This Is a Generic Brand Video, by Dissolve

We think first of vague words that are synonyms for progress And pair them with footage of a high-speed train. Science is doing lots of stuff That may or may not have anything to do with us. See how this guy in a lab coat holds up a
beaker? That means we do research. Here’s a picture of DNA. There are a shitload of people in the world, Especially in India. See how we’re part of the global economy? Look at those farmers in China. But we also do business in the U.S.A. Or want you to think we do. Check out this wind energy thing in Indiana, And this blue collar guy with dirt on his face. Phew. Also, we care about the environment, loosely. Here’s some powerful, rushing water. And people planting trees. Our policies could be related to these panoramic views of Costa Rica. In today’s high-speed environment, Stop-motion footage of a city at night With cars turning quickly Makes you think about doing things efficiently And time passing. Lest you think we’re a faceless entity, Look at all these attractive people. Here’s some of them talking and laughing. And close-ups of hands passing canned goods to each other In a setting that evokes community service. Equality, innovation, Honesty and advancement … Are all words we choose from a list. Our profits are awe-inspiring. Like this guy who’s looking up and pointing at a skyscraper or a kite While smiling and explaining something to his child. Using a specific ratio of Asian people to black people to women to white men, we want to make sure we represent your needs. and interests. Or at least a version of your skin color, in our ads. Did we put a baby in here? What about an ethnic old man whose wrinkled smile represents the happiness and wisdom of the poor? Yep.

  1. Incredible! This really helps take my mind off the work/stress/deadline side o'things a bit. Thanks guys, no links to sign up from here?

  2. "stop motion footage of a city at night' … Does not exist in this video.  What you have, is 'Time Lapse'.Stop motion is what you have for things like Claymation video (Gumby) and the like.  Time Lapse, is really slow recording cameras so you can display long periods of time in a few seconds.   Sorry, but someone was wrong on the internet.  It had to be fixed.

  3. I love this video so much and it makes me laugh every time! On the one hand, it is so cold and cynical, but at the same time it is superficially emotional and really well done. Epic success!!

  4. Boost you views with this Check it out there is little to no risk. If you don't like it you get double your money back!!!!

  5. For a superb Leading Brand placement opportunity on London's river Thames

  6. They would never build in the jacked-up advertising costs into the price of the product as paid by me the consumer, would they?

  7. Excellent. Its visual spam. And completely forgettable as it blends in with the rest of the garbage “bums” think are good.

  8. I kid you not i know people that dont work on the healthcare side that come up with generic stuff like this and call it good work.


    Though I would like to add another way, perhaps a much easier and higher quality one to get Full HD stock videos. If you’re interested in more than 18 000 Full HD stock videos (250 added every month) I suggest you head over here RIGHT NOW, while the package is still up:

    Don’t forget to let me know what you think.

  10. Wait it says generic right on the title? No joke though, people cobble together b roll like this and call it “good”. Hahaha.

  11. Best thing I’ve ever seen/ the 212 people that disliked represent the whole class of douche bags that this video makes fun of lol

  12. we knew that we should respect someone not only from their status but we should respect them from what they got.. this video is cool i like it …

  13. This narration is killing me! They forgot to include PC openly-LGBT population representation … or what the heck they are called … whatever — should the narrator have said.

  14. "Science is doing lots of stuff" — Very Generic statement and then the woman in lab coat inflates a rubber glove — representing how much these ads are related to the generic products they promote.

  15. "Our profits are awe-inspiring" and then the attractive lady lifts up the fake and optimistic chart-vector … just as it were a scene from Wolf of the Wall Street when they promote something completely based on thin air.

  16. This is a generic comment from a generic channel with generic videos commenting on a generic video by a generic channel with generic videos about generic videos.

  17. hello sorry to be a disturbance but i sent you guys an email to see if i could use some footage of this whilst giving you credits

  18. You had me until, ".. There are a shitload of people in the world, especially in India.."

    I mean, that might fly in a comedy club. Or the unfortunate result, might have been a Michael Richards type scenario.

    It's certainly along the lines of the H&M, "monkey" faux pas.
