Burger King does it again

Whopper Lust. A dedicated TV channel showing nothing but a whopper. Watch it for 5 minutes and get a whopper. Simple and amazing.

This will be winning awards until next year.

The agency that takes over this account from CP&B has a tough act to follow.

How to apply for a job...and shit

Le Club

This is a interesting twist on an interactive youtube video. The more people that view the 'Le Club' video the hotter the party gets. At the moment there are 3/4 videos left to reveal and if you go back through the older videos, you can see the detail that's being added.

I'm sure a lot of creatives have tried to sell in the same idea. But it's the execution of the videos that makes this good.

Viewers will be enticed with the fact that the women (and men) are getting hotter and they are all wearing less and less and less and less.

Quite brave for a water brand. But hey, it's Perrier and they're French. So, they don't care.

A nice use of facebook data scraping. The Like video room is particularly good.

Add a chunk (video, image, phrase) to the Toblerone and win stuff.

Nice update of Mortal Kombat

This is a nice new film update of the computer game Mortal Kombat. The Hollywood version was kinda shit, but these short episodes re-introduce all the characters in a much cooler way. Computer game shorts seem to have had a resurgence online of late by finding enough budget to put together something that Hollywood never could.

Check out the Street Fighter Legacy short below. Another nice film short with Ryu vs Ken. Weirdly, i actually used to go to Art College with the guy who plays Ken. He now has a much cooler career path that involves dragon ball punches.

The prologue that sets up all the characters for Mortal Kombat Legacy.

MK Legacy - Episode 1

Just click through the annotations on this video to find the other eight shorts. Scorpion vs Sub Zero is particularly good.

Street Fighter Legacy

Cats in Tanks

Yes, it's amazing.
