How to make an impression


Enough of this online advertising stuff, sometimes you need to jump into the real world to make an impact.

Flickr user Live U4 is uploading photos of various super-sized building mods as part of the promotion. I think I can make out the Spanish enough to figure out that this is a Nike campaign in conjunction with the local JWT advertising offices in Mexico.

Be sure to also check out the giant, diving goalie by Adidas in Germany too.

UPDATE: Bummer! I just read elsewhere that this “crash ball” is just a photoshopped concept. But the diving goalie is real and this one of a giant ball crushing a Mercedes is real as well.

Yahoo Video adds sharing

Last night Yahoo Video added uploading so you can share your videos with your friends and the world.
