I love everything about this. Came out in January, but only just discovered it. Late to the party as usual. Amazing track by Marcus Marr. Massive chugging bass. Bizzaro lyrics. Super simple but lovely video.
Last night I was trying to find a particular interactive music video. I tried mailing a couple of people: “You know, the one where there’s a window in the middle, and objects come out of it in other windows, and I think you could buy them or something”.
When you get to the end of the post, you’ll hopefully see that I’m not as stupid as you perhaps think I am right now.
I had a good old dig around to find it, and on my way unearthed a few gems I’d not seen before. Hopefully you haven’t seen all of them…
Rugby by Brightly
Really interesting video that pulls in live image searches from Giphy so you’ll never see the same video twice. It works incredibly well.
Do Not Touch by Kilo
Crowd-sourced-cursors work brilliantly well in this super interesting video for Kilo. Might be by favourite of the lot.
Carry Me by Bombay Bicycle Club
Really lovely interaction in this one. Very simple. But super satisfying. Give it a go.
Then Finally. I found the video I was looking for…
Golden Chains by ALB
Although unfortunately I can’t find an actual live version of the experience anywhere. There’s also a case study that says you were able to buy all the items on eBay. See. It’s pretty much like I described at the top of the post…
Yeah yeah blogged it last week. Now all the kids at Dekmantel are wearing them…
This new video from Ross From Friends is quite lovely.
Especially the back story. Aaaaah.
I’ve seen lots of people trying to get a bit fruity or fresh with their GDPR reminders. None of them stuck, until now. Swearing isn’t big, or clever, but it does work on me (sometimes)…
Man buys rusty old Japanese knife for $3 and transforms it. Stick around to the end. Ridiculous.
It’s been seen by 24m people (at the time of posting). But that means there’s still a lot of us who hadn’t seen it. Including me. Until just before I posted this. And maybe you? Until now.
I don’t fully agree with all of it all the time, but The Outline is a wonderful thing. A publication that’s well written and beautifully designed for phones and computers. Loved this piece that came in the email yesterday: Productivity Is Dangerous.
Perhaps most surpsingly of all they’ve also managed to make advertising that doesn’t make you want to punch it in the face. I even shared a Goldman Sachs Blockchain Ad they’d made. Not because it was a good or bad ad. Because it was the best way of describing the Blockchain I’d come across. To be fair I’ve no idea who made the ad, maybe I should be congratulating the Goldman Sachs guys, but I’d rather not.
I’ve stuck a couple more screengrabs underneath. But if you want to read all about the design and see more, head over to Code and Theory’s page on how and why they did what they did. Kudos to them.
