The friend who forwarded this final entry into Adidas’ Adicolor viral campaign on YouTube wrote, “viral advertising that I can relate to in a way that doesn’t make me want to buy “product” at all.”
Yep. That about sums it up. Even if it is compelling enough to make you spend tons of time with the brand, you don’t feel as if you’re really spending any time at all with the brand. That doesn’t mean the films aren’t terribly compelling. But are they terribly compelling advertising, or is viral getting too soft?
