You know how when you implemented your Nyan Cat 404 error page you felt like it was the best 404 error page on all the internet? Yeah, well, hate to break it to you but menu recommendation startup Nosh has just blown your efforts out of the water with this killer Platoon-style video where special ops forces track down missing pages. Per Nosh:
Periodically, pages go missing, assets get misplaced — you should not be concerned. This is a startup, this kind of thing happens. At Nosh, we are fortunate to have a relationship with several teams of ex-special forces operatives who help us track down these missing pages. When a page on this website goes rogue — and a code 404 arises — we dispatch one of our teams to bring it back. Ideally they are able to salvage the missing page, but sometimes, if the page is truly lost, they have to take it out (resulting in the subsequent code 500 when the page gets taken down).
Here’s the video. And here’s their 404 page. After the jump I’ve added the “making of” vid as well as their “Three Dinners” promotional video. You know, because when I start marketing my massage parlor finder app I’ll need to call in a few favors. Seriously though, I went to business school for the chicks and dropped out after a semester but I’m still pretty sure this is how you market a startup.
And now to brighten your spirits…
