See This Great Dutch Site

Don’t worry, you don’t need to understand the words, just so long as you can look at the pictures.

What? No, it’s not that sort of site. So far as I can tell, it’s some sort of shopping site, I just think it’s pretty funny. Have a look for yourselves.

(Thanks to LSW for pointing it out)

    Yes, HEMA is a retail organization with shops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany. I suppose this is meant to promote the online shopping site.
    The web page has an animation that starts automatically, it scrolls automatically without the user being able to stop all this… I really wonder why you didn’t put this blog entry in the accessibility category :-P

    When you right-click on the animation to access the Flash Player settings, the settings dialogue scrolls outside the viewport when the content scrolls. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this before.

    When you click on “nog een keer” at the end of the animation, you can see it again. When you click on “stuur door” you can enter names and e-mail addresses of friends that you want to spam.

    Thanks also for pointing to the LSW-WebDesign site; I hadn’t seen that one before.

    Yeah, I didn’t think it was likely to score for accessibility :-)

    LOL – I had forgotten all about that site, need to clean up my book marks.

    As for Accessibility, yes it is a prime example of what not to0 do to have an accessible web site, but scores high on the fun scale and originality. As long as the rest of the site is accessible I think they can be excused.
