Hyundai’s Cure Crampomitosis Campaign

For decades, we have been insidiously and systematically programmed to think that compact cars are better than they are and that they can’t improve any more. Hyundai decided to change that!

Hyundai gets creative!

Hyundai gets creative!

Campaign Idea & Objectives:

“Millions of compact car drivers are fighting against leg-buckling Crampomitosis, caused by a chronic lack of leg room. These choice-starved people have knees riddled with teeth marks, toes pointing in impossible directions, and seemingly no choice when it comes to a comfortable car to drive”. Hyundai

It is essential to mention here that Crampomitosis is a made up condition that Hyundai have invented to help call attention to their Social Good Imitative.

Hyundai is donating $0.50 to Americans for the Arts for each person that joins their Facebook Causes page up to a max of $25,000 but they will also match every $1 donation with another dollar again unto a max of 25k.

Quirky News of the Web — January 2011 #want1million #imafish

There are always smaller headlines that tend to go unnoticed. They are the headlines that let us know how individualistic and unique some of the interactions on the web can be, and how much social media is shaping our world in ways that we could not have fathomed 20 years ago.

Therefore, the Quirky News of the Web section will be dedicated to those pieces of news that might go unnoticed but still pack quite the punch.

Want To Earn 1$ Million? Just Ask For It!

Craig Rowan, some of you might recognize him from his “College Humor” videos, had a simple request of the internet and he had posted it a few weeks back:

A simple straight forward request to give him a million dollars, and not for any grand project or anything, just because you are able to. Lo and behold he was successful; a mysterious Benjamin contacted him and sent him a notarized obligation to provide him with 1$ million on February 2nd at the NYC Comedy Theater. Now, expect to see a flood of people asking for money and starting a new trend of people asking for change online.

Feeling Lonely? Why Not Rent a Friend?

Do you want Michael to be your friend?

This evolution of moving into more personal and more private interaction would have realistically ceased at the level of friends and family, but what about those who don't have their friends and family immediately available to them?
