Dorota Smaggia, MD France for Unruly Media, took to the stage last week for an ultra-instructive MIPCube Talk. She pointed out that generation Y watches 3 billion hours of video per month right now; but that content isn’t always what you’d expect.
The myths she went on to debunk were:
Myth #1 – Content has to be funny? NO!
Myth #2 – The shorter the better? NO!
Myth #3 – Only big brands can make a big splash? NO!
Myth #4 – Social videos should only evoke obvious emotions such as happiness: NO!
Myth #5 – Emotive ads cannot be also information? NO!
Smaggia screened a number of videos to illustrate her points, including this – hilarious – most-watched UGC (user-generated content) video of 2013 so far:
