If you went to astro.com.my lately you’d have noticed something different.

The top banner right under the navigation bar is now scroll-able to the right, and give it a try, scroll it right and keep going on, and on, and on, and on….

Astro longest banner
this image is 600 pixels, the whole banner is 61,500 pixels long

It is in fact, the currently the World’s Longest Online Banner record holder, and this is made possible in conjunction with Astro On-The-Go’s “Where do YOU want Astro On-The-Go contest” that encourages users to submit a photo of them in the most creative locations enjoying Astro On-The-Go.

The contest ran from July to August and I wrote about it in this previous entry, very cool to finally see the end product of it. The banner actually tripled the previous record set by BMW.

And remember the Astro On-The-Go Human-iPad showcase that we got to sample in that same pool party a few months ago? Astro put on this compilation of the videos captured while the campaign was showcased at various popular locations in Klang Valley.

The video has achieved more than 260,000 views in a month. Check out the video here.

Did you know that this is in fact Asia’s first ever Human-iPad theatre, I just think the effect is really cool.

You can watch some of your favorite shows, including Hollywood blockbusters – The Avengers, Cabin in the woods, The Proposal, and local favourites – Ombak Rindu, Adam dan Hawa..etc. and even Korean dramas.

AOTG contest winners

And by the way, I wanna congratulate the winners – Soo Siew Kuan, Ahmad Faizal bin Hashim, Tan Siang Leng, Ng Pui Hai, Fariza Ilyani binti Mustaffa, and Khairul Faizal bin Jamaludalin. They walked away with iPads & Astro On-The-Go merchandises.

I.. didn’t win. Maybe better luck next time!

Discuss : Astro On-The-Go breaks World Records three times over!

  1. LOL, yea, better luck next time! :P

  2. I have watched their banner and now I am thinking to add my photo also in the banner series. It would be so cool!
