Picture the scene:
- A kids birthday party in the park.
- The adults are dressed up as Ironman, Spiderman, Batman, and Venom; to the childrens delights.
- A quick rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ for the birthday boy.
What could possibly go wrong?
Just remember folks…

I think this might be my favourite video on YouTube.
Every so often I find myself watching it again. It’s nuts, but there’s so many moments in it I love. Anyone else feeling it? Just me then?? I don’t care….

With one simple Facebook stunt this little town is now on the map as a tourist destination.
A lovely example of people connecting with people, not brands.

RobotFlaneurThe idea is simple: pick a city, and every 30 seconds it will take you to a random place and show you the Google StreetView image. Each view is not important. What’s interesting is if you leave it running and occasionally glance at it. You might recognise some views in some cities, otherwise there’s a lot of mundanity: suburbs, motorways, traffic signs. These are the grain of the city and vary wildly. /via Dentsu Blog. http://robotflaneur.com/
Future MusicReally smart use of the Storify platform to continue the conversation.

BBC Marketing (online) discuss their social media strategy for Series 2 of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.
Series 2 of the brilliant BAFTA award-winning comedy started on BBC2 this week.
You can’t embed the show itself – the clip above is a part of the extra content on the
site. It’s also got Kevin Eldon performing stand-up, with a new comedian being added each week. Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, Brass Eye, Alan Partridge) is also involved so the whole thing stinks of quality.
If you missed
Episode 1 then watch it on iPlayer before they expire.
