Five Things in Five Minutes

Five Things in Five Minutes
Friday 18 May, 2018

This week Lego celebrates the royal wedding,  IKEA takes a sleepy approach to print advertising and the New York subway gets a Ziggy Stardust-inspired makeover. Read on for this week's Five Things in Five Minutes. 

1. A royal Lego wedding
Lego's contribution to tomorrow's royal wedding took 592 hours and a staggering 39,960 bricks. The impressive construction includes Windsor castle, the wedding party, spectators and (whoops!) even Meghan's dad. 

2. IKEA hits snooze in new ad campaign
IKEA's newest print ad campaign promises to be the 'sleepiest ever', using lavender-scented ink and an in-built white noise speaker to highlight IKEA's range of beds and mattresses.

3. Underground control to Major Tom 
Spotify has teamed up with the New York City Subway to celebrate the life and works of the late David Bowie. An underground takeover includes Bowie-inspired art with a unique Spotify code. 

4. Move over Mars Rover
NASA is set to make history, sending a helicopter to Mars. Scheduled to launch in 2020, the chopper will demonstrate viability for more vehicles on the red planet. 

5. Yanny or Laurel?
First that dress, now, an auditory illusion has broken the internet. With intense disagreement over a recording from vocabulary.com, the jury is still out. Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?
