Chicken Cam

I love creative advertising and LG Mobile have outdone themselves. The lead into the ad where you see Dave the cameraman and his camera rigging inventions sketched out and some he has made were hilarious but when Lizzy is introduced, it got interesting in a hurry. All the different uses for Lizzy and the new GallusCam or steady feather camera technology were fantastic, especially the little chicken noises you can hear at different parts of the ad.

Who needs a GoPro?

Blurred Lines vs Defined Lines

Robin Thicke is an American-Canadian musician who recently put out a very catchy song named Blurred Lines, which has been a massive success around the world and the official music videos (both censored & uncensored) have received over 200 million views on YouTube alone.

The content of the music video with either scantily clad (censored) or topless (uncensored) models dancing & prancing has unsurprisingly drawn criticism around different groups around the world.

As part of 40 comedy skits put together by Auckland University Law students for their annual Law Revue, one group of inspired students thought they’d do a feminist parody of Robin Thicke Blurred Lines, named Defined Lines. Since it is from a feminist point of view, the lyrics have been rewritten, reversed and the models are now scantily clad blokes. For those that are easily offended, the content and lyrics are a bit rude in places but it is really really well done – very creative!
