Waitrose using QR Codes on TV

Spotted this at the weekend. Waitrose are using a QR code on their Xmas TV ad.

It’s a nice idea, but I had to stop the Sky box, rewind the TV, press pause, get my iPhone out, open a QR code reader, then take a photo. (It didn’t work btw).

Who on earth is going to do that normally?

The ad doesn’t bother to explain what the box-barcode-thing is either.

Interesting to add a mobile CTA but needs work.


David Boddington (Technical Director of Mobile Marketing agency Movement) has written a much more detailed post covering LOTS of issues it raises. It’s worth a read.

Here’s a clip from the improvised BBC2 sitcom The Trip.

Directed by Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play “loose versions of themselves” as they travel around the Peak District, Lake District, Scotland, Lancashire, and the Yorkshire Dales writing food reviews for a national newspaper. Read more about it here.

Love it.

Modernised 1982 Tron Trailer

There’s a real art to cutting a good trailer. While the basics have remained the same over the years, some aspects of that art have changed greatly in the past two decades.

The classic 80s Tron trailer gets a fan update – to see how it might be sold today.

For comparison here’s the original trailer.
