Visit France without ever leaving YouTube.

Editor's Pick

Biborg gets creative with a banner ad that allows you to "fly" over France in a hot-air balloon. In June, the agency earned top prize for the ad, along with Lean Mean Fighting Machine and German agency Haasenstein, at Doubleclick's HTML5 Challenge.

Using HTML5 and integrating with Google maps, the banner allows you to pick a hot air balloon and zoom around France, getting closeups of monuments like the Eiffel Tower and Chateau de Versailles. Works best in Chrome -- and the music in the demo is pretty catchy, too.
