That was the year that was … our favourite bits and bobs from 2011 …

We thought that it’d be nice to drag a variety of bits and bobs that we scribbled about on Spinning Around during the course of 2011 into one neat and easy place. Which means that, if you’re sitting in the office this week without too much to do, you can kill more-or-less a whole hour watching all of this nonsense. Which can’t be bad, now can it?

So … first off … The Royal wedding was the biggest thing to happen in 2011. T-Mobile’s viral the funniest thing to happen from a brand in its wake (we think) …



Madness from Nissan with “Damned Ponies” was … odd …

Then there was some beautiful work from Dermablend loosely hooked to woman of the year, Lady GaGa …

45 million views after its launch, VW’s The Force was a 2011 phenomenon …

Skittles’ Touch the Rainbow campaign was, in my humble, a bit bobbins. Except for this …

Moshi Monsters’ homage to Badger Badger Badger made us smile a lot …

Footlocker’s Sneakerpedia was a cracking idea from the mass-market brand …

Canal+ continued their run of quirky, clever campaigning …

And then there was the bug-powered phone …

So there you have it. If you’ve watched that little lot, you’re half an hour closer to Christmas than you were when you landed on this page. Which can’t be an altogether bad thing, now can it?

Happy Christmas folks … hope you have lovely, lovely years! Lots of love from all of us at Hope&Glory.
