do you get any points for pointing out features? I never knew it blows. That's awesome.
 
2012-12-11 08:21:41 AM
No. I hope you get an F.

Not done by a real farker, as the person in the video was testing suction on a vacuum cleaner...with his pants on

I watched it now gimme some magic beans
 
2012-12-11 08:59:21 AM
Somebody make a torrent for it and then I'll watch it.

/that'll teach subby to market
 
2012-12-11 09:20:50 AM
That's all I needed to see -- someone manipulating their face-fat with a vacuum.
 
2012-12-11 09:26:06 AM
Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater!
 
2012-12-11 09:44:55 AM
I'd link to that movie caption of the guy from Billy Madison who says what I just heard was complete nonsense, but, I'm about as motivated as the guy in this You Tube video, so, yeah.

If you're going to ask a high class collection of internet users like us to look at your video, at least show a little enthusiasm when filming it.
 
2012-12-11 11:10:51 AM
No. Do your own homework.

/wait...What?
 
2012-12-11 11:15:09 AM
So your grade will be based on how many false views you can generate?

You are doing this for a marketing project, and the best headline you could come up with is this?

Uh, you are doing it wrong and I will not click the video until the Headline is sufficiently funny, interesting, offensive, or outright false :D
 
2012-12-11 11:22:11 AM
Subby just sucked away 42 seconds of my time.
 
2012-12-11 11:30:07 AM
Yep, seems like what they teach in marketing. Subby has never seen a review before? How about you seem enthusiastic about it? Maybe light it properly so it doesn't look like you are going to kill the vacuum in a few minutes?
Submit that one though.
 
2012-12-11 11:33:02 AM
Subby, don't go into marketing. You suck. Ridgid things.
 
2012-12-11 11:34:12 AM
I can see you're going to go far in this world.
 
2012-12-11 11:34:58 AM
Hey submitter, please watch this video

Take a look at your Insight for the video, see all the Farkers who watched for 5 seconds and then shut it down. We might put up with your review, but not the damn PORTRAIT video aspect ratio.

Learn to shoot proper video. 

/Hopes your instructor only looks at view count, not view time, for your sake
 
2012-12-11 11:36:22 AM
Wow. You worked really hard on that, huh?

Wow subby I know you're just phoning it in as per normal college student; but that was just sad and I hope you redo it with a little effort. If your trying to market the item to people as I'm sure is your assignment is then inform them of the product. What features would make me want to buy said item over it's competition. Think of your audience for the product and pitch items that would appeal to them. As of now if I was your instructor I'm afraid an F would be in your future.
 
2012-12-11 12:31:01 PM
That was underaverage.

You were right to not click it. He spent less effort on it than you did with that comment.
 
2012-12-11 12:33:14 PM
Jesus, talk about minimum effort. Assistant manager at K-mart, here you come!
 
2012-12-11 12:33:24 PM
sorry, subby...but now I wish I didn't click because you were bored and made two obvious puns with nothing else and might get an A because of page views.

man, school has changed since the millenium when I went.

What are the odds he cleaned only that part of his house to fit in frame and the rest is messy. I may have taken verticle photos to crop out messy areas that the kids created.
 
2012-12-11 12:54:38 PM
A+. very informative.

Either that or he'll star in the next Head-On commercial.

Gee, if only there were some sort of tool, some powered device that would enable the user to clean portions of the house so he could properly record video in a less annoying fashion. Shame he had nothing remotely like that available. Even worse, he had nothing to demonstrate his product on, apparently.

Tell your teacher this is the dumbest way to grade in history. Think about it, your grade is based on how many people you can con into watching this. It has nothing to do with quality.

See that greasy kid in the back with no friends? He is going to get an A because he has nothing better to do than click "play" all night long.
 
2012-12-11 02:34:10 PM
Well thanks to comment here I am glad I didn't watch it. I hate vertical videos.

Just label the video "boobies" and make the thumbnail something risque and boom a million views. A million downvotes too but whatever, the grading is on views.

Hell there are auto scripts that you can run a set amount of times that clears your browser's cookies so it looks like a new view each time.

MelGoesOnTour: So your grade will be based on how many false views you can generate?




Yes--that actually is an important secret when selling your mad marketing skillz to the client. I work for an agency. You wouldn't believe how many times the PR department asks for vote-stuffing clicks.

That being said, marketing class guy, if you read these posts, I would strongly suggest you show some enthusiasm and a little more preparation. Even if you get clicks by tapping into FARK, which is clever, you need the personality and prep to sell yourself.

But good luck--you'll probably learn it as you go. I wasn't the most Rico Suave guy back in college, either.

Subby, you definitely need to get a new girlfriend.

so, a lot like marketing?
 
2012-12-11 05:11:07 PM
so to start off, Thank you all for clicking and the feedback.

Just to let you all know a few things about it.

The assignment was pretty vague, create a "viral" video review, less than 1 minute in length. The only other parameter was "it doesn't suck".

Given the "it doesn't suck" requirement I thought a vacuum that very much sucks was the way to go.

I am a Computer Science major with an emphasis in Information Security. Marketing has nothing to do with my major, it just happened to be an elective I could squeeze in to an open time slot.

@ LesserEvil, that vid was great. I will keep it in mind if hell freezes over and I have to make another one. Thanks
