Fake MINI Viral FTW

It’s been a while since I wrote anything about MINI, after all, it has been almost a year since I last worked on the brand, but this YouTube spot wins on so many levels.

The direction is great, the effects are pretty but what I love the most about this spot is that it makes fun of viral ads, while remaining incredibly on-brand. I mean, Still Free was great and Bike Hero was awesome, but this just about blows everything else out of the water.

I wish we could have done something like this when we launched The Other MINI in Malaysia, last year.

These squirrels look so badass that I just had to share this with you.

See more Kungfu Squirrels photos at Mail Online.

Man, they are so crunk.

WALL-E = Steady

(Image from Backseat Sushi)

Finally watched WALL-E with Nora yesterday. I thought it was going to be just another cutesy Disney animated feature, but as it turned out, there’s more to that clumsy little bucket of bolts than I ever imagined.

I particularly liked the attention-to-fucking-awesome-detail, the space dance scene; I thought that was quite cute, and of course, that short art history lesson that accompanied the end credits. Great stuff. Thank you, Pixar.

I had a wonderful time.

Why does MindManager Pro rock?

Seriously, it rocks.

Lately, I’ve been using it to sketch out site maps the size of Wisconsin. OK, well, maybe not the size of Wisconsin, which is 65,498 square miles, by the way. But hey, you get the idea.

You don’t even have to be an IA to love this stuff; if you spend hours every day drawing flowcharts or mapping out processes or even if you’re just looking for a brainstorming tool, this is it. I’ve ranted about stuff like Freemind and WriteMaps before, but this stuff is just so much more incredibly on point. Just try it out.

A knuckle too many

I was browsing A List Apart’s store and it occurred to me that their XHTML Fist tee has five knuckles.

No offense to Marilyn Monroe or folks with extra digits, but what is the meaning of this?

There must be some cool explanation behind it that I’m not getting.

Any ideas?

By the way, all of the tees are sold out, except for Redesign/Realign.

Since I was planning on geeking out my wardrobe anyway, I went over to Agency Fusion’s Make My Logo Bigger Cream shop. They still stock those cool trucker caps, mugs and ohwhythehellnot, boxer shorts.

Maybe I’ll get a trucker cap.

The Force Unleashed

(Image from Wired)

No, that’s not a picture of my bedroom.

It’s an image from Wired Magazine‘s preview of the upcoming Lucas Arts videogame, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Fuck. I need a PS3/Xbox360/Wii now.
