Asking for input from your fans and followers is no special thing these days but to have your fanbase write you an ad is a bold video marketing move.
And that’s exactly what DirecTV have done in their new online video. The film follows a story-telling approach with each line of the tale submitted via Twitter.
The premise of the story is that by keeping cable TV and cable-guys we open ourselves up to a world of pain – and lab experiments.
The style of the film is much akin to a late night US TV sketch format with some nice animation thrown in for good measure, making it an all-together quite zany and amusing piece.
