Pot Noodle - Why try harder - (2011) :30 (UK)

Dude becomes a WAG because he likes the easy life. And therein lies the funny. Anyone else in serious lust for a battery-driven gold-plated spork now?

 

Creative Social presents "Who's Idea is it Anyway?"

Creative Social presents Creative Looting in London Tuesday, 8 November 2011. Simon Sankarayya, Tom Erslinger, Liz Sivell, Andy Sandoz and Dave Bedwood will be talking about idea-poaching vs idea-inspiration. Not in the Inevitable Creative Outcomes, vs Lazy, vs creative theft way, or the what clients call digital layouts lawyers call copyright infringement way.

Lets QR code everything! QR code generator ovah here.

The QR code hype is reaching fever pitch now what with the QR code rooftop ads and the QR code cookies. About time really since they were invented way back in 1994 (and I put them in the same category as the cuecat - category being: why?)

Selling British Cassoulet in Castelnaudary provokes the French

Mon dieu! An Englishman descends on Castelnaudary to sell British Cassoulet. This is all kinds of wrong, and the French people at the market are not amused. Love the insult "are you born in February? You're a few days short!" Some people are so provoked by this little stunt it seems that another 100 year war is about to start. Va te faire foutre, trouduc! Brûle en enfer.

Of course, it's just an ad. For the real cassoulet from La Belle Chaurienne. British Harry and the web page lecassouletdharry.com leads you to the real deal. Breathe easy, dear French. And put down those crossbows.

Leviathan's live projection design for Drake's 2011 OVO Festival

Leviathan's live projection design for Drake's 2011 OVO Festival

Following the success of several recent live performance projection mapping feats, design-focused, Chicago-based production studio Leviathan partnered with its frequent collaborator VJ Vello Virkhaus once again... this time for platinum selling, Grammy nominated recording artist Drake's sold out OVO Festival, which took place in Toronto in early August. The stage's structural set consisted of gigantic columns with retractable scrims, upon which a barrage of animated type, colorful patterns and ambient effects were projected. To highlight performances by musical guest Stevie Wonder, the team utilized a Kinect sensor to capture a surreal point-cloud avatar of the artist, which was projected live on the set for more than 16,000 fans in attendance.
