What comes to mind when someone mentions a ‘viral’ video? Is it a musical marriage proposal? Twerking gone wrong? Or even a young child shouting “Charlie bit my finger”? If it any of the above do come to mind then I’m not surprised as that’s what I would think of too.
Just to clear it up for any not aware of the term viral video – it’s when a video becomes very popular by people sharing it to others usually via the internet. Usually we find viral videos to be funny, very sweet or unique. However this video I have shared below I am surprised became viral.
This video is very emotive, with a strong message. Without being an advert for “Don’t Drink and Drive” it acts as one. It comes from a campaign/group called Because I Said I Would. They have a YouTube page, a Facebook page and a Twitter feed. When trying to find out what this group is about I came across the following… Because I said I would is a social movement dedicated to bettering humanity through the power of a promise. To encourage positive change and acts of kindness, we send “promise cards” to anywhere in the world at no cost. Because I said I would executes charitable projects in support of other non-profit organizations and good they bring into the world. (http://www.youtube.com/user/becauseisaidiwould/about).
I doubt you’ll see another viral video like it so give it a watch.
As Summer is coming close to an end, and I go back to University next week, my life isn’t quite yet hectic. Once my lectures are back in full swing and I’m starting my one-day-a-week internship, I’ll hopefully be posting about “A Day In The Life Of An Intern” (or something along the lines of that). But until then, as nothing much is going on I’ve decided to dedicate this blog post to Irn Bru as my sister showed me a montage of Irn Bru adverts from the past few years and I think I should shine light to them. I didn’t realize how funny they were!
Here we go (the title will make sense after watching this)…
This was banned from TV, however, it is still hilarious!
This is unexpected…
“You canny call her Fanny”…
Not too sure if this is appropriate for a TV ad – maybe that’s why I’ve never actually seen it on TV!
And finally… This is possibly the smartest of all the adverts shown so far as it’s shown throughout Christmas – and we all know the snowman and we know the song too.
Although I’ve already blogged once this week, I came across a great new advert which my boyfriend had shared on Facebook which I had to show on my blog. For all of you who haven’t yet seen it, get watching!
A fabulous ad for the new LG Ultra HD 84″ TV. 10/10 from me – what do you think?
