Around the world in 80 seconds

To be honest, when I heard about these videos I didn’t think it would interest me. An apparently inspirational figure repeating a  tired formula whilst highlighting many of the worlds wonders I may never see. Great.

ALAS! Yet again, much like the first time I watched Where The Hell is Matt, I was enraptured, inspired and left with an irremovable smile upon face.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..

And being that I’m an amateur ornithologist, as well as massive fan of all things of the automated and awesome variety…

This bird really knows how to flick my switch.

La Senzational choir

La Senza advertise their Christmas range through an interactive octave of moaning girls from sizes (I mean notes) A – G.

For me, this idea really strikes a chord..

Not only do we get to see the ladies parading the sexy La Senza underwear, we also get to interact with the sensational sirens to create and record our own masterpieces.

I tried to play ‘Come all ye faithful’, but it does get hard.


Visit the ladies here.

Have fun and Merry Christmas!!!
