ZenithOptimedia Moxie Trendspotting - Location Based Services

The ZenithOptimedia Moxie Trends video this month focuses on one of the hot social media / digital topics - Location Based Services (or "LBS" for short).

Nicola Smith, Kimberly Davis, Nick Burcher, Adam Hemming and Nicholas Tay are your guides as ZenithOptimedia Moxie take a trip around the globe looking at the big players and latest developments in LBS. It's not just Google Latitude, FourSquare and Gowalla - they look at local trends in Europe and Asia too.

A highly useful video for those that are interested in the latest developments in soical media technology.

Being Batman - Episode Two - "Not Yet, He Ain't"

Continuing my unofficial role as the blog to Becoming/Being Batman, I am proud to highlight episode two of season two - "Not Yet, He Ain't".

In this epsiode, Wayne is finding it hard to get motivated. However, there's an app that will help launch the plot!

Being Batman - Episode One - "The Dark Knight Returns"

It been 10 months since the end of "Becoming Batman". With the promise of a second season, we finally have the new episodes of "Being Batman". This time is glorious HD!

Thanks to Stuart Laws, Al Clayton and the rest for carrying on with such a great concept.

Let the fun begin!

Playstation Move Commerical

With the launch of the motion-sensitive "Playstation Move" controllers coming later in the year, Sony has begun the campaign to place the Move into the public mind-set in an attempt to set itself ahead of the Microsoft Natal coming at the end of 2010.

One of the first commercials to be released is the below video that tries to demonstrate the product itself whilst making fun of their Microsoft Natal and Nintendo Wii rivals.

I have to admit that this made me laugh more than it really should have!

Adidas - Star Wars Collection

Adidas have today launched their 1st commercial to advertise their upcoming Star Wars collection.

The ad, featuring their celebrity figure-head David Beckham, is meant to be the start of a series of ads highlighting the collection over the next couple of months.

Being a fan of both the Original Star Wars Trilogy and the Adidas Originals, I personally can't wait to get my hands on a pair.

It's a tough decision, but a sample of what's on offer can be found at the website, or from my top 3 below:

Nolan's Cheddar Advert - Eye Of The Mouse

Happy 2010 everyone!

It has been far too long since my last post, and for that I apologise. However, the sudden desire to post some of the highlights in advertising has been prompted by coming across a fantastic new ad.

The clip in question is promoting, of all things, Nolan's "Seriously Strong" Cheddar cheese.

Rather than ruin what you are about to watch, I would just like to implore you to continue watching as I promise you that the video has a happy ending!
