how a little game of ‘scissors, paper, rock’ could get me sooo bothered. i mean, i get it, i get the game – after all i have been playing this game for years. i get that scissors can beat paper, and i get how a rock can beat scissors, but there is no way paper can beat rock. is paper supposed to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile? why the hell can’t paper do this to scissors? screw scissors, why can’t paper do this to people? why aren’t sheets of printer paper suffocating colleges as they print out paper work? ill tell you why, because paper can’t beat anybody! a rock would tear that shit up in 2 seconds. when I play ‘scissors, paper, rock’ i always choose rock. then when someone claims to have beaten me with their paper, i can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say… oh sorry i thought that your paper would protect you, you asshole.
you know those fantastic ‘tilt-shift’ photos that make everything look like a tiny model? well, now you can make your own. even your own photos.
killer app indeed.
augmented reality and social networking have been fused together in a lovefest for doritos brazil. packs of doritos sweetchilli – the latest flavour – bear a qr code directing users online to ‘release’ a doritos lover, a sweet and unique little cartoon like monster. the campaign, created by cubocc, an agency in sao paulo has seen some fantastic results so far with 23,000 lovers already being freed in a week. http://www.doritos.com.br/sweetchili/
upon being released, the lovers are added to their owner’s ‘orkut’ profile – the largest social network in brasil similar to facebook (but on a much smaller scale) – as a special application. owners can take pictures of theirlover, create birth certificates or even put the unwanted lovers up for adoption!
the most exiting part though is that the lovers have a mind of their own… with built in ai, lovers will interact with others online and can randomly ‘introduce’ their owners to other doritos lovers owners… amazingly, there are over 18 trillion possible doritos lovers combinations!
this follows news this week that the hugely successful and equally love driven ‘bring slow dancing back’ doritos campaign created by BBDO argentina has been awarded a platinum sol, the highest acclaim of the iberoamerican festival of advertising communication. BBDO’s win marks the first time in the history of the festival that an argentinean agency has been awarded the acclaim. look out for the campaign at this year’s cannes festival too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27kGHoreQow
