The hardest karaoke song in the world

Iceland has recently launched a new tourism campaign which via a catchy karaoke song called "The A-Ö of Iceland", challenges tourists to get to grips with its notoriously difficult-to-learn language. Working through the 32 letters of the Icelandic alphabet, the song covers common words and phrases in the language.

Performed by Icelandic comedian Steindi Jr, the song, The A-Ö of Iceland, helps teach the difference between a torfbær (turf house) and a bílaleigubíll (hire car) and why you should always remember to take your sundskýla (trunks) to the sundlaugar (swimming pool).

The Iceland tourist board has also released the below video of tourists attempting to sing along...

Most people think that memory loss, one of the main symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, only affects those in late life. But the disease can actually affect people as young as 40. There are over 40,000 people under 65 living with dementia in the UK.

Qantas Out Of Office Travelogue

Qantas, Australia's national airline, wanted to find a new way to inspire travel within its increasingly younger audience.

Their research showed that tips from friends and colleagues were the highest driver for people choosing their next holiday. So they developed "The Qantas Out of Office Travelogue", a unique out of office reply powered by the users Instagram photos.

This unique use of Instagram's API, transformed mundane out of office emails into a personalised Travelogue that inspired travel, and incentivised recipients to book flights directly from the email.

As a result, users created over 10,000 Out of Office Travelogues which in turn generated 100 million media impressions (worldwide) for Qantas.

Coca-Cola creates first ever “drinkable” advertising

Many people think they know the taste of Coke Zero, but they actually don't. So Ogilvy & Mather created a campaign for Coke Zero that viewers could literally drink, irrespective of whether it was on a billboard, tv, print, or radio.

By simply "Shazaming" the ads, viewers could see Coke Zero pouring in on the screen of their smartphones, filling a glass, which then ended up into an actual free Coke Zero coupon that could be redeemed at select retail stores across the US.
