Here’s the latest in a series of witty virals from Stella Artois, promoting their new enviro-friendly lighter packaging, helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
The video looks back to the quaint days of 1963 when a cross between a cow (vache) and a horse (cheval) was reared at a farm just outside Leuven, Belgium.
The Vacheval was born.
We’re particularly keen on the beast’s croissant based navigation system. But we’re frustrated not to know whether the Vacheval moos or neighs. Or is that mooghs.
A TV report from Belgique Television back in the 1960′s introduces a strange new animal – the Vacheval. A cross between a horse and a cow, it was reared in an attempt to create CO2 reducing transport system.
Shot in 1963, this is previously unseen report footage from Belgique Television. It tells the story of a strange animal called a Vacheval. Reared on a farm just outside Leuven in Belgium, it was a cross between a cow and a horse and was reared as a new form of CO2 reducing transportation.
Alain du Monde, an eco extraordinaire who worked for Belgique Television at that time, recalls the Vacheval; “The Vacheval were magnifique, they were not only eco but they were chic too, those behind the Vacheval were clearly visionary in recognising the future environmental issues facing man-kind” he says.
No one knows whether they actually exist today. There are rumours they all now live on a special retreat in the Alps, whilst some say they fled Europe in search of work. With little records of their existence, who knows what actually happened to the Vacheval?
Here’s a viral ad for new talent showcase website showme.tv.
Sadly, we not very good at burping so will have to conjour up another party trick if we’re to be in with a chance of scooping the cash…
Expandable viral promoting The Guardian’s coverage of the FIFA 2010 tournament.
As England now face the Germans in the next round and possibly Argentina after that in the quarter finals, you may want to look away.

In preparation for this afternoon’s England vs Slovenia World Cup match, here’s hoping we’ll be celebrating like these guys later on.
Update: 24 June 20101 – Sadly this one has been pulled from YouTube by its creator
Teenage age son owned by his Vuvuzela toting father.
This is a superb one-minute homage to multi-Oscar winner Forrest Gump shot by Will Tribble.
The video has had close on to 3 million hits on YouTube making it one of the most seen viral hits of last year.
Strange then that Jemma Lyon a student from Liverpool’s John Moores University should take it upon herself to produce a sub-standard line-by-line remake of Tribble’s work and enter it in a Nokia video competition. Guess what? She only went and won and travelled to Cannes this week to pick up her prize money and video making kit prizes at the Lions Advertising Festival.
Luckily Tribble became aware of the rip-off and posted this plea for help on b3ta.com. Within 24 hours he’d received an apology from both Nokia and Mofilms and an invitation to the London Film Festival to show his film.
Ms Lyon? She was stripped of her prize and sent back to Britain, no doubt to face the wrath of her tutors.
Viral Video for Stella Artois
Not bad for a valley girl from Abergavenny.
The first music video in history, featuring Marina & The Diamonds and floating moustaches.
Marina and the Diamonds released her first LP, The Family Jewels (679 Recordings) early in 2010. She comes from a Greek/Welsh background and was born in Abergavenny, and was nominated for the critics’ award at this year’s BRITS.
Le CO2eux Soireé is a four part variety show created to launch Stella Artois’ new lightweight bottle, which contains less glass and therefore produces less CO2 emissions.
A follow-up to last years’ Recyclage de Luxe Show (see notes below), the CO2eux Soireé is also inspired by 1960s television programmes and is aired ‘live’ from inside the new bottle. Broadcast directly from 1963, the show features the ‘first ever music video’ – of Marina and the Diamonds’ hit single I Am Not a Robot – alongside a live set from The Mystery Jets, performing their yet to be released single Dreaming of Another World.
The show has been created by creative agency Mother and is supported with press and outdoor activity as well as an on-pack promotion. All four episodes will be available to view at www.facebook.com/co2euxsoiree
Viral Video for Mazda’s MX-5
We’ve always had a soft spot for the MX-5. It’s a fuss free Lotus Elan inspired roadster, with none of the pretensions of an over priced supercar. Probably more fun to drive too. One day…
The Mazda MX-5. Once driven, thrills are harder to find.
Condor Hang Gliding in the Andes, somersaulting from the nose of a 40 ton whale and racing your friends in a buffalo stampede are examples of the lengths MX-5 drivers have to go to find comparable thrills.
Once you’ve experienced the heart-racing excitement and wind-in-your-hair exhilaration of the agile Mazda MX-5 roadster you’ll understand.

This cute little baby gorilla needs a bit more practice to enter the big daddy world of King Kong.
Ok, this one’s really old but we’ve just come across it and it made us laugh. A lot.
Frankly, my horsey missus would be appalled at someone walking under their steed, so this rider deserves a bit of shit-happens.
