Flash Mob

Agency Network: 
July 2010

I wanted to pass along this Malibu Flash Mob video that went live on Friday. It was filmed in front of an unsuspecting audience on June 22nd at City Hall Park in NYC, and showcases Malibu's enduring passion for the lively fun that only summer provides. It's being distributed primarily through social-media channels and represents Malibu Rum's continued commitment to interacting with fans through the creation of original web content. It was created by the Thomas Collective, shot by Bluebeard Productions and choreographed by Tweetie, known for her work with Shakira, Jay-Z, and Destiny's Child.

Ambient advertisment created by The Thomas Collective, United States for Malibu, within the category: Alcoholic Drinks.

Empiezan a aburrir ya los flash mob, eran divertidos porque sorprendían. Es ya una estrategia de MK/Media caduca. Y demuestra falta de imaginación por parte de quien la diseña como acción de MK.

Flash mobs are already boring, they were funny because they were caught. It is already a expired MK strategy. And it shows lack of imagination from whoever create it as a MK action.

We're sick of the flash mob, the Mexican masks, the stop motions, of athletes who do impossible things in viral, optical illusions, agencies that hire creative without imagination.
A little bit of courage, please.

I can understand why creators are tired of flash mobs, but what about the average guy? I've never seen a flash mob in real life, nor do I know of anyone who has.

We should start implementing our own Advertising Secret Service to eradicate the term flash mob from agency and client briefs and wish lists. It's the new "viral" video. I guarantee once clients start seeing these they'll want one and then we're all sunk. Though I did like the Malibu Bikini Girls in the fountain. Wardrobe gets an A+

Let's keep advertising fun
