Angry Birds Playable Birthday Cake

You remember when we first started to get those annoying messages from our friends about playing “Mafia Wars” and “Farmville” for the first time and the majority of us just ignored them as some passing phase. Still don’t think that these social and iphone/facebook app games are gonna have a future? With this Angry Birds birthday cake these games are now they’re becoming part of our real life more than we know if. Over 3 Million views on YouTube just for this video. Angry Birds the game had over 50 million downloads back in December, and Cityville on Facebook has over 100 Million regular users. WOW.

Do you think these types of games will sustain their popularity for much longer or be made primitive by new platforms?

Girl’s Rear View Cam Goes Viral

Just when you thought it was safe to believe beauty can come with brains, we find out that the Rear View Cam was created as a viral campaign for Levi’s. The too hot to be true pair Reanin Johannink and Jessie Gurunathan (TV star and singer) actually were just that. Colenso BBDO is behind the video, I applaud their work by the way, and came from Levi’s San Francisco headquarters 6 months ago.

What did you think when you first saw the video, did you think it was real? Are we getting better at spotting videos that were created by corporations? Let us know what you think!

Brand Engages Customers with GAMES

In the world of banking with many cliches about banks market, Standard Chartered Bank gave meaning to innovation. Using the knowledge about their target market and a new way of connection they envisioned with their customers, SCB created an engaging Facebook Campaign Game.

The idea is behind Ramaden, where family and friends gather inside of a tent. The game that SCB recreates that aspect of real life in a virtual setting, allowing users to create their own tent, decorate it with furniture, and invite guests to come visit. SCB credit cards are supplying the means of buying these items and gets exposure all over the game.

Although the campaign hasn’t attracted huge numbers (15,277), it says a lot about the future of marketing for corporations and company’s in making more interactive experiences for their customers.

Do you see a brand/company/website you love making a game out of their product? And reaching across millions of people? We sure do. Tell us what you think.

“Flip” Your Facebook Profile

Flip your Profile is avalanching its way through the Facebook world. The new Facebook app allows users to make videos in place of profile pictures. WHOA. Now that’s cool, or could be really horrible like we will see our friends fail at making creative, funny videos. I can’t wait lol. Facebook is being innovated til the end of the days, and is keeping its distance from the competition, for now.

The next big question becomes if it will be available for fan pages? This could become the start to some really big investments in viral, integrative campaigns and just awesome videos.

Do you think you will create a profile VIDEO? Let us know.
