Whopper Sacrifice is gone

Seems Whooper Sacrifice was too popular for Facebook to handle. Or they gave out too many free whoppers? Or was it hacked?

Update: Facebook asked for significant changes and CP+B decided to close it down. Source

Either way we'll see you at the awards show CP+B you smart asses :)

boxxybabee - the new Lonelygirl15?


Meet the first YouTube idol for 2009 - boxxybabee

Dare I admit it, but I'm currently obsessed with this young lady called boxxybabee and her webcam antics on YouTube. Boxxy was a meme's and 40+ video responses as well as mashup/remixes

As of January 14th boxxybabee holds the following status on YouTube :

  • #1 - Most Subscribed (This Week)
  • #2 - Most Subscribed (This Month)
  • #19 - Most Viewed (This Week)

    But is she just too good to be real? Is this merely a recruitment phase to something bigger - are we witnessing another lonelygirl15?

    Or is Boxxy just simply another teen with a webcam looking for attention? It's not the first time a forum user has emerged as a cult celebrity. Previously a girl by the name of 'cracky-chan' achieved a cult following on image board when she posted a number of photo's of herself through 2005-2006.

    Queensland Tourism Offers The Best Job in the World

    Project Seek bannerSMALL.jpg

    It's not often you see a tourism campaign that creates such an amount of buzz. All for the right reasons.

    Tourism Queensland's latest promotion "The Best Job In the World" is offering a 6 month blogging/caretaker job for A$150k salary has been picked up the world over. Here on the BBC

    Owning the term "best job in the world" on Google is quite a feat in itself. What I love about the campaign is it creates awareness of Queensland and it's fantastic weather, it a promotion with an amazing prize that you want to share and once it's all over you end up with 6 months worth of blog entries from an eager winner.

    Here's the official press release

    "They will also have access to and report on visits to all the Great Barrier Reef islands that run from Cairns to Bundaberg.

    "How would it be if you were suffering the current harsh Winter in New York, Paris and London to be able to escape and work somewhere as amazing as the Great Barrier Reef."

    Applications are open until February 22. Eleven shortlisted candidates will be flown to Hamilton Island in early May for the final selection process and the six month contract will commence on July 1.

    The campaign will run in the Australian domestic market and 10 key international markets, making it Tourism Queensland's first truly global campaign."

    The only thing I didn't like was the fake job applicant videos. It wasn't needed. Spotted on Mumbrella

    Great effort on the PR front and well done to the client for going with this. I look forward to seeing how this pans out.

    The site is slow to respond which makes me feel like it's getting hammered right now. Which is both good and bad. Let's hope they get this fixed soon.

    Update: They are moving the site to a new server but even the news has picked up that the site has crashed.

    I was told over 1,000,000 visitors to the site in a day.

    Update: The campaign is by CumminsNitro Brisbane.
    Who I think wished their site would crash ;)

    The Museum of Preloaders

    This is one of those areas where the web really proves it's worth. (Making up for Star Trek fan fiction, Jonas Brothers pic-laden MySpaces and geocities homepages).

    The resourceful guys over at Big Spaceship have been good enough to start a collection of preloaders from around the web.




    Ahh, the memories.
