AngryTeacher: Think about it, your grade is based on how many people you can con into watching this. It has nothing to do with quality.

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

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

AngryTeacher: 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.

so, a lot like marketing?

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.

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.

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

theesir: 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.
