Wanna play with my snake?

If you have owned a Nokia phone on the last 15 years it would be practically impossible you don’t remember this classic game included on it: Snake.

That’s the concept for the newest N-Gage Nokia campaign, which includes a funny TV spot with the merit of not use any computer animations and other modern resources. Based on an impeccable, almost handmade, production and stop motion technique.



But the funniest thing is the website, that gobbles you up with captivating music – that in my personal experience translated myself to those never ending afternoons in front of my Atari console.

This doesn't sell you any particular product, but the video game experience taken beyond. So, let’s get out and play!

A thing that has really shocked me while walking on Helsinki streets has been the amount of cabriolet version cars. I remember over the Mediterranean coast whether being in Spain, France or Italy, convertible cars are a constant.

But why in the hell should you buy a car which main characteristic and benefit can be enjoyed only very few days a year? OK. There have been some extraordinary electric-blue-sky sunny days during the last two months. But hardly someone will dare to open his car’s roof when outside maximum is 2º C.

Considering the length of winter, which effects are pretty extended in these latitudes, beginning in late September embracing autumn and going over a practically inexistent spring. The truly warm days – if we can call them like that since it is not guaranteed you will be able to wear t-shirt all day long – go from mid May to end of August on a good year. But you cannot count on it, since weather in Finland is totally unpredictable; you could find yourself using your roofless car only few days in June.

Does it worth? As far as I can see on the streets, it seems yes. The experience of rolling around on a convertible, feeling that sun only shines for you, acquires a fashionable new dimension on Scandinavian roads. Nourishing your lungs with impeccable forest’s essences or delighting your eyes with awesome starry...
