Everyone loves spaghetti

Every once in a while I will stumble upon a video that would be the a great foundation for a commercial video (or an entire campaign.)

Viral commercial spaghetti Joeys Pasta

Everyone loves spaghetti.  Everyone loves pets. Let’s put it together.

Take a watch of this video. Take 3 “watches” of the video.  It’s simple. Entertaining.  The sound of the dog chomping the spaghetti is great.  The spaghetti is the center of the attention.  There’s something special and real about the video. With a little editing, adding a brand image/message at the end, and  the proper viral seeding, this could be an awsome campaign.

Drinking With Bob is interesting example of building an online brand that is “real” and not afraid to take a stand.

From DrinkingWithBob.com:

Bob Thompson a.k.a. Drinking With Bob is a comic and TV personality from New York City. Based in Queens, Bob performs his comedy routines, rants and original music in clubs and bars throughout much of the Metropolitan area. He also produces, writes and stars in his own TV show called ‘Drinking With Bob’ on Queens Public Access. The show has been airing for 7 years and has gained a legion of loyal and devoted cult fans who tune in each week to experience the RANTS , see the comic sketches and hear music.

I enjoy Bob’s videos. I don’t always agree with them, but I do, through the screaming and yelling,  listen to what he is saying. Consistency. Bob is Bob.

Through the years he has shown to be sincere and real.  He has build his brand and leveraged it into a gig on WAC Radio in NY.

Congratulations Bob.  Stay real.

I had not heard of Stride Gum before this video.  I guess it was money well spent. Definitely outside the box at the time. Watch.
