Link Lust: Linking Rain Cherry Chocolate Rain **breathe

Adland: 

Heeey, there's now an Alexa Toolbar for Firefox called Sparky that works on Macs. When did this happen? Give it a whirl, because you can never have too many silly add-ons.

Slideshows are soo last year. Make animated videos instead with animoto.com

These links brought to you by the Cherry Chocolate rain Dr Pepper ad sung by Tay Zonday.

Bonus: something about Playstation and an account win here, I dunno my retinas melted befor I had time to read it all thanks to that truly scary picture of Donny Deutsch in speedos that I hadn't seen before. Thanks a lot George.

    Interesting, used that sparky to go to details of Adland and got a link to how it looked in the past. I had forgotten all those looks.

    That Dr Pepper drink sounds disgusting but I'll try it just for the ad.

    The NYT just wrote a piece on this: Homemade YouTube Video Lands Singer in a Web Ad

    Soft drink companies have often based ad campaigns around pop singers, but they are usually mainstream acts like Michael Jackson or Britney Spears, not an online curiosity like Mr. Zonday, who does not have a record contract.

    “We’re doing this to try to do something fun and different and connect with consumers who might not see more traditional media,” said Jaxie Alt, the director for marketing at Dr Pepper, which worked with True Entertainment, a production company, in August to approach Mr. Zonday about reworking “Chocolate Rain.” Neither Mr. Zonday nor Dr Pepper would disclose how much Mr. Zonday received for the "Cherry Chocolate Rain" video.
