Update on Proposal Video
02/12/2010 § 3 Comments
So I called it. Sort of. The proposal video I mentioned a few weeks back is in fact a staged proposal. The proposal was conducted by Thinkmodo, a business specializing in marketing.
” Thinkmodo founder Michael Krivicka reveals:
“Since viral videos are both art and science, we wanted to merge both elements to introduce predictability to the videos’ success. As part of our ’study’ we staged an elaborate marriage proposal in Central Park and fused tech and romance to see how well each would be received if merged. Would men be drawn by the awesome iPhone app (which unfortunately doesn’t exist) or would women cry and wonder why Frank threw the ring (which was never in the box)? Since our video was covered by outlets like Glamour as well as CNET, we learned that, contrary to conventional wisdom, content can be made to appeal to both sexes without lessening the appeal to each.”“
I knew this video was too good to be true. Here it is again, just in case you missed it.
