I don’t know what he is singing about and I don’t care. The video is brilliant and the song makes me smile.
I am totally impressed with Bing, Microsoft’s attempt to get back into the search game, and its not just because of the plethora of results of my vanity search – I finally beat out the Erin Norton who makes jewelry.
Bing’s spin is that its a “Decision Engine” so they’ve organized and categorized the results to help you make decisions. I highly recommend testing out an image search (limitless scroll bar!), a restaurant search (check out the left hand options!) and a travel search (they graph out ticket prices!). For some more capabilities check out this video -
However, I’m really very disappointed by the display ads. These are just crap – so far I’ve only seen them on tech heavy/early adopter web sites – show me some flights to SFO, comparison shopping a new tech gadget an image search for some nerdy movie if you’re going with the early adopters.
Creepy guy in mirror, woman giving me evil eye surrounded by photos and crappy stock “I can do it” photo = what is this ad for again? Erectile dysfunction? Anti-depressants? It’s so generic, no defined personality and totally lame.
I highly recommend reading more about this article from ReadWriteWeb – Search 2.0 vs. Traditional Search.

There are some great TV spots out in rotation right now – here are my top 5 (in no particular order)
Check them out after the jump
Taking something lame and making it cool again is the ultimate re-branding. A major crisis is difficult to come back from, but it happens all the time; coming back from the depths lameness is a rare phenomena. Which is why I applaud you Happy Cow.
Fanny Packs are for the 80s costume parties, older tourists, Hulk Hogan and people who wear socks with their sandals. But you Happy Cow, have decided to make them cool again as “Side Bags” and “Hip Bags”. Tricky.
Not only did you change their name, you’ve also changed up the look of the fanny packs on your website.
By far my favorite is the pocket skirt, because why would I want to ruin the look of my pants with bulging pockets or an unsightly purse when I can cover them with a skirt with one tiny little pocket.
Please, please, please make an infomercial…I can only imagine how incredibly awesome it would be. Ok back to figuring out how these “pockets” work on all my pants. Ugh I wish I could afford your innovative “waist pouch”.
My favorite kind of advertising innovation, taking something tradtional and boring (print) and making it interactive and able to live on its on.
Well done Saxso Funny! This interactive singage says all images have a sound. Umm can you say brilliant!?
Hi my name is Erin and I’m a Googleaholic.
I hate to give up my secret, but I pretty much Google everything.
Any questions, random thoughts, names of people I meet, seriously everything. Unfortunately, as everyone thinks I’m super brilliant (thanks to Google) they come to me with all of their questions. Now I don’t mind being the smarty pants, but really if you don’t know how to find out answers to simple questions then the rest of your life will be extremely difficult.
So for those people who ask the annoyingly simple questions I can now find their answers with Let Me Google That For You. Check it out for yourself. The site creates a URL (or a tiny URl if you want to be sneaky) of you typing in the search term. So when someone asks you “Hey when is Talk Like A Pirate Day” you can send them here. Arrgg
