This is the first weekly instalment of five of the best videos we’ve seen on the Internet this week at TNFY. Some are old; some are new. Some are ‘viral’; some have had only a few hundred views. Some are serious; some are ridiculous.
1. If McDonald’s Advertised Like Apple
Released by ‘BuzzFeedVideo’ in October 2015, this clever video satirises Apple’s marketing videos for their new products. BuzzFeedVideo has over 9 million subscribers, so it’s unsurprising that a video as witty and clever as this has been viewed just short of 3 million times on YouTube alone. They’ve even managed to perfectly imitate Jonathan Ive’s dulcet yet hypnotic voice.
2. Coca Cola Creates First Ever Drinkable Advertising Campaign
Sticking with the theme of Advertising and big brands, this video, made by Coca Cola but released by Dipdrop Branding Solution explains the brand’s clever campaign. The video was released in June 2015, and although the campaign seemed to be exciting and different, the video has only collected 160,000 views on YouTube.
3. Maps That Prove You Don’t Really Know Earth
This video was released in February 2015 by BuzzFeedBlue – another YouTube channel from BuzzFeed who describe themselves as ‘Bite-size knowledge for a big world’. This video is particularly engaging thanks to its great animation and surprisingly gripping content.
4.One of those days 3 – Candide Thovex
Our 4th video comes from a man whose Wikipedia page describes him as a ‘French professional skier, filmmaker and entrepreneur’. This video followed his aptly named ‘One of those days’ and ‘One of those days 2’ – with the latter raking in over 20 million views on YouTube. Candide’s creative approach to film making, with this dramatic, dream-like sequence is mesmerising and certainly worth a watch.
5. Changing The World Starts With You
Our 5th and final video this week was made and released by The Huffington Post. The video is of an interview with ‘inspirational philosopher’ Jay Shetty where he quotes Albert Einstein, Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King and oddly enough Will Smith. Shetty explains the flaws with the modern world by remarking that, “the paradox of our times is that we have more degrees but less sense. More knowledge but less judgement. More experts but less solutions.” He therefore suggests that it’s down to individuals to reverse the ‘paradox’ of the modern world.
