Indecent Completion: playing hardball with the big boys
Its midterm and the quarter is going fast. Some of the student videos are really well done. Many of the student videos are doing quite well, but they did not get the hits I was expecting. I guess that the election just reached a saturation point where it was difficult for a student video to break though the commercially made and new worthy stuff that has flooded the internet. We had much better luck with our parodies of the super bowl style commercials in January because people seek those out. With a constant flood of political media, funny student videos just seemed to be lot harder to promote. I guess it is also difficult to compete with Comedy Central (http://www.comedycentral.com/), Bill Maher (http://www.billmaher.com/) and the late night pundits (http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live/), too.
