Jura whisky crowd sources its tasting notes for a JuraTastival

Jura single Malt Whiskey crowd sourced its tasting notes to create a garden of taste that lived at their annual Whisky Festival. Famed food art curator Miss Cakehead created the interactive installation that illustrated the crowd sourced tasting notes. Thus festival goers were treated to a surreal Willy Wonka-meets-Beetlejuice world of rows of shoes for leather, a bed of chocolate as well as a leather suitcase and bones representing musky depth, or something.

Toyota Camry Thrillride vs #NissanROYL

Looks like it's time to Badland the car bait&switch. First Toyota showed us the ThrillRide last year, where a track was built outside Magic Mountain, and excited roller coaster fans got to try being passengers in a "boring" car doing all sorts of un-boring tricks. The stunt drivers went fast, up, down, in reverse and the passengers all were surprised that Camry could be so exciting. Like, wow.

This is just a heads up that the RIAA takedown notice kerfluffle has been sorted out, and honestly it was just as simple as changing the music bed to another version of the "Dvořák - Symphony No. 9" used in the ad for B-classical music festival. The previous version had 42,977 views on the waveya2011 Youtube channel and a whopping 3,471,206 views on Bclassic's own youtube channel, for those keeping score at home.

STYLEPIT introduces a scrolling lookbook

Online fashion retailer Stylepit decided to create a lookbook to showcase all the cool brands they have on offer, so they created this nifty panning site.

Danish agency Uncle Grey took a phantom flex camera, put it on a track, and scrolled through a subway platform. There you could click on a highlighted person and see the article of clothing in color. It is a nice way to navigate, though my wifi is acting spotty today, so there was a lot of lag unfortunately. Just as well. I found more than a few things I could have bought.
