…Honda solved the Problem Playground?

From the company that brought you the Honda Cog ad (Wieden+Kennedy) comes a new one called Problem Playground to help promo Honda’s new FCX Clarity.

The idea is that gaming goes hand in hand with the problem solving that Honda’s engineers had to do to create the first zero-emission hydrogen car, and the execution is on par with the rest of their fantastic spots.

Another classic?

…It’s TGI Friday: Moola?

What if you could make real money from your online gaming addiction?

What if you could make that money without ever risking any of your own?

Moola, a “massively multiplayer rewards game”, wants to do just that, and will be opening its site (currently in beta) to the masses by the end of today.

(If you’d like to get in, and the site is still not live, click HERE for an invite.)

So how does it work?

Moola WinningsWhen you first join the site, Moola gives you a penny. You then play a game against another player, and you both wager that penny. Before the game starts, you have to watch an ad, and then the winner of the game receives both player’s pennies. Betting continues at higher and higher dollar amounts until you decide to either cash out, or you go broke and have to start all over again. Any time you loose all of your money, Moola gives you another penny and you start all over again.

Since you double up each time you play, if you can win 30 times in a row, you’d walk away with $10.7 million, but considering the fact that both players would be risking $5.35 million (you can cash out at any time), the chances of that ever happening are slim to none.

Regardless, the highest cash out so far has been in the $5,500 range, so there is some serious cash to be made if you play the games right. Plus, when the site goes live, there will be a steam of new players, meaning the pace of play is going to pick up dramatically.

Sound like a deal?

Then head on over and try it out, because other player’s Moola isn’t going to wait around forever.

…Wii would like to play?

Nintendo has unWiished the first of their Wiimercials, and it’s a good one. The highlight of the ad is what the new console is all about: a new way to play. With motion sensitive controllers and intuitive game play, the Wii hopes to trounce processor power and stellar graphics with playability and fun. It’s a system that everyone can pick up and play, and it aims to revolutionize gaming as Wii know it. Judging by this first spot, it looks like it’s well on its way. Wii would like to play.
