…Trek’s District gives you the belt?

Trek District

Bicycles with belt drives used to be a boutique only feature just a few years ago, but as more and more people seek an alternative to automotive transportation, more and more bike companies are looking for ways to make the bike more consumer friendly.

Unlike a chain, belt drives keep you pant cuffs clean and your ride quiet, but they also can’t be repaired as easily or as on the spot as a chain can, and the price is also somewhat prohibitive.

…Guinness is great for dominoes?


Guinness harnessed the power of the Rube Goldberg style dominoes chain for their latest commercial, and the results are rather impressive.

It apparently took an entire week to film, with some sequences requiring up to 15 reshoots, so I can only imagine the dedication that these dominoes builders displayed. I’d say it was worth it though:

…The Human Flipbook loves sandwiches?

Human Flipbook

Erbert & Gerbert’s Subs & Clubs (a growing chain of sandwich shops based in the Midwest) wanted an innovative way of advertising on TV.

What they came up with is the Human Flipbook, a stop-motion animation that uses 150 shirts to tell the story of a hungry boy who is trying to find a sandwich.

It’s definitely innovative, and actually entertaining, so check it out:
