A brand’s story is no longer just an ad, or a book, or a film; it can be just about anything, and live anywhere. From product design, to packaging, to advertising and beyond, everything tells a story about a brand. And these stories are living, evolving, fluid entities that we can interact with at all touchpoints – across mediums and devices, ads and apps, in both physical and digital worlds.

Watch the video – it was very cute.  Watch it again – and see what changes in the second watching.  Here’s some local screen grabs from my viewing:  They won’t be the same for you.

The film ends with a screen full of mini website video images – I think this may be the long list of source files that the team coded to match the voice-over, such as “robots” – that showed two different sequences to me.

so I’m guessing there’s a database of content and it randomly selects one for each switch-point for your viewing.  The early opener with a grey sky and the name of my local city and the air temperature, was nicely done [but I didn’t really need Google to tell me the weather today – I’m living it, thanks].


Can you see uses for this?  Will brand ‘relevance’ increase as a result?  Or will customer communications just get a little smarter and MUCH more costly to execute?AUCKLAND
