I’m always intrigued when YouTube recommends videos for me. I always get a few funky and random things. And this morning’s recommendations were no different.
I amm kind of digging the overall feel, and the parallel images… but… Admittedly, I don’t speak the language, but I’m not sure when comparing your vehicle to bull dog ass is a good thing.
There are so many ad campaigns that try to do nifty/kitchy/etc./etc. kinds of executions that usually seem to fall a bit short. This McDonalds’s billboard at London’s Picadilly Citcus acually pulls of a bunch of interactive advertising stuff pretty well. And there’s actual proof… not just hypothetical connections and interactions.
Done by Shiny Red, it proves that every now and then McDonalds can still do some cool stuff. Definitely an interesting use of Flickr. Sure, some of the connections don’t really make much sense, and the YouTube page isn’t quite hitting on all cylinders, but all in all, it’s pretty cool.
I wrote about the new pepsi logo a while back, and expressed uncertainty. Well, others have taken it further than uncertainty. I’m digging this in an oddly uncomfortable way.
The image is from San Francisco artist Lawrence Yang. Check out his impressive work at suckatlife.com, and his blog is at blowatlife.blogspot.com. It’s always cool when (good) artists get inadvertently thrust into the spotlight… and their work gets more exposure. Cool stuff. Via the always interesting BlackBunneh.
