Old pagers and brick-sized cell phones are relics to you and me, but they're music to the ears of these guys from South Korea's telephone network SK Telecom.
In this advertising video clip put together to celebrate 30 years of mobile phones, they've arranged about three dozens of old mobile phones (including the Motorola DynaTAC phones - does anyone remember that?) so their ringtones play an electronic, mobile orchestra of sort.
Dontcha think that the composition has a, uh, ring to it?

Markovic, the Cypriot designer, said to Philenews "When I first saw the photo online, I felt that I had seen it somewhere. Looking at it again, I realized that it's my shirt. I didn't believe it at first!" Markovic noted that the design is available on several T-shirt sites (one of which is his NeatoShop).
This is why supermarkets should always hire people with OCD to stock their shelves (lettuce ask the manager to raise that man's celery!). The wonderfully stacked vegetables in the produce department are probably just waiting for that jerk of a customer who'd always pick from the bottom of the pile.
Beets me why they do that. They just don't carrot all about squash-ing someone's feelings. Not berry nice at all.
Why should Disney princesses have all the fun? Artist Sakimi Chan decided to gender swap her favorite Disney princesses/villains into dudes (and vice versa) - and the results are quite stunning! The details and colors of Chan's artwork are amazing in and of themselves, then the unexpected twist of gender bending the characters really propel them into a whole 'nother level.
Take a look at Sakimi Chan's wonderful gender swapped Disney characters below and at her deviantArt page:
Truck drivers often signal each other to warn about road hazards. For example, truckers would double-flash their headlights when they just passed a police speed trap to warn other drivers in the oncoming lanes.
That's what trucker Chris Hill of Southern Oregon did to warn others of a sheriff deputy behind him. Problem was, another deputy noticed his signal and radioed in to have Hill pulled over and issued a $260 ticket for misusing his headlights.
But was it legal? Hill decided to argue his case in court as a free speech issue ... and won!
According to a Jackson County judge, as reported by SF Gate, ticketing a driver for warning others of a police nearby is illegal because flashing headlights is free speech. "The citation was clearly given to punish the Defendant for that expression. The government certainly can and should enforce the traffic laws for the safety of all drivers on the road. However, the government cannot enforce the traffic laws, or any other laws, to punish drivers for their expressive conduct."
Here's looking at you(r) wedding invite and posters, kids!
A couple's wedding is the time of their life when they get to feel like movie stars, so why not commemorate it Hollywood-style? David DiCicco and Rachael Batts were discussing ideas for their wedding invites when they came up with thought of creating one based on a Casablanca poster. They talked to their friend, a photographer and graphic designer named Andres Martinez of Studio Rigby - who not only agreed to make their wedding invites, but also movie posters as his wedding gift to them.
The results? Epicness!
Here are the movie posters that Martinez created for the glamorous couple, as he told the world over at reddit and imgur:
Here's what happens when Americans taste test British snacks. Buzzfeed's UK office sent Jelly Babies, Jaffa Cakes, Spotted Dick sponge pudding, Wham Bar ("the official candy of George Michaels" - hah!), Maynards' Wine Gum to their American colleagues. This is what they think of British snacks:
The god of thunder ain't got nothing on this plumber dude ... and forget mystery boxes, he smashes barrels - just how many pop culture reference can NeatoShop artist c0y0te7 fit into this awesome design?
Ain't no party like a retro gamin' party! NeatoShop artist Azafran pokes a little bit of fun at the term "retro gamer" with this punny design (the guy in the monocle's cheating, by the way). Somewhere a dog is laughing at us.
It's a poopy trap! After peace has prevailed in a galaxy far far away, the mighty rebel admiral retired from military service and started his own diaper cleaning service. And he's already got a handy motto, courtesy of NeatoShop artist Matt Sinor.
Check out Matt's Facebook and Twitter pages, then head on over to his NeatoShop for more amazing designs. Not a trap, we promise:
Tonight he dines on turtle soup! NeatoShop artist Twist Media artistically reimagines our favorite fightin' turtles and their mortal enemies like you've never seen them before. Check out Twist Media's Facebook and Twitter, then head on over to his NeatoShop for more fantastic artwork:
The newspaper classifieds (remember those?) is so anachronistic in today's digital world that it's like delving into a trippy and foreign world.
Felipe Salazar, Creative Director of Sancho BBDO advertising agency in Colombia, managed to grab our attention by cleverly manipulating the local newspaper's classified sections to create this unusual ad for his client Corona Kitchen. The ad shows a three-dimensional outline of a kitchen - including a range with hood, counter top and shelvings - simply by stretching and rearranging the text.
In his house at Hundred Acre Wood dead Winnie the Thulhu waits dreaming ... about honey! NeatoShop artist TeeKetch mashes up our favorite elder god with a classic kid's story to create this horrifyingly good design.
It's a love story, basically - a love story between brother and sister, mixed with lots and lots of death. NeatoShop artist Gordon Brebner Designs mashed up one of our favorite fantasy TV series with a Broadway classic to come up a design that all the gangs of New York and the houses of Westeros will love.
The cake may be a lie, but this nifty shirt by NeatoShop artist Moysche Designs is very much real. You don't have to fight the Vox Populi to get it, though - all you have to do is visit Moysche Design's NeatoShop:
