A Little Piece of Happy

Posted August 31, 2009

A Little Piece of Happy

As part of their “a Little Piece of Happy” campaign, Trident, via The Hive, Toronto, took over Toronto’s Dundas Square on Thursday by placing 3200 pinwheels in real grass. The set up took a little over three hours and people were encouraged to walk away with a pinwheel & some gum (a little piece of happy). Similar executions also took place in Calgary and Vancouver. Thanks to Michelle for the scoop.

StripTea

StripTea

I love tea. I drink two to three cups of tea every morning and usually one or two in the afternoon. I think this StripTea, from Donkey Products, is hilarious. There’s also RoyalTea and DemocraTea. What about CelebraTea? or DeadCelebraTea? That would be great. Scooped from Firat at Elma+Alt+Shift.

Be in the know in NYC

Be in the know in NYC

It’s been a while since I posted any funny TV commercials on glossy – I just don’t think anything has made me laugh in a while (crime). So I’m going to ease back into comedy with these three dry humor spots for NBCNewYork.com via Mother, New York and directed by Biscuit’s Aaron Ruell. Ted is my fav – makes me want to eat shrimp cocktail. Also check out Liz and Ron. Full credits are here.

Sand Animation

Sand Animation

Have you seen Kseniya Simonova creating sand “animation” on Ukraine’s Got Talent? Truly amazing. I wonder how long before this technique is used in a TV commercial – or has it been? Anyone know? Thanks to my Ukrainian Dad for the tip. xo

8-Bit Trip

Those of you who read glossy regularly know that I am a fan of Lego. So I love this spot which is made up of 1500 hours of moving Lego bricks and is stop-motion tribute to 8-bit video games. Animated by Tomas Redigh to a track by Daniel Larsson also known as the Swedish creative duo Rymdreglage. Found via Cpluv.

Go see District 9/I love Christopher Jones

I saw District 9 on Monday night & I LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Loved it. Do you get that I loved it? I can’t wait for District 10 to come out (not sure if this is in the works but my fingers & toes are crossed that it is). Congrats to director/writer Neill Blomkamp on a job well done. Kudos also go out to my friends at Embassy in Vancouver who did some of the VFX.
