Playstation have created an installation that challenges people to insert their fingers into a machine that shock them, as a stunt to promote the new ‘inFAMOUS: Second Son’ game. People step right up, insert their fingers into the holes in the machine, before it charges up and starts increasing the shock over 5 long seconds… If you make it all the way, you win the new game! Great stunt for Playstation Belgium, but not many YouTube views… Created by TBWA. (Thanks Rindert)

Posted on: July 29th, 2011By: Allen Adamson I’m not sure whether or not McDonald’s is trying to change its brand image to become known as the healthier fast-food place but, if so, one action is not going to do it. Read my latest column on and you’ll discover, as all good companies know, that branding is a marathon event, not a lap or two at a time.

A Word from the Author 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!).
