This one has been flooding our inbox: the webpage for Google's new Nexus S Phone shows the Big Buck Bunny trailer to illustrate the 'Entertainment on the Go' section.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Yes, nice, but maybe we should stop those sightings, what do you think? It looks a bit like jumping at every scrap of news that is somehow Blender-related, as if the community had serious self-esteem issues :)
    "You know, my uncle mentioned Blender when he was shaving" ;)
    I mean it's fun and all, but maybe it should no longer make the headlines here. Let's have our "dignity" :)
    Blender is pretty-well known already, we need not get excited over every bit of acknowledgement that it exists. I wonder if I'm alone in this sentiment?

  2. @Pawel I understand where you're coming from. I find the sightings interesting though, as it mainly shows where the open content created by the Blender Foundation is used. It seems like when it comes to "free" full HD content the Blender movies are very popular!

  3. Big "Bug" Bunny is a name given to a bug in a crappy german tablet PC (Wetab) where, after a software update, every user video on the device was replaced with the Big Buck Bunny video.

  4. @Pawel I want this kind of news... this shows how good open content is for all of industry and us - everybody that wants to use it can do so without asking. Try this with Micky Mouse and I'm sure you get a law suit after just one minute after you publish...

  5. Actually this "bug context" isn't so funny! It may be funny between a game (or a program) creators when they are talking about their OWN creature and their well known issues. But not this. It's a crap reference that a free software must be full of bugs - not a commercial one. EVERY software is full of bugs in the middle of a development, especially.
    So it's not about licensing - it's about slander.
    Guys who have a free time to write few words to those crappy jokers - you may ask them to remove such pics with bad names. It's not a big deal but if you want to harras some idiots - I think that you may do it with a clear conscience.

  6. Haha on a other mobile device XD

    I also saw BBB on the Archos Android tablets in Big Buy when i was over in America.
    Got a video somewhere
