I saw this advertisement for Nokia mobile phones on TV and I thought to myself, “did I just see Flickr on TV”? Guess what. It came around for a second commercial break, and I captured it to prove it.
No doubt Nokia is leading the way by integrating Web 2.0 services in its phones, but I think this advertisement shows off just how much Nokia is committed to Web 2.0. This ad is all about creating content, sharing content, content mash-ups and vertical markets. How cool is that? He’s even sharing music. SHARING MUSIC! Take that Zune and RIAA!
I did some digging around and found the actual Flickr profile used in the advertisement. It belongs to a person called Pille Hikinen. However the woman painting picture doesn’t exist in his gallery, probably removed immediately after the commercial was shot. But having a real Flickr user just shows how ‘real’ this is.
