Lily Allen Night

I’ve never been a massive fan of Lily Allen – but that’s changed a bit tonight. Here’s why.

Reason 1

Check out this cool video for the 2nd single off her new album. Called “Fuck You” it was written with George W Bush in mind. The video doesn’t have anything to do with that, but I love it.

I can only explain it is as ‘life as seen through multi-touch’.

Reason 2

Her music actually sounds better than I remember.

This is a massive slice of poptastic pie. Admit it.

Reason 3

She was the original MySpace darling. With over 685,500+ followers it’s clear she’s nailing Twitter. She also appreciates a good mashup.

RT @parlophone found a mashup of @lilyroseallen ‘s ‘Not Fair’ & the Littest Hobo theme tune, and it’s GENIUS! http://bit.ly/KjApD

Good work all round really. Props to the girl.

TV commercial reminding advertisers to make TV commercials

Saw this on the TV last night. Few classic lines in here.

YouTube link.

Blurb about who it’s for:

Thinkbox, the television marketing body for the main UK commercial television broadcasters, has launched its first ever TV advertising campaign, to remind advertisers of the unrivalled power, value and effectiveness of TV advertising and to encourage advertisers considering using TV for the first time to seek help from Thinkbox.

Sign of the times?

Halston New York Fall 09 Collection

I’m not known for being the most fashion conscious man around – but this slick video from Halston New York caught my eye.

It was filmed to highlight their Fall 09 collection and is a single tracking shot (I wonder how much digital jiggery-pokery is going on) with grogeous cars and models, cool styling and a good song.

Great way to show your collection.

What’s In The Box?

Right – stand by for this.

This film was made by Dutch student (yeah another one) Tim Smit on a unbelievable budget of $150.

He shot the footage in his local village then used After Effects and 3D Studio Max to create the look.

Apparently the Hollywood studios are sniffing around already.

‘What’s In The Box’ also has an official site with a puzzle you need to crack to get in.

They’ve also created a website for the mysterious Babel Industries. which showcases some of the technology seen in the film, such as the Involentary Stomach Discharger (ISD).

Because the story (so far) seems to connect with gamers who love Half-Life there’s a lot of buzz being generated.

I’m expecting to hear a lot more about this.

Fantastic work.

I spotted the video on Harry Northover’s site. This fella could be a star of the future based on the work he’s doing. And he’s only just sitting his GCSEs. Scary.
