OK, Mashable, you got me

A couple of times a week I venture on to the geek sites like Mashable, Wired, and Engadget. Then there are the forums, god knows there are a ton of them out there. For months now, I have been trying to avoid the temptation of Mashable’s “Top Photo and Video Galleries.” Usually, I stay away from these. However, when you’re bored and the temptation is there, you breakdown.
The two lists you might want to check out is “15 Fab Flash Mob Videos on YouTube,” and “10 Excellent Examples of Guerrilla Marketing Campaigns.”
Flash mobs are defined by Wikipedia as, “A large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse.” Don’t worry these are safe to view. You have to hand it to the people who put these together. As you’ll see, they involve a lot time, people, and effort.
Guerrilla marketing is defined by Wikipedia as, “Campaigns that are unexpected and unconventional, potentially interactive, and consumers are targeted in unexpected places.” Unlike flash mobs, these videos tend hit you with an advertisement without knowing it.
I know if you click on just one link I know you will watch them all. Do you enjoy these types of videos? Sound off in the comments!
