Colourful advert

The new Bravia colourful advert is there.

Do you remember Sony Bravia 2005's colourful advert featuring thousands of balls rolling down a San Fransisco block with delighting indie music? The music was Hearbeat by José González and the balls were for real. This year, Bravia's advert shows fireworks, but instead of fire we see paint, thus giving us paintwork... er... yeah. The ad is once again colourful, to promote Bravia's colourful capacities. Check out the Behind the scenes video. (btw: What's the classical piece? I can't put my finger on it)


One EU parliament seat

It cost approximately 200 millions euros a year to move the Parliament between Brussels and Strasbourg. That's a crazy amount of money thrown out of the window to please a French president who's been buried a long time ago. Objectively the EU parliament should have just one seat. Subjectively I'd say it should be in Brussels since it is already the seat of the Commission and the de facto capital of the EU.

In any case, if you happen to be a EU citizen, click at and let other EU citizens know about the issue. Those 200 millions per year could be used for better purposes like education, integration, immigration, medicine, reduction of the debt of poor countries or science.
