Dove ad viewed more than 3 million times on YouTube

Saturday, November 4, 2006

An advertisement for Dove beauty products has been viewed by well over three million people, without ever being on television. A copywriter from Ogilvy Toronto, the advertising agency that created a spot named “evolution”, uploaded the advertisement to video sharing website YouTube.

While the official upload of the ad itself has been viewed 1,119,262 times, there are dozens of copies of the ad on YouTube, adding to a minimum of 3,059,546 views. The official copy of the video is the website’s 12th most viewed this month, 53rd of all time.

Unofficial uploads have each received high levels of viewership, with 449595, 445322, 207906, 201670, 195265, 116501, and 102634 plays.

The agency did not originally intend to upload the video to YouTube, only display it on the company’s homepage. Staff member Tim Piper uploaded it to his account on October 6, about a week before it first got media coverage on Good Morning America.

The ad begins with a woman walking into a photo shoot. From there, she is primped and plucked by hair and makeup artists, then tweaked on a Photoshop-like program. The photo-manipulation is then posted on a billboard for the fictional “Easel Foundation Makeup” brand. Two young, teenage girls walk past, glancing at the board. “No wonder our perception of beauty is distorted” ends the ad in text, “Every girl deserves to feel beautiful just the way she is.”

The creative team for the ad included Tim Piper, Mike Kirkland, Janet Kestin, Nancy Vonk, directors T Piper (treatment and post production) and Yael Staav (live action) from Reginald Pike, Soho post production, Rogue editing, Vapor music, Gabor Jurina and Make-up: Diana Carreiro, and Reginald Pike.

The official French copy of the ad has only received 132 views, although it was only uploaded on November 2, 2006.

  • What To Expect From An Engine Tune Up Service In Forest Lake, Mn

    • Click Here For More Specific Information On:
    • Mad4 Heli

    byadmin

    Engine tune up service in Forest Lake MN commonly includes replacement of spark plugs and wires, replacing the distributor cap, and performing a visual inspection of engine components and related parts. Spark plugs are located on the head of each cylinder, and each is connected to an insulated wire. These parts gradually wear out over time. A computerized diagnostic service also may be performed to identify any problems not easily seen. Depending on the age of the vehicle, the mechanic may adjust the idle speed and ignition timing. This is only necessary on older models since computers automatically control idle and timing on newer cars and trucks.

    Changing the air filter is a good idea if it hasn’t been done recently. Mechanics may recommend changing the fuel filter as well. A clean air filter means better gas mileage and engine performance. Fuel filters block tiny particles of debris in gasoline or diesel fuel that otherwise could get into the engine.

    Although vehicle owners miles. Vehicle owners normally drive for years before getting a tuneup. They may not realize it’s time for a tuneup unless the “check engine” light comes on.

    Pricing for Engine Tune Up Service in Forest Lake MN varies a great deal depending on the vehicle, the quality of spark plugs the owner chooses, and whether any other parts should be replaced. Of course, pricing also varies among garages for the same model and automotive work. Vehicle owners might want to call a few places to learn the cost of a standard tuneup. They should keep in mind, however, that the cheapest price doesn’t always mean the best option.

    Essentially, a tuneup is intended to make an engine run smoother, improve performance, and boost fuel economy. Contact American Imports to schedule the service if it is due or if the vehicle has any symptoms indicating the need for a tuneup.

    Wednesday, May 23, 2018

    On Monday, San Jose, California, US-based software company Adobe Systems announced their plans to acquire California-based e-commerce handling web service Magento Commerce for 1.68 billion US dollars (USD). After Adobe made the announcement via their official website, Adobe’s stocks rose by around one percent, ending Monday extended trading at USD 238.10 per share.

In 2015, Permira bought Magento from eBay, an eCommerce website. Adobe, in their official statement, said, “Magento Commerce Cloud will enable commerce to be seamlessly integrated into the Adobe Experience Cloud”.

    Adobe also announced a buyback of shares worth USD eight billion by 2021. Magento’s CEO Mark Lavelle said, “Adobe and Magento share a vision for the future of digital experiences that brings together Adobe’s strength in content and data with Magento’s open commerce innovation […] We’re excited to join Adobe and believe this will be a great opportunity for our customers, partners and developer community”.

    U.S. TV networks look to past for future programming

    U.S. TV networks look to past for future programming
    Posted in Uncategorized | October 25th, 2020

    Tuesday, March 22, 2005

    Los Angeles, California — Four of six national television broadcast networks recently wooed potential advertisers for the 2005-2006 season with programming offerings in the new development phase. These included NBC, Fox, ABC and The WB. Two other networks, CBS and UPN, plan to preview their offerings March 24.

    After four years of focusing on high-profile reality television, network executives are turning to the past for inspiration on scripted series. Some networks said they are “more consciously aggressive about developing shows” that recall such classics as Taxi and Barney Miller, Craig Erwich, a programming executive for Fox, told USA Today. In the same report, Kevin Reilly, NBC entertainment chief said, “I don’t think the answer has to be that it’s groundbreaking or something you’ve never seen before.”

    But at least one ad buyer had reservations about the rear-view mirror technique. “Every network seems to be looking back rather than forward for programming ideas. The reminiscence factor may be good if you are looking for an older audience, but it may not be a way to bring in the younger audiences,” Laura Caraccioli-Davis, senior vice president and director of Starcom Entertainment told Mediaweek magazine.

    Kansas library discusses Wikipedia
    Posted in Uncategorized | October 22nd, 2020

    Tuesday, February 5, 2008

    This article mentions the Wikimedia Foundation, one of its projects, or people related to it. Wikinews is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.

    A diverse group of approximately 25 people gathered at the Johnson County Library on Monday to participate in reference librarian Scott Vieira’s class, Wikiwhatia? Wikipedia.

    Scott opened the session by sharing a disparaging quote from Robert McHenry (former editor-in-chief of Encyclopedia Britannica) comparing Wikipedia to a public restroom. He then shared a quote from Andrew Keen, author of The Cult of the Amateur, in which he stated Wikipedia is the blind leading the blind. Scott shared Wikipedia usage data from a 2007 Pew Internet study showing 36% of adults have consulted Wikipedia and that that Wikipedia receives 10,000-30,000 searches per second. Scott also pointed out that Wikipedia now has over two million articles in English alone (over nine million articles in 250 languages). So there is a discrepancy here, lots of critics and lots of use.

    Scott then shared some historical information in order to provide a context for understanding Wikipedia. This included some important names and dates in the history of encyclopedias… including Pliny the Elder (23-79 C.E.) who published 37 Volumes of Natural History, and Joachim Sterck van Ringelbergh (c. 1499-1556) who first used the term encyclopedia, and then d’Alembert and Diderot who published 17 volumes of their French Encyclopedia from 1751-1765. Encyclopedia Britannica was first published in Scotland in serial format 1768-1771.

    Scott also discussed more recent history, sharing a photo of Ward Cunningham –who is credited with being the inventor of wiki software. Wikipedia was founded on Jan 15, 2001 by Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales. Sanger left Wikipedia in 2002 and founded Citizendium in 2007 a complementary project which now has 4500 articles.

    After the historical perspective, the class moved into using Wikipedia. Everyone in the audience had used Wikipedia. The class explored the content of Wikipedia, realising there is a whole lot going on. Scott demonstrated that the article about “frogs” for example, is semi-protected. The “history of science” article was examined, including the history of changes. Discussion covered how people contribute, who contributes and edits. The group also talked about Wikipedia bots, which aid in routine tasks in a semi-automated or automated fashion.

    A discussion about teachers, school media specialists and students regarding their use of Wikipedia ensued. Some teachers and school media specialists are negative about Wikipedia, but Scott’s hope is that they will use it to start a discussion about the need to evaluate and critically think about information (even when it’s from more traditionally reviewed and edited sources).

    An unanswered question from an audience member was, “What was the first Wikipedia article?”

    Discussion topics from Scott to audience were as follows:

    • Do you think Wikipedia is less accurate than published resources and how important is that accuracy to you?
    • How do we determine authority on a subject? How important is it that an article be written by an expert? How is Wikipedia changing our idea of what an authority is?
    • Currency – the ability to publish immediately – what are the advantages and what are the disadvantages?
    • What do we think about the content selection in Wikipedia?
    • Should Wikipedia be used by librarians?
    • What do you think about the future of Wikipedia?

    The Gagosian Gallery}

    The Gagosian Gallery

    by

    Alan Friedman

    The Gagosian Gallery is said to be one of the leading contemporary art galleries today. It is owned by Larry Gagosian. Gagosian has made quite a name for himself in the art world. Not only does he have three of his galleries in New York City, but he also has galleries in Los Angeles and a few abroad locations. Gagosian began his gallery in the mid-1980’s. Gagosian brought his gallery from Los Angeles to New York City in 1985. The one main thing his galleries have always stood for is that they maintain important works of contemporary art. They also try to present pieces from the earlier part of the modern era, an aspect that still holds true to this day. In the 1980’s alone, the Gagosian gallery held exhibits that were dedicated to the New York School, as well as exhibits on Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism. This was achieved by showing the early work of artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Willem de Kooning, and Roy Lichtenstein.

    Due to the great success of the first gallery, Gagosian opened a second location in New York. This time, he chose the neighborhood of SoHo. The year was 1991, and SoHo had become the center of the art world. Artists worked hard to turn what used to be the old factory district in Manhattan into large exhibition areas and studio spaces. With more room, Gagosian began showing large-scale pieces by artists like Richard Serra, Mark di Suervo, Chris Burden, and Barnett Newman. As the downtown gallery showed younger international artists such as Cecily Brown, Ellen Gallagher, Douglas Gordon, and Jenny Saville, the uptown gallery was more into showing exhibits of a historically grounded nature. Artists included in this showing were Miro, Moore and Calder. Andy Warhol was a favorite at both gallery locations. The Andy Warhol Foundation and the galleries displayed landmark exhibits like Late Hand Painted Paintings, Rorschach Paintings, Ladies and Gentlemen, Camouflage Paintings, Diamond Dust Shadow Paintings, and Oxidation Paintings.Since historical exhibitions made the Madison Avenue location what it was, they introduced a fifth floor gallery space designed solely for the purpose of focusing on more young and upcoming artists. Old Space New Space debuted in January of 2007. It featured works by Hayley Tompkins and Anselm Reyle. This fifth floor gallery has also since exhibited works by Steven Parrino, Mark Grotjhan, Isa Genzken, Dan Colen, and Dash Snow.In 1999, the SoHo gallery moved to Chelsea. The 25,000 square foot building was completed in September of that year. Gagosian artists were now allowed an even larger space to display their work. Richard Gluckman, the architect behind the Chelsea gallery, was again called on to design another space. This gallery is on West 21st Street, and it opened in October of 2006. Recently, this gallery held a special exhibit on the works of Pablo Picasso. These late works of Picasso, entitiled Mosquertos, was curated by Picasso historian John Richardson. The show had a great turn out, and was an instant success.

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Roethlisberger hospitalized after motorcycle accident
    Posted in Uncategorized | October 19th, 2020

    Monday, June 12, 2006Ben Roethlisberger, starting quarterback for the National Football League‘s Pittsburgh Steelers, has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident Monday at roughly 11:30 a.m. EDT. Early reports indicate he has broken his nose and jaw, but the full extent of his injuries remain unknown. Roethlisberger has already undergone surgery for his nose and mouth. He was riding without a helmet on Second Avenue near the intersection of 10th Street in downtown Pittsburgh when he collided with a silver Chrysler New Yorker, reportedly striking the windshield with his head.

    Backup quarterback Charlie Batch was at the emergency room at Mercy Hospital today, but was unavailable for comment. Steelers head coach Bill Cowher has talked to Ben in the past about riding without a helmet, and retired Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw has spoken out strongly against the habit of riding without a helmet in the past.

    A press conference held around 10:30 p.m. confirmed that Roethlisberger successfully underwent seven hours of surgery, and suffered no serious injuries in the initial accident apart from the broken nose and jaw. Initial reports of knee injuries were overstated. Actual knee injuries were limited to road rash, and do not extend to joint injuries.

    Helicopter crash kills sixteen at NATO base in Afghanistan
    Posted in Uncategorized | October 18th, 2020

    Monday, July 20, 2009

    This article features in a News Brief from Audio Wikinews:

    A civilian helicopter chartered by NATO has crashed while taking off from Kandahar International Airport in Afghanistan, killing sixteen. The Mil Mi-8 did not come under enemy fire.

    The helicopter had been chartered from the Russian company Vertical-T and all the victims were civilians. A NATO statement said that there was no obvious cause for the accident but hostile fire had been ruled out. Emergency responders are on the scene.

    Five other people were wounded in the accident. The airport serves as NATO’s operating base for southern Afghanistan.

    The crash comes just days after another civilian helicopter chartered for military activities crashed near Sangin Airbase in Helmand. The Mil Mi-26 is believed to have been shot down; six Ukrainian civilians onboard and one Afghan girl on the ground were killed in the crash on Tuesday. The helicopter had been taking supplies to a British military base.

    Roads in Afghanistan are often difficult to traverse, so militaries often contract aircraft, especially from Russia, to transport troops and cargo between bases.

    Express Yourself With High Quality Body Jewelry

    Posted in Online Bohemian Fashion | October 15th, 2020

    byadmin

    Body piercings have one purpose, to express your individuality. High quality body jewelry is the best way to show off your piercings and to feel good about how they look. Of course, shopping locally can be limiting when it comes to finding the ideal body jewelry. Most people find it frustrating to shop for this type of jewelry locally, so they turn to the online venue to help them locate the best pieces.

    When Shopping Online

    Shopping online for body jewelry is a great opportunity to have a large selection of jewelry to choose from as long as you shop with a trusted source. You do have to pay attention to where you are shopping to ensure the quality of the jewelry and the consistency of the customer care. When you are shopping online you must shop with:

    • An established company
    • A business that haws built a good reputation
    • A business that provides great customer care

    An established company is a trusted source for shopping for body jewelry. They deal in quality goods and have earned their reputation by providing great customer care.

    Beware

    There are several flags that indicate that you are not necessarily shopping with the best company:

    • Very limited inventory
    • Limited options
    • Long delivery times

    A limited inventory is not a good sign. It typically indicates that you are dealing with a company that is either very new or that does not actually specialize in body jewelry. You want to be sure that you shop with a company that has a wide range of options to choose from. The goal is to find the styles that best express your style. Limited options often mean that you will have to settle for jewelry you do not really want. Bodyjewelry.com is the premiere online source for great jewelry!
