DVDs that smell like pizza when played

Here’s an interesting campaign by a A Brazilian ad agency and Domino’s Pizza. The company worked with 10 video rental stores in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to stamp heat sensitive thermal ink and flavored varnish on rented DVDs. So while people are watching the movie, the heat of the DVD player will activate the thermal ink and flavored varnish. When the movie ended, the viewers will smell pizza and see a pizza advertisement on the DVD when they eject the disc.

Damn cool idea!

Except there are 2 little problems. Most people usually snack while watching movies. So they’ll most likely be too full to order a pizza after the movies. Besides who eats pizza after a movie? Everyone eat pizza while watching movies.

And who still rent DVDs nowadays? OK, maybe they still do in Brazil. But not for long.

3 epic years….

Today is my 3rd anniversary in my company. Wow….. time flies.

A lot has changed since I joined the company. 3 years ago, nobody would believe the company would do some of the things we are doing now. The task is challenging but I’m fortunate to be working with an amazing team.

Cheers to the 3 epic years….

This is no easy task. Imagine staying awake for 54 hours, watching movie while sitting on the floor. Follow by 18 hours of dancing and 18 hours of computer games. I wonder how many teams can last the entire 54 hours. If you are nearby, do pop by Jurong Point to cheer the participants. The mall will be open throughout the 54 hours.
