For the first time ever, Google has posted dozens of rare photographs inside and around its data centers — a mind-boggling look at the real stuff that drives this amorphous thing we call the internet. Take more of the visual tour here.
If you do some digging, you'll find that this campaign just keeps getting stranger. Back at Super Bowl time, Will Ferrell did an Old Milwaukee ad that only appeared in North Platte, Nebraska — but then got picked up in large form across the internet. Now, four new commercials have been released in a very odd format, as if they were video-recorded off a television. Supposedly, they're running in Sweden, where — according to a comment on this Slate post — the beer is not even sold. Are we being played by a sophisticated marketer with a secret new formula for viral success?
If you're not old enough to remember this iconic Economist campaign, do yourself a favor and check out the writing in these 10 limited edition prints. Then order a few, hang them in your cube, and have something to shoot for.
Each print is hand printed using silk screen onto 280 GSM archival paper and numbered individually in pencil. Finished with a hand-made wooden frame, each one will be available in a limited edition of only 250.
These are so awesome - and of course you can find them on Etsy. You can get all 4 of the 13"x13" prints for just $100. They're also buttons for sale if you're more into wearing Wes than displaying his work on your wall.
