The above video is a teaser for FX’s American Horror Story. This season is called Coven (each season is a stand-alone, extended mini-series of sorts). The first two released where Detention and Pins and Needles are just amazing. Now I am a huge fan of this show, so maybe I am biased, but these make me want to watch this season like yesterday. Makes me wonder why other channels can’t do something this creative cause I am just so sick of seeing trailers that are nothing but a fast paced montage of random clips from the show and/or movie.
Facebook, to celebrate reaching the 1 billion monthly user mark, has launched their first ad campaign. The visuals and production value are wonderful, but for the life of me I can’t believe this is the best “concept” they could come up with. I mean does this commercial make you want to use Facebook more if you are already a user, much less bring somebody to the site that has never used it before? I think not.
Not watched much Olympic overage this year, so I just saw the commercial for the first time yesterday. I have to admit I watched it several times in a tow. I loved it. Guess a lot of other folks didn’t. Reactions to it all across the board. This long and detailed story at Salon outlines the reactions and provides more analysis of an ad then I can recall reading in a long, long time.
