Fotoshop by Adobé

Below is a great video making the rounds on the net these days. Very funny and well done also. More truth than some would like to admit to, but it is reality. I like to say that yesterday’s wet darkroom is today—Photoshop. Enjoy Fotoshop by Adobé and thanks to Jesse Rosten for producing this little ad!


the PEN story

Found this great viral video about the new micro four thirds Olympus PEN E-P1 DSLR on YouTube today. It was done all in stop motion style animation using the old and new PEN. Very creative and fun. What I love most is how it uses the photos as a time machine taking you back to when the original PEN camera was out (back in the black and white film days). Enjoy!

sxsw 2009: stand by me

I just ran across this video that was shown at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas this past March. It is a great version of Stand By Me, spliced together using street artists and groups from around the world. The piece was produced by It is inspirational and a great listen. Enjoy!

a charlie brown ad agency

This morning a co-worker of mine sent me this classic Charlie Brown remake depicting ad agency life. Being an ex-agency art director, I can most certainly attest that much, if not all of this is true! Please enjoy this special presentation of A Charlie Brown Ad Agency!

personalized santa video

Santa may me hard at work preparing for tomorrow’s flight around the world, but he still has time for sending a personalized video to your child! Santa now has technology called the Portable North Pole that makes a personalized video possible even when he is extremely busy. Mom and Dad just need to fill out a form and answer a few questions and then Santa will make a video for your child. Please note that this technology is first being rolled out in Canada, but will work for any child around the world. Santa (with the help of Mom and Dad) can have your child’s picture placed into the nice file next his or her name.

Try out the Portable North Pole and let me know what you think!


2008 santa tracker


Track the jolly old elf, Santa, this year as the North American Air Defense network (NORAD) will track him around the world as he delivers his bag of gifts to children all around the world. Some additions this year are the Kids Coundown section in which you can play fun flash games with the kids. In addition, NORAD has included a section where you can download a kml file that allows you to track Santa in 3D using Google Earth. Also as usual, NORAD will be posting videos of Santa as he makes his stops around the world. Be sure to visit the site on December 24th regularly to get updates!

Please note that I will be looking for posts with 2008 Santa sightings and hope to bring them to you later this week. Until then look around and make sure to keep your eye out for any of Santa’s reindeer!

stay out of the doghouse this season

A little advise to all of us men out there season. This retailer, which I had never thought of making a viral marketing type video came through in a rather effective way. Thanks to Jamison for sending me this link. As always, enjoy the short show, and remember to stay out of the doghouse this year!

What if fonts were like people? has a great video that does just that. Humanize fonts. Rage Italic is great. I gues because working with Wal-Mart. that was one of their main fonts. Well, I could go on, but i won’t. Enjoy!Vodpod videos no longer available.

elements of video

High school chemistry was fun for me as well as a challenge. I loved how the periodic table of elements was organized by groups of metals to non-metals and those in between. The problem was the hands-on experience was mainly reading a book about protons, neutrons and atomic numbers.

Today, technology brings us the ability to play with and learn more about our world with just the click of our mouse. With the technology of today, some enterprising professors at the University of Nottingham in the UK decided to bring to us The Periodic Table of Videos. By just clicking on an element on the Periodic Table of Elements, up starts a brief video with professors explaining and dare I say “playing” with the element you clicked on. What is even better, is one of the professors has a very remarkable resemblance to Albert Einstein. If I had a say, that is how all scientists should look. Please enjoy the show, and do not attempt many of the experiments they do at home!
