Very funny and it works perfectly for these websites like AotW but I don't see this go viral - so unless they make some TVC out of this or something else, I don't think it'll fully work as an ad. But nice idea :)

How is this an outdoor campaign? This looks more like a viral spot (which would never really go viral) or a TVC.

Like the idea behind it, but it probably didn't work.

It's good, but everyone else said who is going to see this?

You guys are all confusing the general population with the calibre of people who will attend this kind of event; these are quality short films for the discerning viewer. This campaign is not meant to impress ad critics the world over. It is meant to garner attention and talk by its target audience - and it will. And if you can capture the attention of your target audience? Well then - voila! You've succeeded.

It's a good idea that lives only within the internet.

If this is an outdoor, it's terrible. Barely no one saw/or would see this, if any. Unless you would repeat this 100 times a day.
Kinda boring strategy and concept, as well. "Make something shorter", because it's a short film festival!? Meh...

Why did the word viral come up on this thread?
Your grandma makes it viral when she will send this to you,
to her coffee-sippin' friends and to her secret lover.
And also to the cable guy she likes so much.
