A film from a friend

A friend of ours shot this delightful short film/documentary, admittedly for Christmas...I've been slow-moving on here recently sorry! His name is Ewan McNicol and he was previously at Blink. He's now set up his own company in the States called Lucid Inc.

Snes Fest

So I'm a self-confessed Nintendo nut. Sad but true. And I can't resist anything SNES. I've got a PS3 and a Wii but I keep going back to the golden SNES era...a time when they didn't rely on fancy graphics etc to make decent games.

Just before I got a job in advertising, coming up to 5 years ago now, I sold my SNES collection...console and about 60 games, many rare. Gotta pay the bills right? Gutting...and of course I got a job about 2 weeks later.

So now finally I've started buying it all again, scouring ebay like a maniac trying to grow my collection once more. I've got quite a few on the Wii's Virtual Console, but its not the same as actally having the original cartridge.

Now I can't stop. I have to have all the games I had before, and more. All the rare ones, which can be quite pricey.

This is the Daddy - Chrono Trigger. It can sell for up to £1000.

One I have managed to get my hands on again is The Secret of Mana. I'm going to start playing that soon.

Anyway, must go and buy more...I mean write some scripts....

Oh and if anyone has any old snes games kicking about in their loft I'll gladly give them a new home.

CP+B y'all

CP+B...the best agency in the world? I think it's right up there. So I'd expect a bit more originality from the fresh, young interns battling to get a job there...Flight of the Conchords have nailed this sort of video to death, and many others. But it is funny. And well done. What a place that must be. Ideas and snowboarding. A good tiring life.

The man your man could smell like

I loooooove the current Old Spice campaign and this spot is about as perfect as you can get. Great execution and an awesome line...'the man your man could smell like.' Brilliant.

Holy Smoke

A friend's Straight 8 entry from a couple of years back.

Cult classic not best seller...

(Movie on twice for some reason!)

Playing with Piccadilly

Here are some more of the interactive executions from the McDonald's Piccadilly sign (click on it to view bigger). It's all live right now. I'll post a video soon too...the 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' is my favourite. We tried to stage the world's first Rock, Paper, Scissors competition down there, but Westminster Council put a stop to it...boooooooo.
