How Pinteresting

Pinterest has taken social media by storm in the past months, gaining more users than Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube combined. The website based on digital curation has attracted a mostly female demographic, pinning items such as recipes as well as wedding and fashion ideas. Pinterest is still invite only for its members, making the site even more captivating for those not yet ‘pinning’.

The question now is: how will brands start using Pinterest? With a higher percent of  female over male users, Pinterest is not the right media for every brand. Some brands, such as Whole Foods and Nordstrom, have already created their own ‘pinboards’ to promote their brands. It will be interesting to see how brands will start using this new social media.

Here’s a Pinteresting infographic created by full service agency, Modea, using comScore statistics.

Does this awkward-yet-determined rapper in the polo look familiar? He should. That’s a 19-year-old Kanye West, performing at the Double Door back in the day. Always cool to see a local legend early in his career.

Seeing Kanye pre-superstardom is pretty amazing no? 

Mini Cooper has been doing come pretty awesome things lately.  This is super cool.

Video infographics the new trend?

Benetton is going for shock value in its latest ad push, which shows major world leaders, including Barack Obama, Hu Jintao and Benjamin Netanyahu, kissing. And not just any old peck. It’s a full head-tilted, eyes-closed sort of deep smooching. Agency is the Italian Fabrica, in partnership with MDC Partners’ 72andSunny.

The ads will run in select print magazines and are also part of an outdoor campaign. There is also a “KISS WALL” where people can upload pictures of themselves kissing and a short filmabout spreading love, not hate.

Next time you need to hide your tattoo, consider DermaBlend. The brand, owned by L’Oréal, hired artist and model Rick Genest ‘Zombie Boy’ to star in their new spot. Genest is probably best known for his appearance in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way music video. The DermaBlend spot shows how the product can conceal anything.
