AdFreak Need a new reason to cry at weddings? Tosando, a Japanese company that offers musical instruments and lessons, is pleased to oblige with this intense, time-tripping tear-jerker. The short film tells the story of a widowed, middle-aged father and his daughter on her wedding day. At the reception, dad sits at the piano and attempts to play Pachelbel's Canon, which opens the floodgates for memories both happy and sad. The flashbacks are a tad disorienting at first, but you'll get the gist. (RocketNews24 has a handy breakdown/translation for those in need.)

HTML 5 Showcase: The Wilderness Downtown  I remember seeing this as it launched last week and was itching to post it, I held back a few days, because I wanted to showcase it as a video so everyone could get the full visual experience (it only works in Chrome browser, so naturally, the demo was built by Google!). This is by far, the most powerful HTML 5 demonstration I’ve seen yet, and it’s pretty easy to see why when you look at the serious javascript at work here… The HTML 5 demo has multiple choreographed windows triggered by music points, interactive bird flocking to your mouse and in time with the music , custom rendered Google maps , perfect real-time compositing over the top of maps, some advanced procedural drawing that delivers velocity influenced tree branches from the mouse and even 3D canvas rendering! So, enough of the nerd stuff, this is bloody amazing, check it out, you’ll be glad you did. Note to everyone. Be Sociable, Share!

Heineken: Guerrilla Marketing Event In Italy  This is a pretty brave guerrilla marketing event by Heineken on the eve of one of the biggest matches you can imagine, Real Madrid vs AC Milan. Now you’re probably thinking it’s something out on the street, taking advantage of all the crazed soccer fans passing by, but you’d be wrong… Heineken decided to stage a fake event at the same time the game was to be played, a mix of classical music meets poetry in an Italian theater. To make this happen, they recruited about 200 people to help get over 1000 people away from their TV’s and into this event, sacrificing the biggest game of the season! Heineken even had the event broadcast live on SkySport, with crosses for interviews of famous sporting celebs to aid in the Authenticity, or infact, leverage some of the people who’d been stung by the stunt!

WebGL Water Loading... Made by Evan Wallace This demo requires a decent graphics card and up-to-date drivers. If you can't run the demo, you can still see it on YouTube. Interactions: RockMelt: The New Social Web Browser  A new web browser called RockMelt launched it’s invitation to beta through a Facebook authentication scheme last week, and to get everyone excited, they kicked off by releasing this demo video that has racked up 500,000 views. Rockmelt aims to become a “Social Browser” by integrating your social life directly into your web browser’s interface to create one seamless experience no matter what website you are viewing. On the left it connects your friends and the right, your social accounts, by loading Facebook and Twitter API apps to give you direct access and one click sharing as if you were inside Facebook or Twitter. My first reaction was thinking it was pretty cool, with decent potential once users work out the new interface features, but the better part of me says unless they can drive big uptake in high school and university students it might fade away just as fast as their video went viral… but there is some huge potential here nevertheless.
