Viral Elements: Randomness, Humour, Tongue in cheek, Unexpectedness
A great example of a startup company recognizing the opportunity that viral marketing has for their business…at a relatively tiny cost. A parody of the typically American sales video, Mike the founder, explains what DollarShaveClub.com is while taking swipes at Gillette & co, using a kid to demo, joking about his polio ridden Popop, swiping a machete, making jobs… and of course saves you $$$. Finishing with a rave with a money fight and an employee dressed as a bear.
The modern 20somthing year old has a very short attention span. This is the tactic of classic randomness keeping attention and surprising the user. The Old Spice tactic.
Watch the view numbers rocket.
