Forget about Rebecca Black and the Beeb, this guy has the right idea. Taking asking a girl to the prom to a whole new level, this kid did everything right:
- He impressed the girl with talent and risking shame in front of the class.
- He wrote a pretty decent song that required the use of his homies (who were probably a source of extra confidence, too)
- He had the whole thing videoed and uploaded to YouTube.
The “awwwww!” factor is quite high, meaning that the video is likely to go viral and his talent as both songwriter and singer. While his initial objective to get a date for the prom seems to have been accomplished, I hope this kid gets a lot more out of his efforts.
Yesterday’s post featured a review of the Super Bowl ads rated best by mrmerlot.com. Today, we look at the runner-ups.
The Super Bowl XLV ads that won mrmerlot.com’s “best of” rating needed no explanation since the quality of the story and message was enough to prove their worth. This second string of nine ads certainly has plenty of quality comedic delivery. But in an age of commercial-free Tivo and online streaming media viewing, getting 30 seconds to woo a consumer is golden. So while these product ads were good, the storyline in each left something to be desired.
