Welcome to the street where originality lives; the adidas Originals neighborhood. This is where athletes, musicians, skaters, artists, entertainers and more all come together to show their colors, their style and their originality.
Part of an interesting interview with Banksy by The Times:
CCTV cameras are one of his obsessions at the moment; they are, he says, one of the worst things about modern Britain.
“The amount of security cameras gets on my nerves. Obviously from a professional point of view, but also on a more philosophical level. I don’t understand why Britain has embraced cameras more than anywhere else — is it because we’re desperate to feel we still matter and we quite enjoy the idea someone is always watching us? I hate it when they say, ‘If you’ve done nothing wrong then you’ve got nothing to hide.’ Everyone’s got something to hide, otherwise there’s something really wrong with them.”
Directed by James Frost, OK Go and Syyn Labs. Produced by Shirley Moyers. The official video for the recorded version of “This Too Shall Pass” off of the album “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky”. The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs ( http://syynlabs.com/ ) over the course of several months.
Ad execs, take note. Honda execs, back to the drawing board…these guys do some very nice videos (check out their running machine)
BMW has hit paydirt with the most watched BMW YouTube video ever (1.6 million views since March 5) in “Dinner for Double R”, a promotional video for the S 1000 RR superbike. Most of us have seen the oldest trick in the book, removing a table cloth from a table and leaving wine glasses and plates in place. Would it be possible to pull of the same trick on a large banquet table using a BMW S 1000 RR bike going from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds? The video provides links to Planet Power, BMW TV (bmw.tv), and the BMW Motorrad Facebook fan page.
Thanks to the Inspiration room for another nice one.
