Americans: take the high road or burn America to the ground?
Directing a Harlem Shake
When you email various co-workers and ask them to “spread the word” about the company’s Harlem Shake video, it doesn’t always result in 50 or so people showing up like you would like/expect… instead, you end up with this video!
I’m glad people showed up. I’m kinda sad I had to direct and run the camera, so I’m only in half of it. But that kind of adds to the charm. Anyway, I’ll be posting more frequently starting this weekend, so hopefully this video will hold you over until then. Enjoy!
Holiday Shopping False Advertising
Need a last-minute stocking stuffer? How about you buy a 40″ LED TV? AND PUT IT IN A STOCKING:
Seriously… it’s like advertisers don’t even care anymore. Soon, communication is going to deteriorate into just using buzzwords all the time. Now excuse me while I blog my app to curate something viral on social media… Google.
How to prevent Instagram from selling your photos
Hey everyone freaking out about Instagram being able to sell your photos: just download an app that adds a watermark to your photos. Photos with watermarks will be completely useless to Instagram and thus will not be sold. Problem solved.
There are apps that will cost you just $2 on Android and iOS, and a free iOS app as well.
Want to add watermarks to several photos on your computer, then put them back on your phone before uploading? Here are a few programs that should work as well.
Or if you really want to be tacky, you could just Photoshop something like this:
And sure, that example looks like garbage, but it took me about 30 seconds to do in Photoshop (just create a new text layer with an opacity of 10% and write whatever you want, obviously).
Everyone cool now? Can we move on and stop worrying that Facebook and Instagram will steal our souls and sell them for profit?
Of course, Instagram COULD still sell your photos despite the watermark, but who’d want to buy them? Feel free to leave a comment to discuss.
