T-Mobile Parking Ticket

T-Mobile have done it again with another highly entertaining piece of video!

I came across this within an expandable super-banner on the front page of YouTube.com. I launched it and wanted to share it with the world which is where this campaign fell down a bit for me, because although it was in a YouTube player and on YouTube.com (albeit within an ad-unit) I couldn’t find a way to share it directly out of the advert.

I went to the trouble of searching for it afterwards because I work in online & mobile video, but how many sharing opportunities were lost from the casual viewer? I’d say a fair few, and it’s ironic really consider T-Mobile tell us that ‘Life’s for sharing’

Great video though, really enjoyed it!

King of Shaves launch a sexy ‘viral’ (video)

As a red blooded male this King of Shaves video is very easy on the eye, but I fail to see any part of the advert which promoted a selling point.

If it was shot purely to raise awareness – and if it does indeed go viral – then it will have done its job. Other than that, it doesn’t really show or sell me anything.

It reminds me very much of the cinema advert that Kylie starred in a few years ago for Agent Provocateur lingerie, but all the flesh and thrashing about from Kylie led to an invitation for the gentlemen to stand, and when they couldn’t manage it we assumed that the red hot lingerie had achieved the desired effect.

I don’t see any of that in this video. For old times sake, I have embedded Kylie below.

Awareness Test

This is old now but a really, really clever piece of viral video that is well worth another look.

Google ad perfect for a Valentines Day tweak

This viral video advert for Google is surely begging to be tweaked for a Valentines Day special?

It shows the journey of a chap from a trip to Paris, to meeting a girl, wooing her, moving to Paris, then getting married and having kids.

It’s a nice, visual way to show how the search engine is central to people’s lives. A bit like the modern day J.R. Hartley!

Great viral video from Coke

I love this ‘Happiness’ stunt by Coca-Cola on a college campus, but assuming the students were unaware that this was a stunt, that surely means the first girls was technically stealing? :o)

It’s had over 1.2m hits on YouTube so its obviously made a connection with the consumer.

T-Mobile ‘Hey Jude’ sing-along

Although it’s nearly a year old, this remains one of the best examples of viral video that I have seen.

It has amassed over 2,000,000 plays on YouTube to date because it is a highly entertaining peice of video, and I think it gets across the single message for T-Mobile that ‘Life’s for Sharing’ brilliantly.
