WTF UGC

This is what YouTube was made for! Comedians empowered by online video to make UGC that’s actually entertaining. A comedy duo from North Carolina must have seen their fair share of zombie marketing on local television, so they made a sublimely surreal satire that Barack Obama would approve of…

It was shown on local television, but online popularity and the resulting news coverage yielded exposure of incalculable value. It recently peaked online, likely due to the drop in media interest (its over by the time CNN does a story).

Any decent online video campaign needs a making of and this one’s no exception.

This and many other infomercial parodies were created by comedy duo and “Internetainers” Rhett and Link. They kind of remind me of Flight of the Conchords back when they were still doing stand up in New Zealand and making YouTube rap video parodies of Lord of the Rings. Music and comedy; goes together like chocolate fondue and marshmallows.
