Set Stalking - the New Scourge of Hollywood

I love YouTube, and visit it most days, either for work-related research, or for entertainment.

I've recently noticed a new typle of video appearing, highlighting a natural combination of blogging and online video - set stalking, or filming movies in production.

Spiderman 3 is a classic case in point.

A month or so ago this clip, of Spiderman flying, complete with wires that would be CGI-ed out, got 790,000 views.

I've now discovered that other peole are doing this, with slightly less impressive results.

This one has about 200 views so far

& this guy has posted 27 videos so far - does this mean he could be official?

More on Michael Owen's World Cup Blog

It's impressive that he's keeping it up now that he's not playing any more.

"I am absolutely devastated to have been ruled out of the world cup, but I think England can still win the competition and I’ll be their number one fan from now on.
I had a scan on my knee on the morning after the game against Sweden and it confirmed my worst fears. When I fell to the turf the pain in my knee was so bad that I knew that it was something serious.
The tests have shown that I have ruptured my cruciate ligament and it looks like I could be out of action for the rest of the year, not just the world cup."

JWT and The Huffington Post

For one week only - although hopefully they'll be archived - JWT is roadblocking the landing page of The Huffington Post blog site with video ads for various clients, including Ford and Levi's.

See them all here

The one for Scruffs is pretty full-on

They take an age to load though...

World Cup Player Diaries on MSN

As part of it's World Cup coverage, MSN is hosting player diaries/blogs within MSN Spaces.

Here's Michael Owen's

Our aim is of course to win the world cup and I think we have a group of players who can achieve that at last, but let's not get carried away with us, us, us. I'm sure Italy, Spain and Portugal wonder why they haven't been winning it either. There's only one winner every four years. We're right in thinking we have a chance, but so are eight or nine other teams. A lot of people think we've got a divine right to win because this is our best team for years, but football doesn't work like that. We need to change the perception that we are serial losers.

& here's Ronaldinho's

Now writing about Germany.
The city of Konigstein (I had to look at the program to see how it’s spelled), he-he-he.
We flew in last night. It was a quick flight. It was late when we got to the hotel. I only had time to have a snack and jump in bed. I slept like a log. Today is a day off and we have to check in at 22:00 h.
I’ll use this time to rest because we’ll be training tomorrow, in the morning and in the afternoon.
They say the field is perfect, I’m looking forward to trying it.

& finally, Edgar Davids

Imagine a child running and a smile comes to your face. Same with a group of children and that’s the way its supposed to be. Nothing but positive thoughts go through your head ‘cause it represents fun, freedom and not a worry in the world.

Volvo Hunt - Find Buried Treasure

Volvo UK are running a competition to tie in with Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest.

They've buried a car (presumably in the UK), and will be releasing new clues up to the final date of 12th July.

The first clue involves people going to their local dealership to pick up a map. Very good!

See it here - and good luck!
