Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that made my day this week:

Laura Branigan – Self Control remix was my soundtrack of this week. It’s available as a free download

I love this modern dance performance that integrates with a digital experiential artwork

I have been working long hours on a new business pitch over the past couple of weeks and this video by Canadian agency UNION resonated more than it probably normally would

The John Lewis ad sparked a discussion in our team today, was it just excessively twee or really bad? I am inclined to go with really bad. John Lewis don’t seem to have learned from their previous years adverts that get picked apart for some form of offence like say animal cruelty – like the dog left in the kennel. This year you have a child that largely seems neglected by his mother.

Finally CBS News new 24-hour streaming news channel is the closest manifestation to TV advertising on the net I have seen, there is no clickthroughs or interactivity.
