Roger Federer Trickshot Goes Viral

22. August 2010

2 Comments

4 days and 4+ million views, that’s what you get when you throw Roger Federer into a viral video and seed it to perfection. It’s kind of scary when you take a step back and think about how many of these trick-shot-style viral videos are out there (or have been), and how almost every time, no matter [...]

20. August 2010

2 Comments

This is a beautiful behind the scenes video for IBM’s Data Campaign that was release earlier this year, I don’t think it made it to Australia, so it’s the first time I’ve seen any of the campaign creative (sorry if it’s old?!). What I really love about this video isn’t just the fantastic insights and [...]

Chatroulette: The Last Exorcism Campaign

19. August 2010

4 Comments

I didn’t realise anyone was still using Chatroulette since the hype died off, let alone running campaigns through it, but for what it’s worth, this is a pretty cool (but predictable) campaign for “The Last Exorcism” horror movie. It features a girl interacting with people through the web cam, giggling as she looks to unzip her top for the guys on the [...]

16. August 2010

0 Comments

You probably remember Blu’s last stop motion painted film called COMBO, it was an amazing creative piece. Well this one 12 months on is probably even better, and has almost 3 million combined views between YouTube & Vimeo in just 4 weeks. This time, the animation is BLU’s view on how the world might have [...]

The Expendables YouTube Takeover

9. August 2010

2 Comments

This is the latest campaign element for the launch of The Expendables movie, a YouTube takeover that features as an interrupted interview with Sylvester Stallone. While I love YouTube takeovers, I felt a little let down by this one (I’ve got high standards!), but only because they played it a little safe, for such an action packed movie, [...]

Video: Killa Appz

5. August 2010

2 Comments

What a way to get your portfolio noticed! Props to Dave Berzack on his video “Killa Appz”, a hilarious rap about his passion for web dev! So the video as of now is sitting at almost 1400 views, and I’m wondering how far it will run over the next week as the industry picks it up. If [...]

Right. So a pizza company creates a crazy YouTube choose your own adventure film as a lead gen tool and sales driver? I love it. Hell Pizza, a little New Zealand Pizza startup that has rapidly grown to about 100 stores (in multiple countries) have just launched a very cool campaign with YouTube’s Annotations feature allowing them to [...]

Bacardi True Originals Facebook Fail?

2. August 2010

14 Comments

Maybe it’s because I’ve had a seriously long day, but this ongoing webisode series on Facebook from Bacardi called True Originals has just completely disappointed me, in fact using these videos as a Facebook campaign is a clear and epic fail on a number of levels. But first, let’s look at these amazing short films where a mysterious character seems [...]

Diesel’s “Be Stupid” campaign platform continues to drive ridiculously innovative work. This time they’ve said that Digital is smart. Analog is stupid. And with that, Diesel has created a social event called Facepark, a live event where thousands turned up to create an analog version of Facebook, simulating pretty much everything you can do on Facebook in a physical [...]

YouTube’s Show & Tell Site For Marketers

22. July 2010

7 Comments

I’ve just been sent a link to what I believe is an almost undiscovered land within YouTube, well, by undiscovered I mean I’ve never seen it (have you guys??) and for an official YouTube run channel, it’s clearly almost non existent with only 60,000 views since going live back in December 2009. This is home to the the [...]

The Star Wars Subway Viral Video

20. July 2010

Looking back at my previous post on Flash Mobs, it’s interesting to see how something on a much smaller scale can have a much bigger impact. I guess you could call this a flash mob of sorts, but it’s not your typical dancing group (although these are the same guys that did the Frozen Grand Central [...]

Surely Flash Mobs Are Now Dead?

18. July 2010

10 Comments

Take a good look at this Flash Mob created by Malibu in NYC and then pause for a moment of silence, because that might just be the last promotional flash mob you’ll ever see! Don’t get me wrong, I think flash mobs were pretty cool in 2008 and even early 2009, the 10 or so [...]

Not only did Old Spice and Wieden Kennedy pickup a Grand Prix at Cannes for their campaign, they’ve just started rolling out one of the best social campaigns I’ve ever seen, all based on the ads that generated so much talk over the last few months. Old Spice has just started delivering personal video [...]
