I think i saw this on daily planet like 6 years ago......... way to resurrect a dead idea and paste your name on it

concept already used for road safety in a couple of countries to warn sleepy drivers. good but doesn't bring singularity to the product

they put grooves in the road yes... but i doubt they put them in musical sequence, but if i was falling asleep at the wheel and "Livin La VIDA Loca" started vibrating through my car, i would wake the hell up.

"Already used"? So that means Sony Bravia's Balls concept was already used because my little brother also used to bounce balls down the staircase when we were kids. Please... Our job is to give meaning to the mundane.

For what it's worth, i think this spot is really original and interesting. Liked it a lot!

Very nice USE of an idea. The video where the guys supposedly had the insight though is a
real joke. Come on guys, it's the same thing that was done in japan 2 years ago:

Anyway, it is a great use, still nice.

damn you're right. and this is A LOT better. using the psychological effect you can't stand when the song is too fast is just amazing

Thanks for sharing!
