Clever tactic from IKEA Singapore for releasing this haunting Hollywood Blockbuster “The Shining” inspired commercial just before Halloween. The ad has been created by BBH Asia Pacific and is set in an IKEA showroom. The commercial is promoting the fact that IKEA is open for late night shopping until 11pm!
I don’t think pop-up restaurants can ever be overdone. Its a really good way for restauranteurs to suss out a given market and then close shop when they feel fit without the tagline of failure. Pop-ups have also been used a lot by brands for experiential purposes. One of the best recent pop-ups was by LIDL Ireland who created a Secret Garden Restaurant Pop-up all in the name of charity and was revealed in a spectacular fashion on the closing night (see video below). Its an exciting time for marketing as brand adapt new ways of engaging with consumers. The latest
As most of you single readers will know by now Tinder is the default way for people to meet dates these days in cities around the world. Unlike the first wave of dating sites Tinder has always been free but in November they’ll be rolling out their first paid features.

You don’t have to be a huge petrol head or that into bikes to understand that this new machine from Kawasaki is a serious piece of work. The Ninja H2R has an incredible 300 horse power but the best feature is that it has a supercharger which is designed by the same team internally who built jet engines. Sweet mother of jesus!!! Unfortunately they are saying the bike is for the track only at the moment which is probably a good thing given the speeds this will be doing. The Video It tells you how excited people are by this
Storing bottles of beer or soft drinks in a fridge is always a pain in the ass but a super new concept from an entrepreneur on Kickstarter looks like it could change the game. It uses magnets to pull the bottles to the top of the fridge freeing up valuable space for everything else you need to store in there. It is well funded so this will be coming to market soon. We love it.

You wouldn’t expect an airline in North Korea to win any awards when it comes to modernity and these pictures from DPRK360 show that the stereotype you had in your head was probably pretty accurate. They have a bunch on their Facebook page from a recent trip that saw them board the Russian jet that clearly hasn’t had much cosmetic work done in the last couple of decades.
