Facebook

Update:
June 26th I got an email from Facebook, they've reviewed my account and activated it again. The reason why they deactivated it was because I was in a group with contents that weren't allowed on Facebook.
They advice people to review their groups regularly, sometimes, because of the comments, the group changes content and is deactivated on Facebook


I'm .. or better, I was on Facebook already for a long time.
I saw people come and go, create new accounts because their account was disabled.
But I must say, always with a warning and a reason they told me.

Yesterday it happened to me. During the day I'm hardly ever on Facebook because I work. I wanted to react on what a friend posted about his group 'ThoseInMedia', which is very interesting. 'Your account has been disabled'. Without a warning.

I've send several e-mails because I want to know why. That's the least they can do. You can not disable accounts without people letting know why.

Friends from Facebook contacted me. One of them was blocked by Facebook because he was too social. What's the point than on a 'social network', gather 'friends', counting numbers and do nothing?
Did I 'do' something pornographic? No.
Did I post more links than normal? No. My blog is connected to Facebook though.
Did I harrass someone? Not that I know of.

The 'coincidence' is that a real life friend, who is also on Facebook but doesn't use it that much is blocked too ... also without a warning.

I don't know the reason yet. But I'm starting to believe now that 'friends' complain about 'friends' officially with Facebook and without checking they disable accounts. That's a weird situation.

So there are people out there who probably want revenge for one reason or another and do very weird stuff.

Las Vegas 'Chinchilli Day'

This is a fun way to promote a city.

What do you think of 'Pigeon Day' in Amsterdam. Remembering the revolution of the pigeons. Picture yourself in the 18th century. Picture yourself a scene from Hitchcock's 'Birds', but in Amsterdam. Pigeons everywhere, attacking people, shitting on people, giving germs to people, diseases spreading. But the humans survive. Okay ... which day shall I pick :)

Cadbury Caramilk 'Modern Dance'

Mm, I'd rather watch the 'eyebrow' commercial

Portfolio Night 7 promo

This is hilarious. Promo for the Portfolio Night 7 NY

Comfort Wipe Commercial

Why? I can only see the necessity if you have very short arms and are very tall. You know, they invent all sort of things to make your life 'easier', I've posted a couple of them in the past. No wonder people are getting fat

Oreo 'Magnetism'

I had to smile :)


Draftfcb

Hammer Pants Dance

Another Flash Mob video. To promote the reality show Hammertime. Filmed in LA ... it would scare the shit out of me :)

Child Labour 'Hammerchild'

This is another way to get attention for child labour


International Trade Union Confederation

Wilkins Coffee

Wow ... and people say we live nowadays in a very violent world because of television. This is a series of Wilkins Coffee commercials created by Jim Henson in 1957!! "It's not easy being green"

Dell Treats

It's circumstancial, but I never have been a big pc fan, or Dell fan. But after seeing this commercial ... uhm ... what is it? A toy?

I Love Twitter

I came home tonight, TV not connected. Twhirl was ... fortunately. One of my friends on Twitter posted who was the Stig. I fell off my chair. Told him that I couldn't watch BBC2 at the moment and look what he came up with ... I love this guy :)

Embeded code got an error ... so here's the link

Computer 'Reading' Emotion

Wouldn't it be terrific if there would be an application or a piece of software that measures your emotion when you read something on the interwebs?
Good marketing tool also.
Is the reader annoyed, angry, happy, surprised

Bestiario

Look at the navigation of this site. It's the business site of Santiago Ortiz who also did the 'Love Is Patient' project I posted earlier, the video wall.

Tampax 'Zack Johnson'

Why a guy?
Why 12min?
What does P&G wants with this ... uhm ... something, clippy, video, commercial thing?
It isn't too ridiculous for 12min, it's more like a teenage soap.

You will have to watch this.

Here some background information:
"Civilization, a video mural created for the new Standard hotel in New York City, depicts a journey from hell to heaven interpreted through modern film language using computer-enhanced found footage. This epic video mural contains over 300 individual channels of looped video blended into a multi-layered seamless tableau of interconnecting images that illustrate a contemporary, satirical take on the concepts of Heaven and Hell."

The History Channel Junior

I think these series of ads are very well done

It made me think. I'm sure this will work well with junior human beings. But what happened with a regular photo? Are our youngsters so numb with imagery that they need illustrations? Yes, I think so & no, I don't like it.

Don't get me wrong, I love these ads
