NAB’s latest ad campaign – Break up

Most of you would’ve seen or heard of NAB’s latest ad – the break up, featuring NAB’s break up with the other members of the big four banks. Some of you may like it, some may not. Personally I think it takes more than just a “smart” campaign to make up for all the trouble … Continue reading

Twitter Advertisements

I bumped into an old friend Kim on the way to work, we got to talking about social media advertising, and Twitter came up. She was telling me about people getting paid to post ads on twitter and it reminded me of John Mayer’s Campbell soup deal(Seriously, what a bad move). Ben Rowe posted something … Continue reading

Youtube killed the TV star

Just like how video killed the radio star, YouTube killed the TV star. No I am not saying that old media is dead, I’m simply making an observation, that the reign of TV is over.

If you are reading this post, Chances are you know Google. Every once in a while, a product or service will come along and change our lives as we know it. Google was one of them. Google single-handedly killed ignorance, or should I say – Google killed the excuse; the excuse of not knowing, because … Continue reading

Why?

Why? The age-old question and possibly the reason to all things revolutionary in the history of mankind to date. Seeing as this is my first post, it would be totally appropriate for me to get way ahead of myself and give this question a run for its money – “Why are we here?” Or rather, … Continue reading
