Sony Mylo: "Rush Mylo" (0)

Thursday, September 28, 2006 by , under , , , , , , , , ,



















I had never seen nor heard about the Sony Mylo (Mylo stands for My life Online) digital companion until I saw a recent Rush Mylo ad, downloaded from an RSS feed on my PSP.

Just a bit about the product itself: The Sony Mylo is a digital tool that's basically a portable broadband communicator. You can use it to surf the internet, check your emails, IM/chat, make voice calls over the internet, listen to music, check out videos and more. No wires needed - you just get connected through a WiFi spot, and get going. I thought there was an integrated camera in there, but apparently, none yet. Pfff. I don't know why people would get this instead of a Sony PSP, which has tons more features, and is about the same price.

Nevertheless, they have this cool new campaign called "Rush Mylo", obviously targeting the golden demographic, youth 18-25. The campaigns mostly feature viral movies about "thumb students" living crazy episodes depiciting college life. You'll find most of these on YouTube, but here are a few anyway.





Among campaign elements, the RUSH MYLO WEBSITE featuring an interactive campus on which you can go about, and discover the life of a Thumb Student, and of course many of the Mylo features.

















A MOST TRIPPY CAMPAIGN! I love it. Original and complete, noteworthy, talkworthy, with actual movies you can download and view on your Mylo or PSP. Great work from McKinney + Silver, in North Carolina.

Another great example of... TEH FUTURE.

Indeed some very artistic direction on the ads for the International Surfing Museum in Huntington Beach, California -- the third one featuring Duke "The Duke" Kahanamoku, one of the greatest surfing legends in the history of Hawai'i. By Young and Rubicam, Irvine. (Thanks, Advertising/Design Goodness!)
