Van-Damn!!!

 

Van Damme - Splits

A few days ago Volvo Trucks released an ad, teasing the release of their latest ad.
Oh yes, we do that now.

As you may have guessed from the  clever title, this campaign features ‘vans’, or in this case Volvo Trucks, and Van Dammes, just one, Jean-Claude (of course).

The Teaser

Tantalising isn’t it?
Well wait no longer. It is the 14th, we do have the stunt and it is awesome.

Thanks for pointing this one out @JanPruijser

What’s it like to be a sex symbol?

Unfortunately I do not follow sex symbol Taye Diggs across all his social platforms. It seems he is quite lively on Twitter, Instagram and even Vine. However, I don’t follow any other actors on these channels, so why should I follow someone best known as a bandleader in Chicago?

Because this… This is why!

 

Hilarious!

We’re not sure if it is real, it doesn’t quite look like he makes contact. But more so, I don’t care.
Good work Taye, I diggs.

Now let’s watch it again.
In fact let’s view it the way it was meant to be viewed… repeatedly on Vine.

 

Guillermo del Terror

To celebrate the release of their latest Halloween offering, ‘Treehouse of Horrors XXIV’, Matt Groening is putting Simpsons’ iconic couch gag in the fantastically horrible hands of Guillermo del Toro (apparently they have a good eye for this).

Treehouse-of-Horror-XXIV

Del Toro did more than just a quick TV gag, he went to ghost town and created a 2 minute 45 second intro, transforming our beloved Simpsons’ characters into the most feared creatures from horror-history. The intro is packed with so many references it will keep your wide eyes glued to the screen for the entire time and even then you’d be hard pressed to spot them all. There is an obvious slant towards Del Toro’s on films but that just makes it more enjoyable, I  let out inward squeel when I saw Homer morph into a reaper from Blade 2 or on seeing  Groundskeeper Willie as  Red (Hellboy not Morgan Freeman).

The episode will air this Sunday (06/10/13). Happy Halloween everyone!

Thanks to @Steve_Jude for sending me this.

Submarooned

I’m not here to tell you about anything, rather ask you… Why the f#€@ is there a submarine emerging from the center of Milan?

I remember when Land Rover did this, and it was good. I instantly knew the strong off-and even-under roading message they were trying to purvey. But apart from the regularly unsubtle hash tag (#L1F3) and the nerve racking presence of a Smart Car (please not the Smart car, please not the Smart car), my question is this… What is the message?

After deep dive into the possibilities, I have emerged with one life line… Genertel.

I’m assuming that they are an insurance company whose tagline paraphrases the great Forest Gump… ‘it Happens’.
‘It’ in this case being; L1F3 (life).

Seen as their website credits them as ‘Genertel Life’,  I seem to have had my Eureka moment. However it was not obvious and not easy.

So in this world of disposable content and fleeting engagement, is this intriguing (and expensive) piece of stunt media enough to be considered worthwhile?

It will be interesting to find out.

 

I will leave you with the disappointing CCTV footage that ‘actually’ catches the moment the sub rose from the ground. It may also be worth noting this video was posted on Genertel’s YouTube Channel.  *shakes head

Other activity can be seen on Twitter, Instagram, more on YouTube (including an  interview with the italian submariners that emerged from the wreck) as well as a bespoke site: ProtectYourLife.it

 

AppSeed

This incredible concept app… concappt, is the amazing brainchild of Greg Goralski. It uses computer vision to turn initial scamps into interactive wireframes with functional buttons, maps and other features.

This could be a quick and amazing tool to bring ideas to life before they even get to see dev or design.

AppSeed

I think this is an amazing idea that could really help the realisation of ideas as well as the initial sell. However, they still need your help. The project is still looking for backers through KickStarter. So what are you waiting for!
