Sony’s long awaited second Bravia ad is now available to view on the official campaign website. Having just watched it through, I can’t say I was impressed with it as much as I was with the ‘Balls’ ad. It’s still head and shoulders above most ad campaigns though, and you’ve got to appreciate the amount of work that’s gone into making this

Last year we saw him breakdancing, this year for BBC Children in Need we get Terry Wogan limbering up for a wrestling match. Who’d have thought he was in such good shape?!

So the latest phase of The Lost Experience has come to an end; all 70 codes have been gathered, and the correct sequence has been found. We now know the significance of The Numbers, and I think it provides very strong clues as to why Hurley’s fellow inmate at the asylum would repeat the numbers over and over. If he was involved in the project discussed in the video above, it’s no wonder he went insane!

Blink and you’ll miss it.

To be honest, since I’m in the UK, I’m not as interested in when this premieres on ABC as I am in when it’ll premiere on BitTorrent ­čśë

Sony have very cannily started building up anticipation for the next Bravia ad campaign by posting info on the production here. Well it works for me – I’m really looking forward to seeing the ad, directed by Jonathan Glazer. Judging by the image above, it looks like it’s set in a slightly less glamorous location than the “Balls” ad. That definitely isn’t San Francisco

Hanso Exposed July 26, 2006

The third phase of The Lost Experience has been launched online at hansoexposed.com. It’s based around a simple video editing system; to unlock video clips for use in your video sequence you need to find code fragments, which can be found within various websites, blogs and podcasts. It’s all very esoteric and the site doesn’t give much away – yet. Apparently once all 70(!) code fragments have been found and the video clips have been arranged in the correct order, the significance of The Numbers will be revealed

Top of the Pops is dead – long live Top of the Pops June 21, 2006

So the BBC have finally done it. They've finally achieved what they've been working so hard towards and killed off Top of the Pops. Did they really think that moving it to BBC2 on a Sunday night (and then occasionally sticking it on a different night without announcing it just to keep viewers on their toes) was actually going to improve ratings?! It seems as though they've been doing everything they possibly can to kill TOTP off for good, and now they've succeeded. Nice one, dickheads
