'How to Avoid Getting Hit By a Train' Shows What BlackMoonCGI Can Do

This 'How to Avoid Getting Hit By a Train' Youtube video borrows from the pages of Looney Tunes and leaves audiences scratching their heads as to what they just watched and how it was accomplished. Viewers will be pleased to know that the method of "train-avoiding" in this video takes a surprise twist that I doubt many will have foreseen prior to watching the entire clip.

The puzzling video is the work of Black Moon Studios, who crafted this already viral piece in order to get word out on how awesome its special effects team actually is. Just watch the full video, and if it doesn't have you replaying the thing multiple times, then no amount of Hollywood special effects will please you.

Implications - North American media outlets are saturated with highly derivative advertising campaigns. As such, in order to differentiate themselves from their competition, corporations are now resorting to clever viral marketing ploys disseminated through online video-sharing platforms such as Youtube.
