EepyBird’s Sticky Note Experiment (Viral Marketing attempt?)

12 09 2008


EepyBird’s Sticky Note experiment from Eepybird on Vimeo.

This is a pretty sweet video. At first I thought it was some type of art project on Vimeo, but at the end ads for Coke and Office Max show up. I wonder if they sponsored the production like Stride Gum sponsored Where The Hell is Matt?

What a hurricane season! Good luck to all who live along the gulf, especially those in Galveston.





Cool Apple ad (Mac and PC guys) in NYtimes.com

10 09 2008

Apple has an ad in NYtimes.com today that utilizes the banner as well as the top right section of the site. It’s the usual Mac and PC guys. PC is inserting his op-ed into the Times site, it’s pretty funny and a creative ad, albeit really really expensive. But probably a lot cheaper than a 30 spot during prime time.

The ad itself is not at all obnoxious (the visitor has the option to turn on the sound), but the video streams regardless. I like how Apple has taken their huge ad campaign and geared it specifically for the Times (or other newspaper web sites).

6 09 2008

I grabbed this from the blog Mudflats. This is the document the Dems in Alaska produced after vetting her before she took the Gov’s office. Although not groundbreaking, it is pretty interesting.

Check it out.

Palin vetted.





Putin Tranquilizes Tiger — Good PR or Russia’s Heman?

6 09 2008

According to NPR, Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was out with with some wildlife specialists and a camera crew (to document, umm, them walking in the forest?) to check out a tiger that was trapped by the specialists. The tiger escaped and Putin, being the man he is, grabbed a tranquilizer gun and shot and sedated the tiger before it attacked the crew.

Haha, I find it really hard to believe that this wasn’t planned .. very hard to believe.
