Psychic Lying Vending Machines of 2015

Monday, July 10th, 2006

James tipped me off to iDA’s iN2015 IT Masterplan. It a vision and roadmap to Singapore’s IT-laden future. In fact, it is quite realistic and very imaginable. I love iDA’s ad campaigns; don’t know about you but I find them really funny.

I think they can stretch our imagination further. Let me help them out…

The original (To see the actual thing, go to http://www.in2015.sg/experience.html and mouse over “3.00pm”) :

iDA iN2015

My version:

iDA iN2015 spoof

If you can’t read it, here’s what it said:

The TCM knowledge-empowered vending machine senses his sore throat and knows that chocolate is too heaty for him. So, it temporarily displays “Unavailble – try again tomorrow” under the Choc Chip flavour. David thought, “It’s 2015 for God’s sake! You’d think they would’ve triggered the re-order level days ago and had it replenished by now.”

Scene from Mike and Mal's remake of 'When Harry Met Sally'

This is really funny… 2 aussie blokes remade scenes from “Blues Brothers” (here) and “When Harry Met Sally” (the fake O scene).
Good thing for them, they’ve got Quickflix (Aussie’s equivalent of Netflix.com) and Intel Viiv to sponsor them.

Sneaking past AQIS

Received this in the letter box yesterday – a packet of seeds from NeuStar for the May Diversity Inclusion Celebration… so nonchalantly sneaking past AQIS.
