GlastoTag – One huge festival photo. A whole load of tags

This is really cool campaign by Orange, they are aiming for the Guinness World Record for the ‘most people tagged in an online photo’ with this 1,300-megapixel picture captured at around 3.45pm on 23 June from Pyramid Stage @ this year Glastonbury Festival. I didn’t go but I kind of wish I had gone, just so I could tag myself in this!

Looks as if I am not the only one who likes this!

What really makes the site useful is the ability to filter the tags to show just your tagged Facebook friends, as undoubtedly you would have lost them at some point. It’s cool to also find out those of your friends you didn’t know were at Glasto!

Well done Orange, didn’t think I’d ever say that!

Phonebook has a new meaning.


In Japan, internet ad spending of the Internet had grown larger than that of newspaper for the first time in 2009. The introduction of the iPhone, Kindle and iPad frightened the publishing industry. If this went on, paper could become worthless in future? Phonebook’s mission was to find or develop new communication value of Print media.


They focused on the fun of “turning the pages” which is the unique value of print media. Next, they focused on “picture books” for kids and combined the idea with iPhone. That is “PhoneBook”.

Using PhoneBook requires both a children’s book and parent’s iPhone. Children sit on the parents’ laps to flip its pages and the texture of papers as well as actions or music of digital devices. Kindle or iPad will never be able to follow this only with their digital attributes.


・PhoneBook’s demo movie has been played more than 200,000 times on the Internet.
・Over 100,000 people visited the PhoneBook WEB site since its opened.
・Over 3000 tweet about PhoneBook can be seen on Twitter.
・Got 7th place in total BOOK sales ranking in “Amazon. co. jp”.

Here is the video they used to promote it….

Adidas Urban Art Guide to Berlin

Posted in Alternative advertising, Art, Other Stuff, viral by tomgooday on June 3, 2009


Adidas is no stranger to the street culture scene, and their latest move seems right on target: the Adidas Urban Art Guide to Berlin is an iPhone travel guide listing Berlin’s best graffiti.

Users download the application for free, giving them access to a Google map of Berlin that’s pegged with the locations of its urban art masterpieces. The map can be navigated in several ways: “Find artworks nearby” provides users with a map of art works in their immediate vicinity; “Tour guide” calls up a curated walking tour of local urban art; and “Gallery” gives users the option to browse the city’s street art and then seek out their favourite pieces. Users can click on each marked location to call up images as well as information about the piece, the artist and further references.
