How They Did It: Samsung’s i8910 Omnia HD Viral Video

When the above video came out last month, Samsung issued a challenge:

GUESS HOW WE DID THIS. This clip was shot on an I8910 HD phone, a new camera phone just released by Samsung with an 8 megapixel camera that can actually record and output video in HD format. It was shot in one take, with no post production or special effects of any kind. Everything you see here was done “in-camera”. Our challenge to you is to figure out how we did it. Hint: it’s worth watching in HD…

Now, there were some people who were all like “Bah, this is just viral bait and I’m not biting”, but you have to admit, it worked well. The video has been viewed almost 800,000 times, and there are thousands of people commenting on it. So kudos to them. Remember the candy bar, Kudos? Remember them? They were good, what ever happened to them? Do they even exist still?

Anyway, here’s how they made the video. Check it:

Jones’ Big Ass Truck Rental & Storage Facility Drunk Discount Sale

According to the Jones’ Big Ass Truck Rental & Storage Facility website, Toby Jones is an aspiring rapper turned “street pharmaceutical sales rep” turned warehouse owner. His current warehouse supposedly cost him 1 dollar, and he’ll store whatever needs storing. Anything from Firebirds to elephants. The thing is, it’s not for real.

I called the number a few times, and nobody ever answered. It has an away message saying it’s Jones’ Big Ass Truck Rental & Storage, but it’s a cell phone, and the mailbox was full. Plus the website directs viewers to this website, belonging to a sketch comedy group called Big Dog Eat Child. So it looks like Jones’ Bis Ass Truck Rental & Storage is a clever viral marketing campaign for a comedy troupe. Well done guys. Unfortunately for them, the Jones Storage commercial is the funniest video on the site. See for yourself:
