What the Hell. When I saw this morning's post on the awesome Sony Bravia Bunny Ad, featuring multi-hued rabbits climbing through a cityscape transforming into a tidalwave, I assumed it was the work of my favourite artists, the LA-based kozyndan. By my front door, I have a framed print of one of their limited edition NYC bunny panoramics, which I've put below. Aside from this, they're probably best known for reworking of Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kana gawa" with bunnies inserted in the place of the white wash, which was featured on a Giant Robot magazine cover. I was only half right about kozyndan's involvement with this Sony project, unfortunately. They were robbed: For pretty damning proof, watch the video, and read on. Apparently, the Passion Pictures animation studio ripped off KozynDan's after requesting samples of their work and never called them back. Dan just wrote me an email about it to confirm that this is pretty much the story, at least from their side. I hear this happens often in advertising, but that doesn't make it fucking right. I guess it's not Sony's fault, but they should at least get their money back or get Passion Pictures to give a fair chunk to the artists. I'm pissed and not sure what I, or anyone else can do about it. Thoughts? [Passion Pictures vs KozyNDan]

Diet fads often make the lofty claim that adjusting food habits one way or another will produce the dieter's desired results. More specifically: Eat this, not that, and watch the kilos fall off.

If we judged the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro like Olympic figure skaters, they'd no doubt earn 10s across the board for technical merit. That's because even though they don't have a built-in stylus, Huawei's new flagship phone duo offers almost every other feature you could want, and I don't just mean the easy shit.
