Tour the Hot Spots of Melbourne Live with Remote Control Tourist

Melbourne - Remote Control Tourist

Melbourne is a popular destination for tourists, but travelling to the city located on the south west cost of Australia can be an expensive proposition from this part of the world.

Thanks to Remote Control Tourist, an interactive project from Tourism Victoria, you can save a few bucks and still get a live first-person view of the city’s hot spots.

For 8 hours a day from October 9 to 13, Remote Control Tourist will enable voyeuristic tourists from around the world to view live streaming video from the head-mounted cameras of the two person team. Viewers can switch between the two camera views, track the camera-wearers on Google Maps and offer suggestions to where the subjects should go next.

The project was created by ad agency Clemenger BBDO, Exit Films, and Tool director Jason Zada, famous for his 2011 viral sensation ‘Take This Lollipop‘.

American Red Cross Promote Online Course With “Misadventures in Babysitting” Clip

American Red Cross - Babysitting

The American Red Cross’ Babysitting Basics online course costs just $25 and takes around 4 hours to complete, and it’s designed to help young people to become more responsible babysitters. The teens featured in this clip obviously never came anywhere near the course the course, and their logic is enough to give worried parents something to “really” worry about.

From nail gun etiquette, to fire safety, to how to be a food scientist (imagine that, peanut butter does come from from peanuts), the clip covers just a few of parent’s worst nightmares when dealing with inexperienced babysitters.

The ad was created by BBDO Atlanta, directed by Erich Joiner for Tool of North America.
