Cherry Coke Does Colorful MySpace Page, Back Button Still Useless


In one of the better makeovers of the horrific-looking MySpace, Juxt has created a Cherry Coke MySpace Page Design contest that places the winning design on the MySpace homepage. As part of the contest, there's all sorts of Flashtastic goodies for people to embed within their own sites, screensavers, wallpapers and all the rest of the usual stuff.

Unfortunately, as with most Flash creation, the browser Back button is rendered useless causing one to continuously back off the promotional page by mistake. Would it really be so hard for Flash to enable or for designers to make possible the use of the browser back button within a Flash page? Or to prevent the entire Flashurbation from also rendering useless the right click menu? Flash can make beautiful things but it also has a nasty tendency to fuck with established web navigation methods.

Oh Juxt, it'd be great if your flash shooters had the brains to concept such a thing. While Mediapost and AdRants may not know, you (and your client) know who came up with this idea.

Don't you remember the meetings where you pushed back on the idea? Don't you remember pushing Cherry Coke T-shirts and hats - an idea as expensive and it was unscalable?

I guess when you work on a project basis, you have to grab at straws...
