Know your memes. A Study of internet virals.

November 15, 2009

Picture 3

I came across this site; Know Your Memes. It is really good, and a must see for people wanting to understand the cause and origins of online virals. I had a good time this sunday going through all these mini dokumentaries (about 4 mins a piece), giving me the back story on virals such as; the keyboard cat, starwars kid, rickrolls, lolcats, numa numa etc. They also coverd some virals that I hadn’t caught on before, which was very interesting. But what I found truly interesting was when they explained how the market and the media tried to get in on the virals and make a profit, and how this affected the different virals. For example the Christan Bale Rant. This viral was heavily pushed by the media and thus peaking very quickly but then again fading away equally fast. This shows that in this example, for a viral to be long lasting it has to come from a more underground independent source.

A must see, for all online marketing people.

100 kilo website

January 18, 2009

We had a couple of days to spare in the office after new years so we decided to do something a bit different during those days. I have wanted to literally build a website for a while so this seemed like the perfect occasion to have a bit of fun and get down with some DIY. So we got a little money at our disposal, made some sketches and started going about getting hold of all the needed material. We bought a lot of plywood some 40 meters of wooden beams, a birds house for the home icon, a folder for the portfolio icon, spray cans, paint, wallpaper and a lots of other stuff, the video tells the rest of the story.

The music in the video is made by tsjekkoslovakia a band by some of my colleagues.

The footage was shot by the one and only, Karina Lavik

The company is M&L.

3D marketing

December 12, 2008

I have come across some truly inspireing Ideas using some fancy (but simple) 3D software to let you interact with an object using a piece of paper and a camera. I’ll let the videos speak for themself. They are in German, but you don’t have to know German to understand the awesomeness.

And

We tried that Ford Ka example  in the office. One of the guys downloaded the software to his Nokia. It works so easily, and its totally fun to interact with. Just point the camera at the paper and the car appears.

3D Fun for Everyone

Love the idea how some characters of an ad last in memory and can crossover different campaigns.

MR Sub on Youtube

October 9, 2008

This is one in a series of 8 little virals for MR SUB on Youtube. They are very funny, but the illustration style… I’m not so sure about, trying to be very cool, but at the end of the day isn’t it just a bit poor? The illustration is done by the well renowned James Patterson, so who am I to talk? Check his site on www.presstube.com

Check out http://uk.youtube.com/user/Proboscis75 for all of the videos.

Smart Car, Genius Website

July 22, 2008

Agency Republic has made the best car website in the history of car websites. The Smart Car website is truly a smart site, is it simple, informative, beautiful and so good it is viral. It achieves all this through an interactive, narrated, flash video experience. The narration and the scenes also makes it an incredibly British site, I have never felt so much like I am in England, while visiting a website before (if you keep the site open without interacting with it the narrator will ask for tea). Genius

Download Day 2008

June 11, 2008

Firefox® Download Day 2008 is a campaign aiming to break the “most downloaded software in one day” world record. Sounds like I am not the only one in the world with nothing to do.

However, as a developer, I support any action, movement, etc, to make people upgrade their web browsers.

So, please, if you are still using any Internet Explorer version, that’s a perfect time to change! Go Firefox®, Go!
