Rickshaw

Sad day today...this weekend the 2CV's of the Touareg Trail finished in Benin. Sad because I was supposed to be there, having driven 9000 kilometers through Africa.

But fuck Touareg Trail...I just found something better!

Behold this http://rickshawchallenge.com/.









India here I come again? :-)





Kudos to Marlies for the link.

Question mark?

QB TED edit from Mike Paterson on Vimeo.




I don't know what to say...is this genius or not? The big green button seems so inviting, almost hypnotizing.

New car



I need a new car.

I really want to buy an electric one like the Prius or the C-zero, but I'm still struggling with the fact that electricity is still made in factories which run on fossil fuel. And to be honest I don't like the feeling of the Prius. It's a very "plastic" car with not much of a soul.

Who can give me the closing argument?

Or should I go for this one?

Not without U2




10 million views on the live stream and more than 1 million views in 1 day on their You Tube channel.
And superb quality!

If I would be selling digital TV, I would be very afraid...

Pay Pal



Give this guy a job in advertising! He just made the new viral campaign for Pay Pal.

And he taps into a global audience. Begging 2.0?

No wonder there are 2 I's in crisis...

"Hello I’m your bank manager.
I haven’t seen you since the
nineties when I shut the branch
and told you to talk to the ATM
instead.
Let me tell you what I’ve been
doing since then.
I’ve taken your money and
invested it in some house
scheme in America I didn’t really
understand.
The result is that my bank has
lost most of its capital.
So now I need more of your
money.
I promise you it’ll be really safe.
And I guarantee I’ll invest it really
smartly.
Banks have a credibility problem
and it isn’t going away any time
soon.
After this one, the world’s savers may never trust a bank
again.
Recessions act as a broom, brushing out the old and
making space for new ideas in the world.
Nothing returns to normal afterwards.
And the biggest mistake most companies make is not
in failing to cut costs fast enough.
It is to assume that after the recession, it’s going to be
business as usual."

It are truly interesting times here in advertising country...

Craigslist: "We pay zero attention to brand. We never use the word internally. We do zero advertising. We don't have a logo. We've never done a focus group. We don't care about any of that. And now we're told we have the strongest brand ever for a company our size. That's pretty ironic."

Interview project



Interesting project by David Lynch! Why are these stories so addictive to hear? Presumably because they are genuine and authentic and told by real people.

Is this a new version of the old skool road movie, a new human interest format, a webisode,...or just an example of the convergence of media and formats? I don't know the answer but it sure works for me!

Go to jail




Yeeeeaaaaah! Proud owner of "Het Zuid" in Antwerp! Den Hopper is mine :-)

10 years after the Nokia Game, this seems to be the real Global Online Game! Launched yesterday and the servers are red hot, lagging everywhere, blogs and forums overloaded with comments...But I (professionally...) wasted my completed morning on buying streets in my beloved Antwerp. Fascinating to see how quickly the streets were being bought by the gamers in a matter of hours.

Simple idea: combine Monopoly and Google maps and play it live across the planet. The world as a board game!

So...make me an offer I can't refuse for some damn fine virtual real estate in Antwerp...

Still on Twitter?

New media formats on the horizon! Seems like Twitter is the glue for it. I've been thinking a lot about how to develop formats for the "new screens".

This looks like a good start playing around with different platforms...coming from Hollywood so they must smell money!

Check out Ben Stiller on Twitter.

Binocular football



What a great idea! LMAO!!

Imagine all the other sports you could do...binocular ping-pong, binocular rugby, binocular snooker...

But when do you stop when doing a 100m binocular sprint??? I'm already thinking of the binocular Olympic Games!

Touareg Trail



The decision is made! Just enrolled for the Touareg Trail. One month of adventures in Africa, 9000 km in a 2CV through Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin.

It's also about helping people who really need it. The rally sponsors real and mainly small, local projects in Africa. Every team can choose their own project. At this moment I've got a school project in Benin on my list, but I'm still looking for more projects to sponsor in the countries I mentioned above.

I'm also looking for brands to sponsor the expedition. It'll be a very campaignable project for brands with a heart.

Drop me a note if you have any suggestions.

Proximus customers are ugly!



...according to their own advertising agency!

This is the clip with plenty of young girls, but they aren't hot enough for the advertising company...

Why bother going user generated then? Real people look like this...





(Agency takes a piss at his client, by actually stating that Proximus customers are ugly...)

Slap the goon

Established in the Summer of 05/06 Byron Bay.. Australia

'Goon' - An Australian term referring to affordable wine, cask wine or boxed wine. Usually housed in a Silver 'bladder'. (Sauce of the Silver Sun)

STG started from our experiences watching those around us having carefree, loose, but fun times. Whether it's a hard week at uni or work, a weekend surfing or on the backpacker trail, one common denominator is cask wine, also known as 'Goon'. Crew get around the table, share stories and have a good laugh.

Slap the Goon is about connecting people and bringing them together in ways that create good times and great memories.

That's what it's all about, no more, no less.

We decided to play tribute to the 'goon' and its merry ways with our Classic Tee. We now bring you many more designs and our own range of Cask Wine.

So 'Join the Revolution', tell your friends and 'Let the Goon Times Roll'.


More info on this site.
