The problem with using the keyboard in banners if you need to first click within it to get focus. That aside I like the execution on this.

lovely.

Maybe it's just my machine, but the reveal took forever while holding down the spacebar.

Very nice, dig the art. I would suggest that the window shrinks when the finger lets go of the spacebar, and expands again when depressed, so it feels more 'reactive.' Also, interaction could be via mouse button to avoid the problem ashley mentioned. Spacebar and mouse button does the same thing, it's not like you're required to bang away on the spacebar.

Nice code but this is a terrible ad experience. I'd be shocked if more than 0.0001% spend that long holding down the space bar and you don't see the logo for about an hour. An Actionscripters conceit

This is really nice art direction. maybe the man would have been nicer in the same paper material instead of graphics. but overall i was engaged..

The interaction is a bit confusing and I don't think it adds anything to the overall concept. The artwork is ace though.
