Die Antwoord, a pretty fucking strange three-piece rap-rave outfit. Suspiciously high production values. (via Tim Evans @ DTDigital)

WHAT’S COOL AND WHAT’S NOT FOR BRAND MANAGERS
Cool

 

Creating and publishing content that people genuinely love (Ray-Ban, Johnnie Walker)
Helping bring people together in interesting ways (Bendigo Bank, Football Australia)
Doing crazy shit that makes people laugh or intrigued (Volkswagen, Toyota)
Websites that actually do useful stuff for people (Nike)
Being aware of and connected to what’s going on in popular culture (MYER)
Having a real, distinctive, human personality (Steinlager)
Not cool

Assuming that anyone is interested in what you have to say about your brand
Trying to communicate your message before you’ve earned your audience’s attention
Assuming that the people who watch or engage with your ads are stupid
Taking away privacy and not at least giving relevance back in return
Letting your advertising agency setup a Facebook page for your campaign because “social media is important”
Not actually using the media that you’re making decisions about
Advertising that interrupts or annoys people in any way
Inspired by Jessica’s post a few weeks ago.

I don’t have a read [on Sarah Palin]. I try not to make, or set opinions about people that I haven’t had any substantive interaction with. … I think it’s wonderful to have strong female voices out there, but I don’t know her.
– Michelle Obama

I love the First Lady. It’s perfect: no irony, no snark; do not inflate or take the bait; neutralize and move on. Welcome to the adults’ table. (via savingpaper, southpol)

Andy sent me a link to Flattr last week. It’s a service that is setting out to revolutionise how people get paid for online content. I’m always pretty suspicious of any startup that claims they are going to ‘revolutionise’ something, but it’s an interesting idea. These were my initial thoughts:

I love the (generally) uncommercial nature of blogs at the moment, and I …
