Sharing your Honda story

If you are asking yourself what this is all about, let me give you some details. This year, Honda will release a series of mini documentaries which will allow their customers to highlight the personal experiences of Honda products either for fun or as a necessary part of their daily livelihood. So, even if you are using cars, ATVs, motorbikes or boats in the way they were supposed to be used, or you are using the Honda products in some unique ways, all you have to do is to share your own story and you might see it on TV.

A first example of such short films created by W+K for Channel 4 features the farmer Philippa who uses her Honda ATV to tend to the alpacas on her farm. A pioneer in her field, Philippa has been breeding beautiful and award-winning alpacas for some years. With acres of land to cover every day, Philippa’s Honda is an indispensable member of the farm. All short films will feature owners of Honda vehicles who are using them, let's say, in more unusual ways, not only for the regular shopping or just for a walk to the mall.

The mentioned campaign will be accompanied by Facebook and Twitter in all its phases, engaging users and linking to the online hub at where the documentaries, other films, interesting stories or articles will be also available. The 'Take Part' section shouldn't be missed, as there you can upload stories and photographs if you are a Honda owner. You can share also the unusual ways in which you use the Honda products. In the end, the favourite story will be turned into the final documentary which will be turned into idents for TV.

Shopping places in New York

New York totally lives up to its nick name, Empire State. A galaxy of sightseeing attractions, endless lip smacking culinary addictions, and a raging nightlife team up to ensure a smashing unforgettable experience. When it comes to shopping, the destination spoils one for choice to say the least. If you think that this sounds unbelievable, catch any of the numerous flights to New York and find out for yourself. Here is a small take on just four of the prized shopping places from amongst other options.

Macy’s. Sitting in Herald Square since 1902, Macy’s Flagship Store has become a legend and symbol for the statement that shopping in itself is something of an institution in New York. Wooden escalators and other old memorabilia make for a unique ambience. The store is massive and has found its way into the Guinness Book of Records for being the world’s largest department store. Be it the handbag department, shoe department, or children’s department, Macy’ offers a world of choice. The best time to feel the vibrancy of this outlet is the Christmas season. At this time of the year, a carnival like atmosphere grips Macy’s.

Woodbury Common. Woodbury Common Premium Outlets is a Central Valley outlet centre. With some 220 stores across 800,000 square feet, it is among the largest discount designer and contiguous outlet centres on the planet. Colour coding is used in different areas to help visitors in catching their bearings. Its proximity to New York City and daily bus and shuttle services to outlets make it a hot favourite draw with holidaymakers in New York.

Saks Fifth Avenue. This opulent department store is among the world’s most famed retailers and has been the haunt of the elites since 1902. This shopping hot spot is meant for the ultra rich, where the sales staff goes out of its way to pamper the shopper. Retaining the old wooden fittings, SAKS has an old world dignified charm about itself. This seamlessly blends with the fact that only top notch designer stuff is to be found here.

Bloomingdales. Bloomingdales is another shopping legend along with Macy’s and has found mention in popular TV programmes like Friends and Will and Grace. Both Bloomingdales and Macy’s are owned by the same group. The iconic status of Bloomingdales can be gauged from the fact that even its trademark small brown bags have become legends. The store seems to sell virtually everything under the sun. Overseas shoppers would do well to contact the store’s visitor services desk for hotel delivery and numerous other services.
