Fantasy Football Meets Super Bowl Commercials

If you love Super Bowl ads more than the game itself, then you're going to want to try your hand at Fantasy Brands. This online game asks you to choose five brands that will show the most popular spots during this year's big game. In true fantasy football fashion, there is a salary cap to make it more interesting. There are even bonus points for taking the over-under on the number of hashtags in ads and similar superfluous statistics. Go advertising!

the MunNY exhibit 2010

On Saturday, May 15th, twenty-three of NYC's best-known industrial designers came together for a one night only event: the MunNY exhibit. Held at the Ace Hotel's Liberty Hall, this exhibit challenged each designer to create a unique interpretation of KidRobot's iconic MUNNY figure. This site documents both the evening and each designer's studio & influences through a 360 degree experience centering on MUNNY. Take a spin through each designer's studio, filled with the things that inspires them and their own work. View videos and photos of their unique points of view. Then explore each designers' interpretation of MUNNY, including 360 degree and 3D photography, designer statements and downloads. Best of all, each MUNNY is being auctioned on eBay to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation. Designers include: Vladimir Kagan, Karim Rashid, David Weeks, Joe Doucet, Stephen Burks, Marc Thorpe, Brad Ascalon, Matthew Bradshaw & Sergio Silva, Rich Brilliant Willing, Richard Shemtov, Marcus Tremonto, Manuel Saez, Dror Benshetrit, Lindsey Adelman, Harry Allen, Tobias Wong & Various Projects, Josee LePage, Sebastian Errazuriz, Todd Bracher, Jeffrey Bernett, Jason Miller, Jeff Miller, & Frederick McSwain.
