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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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!

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 [...]
