Face-replacement video cut-up prominent in UK General Election

"Young music fans seem energised by the Labour leader, unlike any other politician in recent times... Grime star Stormzy has endorsed Corbyn (he particularly liked his anti-Apartheid activism in the eighties), as have other grime scene mainstays like Novelist, AJ Tracey and Boy Better Know collective co-founder JME (brother of Skepta), who even had a photocall with the Labour leader the other week. You can’t buy these sorts of endorsements: #grime4corbyn is very much a grass roots movement, it hasn’t come from a youth wing of Labour or been manufactured by party apparatchiks in any way. ...

At the Brighton gig at seafront venue The Arch, there’s a friendly, positive vibe as various performers take their turns on the mic and decks. A stall in the corner sells #grime4corbyn t-shirts and prints, while in the smoking area outside some gritty artwork featuring assorted grime MCs is peppered with images of MC Jezza himself. “May try say she better than me/Tell my man shut up,” reads one, perhaps alluding to the video that some wag produced that transposes Corbyn’s face onto Stormzy’s ‘Shut Up’ promo. “Punishing pensioners and taking school meals away from our children,” Corbyn — throwing shapes in a red tracksuit — begins in the online skit, before his ‘posse’ add ‘SHUT UP’. The video has understandably gone viral."

Shocking augmented reality experience greets London commuters

"Pepsi Max has gone straight to the top of this week's Viral Video Chart with its 'unbelievable bus shelter' which hoodwinked Londoners into thinking they were witnessing everything from an alien invasion to a loose tiger running in their direction.

The drinks brand rigged up a bus stop in the middle of central London with convincing digital technology which gave commuters the allusion that they were looking through a pane of glass to the world outside, when really they were seeing a digital display. A variety of awesome effects were then played onto the display to give the unsuspecting victims a fright."

1980s chiptune easter egg rediscovered in NZ washing machines

"Twenty years of patriotism on the part of Fisher & Paykel has been revealed thanks to a viral social media video that shows its washing machines can play the national anthem. A video posted on YouTube by a woman on Tuesday has received more than 165,000 hits. The woman explains how to make the washing machine play the New Zealand national anthem.

Fisher & Paykel marketing manager Sonya Aitken said the machines, which can also play the United States and Australian anthems, were programmed to play tunes by the company's engineers for demonstration purposes. ... While the singing machines were used to draw customers' attention in stores 20 years ago, it was no longer part of sales techniques, so the feature had essentially been forgotten and then rediscovered, she said."
