Apocalypto Movie Trailer


Here's an interesting way to make a seemily normal movie trailer a little more interesting.

Watch the Apocalypto teaser trailer. Then 3/4 of the way through when you see the monkey pause the trailer and skip back a few frames.

Da Bitch from Ad-Rag/Commercial Archive has posted her experience with a banner that took over her browser and made her install a program. Pretty scary.

This continues 2007 as being the year of mergers and aquisitions. Australia has recently seen alot of activity in the online space, Blue Freeway and C4 being off the top of my head and it will continue as companies capitalise on the strength of the online sector.
