Products “du terroir” from France !

I just want to relay a really original video from a french guy launching an online shop promoting products “du terroir” from France. Those products are made by people wanting to preserve a certain vision of food, the one that has been transmitted from generations to generation, and which seems to get lost nowadays with the globalisation of the food market. I’ve been following his blog for quite some time, and reading on how difficult it seems to keep being motivated, and excited when creating your own one man only company ! So it only seems fair to make a little buzz for him (plus I got a really nice cooking blouse a while ago from him :-D)
Here is the video (sorry it’s in french):

And the blog is here, as well as the original article !

Flip Flop Freeride

With the summer (well, at least its july) comes its share of flip flops ! As indecently trendy, as the joy of having a plastic piece in between your toes is, this new kind of shoes are everywhere nowadays. And you can’t say that it’s not comfortable to feel the breeze of fresh air down there (unless you cubmate is in lack of affection with his soap ;-( ).
But who here really likes having something indecently wanting to separate big toe from his friends ? And who here really wants to look like a german tourist on holidays in the south of France ?
Well, I have the answer for you : topless sandals (no sexy picture involved 😉 )


Those are flip flops you simply stick under your feet. Of course you can get them off any time you want and it seems you can re-use them a couple of times (although I really don’t think it will work). From the advertising video, they seem to stick enough to walk around, flirt with Pamela on the beach, and even play some friendly soccer with friends … And all of that for under 10 bucks !!! So go ahead, look trendy, feel comfortable, and let them believe its the next piercing “a la mode” !

Brilliant

Axe, a deodorant (not sure this is the correct translation) maker, has been making some real good advertising campaigns for quite some times now. But this new one I found via Blog de Nuit is simply brilliant ! The tag line really puts it on the limit of acceptable, but just on the limit ! And the more you look it, the more you are going to like it ! My congrats to the maker of this one.

Here are a few of previous nice ones I got by mail :

Bud for ever !

Budweiser almost invented the Viral Marketing concept a few years back with the tremendous Waaazuuuupppp I’m sure you all still think about !
Although they are making some new ads every other day (Bier is somehow a competitive market in the US 😉 ).
This one I thought was worth sharing along… A good Biiiippp is so good sometimes !!!

Doooohhhh !

This video really gives you shivers all over the place !
Okye I’m driving fast, but there, it really gives you some material to think about !

The Sécurité Routière has been using some really shocking vidéo to promote safe driving for quite a time now. Sites like SortezRevenez really tells you that you can be the government, use modern communication techniques, and make work its way through crowds.
On a more funny side, this video talks about a completely different matter !
