This is one of the best Swede’s ive ever seen.
More of this please!

PM Brown on Twitter!?

This surely this has to be the point when Twitter finally goes main stream? No doubt we will see Dave, Boris, Ken etc. signing up to the service very soon.

On a separate note, ive started following the Big Man Brown but he hasn’t followed me back which is annoying!! There is nothing more annoying when you follow a brand/company/(important)person and they don’t follow you back, im not sure what it is but it grates, it feels as though there needs to be an unwritten rule or a code of conduct for companies/politicians etc who use Twitter.

Brown should take a leaf out of Obama’s book, my mate Kylie followed Obama and within 3 minutes Obama was following her back.

the guitar zeros

These dudes rock!...well not really but you have to love the ingenuity of doing something like this! I think its great and I hope to see loads more hacks like this.

I know this isn’t the first time anyone’s hacked a games console controller and it certainly wont be the last, but the difference here is the that they haven’t just turned what is essentially a remote control into…another remote control…

pot noodle viral

Just been sent this spoof viral of Guinness’s Tipping Point ad.

Im not impressed at all. Was it me or did anyone else want to close it down way before it even reached the end?

I love spoof ads when done well, off the top of my head there are loads of good spoof ads like Tango’s spoof of Bravia and the spoof viral for VW’s small but tough Polo (not sure if this counts as it wasn’t created by VW?) and especially liked this random spoof of Bravia (well actually not sure how good it really is but just made me chuckle, think maybe it's the Gareth from The Office type character)

I think my issues with this is that has taken far too long for the viral to be released (correct me if im wrong, I have literally just seen this in Campaign today?) to make a decent impact as the original Guinness ad felt new and exciting months and months ago? They obviously wanted to make the domino effect of the mechanics look clumsy to reflect the “slag of all snacks” nature of the brand but this makes it just dull to watch, with no believability that this could actually happen in real life and there feels like no point in watching as you kinda get the gist of the ad in the first 10 seconds and know in the back of your mind its not going to get any more interesting or intriguing to watch.

Surely if you’re going to do a spoof ad, you should then make it worth while and most importantly make it more interesting/funnier than the original!!??

I (heart) Tweet Scan

Tweet Scan is awesome.
I know Twitter offer their own tracking system but we’ve tried it via IM and well….its crap and doesn’t seem to work very well.

Tweet Scan is a really nice, free and easy way to instantly track public Tweets on anything and everything and it actually works too. Woo hoo!

no reception...

some things in life are better because, they just are. i.e. toast tastes better cut into triangles NOT squares etc.

realised that offices are just instantly better without a "reception" area; just more welcoming, friendly and instantly inclusive. poor sod that sits closest to the door (Alina in our case!).

best music video of the far

Quite possibly one of the best music videos ive seen for a while!!!
Check out the video for Justice’s track DVNO; am absolutely loving the old school 80’s logos, reminds me of being a kid, watching cartoons like He-Man, Mask etc. with all the cheesy production company logos at the end of the toon. What a great idea and looks stunning.

Not sure what else to say other than awesome. Oh yeah…buy the album as it truly ROCKS too!!

Brilliant – stumbled upon this site documenting people matching random bank notes from around the world to famous celebrity faces.

My personal favorite...Dr Evil!
