Sure, Cadbury's new ad from agency Fallon is a total re-make of the film from Alexander McQueen's A/W 2006 catwalk show, which projected a Kate Moss version of the film in front of the audience - but it's made by the same director (Baillie Walsh), so it gets a pass.
nice collection of book covers on t-shirts at Out Of Print
"Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our shirts feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.
In addition to spreading the joy of reading through our tees, we acknowledge that many parts of the world don't have access to books at all. We are working to change that. For each shirt we sell, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books For Africa."

Alright…tracked down some of the remnants of France’s expeditions into Indochine with dinner at a great Lao/Vietnamese restaurant. Very good food, non-fashion prices and some of this chimp’s all-time favourite bierski - Beer Lao.
Back at l'hotel we kicked off the second installment of Back To The Future. Great mind blowing storyline, but not quite as flawless as episode 1. 7/10.
