I don't quite remember how I stumbled on this image this morning, but it's one of a series of three images created by Rethink, a Canadian ad agency, for the Vancouver-based Sparrow Guitar company. If the design company's information page is to be believed, "in 2009, more Guitar Hero guitars were sold than actual ones." That's a pretty scary claim, but I don't know if I believe it... whatever the case, it's a pretty solid ad campaign in my eyes!

According to the website, members of Pride Tiger and You Say Party are using Sparrow guitars.

Nothing like a silly bet with a friend to get a website going, eh? It seems that Norwegian Ola was bet by his friend Jorgen that he couldn't collect one million giraffes; seems Jorgen was wrong. Ola did collect them (and seems to still be collecting them) on-line.

Unlike the (original) Million Dollar Homepage, which also started out as something of a word-of-mouth internet phenomenom, this project was done for fun, not financial gain. That said, considering that the MDH was created back in 2005 -- before the days of Facebook, Twitter and the like -- it's still quite the accomplishment.

Any how, I just thought this was a fun, bright, playful site to feature here. An example of positive crowd-sourcing at it's best. So, if you like giraffes, go check it out!
