This video, filmed over the course of 15 months, depicts a man doing some bus stop dancing while waiting for public transport. During the video, the man shows off his best Michael Jackson moves to the world.
You have to admire Verizon’s audacity in creating this advert to try and snag AT&T customers over to their network, by playing upon Apple’s “There’s an App for That” tagline used in their iPhone & App Store adverts (in case you’ve been living in a cave for the past year, you’ll find plenty of them here).
But it’s not just Verizon that’s brand jacking Apple’s App Store advert, Pepsi have created a chat up application named “AMP UP Before You Score“… No doubt this will offend some, but that’s the whole point, they’ll get plenty of free publicity that way… anyway it’s an amusing and nicely designed iPhone app, plus it’s coded well.

I know it’s very immature but what the hell, it made me laugh (especially 3 minutes in). Although it’s worth bearing in mind that this is actually quite funny even without the dubbing (f*cking scary actually!). Special thanks to Ed Alves for posting this on his Facebook wall, what terrific friends I have!
Microsoft have surpassed themselves, as only Microsoft can. I never thought my nomination of their Songsmith advert for worst video of 2009 could be beaten… unbelievably, they’ve proven me wrong!
The Windows 7 Launch House Party? At first I thought this was a parody, but no, it’s actually real! Just make sure your diary is full between 22-27 October, otherwise you could end up at a house party, with your IT department!?!?

UPDATE: For a brilliant response by Charlie Brooker of the Guardian and to find out why the Microsoft video is the most shitasmic cultural artefact in history… plus to find out what the hell a shitasmisa cultural artefact is anyway, click here
This is pure f***king genius!!
There isn’t a designer in the world that won’t relate to this!

As I’m a bit of a closet statistics junkie & as these videos have been bouncing around the web for the past 2-3 years, I thought I’d compile a post with some of the best.

I saw this video posted on Mark Kragh’s (Founder of Know Your Planet) Facebook profile this morning and thought what a wonderful example for inspiration… proves that with the right motivation, mindset & determination, anything is possible!
So next time you think something is too difficult or you’re getting frustrated with everything, remind yourself of this video, things won’t seem so bad after all.
and remember if something really inspires you, please use Bernd’s inspiration icon
The importance of punctuation!
Here’s another example (found on Unionversity)

As I’ve re-quoted before “Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital“ Aaron Levenstein
This video makes compelling reading/watching, but read between the lines, there’s more to this than meets the eye, major changes are unfolding in the social media environment, information/data/ID aggregation is becoming the new hot potato, the shift is about linking you to the stuff you want to know in a transparent & convenient way.

Also note Marta doesn’t use the that annoying Social Media Expert moniker, she calls herself a Bonafide Marketing Genius, now that’s a great job title! (as long as you live up to it of course, although reading her blog, it looks like she does)
