2. Battle At F-Stop Ridge
So this is what it would be like if wars were fought with cameras instead of guns. You can see that the guys from The Camera Store take photography very serious; they brought their cameras to F-Stop Ridge to battle it out. It kind of looks like “Saving Private Ryan” all over again but this time with cameras instead of guns. Amazing commercial with amazing sound-effects!

4. One Hitter
The big challenge for cartoons in newspapers is to get a complete understandable story and a laugh within a minimum of space. This video masters this challenge. Thanks to a well written tight script (it’s only 1.03 min) and a great contribution of two icons of acting, this video went viral. Alec Baldwin is angry at John Krasinski and he made huge efforts to solve this problem. The video was created for New Era Caps and it’s online since May 12th with almost 400,000 views. The video is part of a great Social Campaign as well. Pick your side!
