The Oreo dunk in the dark tweet? Yeah it’s been done. Flash mobs, yeah they’ve been done, “CompanyX Staff is Happy”, oh do fuck off. I like the sentiment of this post. Plan to be reactive to an undefined moment. If you plan for a known moment, everyone else will be doing that too. Being original is quite an original thing to be, in any form of marketing. Move on from a win, let the other weaker crowds copy that idea then and enwrap themselves in mediocrity.

Want to do this. Kayaking from day into night in West Cork.

Stripe and subtle animations on a shopping cart page. Love it.
