1. Ashton Kutcher Dating Video
That Ashton Kutcher is extremely funny is no secret nowadays. What also is no secret is that by using a celebrity in your video gives it a viral potential. For triggering single people to join a dating service, Popchips created Worldwidelovers. A fake dating service with Ashton Kutcher in various outfits and roles. Guess what – the video got more than 1,170,000 views in less than 2 days.
Do you now believe that celebrities help your video to go viral?
2. Say NO to Crack, Say YES! to Roller Skating
With more than 648,000 views since April 24th this video is pretty successful even if it resembles 80’s ads. Anyway, do you remember the time when roller skating used to be cool? Rhett & Link will let you enjoy this time again. The video is made for the Roller Kingdom in Reno, Nevada and looks like an old school ad mixed with contemporary humor. The social aspect in this movie puts the story into another perspective. Because everybody wants their children to stay away from drugs and the dangerous streets. Just send your children to Roller Kingdom and say NO to crack. This video shows that it is not necessary to use large budgets to produce a video with a broad impact. At the end everything is about good content with a clear message. And if you would like to lower the budget even more, use your own staff as actors.
3. The Impossible Texting & Driving Test
Okay, let’s be honest; everyone has once sent a text message while driving a car, right? Some people barely know how to drive normally, not to mention driving while holding a mobile phone. This video is quite hilarious yet very serious. It makes you aware of the fact that every year more than thousands of people die behind the wheel due to texting and most of the victims are younger than 25. How can you make this target group more aware about the fact that texting and driving don’t come hand in hand? Literally. RYD.be is a Belgian organization which organizes voluntary activities for raising this awareness. Just watch the movie and see what can happen. Since April 27th this video gained more than 580,000 views.
4. Agent Provocateur: Classics – The Chase
That sex keeps on selling is known by almost every brand. Agent Provocateur knows it and used it again wisely in their video to promote their new underwear line, the Classics. In the video we see a hot model chasing a man after he had stolen a handbag of an old lady and the chase becomes more interesting after a few seconds, especially for the males. Maybe that’s why it go already got close to 400,000 views in two weeks. For more videos check Agent Provocateur at YouTube.
5. Zonajobs: Grandma
It’s a harsh video with a black humor. I think the most used excuse for work or exams is: “my grandmother died”. It’s really severe and people don’t see the seriousness of this excuse. My mother always taught me that I’m not allowed to mock with death.So let grandma rest in piece and find a job without this kind of excude as Zonajobs, a South-American recruitment agency recommends in this video with more than 220,000 views in few days. Do you want to know how you can encourage your staff and prevent them from not coming to work? Know that this excuse is the least trusted one…
