Grab the Torch http://www.interstateofmind.com/grab-the-torch/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/grab-the-torch/#comments Thu, 02 Aug 2012 13:35:38 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2357 A day before the torch arrived in my part of the world, we went to the local BMW dealership to hold the object itself. Gloves donned, children briefed that if dropped there'd never be any more pocket money.

A day before the torch arrived in my part of the world, we went to the local BMW dealership to hold the object itself. Gloves donned, children briefed that if dropped there’d never be anymore pocket money.

A typically efficient Teutonic experience; chocolate medals given to children, pictures taken, beamed directly to printer and framed plus an image emailed to your inbox all before you could hand the torch to the next person. I must say it’s very light and the only thing that affects it’s beauty is that the holes allow you to see the mini butane canister nestled within.

A nice way of getting as many people as possible involved in the Olympic spirit (oh, and being exposed to the BMW brand…).

Olympic Vermin http://www.interstateofmind.com/olympic-vermin/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/olympic-vermin/#comments Thu, 02 Aug 2012 10:10:14 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2310 This is a great animation called ‘Olympic Vermin’. Here we see some of London’s vermin recreating the Olympic torch relay through the streets of London. It’s a very fun, cheeky take on what is essentially a massive part of the Olympic ceremony.

Created by Amael Isnard and Leo Bridle, and produced by Beakus.
