Famous at Ku’damm

MINI Photo Box

On Tuesday I took a trip to the far far West and visited the MINI Photo Box at Ku’damm corner of Joachimstaler Strasse to check out how this whole photobooth-to-video-screen affair is coming along that I introduced to you a few days ago. Until May 29 you have the chance to take your photo and have it transmitted to the biggest video billboard in Germany which is right across the street. It was nice to see how old and young (and even dogs) were curious to try out the whole thing and wait with great anticipation for their image to appear on the big screen.
