My first reaction to a YouTube commercial created by The Law Office of John Phillips looked something like this …
For about two minutes and thirty seconds, my face alternated from stunned amazement to confused amusement.
The video, which you can watch below, tells the sad story of a Weeble Wobble (yes, those lovable toys of yesteryear that wobble but don’t fall down) being wrongly accused of a DWI. Phillips emerges as the heroic lawyer that can save our protagonist from injustice.
Words do not describe the … see my photo above.
I applaude Phillips for taking a risk. He’s using social media in a fun way to promote his law firm. This is not a marketing approach I would recommend for all firms, but DWI clients might appreciate the humor, and doing something different and refreshing on YouTube can sometimes bring in new clients. Let’s just hope the Weebles pay their fees on time..
One tip for Phillips when he shoots Barbie and Ken’s Big Divorce: keep the YouTube video to two minutes, tops (this one runs at three minutes and thirty seconds, the first two minutes of which can probably be condensed to 30 seconds to move faster).
Enjoy the video, and feel free to share your stunned responses below.
