& The lirycs:

Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

It doesn’t show signs of stopping,
And I’ve bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But if you’ll really hold me tight,
All the way home I’ll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we’re still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

‘Dullux Walls’

El sueco Adam Berg (que ya nos asombró con el anuncio en bullet-time del Phillips Cinema 21:9) ha realizado este spot para la marca de pinturas Dullux, registrando el trabajo de decenas de voluntarios embellecedores de su entorno en Londres, París, Río de Janeiro y Jodhpur, India. La música elegida es de Jonsi (Go Do).

Flash mobs

Have you ever been in this situation? You are in the street, or in the park, or in a shop centre… Suddenly you find yourself surrounded by lots of people wearing weird clothes (everybody the same kind of weird clothes) who are gathered together, do something unusual for a few minutes and then quickly disperse.

If so, you have witnessed a flash mob. People use emails, text messages or other social media to organize these gatherings, and the reasons for them are very varied: protesting against a rule, campaigning in favour of someone, attracting people’s attention onto a particular situation…or just for fun.

One example of flash mobs are the ‘silent discos’, where every person takes their own music device and earphones and dances to their music for a while.

Here is a flash mob in San Francisco, in August 2009:

This new trend has been largely reflected in publicity. Watch these two advertisements:  Flash dance  for mobile telephones. Don’t  miss them, they are great!

Or this one: 100 Beyoncées for a chewing gum:

And now , look at the making of  the flash dance at Liverpool street Station:

Cool, isn’t it?
