Supermodel's strip for Climate Change

Yep that's right, what says support climate change better than a collection models taking off their clothes, well nothing according to's Global Day of Climate Action. In their own words they wanted see whether they could have an effect via this method as a way of cutting through and by passing the usual channels... well it worked for Peta.

Kasabian 'Underdog' Football Hero Viral

To promote the new track by Kasabian, Underdog, a team of freestyle footballers took part in this Football Hero challenge, kicking the balls against the relevant colours in time with the music. Slightly random, but works pretty well as you can see in the below video.

Three leaping wolves and a moon - Jose Luis Rodriguez's award winning photo gets the meme treatment

Once again a photoshop adapt has made my Friday morning, with the classic 'hey there's a wolf... at night... how about if there were three of them... and a moon?'. Adapting the winning entry of the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 by Jose Luis Rodriguez's, this take on the meme which swept through the internets earlier in the year is simple brilliance.

Step Up to The Mic - Joint Venture Between Myspace and Titan Outdoor

Once again Outdoor refuses to lay down and admit defeat in the face of the fact that the online revolution is here, in another example which truly demonstrates that the two media can work as one. In a fantastic example by Titan and a three-week joint promotion with MySpace, called 'Step Up to the Mic', we see users stepping onto their soapbox and showing off their vocal power across 300 digital screens in the U.S, U.K and Ireland.

By visiting the “Step Up to the Mic” page on MySpace users can upload up to 50 characters of text and an image, and share their thoughts, messages, and best wishes to their mates or family members. As well as this using the pull of Myspace, a host of celebrities and music artists will be invited to communicate with fans, expressing all the things they are passionate about.

I actually do quite like this idea, which I really do think moves things in the right direction, reading some of the comments it does seem to be a real mixed bag, however Myspace does shine in its own individualism and non-conformity which I do think is quite endearing... if not completely my bag.

Braquo: YouTube/ MSN Homepage Takeovers

In the past we have seen a number of innovative homepage takeovers, and lets be honest when executed well, who could get tired of them. Yes okay production budget may get pushed a little, but I am sure the click throughs and PR off the back of them make the whole thing worth while. Anyway, getting back to the point, the latest example of one of these fantastic homepage dominations is for Braquo a new French crime TV series. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it already.

Miley Cyrus 'Goodbye' Twitter Rap

Those following Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) on Twitter will know by now that she had deleted her account. Not quite contempt with a quietly walking away, Miley has made a stand rapping about why on Youtube. Fans of her since yesterday have been able to voice their views against the hashtag #Mileycomeback (Although something tells me that I think we'll see her on there again in some way soon). Until then here is the rap itself for all those interested.

Marge Simpson Strips for Playboy Cover

That's right, after 30 years on our screens Hugh has finally given Marge Simpson her own shot at being a Playboy Covergirl. Readers will be able to see this on the November issue of Playboy, and I think you'll agree that after popping out three kids she certainly gives the Girls Next Door a run for their money.

Disney Pixar 'UP' Balloon Stunt

It's normally pretty difficult to hide away from a Disney Pixar movie premier at the best of times, however on Sunday (4th October) I think 'Up' may have raised the bar slightly. Marketing Agency Beatwax carried out an awesome stunt, navigated a hot air balloon through an open Tower Bridge.

Shown in the video above, the balloon which has been making its way around Europe was designed to replicate the popular scene from the movie, where the main character (a retired balloon salesman) ties a hundreds of balloons to his house, and sets off for adventure.

Rick Astley - Rick Dinner Rolls (see what they've done there?)

Frequent users of YouTube will know that there is probably nothing more annoying than viewing that must see video only to be Rick Rolled (an Internet meme typically involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up"). Well now this has been taken to down a slightly odd path, so that now you can do this in real life, in fact just before dinner, with a Rick Roll.
