Piccadilly Circus - Microsoft affect Coca-Cola ads

Newer Older

In Piccadilly Circus suddenly the Coke ads stopped to work. Why? Just because it's running on a MS platform, maybe. Best viewed large.

Thank you for all the visits.

To whom it may concern, I shot twice, first with zoom at 18mm then at 70mm.

This is the secon shot with 70mm zoom:

    No way. Surely a Photoshop job?

    Although I hope not :)

    I swear it's not Photoshop made(except the outcut showing the detail, of course). I was there and when I saw it I couldn't believe my eyes, so I've taken off my camera and, this is it. (RAW file as a proof available ;) )

    BTW, thanks for all this visits and fav :)

    I believe you. It's awesome.

    I reckon you should post the original too, without the outcut. I'd put it up on my desk :)

    Perhaps this is a new branding strategy by Coke? ;-)

    i Think i'm in the best viewed large photo, I was there when it happend, I was going to TGI fridays near planet hollywood and it just crashed it said Coca Cola media player has encountered a problem and needs to close were sorry. it made be laugh though they should use macs for thing like that they are the best. the crash lasted about 1 hour. I bet it was embaressing for MS. also did this happen about 2 weeks ago or 29th August cos it happend 2 weeks ago as well

    I wouldn't be the least surprised at this.
    One time I visited a Canon Store and found the touch screens running Windows 95. This was about the time when XP had made its debut.
    I certainly wouldn't buy a car from Bill Gates. Last thing I need is an illegal operation in the middle of the highway.
