Absolut Vodka: Absolut Purity

Since December 14th ABSOLUT Vodka has taken over one of Avenue de l’Opéra’s bus shelters in Paris, giving Parisians the chance to appreciate a poster of extreme purity. This unique poster, created from just one sheet of blank paper by artist Simon Schubert, embodies purity to the extreme. Portraying the limited edition multi-sided bottle released at the end of the year, this creation was made without ink or chlorine, on 100 % cellulose paper, and formed only from folds revealed by a play on light and shadows.

Samsung Galaxy S II Vs Apple iPhone 4s : The next big thing

Go Samsung! I love how this video mocks Apple fanboys who waited for hours to get the "new" iPhone 4s. Samsung is taking a direct shot at Apple with this great spot and it's already going viral. Lines like "I could never get a Samsung, I’m creative.”, "Why would they be leaving when we are only nine hours away." and "Can I see it with my hands?" are like stabs. Once again, I have to say, go Samsung! I'm waiting for Apple's reply.
