The Techno Viking Archive

November 19th, 2009

Everyone knows the Techno Viking video, right? It’s that weird guy dancing in the street during the Berlin Fuck Parade in 2000. But what I didn’t know it that the original title is actually Kneecam No 1 and that it was filmed by Matthias Fritsch. He did some research on his video and found out that it was viewed over 20,000,000 times and made a small exhibition about it: The Techno Viking Archive.
Remember: “The Techno Viking doesn’t dance to the music, but the music dances to the Techno Viking”.

I don’t know that much about this music video except that it’s “Luv (sic) pt. 2” by Nujabes. It could be a viral for the Casio EXILIM EX-F1 camera … But I enjoyed it anyway.

Helicopter Boyz In Yomiuri Land

October 1st, 2009

Some time ago, Nikon launched a new camera with a built-in projector, the Coolpix S1000pj. GT Tokyo strapped some of these cameras onto the Helicopter Boyz and let them take some pictures. The Boyz then did their live dance performance at Yomiuri Land with the cameras still strapped onto them. Great stuff!

Roman Signer for Kvadrat

August 13th, 2009

Anders Byriel, the CEO of Kvadrat (a Danish design-textiles company) invited Roman Signer to do some of his signature performances. Roman decided to fire some explosives with 50 meters of Kvadrat fabric attached to the end. Maybe he should do a collaboration with Christo.

Honda Insight on Vimeo

April 27th, 2009

A month ago Honda launched its TV commercial “Let It Shine” for its hybrid car called Insight. They now placed the ad on the online video service Vimeo and I must admit it is quite awesome. Have a look at it here.
This is probably the best video intergration since the YouTube Wario Land Ad.
Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam didn’t only make the TV commercial but also this first ever rich media take over spot (yeah, that’s a mouth full) on Vimeo.

Extreme Sheep LED Art

March 18th, 2009

What do you get when you dress sheep with LED suits? A pretty great video. BUT, I’m not convinced it’s all real. I guess they faked some parts, especially the part where they recreate the Mona Lisa and the shots from a distance. The video is viral for Samsung LED TV sets. Entertaining though.

Best ad I’ve seen in a while: How To Smoke Smarties. No, not the Smarties we know here in Europe, but the American kind.
