Picture Book

It's been just five-odd years since when I first saw digital photography in action. The sightings were few and far between. It then is to the technology's credit that today, we see it all over the place. Just about everywhere. This fact cannot be better said than how the latest HP ad puts it. Mesmerizing stuff. View commercial here [60 Sec].

That's the director of the spot!

Two things about the commercial keep you riveted to the seat.
* The music ("Picture Book" by the Kinks), and
* The 'fundoo' digital play (the making)

"Apple iTunes has a compilation of 12 songs from TV ads for Diet Coke, Pepsi, C2, Burger King, Six Flags, Revlon, Levi's, iPod & iTunes, Dentyne Ice and CVS." [via]
Commercials, these days, help dust yesteryear classics and create an all new genre. Great for music. Great for fans.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
