If you remember this time last year, I posted the Olympus PEN Story, that stopmotion video had 2.5 million views and was somewhat revolutionary in the way the stopmotion was presented.

Fortnight Lingerie launched a viral video last week, it’s called Super Sexy CPR and aims to get men (and women), who’ve been putting off learning CPR, a powerful reason to learn the best way to do it! From all accounts so far it’s seriously accurate! What I wasn’t a fan of, was the missed opportunity around the [...]

I laughed when I first watched this new viral campaign from Hi-Tec. Maybe it was just the South African accent or perhaps it’s the entire documentary style viral video promoting a water proof line of clothing, shoes and accessories that are supposedly so water repellent that you can literally run on water with them, after some training ofcourse!

It’s great to see TomTom getting a little creative with a new viral video campaign to launch Star Wars Voices on their GPS devices. The viral video shows supposedly official behind the scenes footage of Darth Vader attempting to record his lines for the GPS instructions, and ofcourse, it doesn’t go exactly to plan with the Lord Vader [...]

There isn’t a lot to say about this video, but it made me laugh out loud more than once. Not sure if that was because I’d had a glass of red or because it is very very true! In finding this video, I’ve also found a dam good tool in XtraNormal, an online tool that [...]
