Filmed on a subway in L.A., the Craigslist Missed Connection video shows great ways a guy can learn how to pick up a girl, in a non-creepy way.
Based off the long running UCB sketch show 'Banging My Dick Against a Wall,' this viral video features stars from '30 Rock,' 'The Office,' and 'Wet Hot American Summer DP.'
Implications - Humorous videos like this resonate with viewers on account of their charm and comedic wit. More than anything else however, they represent how advertisements that follow in their example (rather than attempting to be overtly preachy) are far more likely to connect with young viewers. Because younger demographics now make up a more sizable share of active consumers than ever before, this is a lesson no company can afford to ignore.
