Lazy blogging on a Tuesday.

Work during the summer session is a little hectic on Mondays through Thursdays, and my blogging output has been curtailed somewhat for the past six weeks. This is the last of the six weeks, so my free time opens up a LOT in a few days. I put forward this example of lazy blogging in the meantime.

Times Square Billboard by Space150 from Cliff Kuang on Vimeo.

A Vimeo user named Cliff Kuang posted this video of an ad for the Forever21 clothing line that runs on a billboard in Times Square. A smiling giantess towers over the crowd at her feet, takes a Polaroid from her bird's eye view and shows it to the camera, or she picks up someone from the crowd. There are several versions and they repeat on a loop. The special effects aren't the absolute state of the art, but you'll see that a lot of people stop to watch and record it on their cell phone cameras. It's a clever ad.

A nice little gift for My People, advancing Our Agenda.

That's an awesome idea for an ad. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
