Cold Stone Creamery Experiment

Awhile back Steph wrote about an experiment she had in mind involving Cold Stone Creamery and a ridiculous amount of mix-ins on a single scoop of vanilla.

We filmed it. I edited it. I’ve posted it. You can watch it.

    Something happened and I wasn’t able to watch beyond the display of the tip, but what I saw so far was very well-done, very entertaining, and very interesting. You finally assuaged my nearly endless wondering over what this marvelous monstrosity actually looked like. And I was particularly impressed with the use of “Candy Man.”

    Ever since reading Steph’s original post, I think about you guys and the experiment every time I walk past Coldstone at Mall of America.

    Glad you liked it, Mike!

    In case anyone wants to try downloading the thing directly, you can do so by right-clicking (or control-clicking on a Mac) on this link and saving the resulting .mov file. That’s a QuickTime file, and you can play it whenever you like without using my bandwidth! Yay!

    It’s possible the web server is having problems with my file, but I don’t know. I’m no video expert, that’s for sure. Anything over 10 MB is new, risky territory as far as I’m concerned. 🙂

    Wow, what is that? Like a 5-6 month turnaround time? HOW do you even get web devving jobs with a speed of creation like that? :p

    They actually did a great job mixing it together and had some nice presentation there at the end. Nice use of whipped cream. LOL, and Josh, you are such a big geek, running along behind the group with the camera, lol.

    All I can say is that I’ve never seen Josh drive that fast before. WOW

    I’m totally impressed that they ate it all! And without puking, at that! Although, Camille looked awfully close. The editing was great, but I felt like it needed more closure, like with Sinatra’s “My Way” or Queen’s “Under Pressure”.

    Ooo, dang, Under Pressure would’ve been awesome.
