Land Rover’s Latest Adverts

Just seen Land Rover’s latest ad’s on Fubiz.  I’ve recently developed a love for tilt shift photography. It adds a really cool dimension to the image and reminds me a bit of Postman Pat for some reason – so a bit of nostalgia thrown in there too, maybe?

I just love the way tilst-shift makes everything child-like. You need to look really hard in order to convince yourself that what you’re seeing is real. It’s ace in my opinion and I think the new Land Rover adverts are spot on.

Coldplay – Strawberry Swing Video

To be fair to Coldplay they do tend to have some quite interesting and creative ideas when it comes to their music videos. The Scientist and Life in Technicolour are two that I’ve particularly liked recently.

However, I think the Strawberry Swing video is now my favourite. I love the style and flow of the video.  The best music video I’ve seen in a while.

Pixar’s Latest Short Film – Partly Cloudy

Don’t know about you but I love both Pixar’s short films and their full features.  Really beautiful to look at – visual porn. The latest edition, Partly Cloudy is really sweet.  Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy..

Beatles Rock Band Animation

This is simply awesome. I love the style, the music, the pace and the overall feel of it. Quite simply the best bit of animation that I’ve seen in a long while.

Check it out.

Gordon Brown vs. Cassetteboy

Great mashup of a Gordon Brown speech – courtesy of Cassetteboy.  Quite apt – seeing as the ‘stop the BNP’ elections are taking place today. Will I vote? Probably not – have more important things on mind at the moment, like whether to renew my season ticket or not. Enjoy.

Also, check out Cassetteboy’s Apprentice mashup – also v.funny.

Ryan Giggs and Thierry Henry Viral

Reebok viral featuring Ryan Giggs and Thierry Henry in conjunction with tonight’s Champions League Final.  Incredibly cheesy – but I still like it.

Rihanna’s Naked Pics

Rihanna

It seems as though almost every celeb on the planet is being caught out in a ‘naked pics shocker’ scandal.  Now it’s Rihanna’s turn. Can’t tell whether they’re real as the only ones that include a ‘headshot’ show Rihanna fully clothed. What do you think?

The bigger question, for me, is how dumb can these celebrities be? Time after time they keep being caught out. I suppose that leads me to the question: is it coincidence or is it carefully planned? The cynical, marketing side of me suggests that this is a massive PR stunt. If it is, fair play to Rihanna as she has a body that will triple record sales off the back of this.

If it was Vanessa Feltz, on the otherhand, I wouldn’t bank on the same level of publicity – or maybe I’m wrong?
