Tjongolongo, I spotted this video on YouTube and saw that it’s currently in the top 10 of viral videos. I can imagine why, you don’t often see the groom first changing his Facebook status to married after the minister pronounced him married before even kissing his bride! He even gave his new wife her mobile phone to update her status as well. he even managed to squeeze in some time to update his Twitter account.
Ever wondered who picks up furniture from the street? Furniture design company Blu Dot came up with a ‘real good’ experiment to find out. The company left 25 of its ‘Real Good’ Metal chairs around New York City last month. Hoping ofcourse that New Yorkers would pick up the chair and take it home with them.
Coca-Cola has launched the Coke Zero Facial Profiler. It’s a worldwide social experiment to find people who look just like you, your identical twin! You can sign up to the application with your Facebook account and the profiler will scan your photos and compare them with others that have signed up. After comparing, out comes a match and you should be looking at your look-a-like or long lost twin!
My brother forwarded me this video on the Muppets singing Bohemian Rhapsody a couple of days ago and I just find it hilarious! I love the Muppets, I grew up watching the Muppet Show and later on watched Muppets Tonight. These guys have been around since the 70s and are still going strong. After watching the video I started digging around and found out that the Muppets are even on Twitter now!
I came across this very cool use of Facebook by IKEA. So cool, yet so simple. What IKEA did was the following.
1. Open a new store (Malmo, Sweden)
2. Create a Facebook profile page for the store manager Gordon Gustavsson.
3. Upload images from the IKEA showrooms
4. Tell everybody that the first person to tag their name to a product in the pictures wins the product!
Ever since I started telling people I was riding the Google Wave, they kept asking me ‘What is Google Wave’? My short explanation is: ‘it’s a real time communication and collaboration tool. Instead of writing and sending e-mails to different people you can have it all in one wave and see it updated in realtime as well! All the information in one tool!’ ‘And that’s just the tip of the iceberg’

The people of Improv Everywhere finally did it, they made a follow up to their Food Court Musical. For this mission the location was a grocery store, six undercover actors burst into song in a grocery store accompanied of course the necessary silly choreography. I am a real fan of Improv Everywhere, ever since I first saw the Food Court Musical and Frozen Grand Central. I think I’ve seen about all of their missions.
That’s when you a get an exhibition of phrases said on Twitter that are made into drawings. The artist that does all this is David Hoang a non chocolate liking artist who describes himself as two parts cultural ecologist, one part DJ. When he looks at the phrases said in a Tweet he is inspired to draw a picture.
Well, I don’t and am not going to, but apparently if you’re on Twitter, you can! On 30 October (Happy Halloween!) an online séance or as it’s called on Twitter, a Tweance…, will be held. According to the Sun, during this session the Twitterers can talk to deceased stars. Twitterers can nominate stars and four of them will be quizzed by psychic Jayne Wallace.
