Woah! Nike Freeze Frame

It doesn't count if...

This is a nice idea based on a solid truth. All the ways we justify having something indulgent. 

I like the fact that it continues on facey-book and twitter as it's a really nice lead in line for tweets and status updates.

Clever, simple and funny.

Ok then.

Storm Thorgerson

Here's a cool surrealist artist who i can't believe i haven't picked up on before. He's done loads of album covers for bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Muse and Biffy Clyro. 

He's art is much more crazy and probably even better. Take a look at his website...

Best Idea of the Year?

Anyone else not seen the Coke Polar Bowl? Well here it is.

I'm not sure how I missed this. But it's one of the best ideas of the year in my opinion. I was shown this  by Framestore and was literally bowled over by it.

It's simple, during the Superbowl you could go to and watch two Coca Cola Polar Bears reacting in real-time to the game. 

Great idea, but what really impresses me is the insight it's based on. 

It's a common truth (and a great insight to build a new idea/platform on) that we all sit watching TV with our laptop, tablet or smart phone by our side.

We all do it. Update our status, follow what people are saying about TV shows etc etc.

This idea owns that second screen for the entire Superbowl and does something interesting and funny.

That's four hours of engagement for a fraction of what it costs to run an ad at half time.

But being Coke, they still did a half time TV spot. But they integrated it with this idea. Watch below.

So what would make me engage for four hours? It's a good question and one that this idea has really nailed.

The Polar Bears reacted to everything. The National Anthem, first downs, fouls, touch downs, bad calls. They even started doing the Vogue dance during Madonna's half time show. This went down a treat on twitter.

However, there's only so long that people would stay interested with these gimmicks of the bears reacting to touchdowns. It's fun but it's good that this idea had more.

Social platforms were used as well. People could Tweet to the Polar Bears and you saw them respond to people and show they profile photos. 

The Polar Bears reacted in so many different ways it kept the interest up. You didn't know what they were going to do next.

I'd give my left nut to create and produce work as good as this. Titanium Lion for the Bears i think. 

The agency that did this was Wieden and Kennedy, Portland.

Just a Quick Retail Idea

It really is a quick retail idea. 

From Puma. The faster you shop, the more discount you get. 

It's smart, sharp and speedy.

Pinball Park Challenge

I like the fact this idea has come from a insight about how badly people in Paris drive.

This is pretty cool. DJ with a BMX. 

The only problem i see is the need to be a really good DJ and have the ability to ride a BMX. 

It's a niche audience. But hey, who cares. It rocks.

Aerial Cinematography on a Budget

Use the Copter Kids. They use a remote controlled helicopter with a Canon 5D/7D attached.  

Aerial shots can be yours!

Check Out We Are Us

I stumbled across We Are Us today. They do design, brand image, websites and direction. Pretty cool. Fingers in all the pies.

Here are a couple of there music video promos.

Mini Lego Billboards

Theses lego billboards are dotted around London to tell people that Legoland in Windsor now have a hotel. 

Quite cute. Probably more of a PR stunt than anything. But hey, I blogged about it. 

Done by DLKW London.

Friday Afternoon Art Direction

New video from Graham Coxon directed by Nina Doff

She got 85 fans from 22 countries to film themselves and she edited their footage together.

Having just been Snowboarding. This floats my boat. 

Nokia set up their cameras to capture 'bullet time' shots of Snowboarders doing tricks.

Andy Green is a good action photographer.

Alex Howe knows how to shoot animals in funny ways. He shoots cars too, but they're just not funny.

Best invention ever?

Spill proof beer on a dance floor. Hahn attempts to make it a reality. Funny stuff

This was also good. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet. The Dollar Shave Club.

America just knows how to write funny advertising that gets all the product info in.

Friday Afternoon Art Direction

Dennis Maitland goes to great lengths to capture these vertigo inducing photo's. Could see this kind of shots being used in a clothes/shoes poster campaign.

Via Adverve

A scary visual of how many McDonald's are in the United States.

A nice interactive site for Wrangler. You drag the models from scene to scene. Nicely done. It's obviously had some money thrown at it.

Take a punt

It's hard to do as we get older. A lot of things hold us back from trying or saying something new.

Apparently we develop a fear of failure as we get older.

This talk by Sir Ken Robinson asks if we could stop us thinking like this if we changed the way we are educated.

It's inspiration and a nice idea.

This excites me as i'm going in four week! Maybe not covered in LED lights.

Latest viral hit

It's a lo-fi music video that has racked up over 71 million views. 

The single 'Somebody That I Used To Know' by Gotye (Go-tea-Yay) has gone from strength to strength. 

The video is good but the popularity of the track seems to be what is making this one of the fastest viewed videos this year.

Ho ho ho.

This is an interactive music video for  Red Hot Chili Peppers new single 'look around'.

You can literally look around the four rooms that the band members are each playing in. 

The embed mode is a nice touch.

Step into the void

This is an interesting art installation by Doug Wheeler called SA MI 75 DZ NY 12. 

You step into the white space and lose all depth perception. 

It's a cool idea and gives you a genuine feeling for the art piece.

An awesome car chase panoramic shot.

A nice campaign from Nike using some great looking black and white photography. Shot by Adam Hinton

And finally... another from Nike.

Their new Fuel Band gets an advert that's cut together from popular culture shots and athletes. Typography is nicely worked in.

More about the fuel band in the video below.

The Kobe System

This is a great idea. Where do you go when you've reached the top of the game? 

The Kobe System will help you. 

A Star studded advert helps. But the idea of basing this on Success speakers is a great insight.

Great little real-time social idea for Mini

A Mini is suspended by a rope with a flame below it during the Brussels motor show. 

Everytime someone likes the Mini Facebook page the flame burns the rope. You burn the rope, you win the mini.

Real life Fifa

This is quite exciting. Real life Fifa/Pro Evo. Well, depending on where your allegiances lie. 

They attached headphones to players which sounded out the controllers button presses. 

Very interesting and something a bit different. It looks like it was done on a minimal budget, or it was made to look like it was.
