Virtual Banking (19): BNP Paribas Hipihi

Among the first wave of Metaverse explorers we've seen quite a lot of banks explore Second Life, some of which have vanished without a trace, and some moved on to other worlds. Some stayed and opened up virtual shop in different worlds as well. One of these banks is the French BNP Paribas.

I've blogged the BNP Parisbas presence in Second Life in the blogpost Virtual Banking (8): BNP Parisbas in June 2007 and just ran into a video of the banker in the Chinese world of Hipihi (thanks to Metaverse 3d). Biggest challenge here was to find the < embed > button on the Japanese YouKu.com site to get the video on MindBlizzard, but finally I took a lucky guess, and viola, here it is.

a small precision : it's not the bank itself but a company from bnp paribas called "l'atelier". They're doing some work around innovation, and high tech stuff ;)
