A Subway Ad Blows a Woman's Hair Around, But There's A Twist copy

A Subway Ad Blows a Woman’s Hair Around, But There’s A Twist

A couple of months back a Swedish subway ad caught a lot of attention in Sweden and on the internet by showing a woman’s hair blowing in the wind whenever a train arrived at the subway. The fun digital subway ad in Sweden for hair-care products was rigged up to recognize when trains entered the station—and then showed a woman’s hair blowing all around, as though windswept by the train.

 

Using the very same concept, Garbergs, Stockholm, Sweden were inspired to create another attention-grabbing display. But this time there is a twist to the story.

Samsung Mocks Apple With Their Own Galaxy Note 4 Stress-Test Video

Having poked fun of Apple in a series of tweets after the controversial YouTube video suggested malleability of the iPhone 6 plus, the South Korean firm on Thursday posted a two-minute video on its blog showing off the three-point bend test process behind its latest Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

“Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Endures the Gluteus Maximus” which delivers exactly what the title says. You’ll marvel, or not, as the Samsung Galaxy note 4 survives the stress test set to a techno beat. Robotic buttocks, sporting blue jeans and equal to the weight of a 200-pound human being, pose the biggest challenge.

A Fragrant Slap at Sony’s Deal With Activision

Xbox cannot explicitly advertise the launch of the highly anticipated first-person shooter Destiny. So, it came up with clever trick to draw attention anyway: Promote a non-existent cologne with the same name as the game.

“The new fragrance by Xbox,” reads the copy on a simple ad (posted to Xbox’s social channels late last week) with a blue crystal bottle labeled Destiny. The equally coy website encourages visitors to check with retailers about Xbox One offers.

India Can Change! – Be that Change

India celebrated its 68th Independence Day on 15th August. What has changed in India since the British Raj? India is still the country that has more temples than toilets, a country where VIP’s are treated like GOD; Littering in public places is a very common site… So what exactly has changed since 15th August 1947? If you ask me NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

No doubt, we can celebrate a superficial sense of freedom, independence and change this Independence Day, but the fact remains that change will always come from within.

This thoughtful short film produced by famous Telugu actor Allu Arjun is probably the best thing you will watch today.

Here’s the English transcript of the Telugu lines spoken at the end of the video:

Performing our duties is also patriotism. Change begins with us.

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”.-

Martin Luther King, Jr.

I Am That Change!

Chop It Off- An Apology From Indian Men To Every Woman

Chop It Off – An Apology From Indian Men To Every Woman

Is your sister or your girl-friend safe? Because being a woman in India… kinda…SUCKS! When you hear all the cruel, depraved, sick and disgusting things that men do to women, it makes my heart drops to my stomach. How can a girl feel safe in such a country?

Every girl and woman should be able to live safely, feel protected and grow up free of violence, because she DESERVES IT!

Let’s make anti-rape culture, the new culture.

East India Comedy’s video drives a powerful message home. Men condemn acts of violence against women and feel ashamed and deeply apologetic about being men in a country that treats women worse than Saudi Arabia.

Is everyone going to have a positive response to the video? Probably not. The video may not have an impact on everyone who views it or may not agree to the punishment for rape.

“If a man rapes you, you should chop off his d*ck. And make him eat it for breakfast. Simple as that.”
