Zoopla's fun new ad follows a series of hermit crabs ‘swapping shells’ in search of the perfect home.

The chatty community of hermit crabs use Zoopla to filter their property searches, with one crab falling off its rock with excitement at cheaper bills!

We see the clever crustaceans encounter various tricky situations along the way, including a treacherous commute, swooping seagulls, and bad jokes.

Obviously, negotiation is a key feature throughout: we see a pair of crabs bargaining for a rock to come with the ‘property’ – yet the current owner seems reluctant to part with it.

What does your favourite colour mean in different cultures around the world?

A surprising new infographic from SilverDoor takes a look, revealing some interesting associations.

For instance, in the UK blue is often connected with sadness and masculinity; however, in China it brings to mind femininity, while in Thailand (where each day of the week has a colour), it represents Friday!

Similarly, red often means love, but in India the colour is more commonly associated with fear and power - whereas in China terms such as celebration, luck and happiness spring to mind.

However, there are some universal parallels; for example in most cultures, black represents death, bad luck, and magic.

Inspiration seems endless when it comes to the fashion industry, but how about the influence of architecture?

MyModernMet has taken Pierre Balmain's famous quote ‘Dress making is the architecture of movement’ to heart, with an interesting article on the subject.

Comparing a surprising variety of buildings with catwalk looks, there's a clear correlation between architectural styles and the latest fashions.

These include a dress from the Paco Rabanne Fall 2013 which seems to reference the Guggenheim Museum, the delicate stylings of Dior and Esterhazy Palace's interiors, and the intricate geometrics of Jean Paul Gaultier's pieces.

The article also explores how strong silhouettes and bold lines make iconic buildings and high-end clothes so visually striking.

This could be the experience of which dreams are made – an elevated forest park allowing visitors to bounce among the treetops.

Studio Dror has designed ‘Parkorman’ to be in the skies of Istanbul, featuring an elevated playground with pathways, swinging hammocks, and a giant trampoline.

This surreal concept is part of a sustainability project, working with the current environment to create entertainment by designing vertically.

The park would have five zones, which channel different personalities, including the Loop, with swings and hammocks, and the Pool, which is a giant ball pit.

Think you know the story of the Easter Bunny? Think again, according to a heart-warming ad by German supermarket Netto.

‘The Easter Surprise’ tells its own adorable version of the Easter Bunny, in which he’s a product of a happy marriage between a rabbit and a chicken.

The emotional ad follows the baby bunny overcoming various hurdles, such as the internal struggle of a confused identity – half bunny, half chicken – and the obvious result of laying colourful eggs, which results in his isolation.

However, when a human stumbles across one of his eggs, he enters a world where his gifts are gratefully received.

VisitBritain has taken a new approach to attracting American tourists – by enlisting comedian Diane Morgan.

Morgan, known for her work with Charlie Brooker, showcases everything the UK has to offer in two tongue-in-cheek short films: ‘The Self-Help Guru’ and ‘The Rock Star’.

Described as ‘British Famous’ (i.e. not quite famous enough for a US audience), Morgan immerses herself in behaving ‘like an American’ in Wales and Manchester.

In The Self-Help Guru, Morgan takes on mindfulness because ‘it seemed like the easiest one to do’, while in The Rock Star, she becomes an inadvertent celebrity when she blags her way into a bar.

Watch The Self-Help Guru below and find out more about the deadpan campaign here.
