Ad agency Brothers and Sisters has created a rather nice self-promotional film and website – think YouTube in cardboard

The site faithfully recreates the look and feel of YouTube using a hand-drawn aesthetic while a film talks about how things have changed now that we have social media and all that stuff. Have a look here.

Certainly way better than PHD's recent car crash of a film (below) in similar vein: check out the ensuing 'debate' as PHD attempts to defend/justify/apologise for it all here.



Fantastic! we are always fan of the electronic aestetic turned "analogic" , but this is a lot more! ace!

Good to see that the person who built it used a free template / tutorial from Lee Brimelow. I wonder how much they charged for it.

Neither video says anything new, but one is well judged and the other is a shocker.
