    hey guys, got a message in my inbox from any one of a number of lists i subscribe to. shows a video for some "push button" IM automation tool, i don't know, i didn't even read the sales page to see what it was about.

    but the video they put at the top is HILARIOUS. and i feel like any IMer can appreciate this, especially the slow motion-zoomed into the person pushing a single button. hilarious.

    my apologies if this is someone's website from here. you never know. but it's funny.

    wouldn't have been shocked. perhaps funnier still is if you scroll down a little bit (i have now taken a few minutes to scan the sales copy) he uses a Simpson's reference to legitimize his offer (check it out).

    i'm all for the simpsons.. but .. really?

    What if I have stumps for arms and it's kind of tricky hitting just one key. Can I outsource the actual button pushing?

    What you haven't all realised is the power of viral marketing.... its just happened infront of your own eyes right here and already from this one person seeing this site now over 8 people in this short time have seen his sales pages and more than likely read some or all of the sales page to find out what its all about.... now some of these people that do that (especially being reffered by a friend) will actually now go and buy this too.

    All in all you should see these people as a genius and they actually know there stuff... their product may be crap but still they will make alot of money from this and all because of a video.

    the majority of the people looking at that video (his target audience) PROBABLY don't belong to a major marketing forum though. and wouldn't point it out for laugh's sake. and none of us here are going to buy it; so sure, i drove people to look at the site.. but to make fun of it. visitors, sure; buyers, no.

    i'm not gonna argue against viral marketing, it's obviously powerful; and i'm not gonna argue that he'll probably make a ton of money on the page anyways. but its still a funny video. and it's funny because it doesn't really look like it was meant to be; it looks like it was meant to appeal to the mostly retarded class of person who would buy such a product.
