This advertisement/viral video is just too much fun not to share. Made to promote the newest location of the Westfield shopping centers in Stratford City, East London (that's the significance of the September 13 date at the end), this video does exactly what it promises: it races through a century of ever-changing fashions in clothes, music, and dance, and all without missing a beat. Congratulations to director Jake Lunt & The Viral Factory for putting it together so imaginatively. Bet you watch it more than once!
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
