct creates the powerful message of how easily one can own a Volkswagen. Funny as this stunt might seem to be, it sure delivers a good conversation starter. Das Auto.
Simple yet concise. There are things about the Japanese culture which makes it so unique and attractive. Be it their music, culture or fashion, everything seems to have that very special flair that could almost transcend reality. Clothes that might look so weird and ideas so radical making its way on to the streets, becoming an everyday affair is proof of the society’s acceptance to constant change. How did youth culture transformed traditional mentality into what it is today? Check out this video by Japanese agency, Hakuhodo, as they create this amazing mash of music video to illustrate the transition of times for Beams in the last 40 years. Amazing work.
With the proliferation of mobile games, the gaming industry began to see increased trends of people devoting a large portion of their time and finance into this area of entertainment. As an active gamer, I am also guilty being part of this staggering number of gamers. Now, does that mean console gaming and arcade gaming is losing its appeal? The answer is a Yes and a No. You probably notice the decrease in traffic in your neighborhood’ LAN shops, cyber cafes and arcades. But on the other hand, you see people gripping tightly on to their mobile phones on the train and completely sticking their face into the games wherever they go. This makes you doubt the survivability of traditional gaming. However, Nintendo proves us wrong by actually playing the “catching-up” game. Check out their new console, aka ‘NX’. It is the hybrid of both console and mobile gaming experiences.
Have you check out their trailer? its fantastic. It brings out the essence of the brand and also packs all the function and features of this new tech. Personally, I think they did an awesome job.
NIKE’s 2016 commercial, ‘The Next Wave’ is the epitome of good cameratography combined with a solid storyboard. If you are blown away by this video, then you should know this was made possible through the skills of camera operator “Gimbalninja”. The Austrian is famous for his daredevil attitude when it comes to shooting dangerous stunts and absolutely challenging actions in motion. Akin to a first person shooter game experience, the camera experience for the viewer allows one to see the ninja’s perspective. The clip allows you to see how the story flow in very exciting angles all across Beijing and Hong Kong. It was able to feature a nicely curated film of several different sports overlapping smoothly. In short, getting the right script is important but executing a piece of really good work requires getting the best person for the job. Albeit a niche occupation, it is definitely a highly sought after skill set. Check out the videos below.
A video that will not take you too long to figure out the importance of having the right support for you as well as your children’s dreams. This is probably not the first time we have seen such a script, but stories like this tend to warm the heart and deliver the message effectively. It resonates with many and gives you that tint of light, enough to drive you forward and accomplish that one wish you had. Simple, inspiring and lovely.
