Youtube "thumbnail-banner ad" - the thumbnails returned in search create a giraffe.

Here's an odd idea, to see it simply search for # DouptoYoutubeBanner on youtube. (or click that working link so you don't have to type so much). Ad agency twentythree in Israel - the guys who kidnapped Alex Bogusky's facebook page remember? - created this little stunt for Doupto.com.

Agency: twentythree, (Israel, Tel-Aviv)
Client: www.DoUpTo.com
Creative: Erez Rubinstein, Yossi Tzarfati
