Coke Zero get it right, 007 style. The 70 second challenge.

Great example of viral, well kind of viral, love it when brands go the extra mile. And it's all beatboxy. Love it. 

Julio Bashmore - Au Seve - new favourite

Yeah I'm fickle with music. This is my new favourite heard it on the wonderous new breakfast show this morning, nothing like turning your speakers up and your windows down in late October at 8.45 am. #TeamGrimmy
