An undeniably modern way of marketing cleaning products, the Pine-Sol Pranked commercial is heart-stopping.

Promoting the product effectively without being overly sales-oriented, the cleaning brand has created content that’s fun to watch regardless of whether a viewer buys this kind of product. Creating a sure connection to the audience, this surprising stunt is addicting to watch and is sure to go viral. This approach to advertising proves that not a lot of money is needed to promote a product, and instead the key to success is to create content that resonates with people on a more basic level. There’s nothing more fun than witnessing a light-hearted prank, and this voyeuristic glimpse at a well-executed stunt is undeniably fun to watch.

Perhaps one of the funniest commercials this year, this is a brilliant appropriation of YouTube and is sure to generate Pine-Sol a ton of well-deserved buzz.
