Music is my boyfriend.

There are are some interesting shakeups happening in the marketing world as of late…

Apple pulled an odd PR move this week. They spotted a fan created ad by a teenager on YouTube and decided to get their ad agency to collaborate with the creator.

Nick Haley, an 18 year old from England loved the iPod Touch so much that he created his own commercial and put it up on YouTube. The people from Apple saw it and liked it so much that they contacted him and decided to “buy” the rights to it. You can see Nick’s version on top, and the actual produced spot on the bottom.

Slightly older news, but interesting none-the-less. Radiohead decided to release their new album “In Rainbows” digitally and allow their buyer to decide how much they think the album is worth—An astonishingly groundbreaking move in an industry that guards its intellectual property like a cure for cancer.икони

Striking a Chord

I found this post on We-Make-Money-Not-Art about La Linea by Osvaldo Cavandoli (see video below) a French TV show from the early 70s. I love this concept of using a simple line to convey complex emotion/action.

Immediately upon seeing La Linea, I thought of a modern example of of this same technique… The new Hilton Hotel’s advertising campaign “Travel should take you places” (see video below).

I really love the simplicity of these.

You can find other clips of La Linea here, here, and here.
And the other three Hilton ads here, here, and here.
