Bordering on the Emotional: A Look at the Huggies Radio Ad

Image

I heard an ad on the way to work this morning and it was a beauty to be(hear) – pardon the obvious gbagaun there!

Babies are cute – when they aren’t crapping and peeing all over you. Or my personal favorite – when they won’t stop crying – I was told by my grandma that my mum’s secret remedy for any attempts at incessant bawling was a dash of brandy (mum was a Remy Martin kinda gal) to the formula. This is probably why I have a strong affinity for spirits, but not the stomach for beer.

But I digress!

The Ad. Such a beautiful mix of some of the cutest babblings of our younger ones that will just make your heart melt (I am a guy. I love kids. And no, I am not gay!!). And what are the kids saying – thank you!

That’s it. Thank you! From the moment the voice over artiste (a very well spoken gentleman reminiscent of a Sean Connery, but without the Scottish lilt) starts talking about what babies would like to say to their parents, and you hear the first angelic babble in the background, you know you are in for an overload of cuteness. Almost makes you forget the other side of being a baby – REALLY LOUD BAWLING!

So, if you get the chance, catch the ad. It is most likely going to make your morning drive to work a lot more pleasant.

It makes the day more when you hear the final part of the ad – I’ll let you keep that one as your own little surprise.

Enjoy!!!

Why the eff didn’t you watch these TED Talks? The 2013 edition.

Letting off the steam in an inspiring way. I really liked this post.

TED Blog

Perhaps you are looking forward to a new and hopeful 2014; perhaps you see late December as the perfect time for reflection and resolution. I’m pleased to let you off the hook. This is the time when you should look back at your year and focus on the question: What TED Talks did I miss? Lucky for you, the 2013 edition of “Why the eff didn’t you watch these TED Talks?” — which, amazingly, you seemed to like last year — is here. New and hopeful is fine and good, but I’m more in favor of not forgetting the old, the weird, the mystifying, the liminal and the hidden. And so I give you: My favorite 11 under-loved TED Talks of 2013. Be ready to be mildly chastised for missing out on them the first time around.

Lessons in Writing for Web Design

There are some key points, sorta, that I count as compulsory when building content for a website. They are massively essential, no fluff and verbosity required:

  • Think SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
  • Keep your words short and simple
  • Keep the tabs straight forward
  • Always think CTA (Calls To Action)
  • No fluff, no unnecessary add-ons, no tiring repetitions.
  • Remember it’s a website not a blog post
