Here’s An Advertising Style You Could Use

This YouTube Ad is worthy of a look. Forget about the message. I want you to see the style of this commercial. This is a style you could easily adopt for a client. Not at all hard to do. Green screen is the most challenging aspect. Then look at the video that is on the green screen. A wacko kind of character with music, fast cutting and big titles. Also notice the way swear words are intentionally deleted in an obvious and funny way. There’s a warning “This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.” I am certain this line is just meant to entice you to share the ad. Believe me I’m not promoting their business, I’d like to see you use this style in a project that pays you.

Of course, you wouldn’t use this style in every kind of video situation. Non-profits would probably not appreciate this style. But for companies that sell product and ideas this style could work.
