Ken Block Gymkhana 7 Wild In The Streets Of  Los Angeles - Someone Gave Ken Block a 845HP Mustang And This Is What Happened
Here’s the short story: Ken Block + 845HP 1967 Ford Mustang called Hoonicorn + a ton of insanity + tire smoke + director Ben Conrad (the guy behind the past three Gymkhana videos) + another ton of insanity + more tire smoke = Gymkhana 7

And here goes the long story – after three successful Gymkhanas, Ken Bock (the owner of DC Shoes and Hoonigan) partnered again with director Ben Conrad (also directed Recoil 2 and was the creative lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers and Iron Man 3) for for the seventh title of the Gymkhana series: Wild In The Streets Of Los Angeles. The clip shows Ken Block unleashed, driving a 845 horse power, 6.7-liter V8 supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang and drifting on the streets of LA. A crazy amount of insanity, a lot of driving skill, some cool panoramas of the empty streets of LA, a couple of Police cars involved in the Gymkhana and a lot of tire smoke make this clip the coolest one of the series. Check it our and let me know in the comments bellow.

I also embedded bellow Ken Block‘s first 6 Gymkhanas in case you missed them!

Amazing 17 Giga Pixel Image Of Yosemite Park
Here’s a cool 17 GigaPixel image of the Yosemite park taken back in 2009.
While this is not the biggest picture ever taken (here’s a 272 Giga Pixel image of Shanghai and 320 Giga Pixel interactive image of London which seem to be the largest interactive pics floating around), it’s amazing how much details it can contain.

Check out the video for a cool demo. It’s like playing with an infinite zoom to reveal details that I never believed were included in the picture.

In an effort to push it’s 2015 yearly catalog, the Swedish furniture giant IKEA appeals to a cool advertising parody which skewers Apple’s well known feature-based commercials for iPhone and iPad.
The commercial presents the BookBook (the 2015 IKEA catalogue) and explains it’s “advanced” features in a tablet-like ad style. This way, the BookBook comes with 328 pages of HD preinstalled content, the navigation is done via “tactile touch which you can actually feel”, the battery never ends and sharing with friends is simple and fun – “you literally share it”!!!

Check out the BookBook and enjoy …

Cool Moto X Interactive Magazine Print Ad That Is Actually ... Interactive!!!
Print ads are somehow boring to create … and even to read. While advertising in magazines and newspapers still brings new business and customers to companies, technical ads possibilities are very limited. Advertisers are blocked using images. No video, no sound, no GIF’s, no moving parts, just simple plain imaging, which limits the impact of ads and makes the advertising agency work harder to be creative and acquire reader’s attention.

Well … this is what I thought until now! Other than the classic “scratch-here-to-smell-this-perfume” there was literally no interactivity in offline magazine ads. But things start to change and advanced technology gets into offline advertising as well. Should we call it Offline Advertising 2.0?

Check out this cool Moto X print ad made by the advertising agency Digitas which allows readers to change the colors of the smartphone by touching various tone choices bellow the image. The ad appeared in 150,000 copies of the Wired January 2014 issue and made use of a slim transparent plexiglass slab, some LED lights, four small embedded batteries and some buttons disguised as color choices.

Let’s hear your thoughts about it in the comments. Also, what’s your take on the future of offline advertising? Will the magazine ads look the same as today in 10 years?
