Viral Marketing puts girl in an iPad helmet

August 3, 2011

Promoting the launch of Cosmo For Guys, Viral marketing company Thinkmodo thought it would be a great idea to put a girls head in a 4 iPad contraption and turn heads. Some people will call it awesome, some will call it creepy, I am just wondering how she is seeing where she is going and if that guy touching her “face” is really annoying her.

A lesson in viral marketing?

December 9, 2008

This week’s ‘best’ Facebook FunSpace virals have made me wonder if you ever really can pick, let alone create, a viral winner. Most of these top 10 videos are shocking. Peanut Butter Jelly Time (despite being a mash up of an old viral), the Teletubbies video and the music clips look like the only videos worth forwarding … at a stretch.

#1 Miranda Lambert “More Like Her”
#2 Cute Animal Christmas Song
#3 2 year-old girl singing the Lord’s Prayer.
#4 Peanut Butter Jelly Time
#5 Hollywood Rap-Up, Dec. 5
#6 Jingle Farts
#7 laughing_babies
#8 Teletubbies: Shake That Ass Bitch
#9 Marilyn Manson “The Beautiful People”
#10 *Christmas Dogs*

Surely we can do better than that. Send me links to any good virals you have received via Facebook lately to restore my faith in Facebook as a good channel for video distribution. Or better yet, send me a link to the worst viral you have received lately. Let’s see if we can top this list.
