Seriously cool branded content

I'd forgotten how good this piece of film is from DC Shoes featuring Ken Bloch.

Just goes to show that the theory of brands now being sources of entertainment content is very true.

Genius two ronnies gadget video

I laughed out loud for about 3 mins when I watched this. Pure genius - particularly the Eggs Box.

Nuji social shopping app

I really like the look of this new social shopping app from Nuji. It allows you to tag a product by either scanning the bar code or taking a photo, using your phone. The items are saved online and Nuji alert you when there is a deal for one of the products you like.

Naturally, all your tagged items are shared through Facebook and twitter.nuji.jpg

Montage web app for brands

A colleague sent me this nifty little app, called Montage, which unsurprisingly, creates a Montage of all the content for a particular key word. Here's one I prepared earlier for Lambrini [a client].

The description says it bring sin content from all open social media sources e.g. twitter and blogs, a bit like - but the handful that I tried brought back stories from online newspapers only.

Still, it is quite a cool way to show what's been said about a brand.

Status updates for kids learning

Here's a nifty use of social media - a game where toddlers share the activities of eating, brushing and sleeping with their little friends by placing blocks in the correct hole. Placing these blocks in the cube sends a status update to the cube of their friends.

I might get one of these for my brother for Xmas - he's 38 but could still do with some guidance:)
