The Pomegranate Phone

A friend told me about this new phone she'd heard about, called the pomegranate phone. So I googled it, and found this.


When you watch the (well put together) presentation you find out that the futuristic pomegranate phone does everything. Voice translation. Movie projection. Even coffee-making.

Intrigued, I did some further clicking. It turns out the whole concept is a red herring to entice you into the tourism microsite of Nova Scotia, Canada.

Nicely viral. Slick presentation. And totally and utterly irrelevant to the product. Laaame.

Tumblr V5 video

Introducing: Tumblr v5 from David Karp on Vimeo.

This is how you launch a new version. Not some shitty press release but a video explaining everything quickly and easily. Hey even throw in words like "sick" and "sexy" too. Can't hurt.

Next time you launch a new site for a client why not produce a video that sells it to your audience. This is especially important for sites that, on the surface, might not seem that exciting to the consumer. Sites such as community sites or the more functional sites such as banking and travel. Why assume your visitors are going to explore all the great features you spent months planning and building.

Importance of Awards in advertising

I read here that this is for AWARD in Australia? Took way to long to get to the naked old dudes for my liking.

The director Jim Hosking seems to want to challenge Tom Tuntz for weirdest reel Tom still wins though.
