Technology Made Us Human

 

Humanity […] is an extruder of technological material. We take in matter that has a low degree of organization; we put it through mental filters, and we extrude jewelry, gospels, space shuttles. This is what we do. -Terence McKenna

 

Bet this Christmas ad would be 2015’s big hit

3-and-a-half minutes worth spending on. This Pixar-like animation would certainly give you goosebumps. Meet Justino, a security guard who works the graveyard shift in a mannequin factory.

Not much of a surprise is the ending. But the way the story was told is pretty amazing.

The holiday season in Spain unofficially kicks off with the much-anticipated annual ad for the Christmas lottery. A national tradition since 1812, the Christmas lottery is more of a group affair than other lotteries—it’s traditional for people to share the winnings by buying shared tickets with colleagues, friends and family.

Leo Burnett Madrid together with The Spanish Lottery definitely have their Brit counterparts on their toes this Christmas.

There’s no bigger prize than sharing.

So Droga5 and Scion teamed up to bring you Weird, Right? and yes, it is… weird… right?
