The fastest click

It has been a while since we witness notable work from Singapore. This one sure has some fun to it. Kinetic Singapore recently developed a youtube commercial which reliefs viewers from pesky sponsored ads on YouTube. The idea here is to challenge viewers against the speed of the new Mini John Cooper by having them hit the skip button as fast as possible. Aligning to the message that the MINI is fast, and at the same time helping viewers to cope with repetitive ad skipping moments. Interesting way to balance between psychological time and objective time. Read more about why performance matters here. So here you go, make objective time less annoying, communicates your clients message and marry them with an interesting yet engaging execution. Nice.

The power of PAPER

Do not underestimate the power of traditional media. If used correctly, the impact it generates can be extremely viral. Honda recently curated this very cool animation which documents their long heritage of innovation. With almost six decades worth of history to cast, the automotive brand calls upon a huge pool of recognised animators to whip out a truly awesome animation comprising copious amount of illustrations. This video project, “Paper”, is the work of 3,000 hand-drawn illustrations being stitched together by stop-motion. It documents the long heritage of Honda by bringing the audience through a journey of their technology and products from the beginning to now. Very captivating.

Retro Modernism

I loved the 80s. Being born in the 80s meant my early childhood was spend on this really really awesome era where we got nice cartoons, toys, pixelated graphics, cars and lots of crazy stuffs we don’t see these days in the digital age. I still collect vintage toys which reminiscence my time when i was a kid. Nostalgia is definitely one of the emotions that sometimes spun brilliant creative work. Check out SquirrelMonkeyCom and their take for the 80s. They recreated what seem like today’s technology appearing back in the 80s. Oh i love how they crafted these really awesome videos. Check out these videos below to see how today’s Google, Wikipedia, Skype…etc would look like on a 80s operating system!

Some things never change

Some things never change. One example is great amazing brands like Coca-Cola. It continues to inspire us and stay as part of our lives, offering that goodness it did back in the 40s. And it still taste just as GOOD. A new commercial by Coca-Cola features life back then and how life is right now. While we see that apart from changes in the clothes we wore, the cars we drive, we also see that there isn’t much change to our lives. At the end, we are still taking that little walk with grandpa down the park while enjoying a bottle of Coca-Cola. Some thing has never change and will never change.

“Live like grandpa did. Move more, eat well, take it easy”
