I was directed to this hysterical video about Social Media by a fellow Twitterer. It was animated using Xtranormal.com; a website dedicated to helping anyone make a movie through text-to-speech – a revolutionary approach where you type something (the script) and it’s turned into a movie.
The Social Media guy in the movie is “an amalgam of a hundred different half-assed guru-wannabes” that Freelance Journalist Markham Nolan, has encountered online and in real life. Nolan originally created this film to pitch to Ireland’s Small Firms Association (SFA) but instead decided to release it for free on YouTube. Since its YouTube debut about 6 months ago, “The Social Media Guru” has been viewed over 157,000 times.
Get ready to hear a few laugh out loud lines like:
“We are so dumb that we don’t realize that using social media is as easy as pissing on a rock…”
“I’m a fucking awesome social media guru…”
“I’ll hook your Twitter to your Facebook and plug your blog feed into my reader. Then only if you’re good, I will ask my friends to follow you…”
“Have you even read my online internet blog? It’s mega awesome.”
