Here is what I think is one of the most innovative pieces of advertising I’ve seen for a while, it’s a website for a Japanese clothes store but they have made it a bit more compelling than a normal clothes website.
It starts off as a clock showing the local Tokyo time with some very addictive music in the background.
After 5 seconds we see our first dance routine, the routines are flash video and are very high quality full screen. The trick is that the video buffers while the clock shows and that makes the site responsive and sharp on even the slowest of computers with the slowest of connections (still broadband though).
The routines are randomized so it rarely gets boring, it gets very addictive although more changes in the music would have been better.
