The Coke+Mentos guys follow up


EepyBird's Sticky Note experiment from Eepybird on Vimeo.

The Coke and Mentos guys (EepyBird) have followed up their experiments with Sticky Note experiments. The budget for the videos is bigger (cinematography and direction is spot on)

I kept waiting for a brand of office supplies to appear at the end. Then I remembered that some people do stuff just for the fun of it or under the umbrella of "art" rather than "advertising".

Update: Their other videos (like the one below) are sponsored by OfficeMax and ABC Family. So that would explain the budget busting effort spent on the longer video above. Phew everyone has a price. I thought maybe I had become to commercialized.

This video stars the girl from Samurai Girl (oh dear) and this was taken from the Eepybird site

How do Samurai Girl and Sticky Notes go together? We premiered our grand finale video, "the Extreme Sticky Note Experiments", on ABC Family on September 5th during Samurai Girl.

Sorry the answer is "f*ck all". But we wouldn't have this video if it wasn't for ABC's money. Oh the video stars the lead actor from Samuari Girl who will also be in Fox's Dragonball. A Google image search explains the appeal.

Also interesting is that Samuari Girl is one of those event TV thigns that if it goes well gets turned into a series. Why waste all your money on a pilot no one will see?

It definetly makes you want to go out there and grab a pack of the sticky notes. Just like the Mentos videos made you want to try it out.
