Look at M&Ms, for instance. What used to be known as “melts in your mouth, not in your hands” can now be personalized with “Mindy + Jeff,” customized as a corporate gift, or purchased as a stuffed toy based on the animated “alive” characters they have become.

How do you take your business from one dimensional to three dimensional? How could you use the Flip Mino to create your own TV commercial?
