Downloadable app that makes Facebook look like a spreadsheet. Like the idea. Don’t like the video. Skip to 30secs to avoid most of the annoyance.
Lots of visual trickery. Nice promo by Vincent Haycock.
Thousands of tiny LED lights released over the Bonaroo festival.

By CP+B Europe, the app has already been downloaded more than 50,000 times.
W+K are promoting the N8 Pink with this cool film shot like a proper pop promo, featuring Barbie dolls dancing to the Sugababes track Freedom. As you can tell from the video still above, David Lynch would approve. Also love the Lazer Tits reference. The video has short snappy YouTube copy, tagging, and annotations. The Making Of is good too.
#PinkIsFreedom also become a worldwide trending topic yesterday helped by this smart YouTube page design. The video has just hit 1m views.
