Saw this on Fabulously “Broke” In the City and had to share.
I really have to hand it to Blackberry for making their marketing work with their advertising so seamlessly. They used the same concept as the photograph by Harold Edgerton – which was a microsecond capture of the bullet piercing an apple. Edgerton was considered a “pioneer” in strobe photography – read all about it from Wiki. (yes y’all be your own researcher and know that Yaya got all the goodies for ya!) Well anyway I like how they used an actual blackberry to pierce an apple like a bullet. The things that make me happy…
Here’s the original:
