This week was a banner day for Jason Zada. He's the director behind the hottest viral video of the week. Jason has worked with top shops like W+K, Crispin Porter Bogusky, Leo Burnett, Cutwater and Saatchi & Saatchi. TakeThisLollipop.com is a powerful, and yes, creepy video that exploits the privacy permissions you give up when you give Facebook access to your personal information.
It was covered on CNN, Time Magazine, and around the world. When you click yes to the access and login with your facebook account, you see your photo, your status updates and even photos from your photo albums. If you would rather NOT give up your privacy information, feel free to view the experience courtesy of mine.
Freaky isn't it? To turn the dial down a notch or two, the next viral is just plain clever. Seeing as how it's done for Google analytics out of the UK, you would have to call it "brilliant".
That's it for this week. Comments, suggestions for future blogs?... don't keep 'em all to yourself. Please share, and I promise to do the same.
Have a great weekend.
