Interesting to see Amazon playing catch up in the streaming space with a recently launched campaign Amazon Pilot Season asking you to pick the best of 5 potential series to kick off a full season of episodes. Apparently this is the 3rd wave of such activity, although the first 2 passed me by.
You’ll find more details on Twitter @ and ironically they’ve also been pushing this pilot season through conventional TV platforms!
The boys at Arsenal FC supporting a worthy cause, with an “unlikely” brand tie up with Paddy Power. In particular, Santi Cazorla really tickled me.
With it’s latest 6 YouTube videos to coincide with the launch of the #NoteTheDifference campaign, Samsung takes another swipe at Apple’s slow progress in catching their main competition.
The unlikely reunion that only Hollywood could produce.

This is an intriguing crossover: The Wire stars Idris Elba and Dominic West will reunite for the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. The actors known for playing drug kingpin Stringer Bell and bad-boy cop Jimmy McNulty will both lend their voices to the wholesome Pixar sequel, West toldShortList this week.
Though the kids’ movie probably will not involve an underwater shoot-out, Pixar has a history of nodding to cultural landmarks, like 2001: A Space Odyssey in WALL-E and The Shining in Toy Story 3. So adults in the audience might be treated to a few sly drug-dealing references in Finding Dory.
Elba and West join an all-star cast for the cartoon. Ellen DeGeneres will return as Dory and Albert Brooks as Marlin. Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy and Ty Burrell have also signed on for the sequel.
