Guardian’s Three Little Pigs

12 Mar

This advert for the Guardian’s open journalism is a seriously clever piece of writing & advertising. Screened for the first time on 29 February 2012, it imagines how we might cover the story of the three little pigs in print and online. Follow the story from the paper’s front page headline, through a social media discussion and finally to an unexpected conclusion.

My favourite part? The fake tweet “keep your chin chin chins up fellas”…

Anal Ant & Dec cock up

So great had to share this post from the Guardian’s Media Monkey:

The Daily Express had a prime example over the weekend of what can happen when you fiddle around with a headline.

Daily Express Ant and Dec headline - first edition First edition

The first edition of Saturday’s paper carried the headline “Can Dec finally match Ant?” on a two-page feature about the ITV presenters, with the word “finally” cut between two pages.

Daily Express Ant and Dec headline - second edition Final edition

Apparently, there were too many headlines with “finally” in, so it was changed to “Can Dec at last match Ant?” But along the way, someone forgot to change both sides of the spread, leaving the “a” of “at” on one page and “nally” of “finally” on the other, creating the memorable headline “Can Dec anally match Ant?” in some later editions. One for the scrapbook, Monkey thinks.
