Today marks the 182nd anniversary of the birth of Eadweard J. Muybridge, the British photographer known for his pioneering work on animal locomotion. Google celebrates his birth with a doodle of his photos taken at the Palo Alto Stock Farm in Stanford, California. Titled “Sallie Gardner at a Gallop”, the series of photos shows that horses’ hooves do all leave the ground simultaneously. This series of photos stands as one of the earliest forms of videography. Isn’t it amazing that 134 years later it’s a Google Doodle!
The Google Doodle:
Ira Glass speaks about the creative process. There’s no way around it, you gotta do the work! I hope you enjoy this…
Here’s my take on the most memorable commercials:
Acura NSX—Seinfield vs. Leno was like a short story. What can I say…I’m a big fan of both Seinfeld and Leno. I liked the way Leno (aka Newman) thrawted Seinfeld efforts once again.
Chevy Silverado Apocolypse. Great set design. Kudos to the production team. I just wonder why Ford was mentioned.
Fiat Seduction. Mix beauty and a foreign language for instant appeal. I totally fell for it. Even liked the Abarth tattoo. Sex definitely still sells.
Honda—Ferris Bueller + Matthew Broderick. 25 years later, I still love the movie…and loved this commercial.
Chevy—Happy Grad. I could see this happening to me. It had me laughing out loud. And, what an accomplishment for 26 year old Zach Borst of New York who beat out other independent filmmakers for the Super Bowl Chevy spot.
So, there you have it…my top 5. Looks like the car spots really caught my eye. Which was your favorite?
