Tower Bridge The Night After The Jubilee River Pageant Flotilla

What: Tower Bridge The Night After The Jubilee River Pageant Flotilla

By:

When: June 4th, 2012

Where: Tower Bridge, London

Story: This Tower Bridge video was created by my friend Nick Smith to test his new Canon 5D Mark II. Not being a camera person I have no idea what that means, but what I can tell you is that this is an amazing video just for a 'test'. Given that he is a professional cameraman this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but I'm still blown away with many of the shots he gets. You can find out more about Nick's work from his website: Newsworthy Vision.

Odd Advertising On The Tube – Old El Paso Jubilee Tube Ad

Old El Paso Jubilee Tube Ad

I know you're likely Jubileed out, but I thought I'd highlight my personal favourite ad to make use of the Jubilee to sell something. I have to give Old El Paso high marks for trying to make Mexican (well Americanized Mexican) food seem British - or at least something you'd want to serve at a street party. They even have what is obviously supposed to be the Queen's hand holding up a taco. Hopefully it worked out for them, although I have to admit not seeing a single taco, burrito or other Mexican food over the whole 4 days.

I noticed this ad all last week at South Kensington station, but only got a chance yesterday to take a photo. However, I've seen it all over London. How about you see any good, bad or just odd Jubilee advertising? Tell me below:
