The Day After Tomorrow Greenpeace spoofsite

It didn't take Greenpeace too long to spoof the movie website The day after tomorrow with their own version; The day after tomorrow.org, and we wouldn't expect less from the green cyberactivists.

Greenpeace twists the movies climate change drama around by asking: "The Day After Tomorrow - Who will you blame?"

"Millions of people will see this film and want to do something about the growing menace of global warming. When they visit our site, they'll learn about the real life disaster of climate change - currently being directed by Esso and produced by George W Bush," said Rob Gueterbock of Greenpeace. "This movie may be fiction, but climate change is real and we know who the bad guys are."

Greenpeace website includes movie trailers, featuring real impacts of climate change and the possibility to change the outcome of it by "taking action" now. Hat tip to Michiel

WET the revival - Google has their own blog

Remember WET magazine? Jennifer Sharpe has uploaded two whole issues of this late seventies gem just in time for us ripping the look in our current early eighties revival... In short, awesome eyecandy!

Meanwhile the prediction that everyone (and their animated spokescreatures) will soon have their own blog is truer that true. Google just started their own blog Googleblog, where they'll post Regular bloggy things: What Larry had for breakfast. What Sergey thinks of that Hellboy movie. Which Dawson's Creek character reminds us most of Eric. And perhaps, news about Google.....

Ford Ka Cat decapitation ad update.

The controversial viral cat decapitation ad for ford Ka which gathered many more complaints than their pigeon killing car last year has also gathered much more press. While Snopes was out early debunking and rebunking the ad, and we posted it April 02 the day after the 'leak', the hype hasn't calmed down yet! A quick search leads to many news articles about the 'unauthorized' ad.
