Fun in merchandising

HEMA is a department store in the Netherlands.  Like all other businesses, it now has on-line shopping.

But it’s online with a diffference.  Load this page, and then wait a few seconds . . .

(Can you tell whether this is a real HEMA page, or just a good parody?  Anyone?)

(And, what kind of software does one need to do that kind of animation?  Is there any classroom use for this?)

    Then again, HEMA is a bit of an oddity when I first went there. I’m not sure what their focus is, which could pose a problem. But they sure have clever advertising:

    It’s quite creative. I had the opportunity to look at this site, and perhaps they just want to generate buzz.

    It looks like they’re suggesting going to for your real shopping, so I’m taking it as a friendly paradoy. Quite fun.

    It did raise my eyebrows to a see a portable stereo labeled “ghettoblaster.”
