Feel like some Morning Glory?
It’s a fitness class that started at 6:30 a.m. at London’s Shoreditch, burning calories to the beat of DJ’s before going to work.

The London office of international ad agency Wieden + Kennedy has offered their employees a chance to work like zoo animals.
For their heavily trafficked storefront window, they invited their neighbors in Hanbury Street to participate in their Hello Neighbor campaign.
The idea was to create an imaginative storefront window for the agency, and the winner’s installation is a monochrome cardboard office inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s paintings.
There’s room for W+K employees to enjoy their 15 minutes of zoo-animal like fame, who at the same time still have to work, like typing up e-mails and creating client presentations.

Before this year’s Red Bull Soapbox Race, three contestants showed off their creations on Westminster Bridge in London.
It’s not so much who crosses the finish line first, but also those that are the most creative and pedal the fastest that score the high marks.
