Amazing American Horror Story: Coven Trailer

Posted by on Aug 17, 2013 in Blog, Television, Video | No Comments

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.

I love when show creator Vince Gilligan was asked how the final season ends, he said “As the movie title goes, there will be blood!”

Facebook’s First TV Ad

Posted by on Oct 8, 2012 in Advertising, Blog, Social Media, Video | No Comments

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.
