PGM Artists Parodies YouTube With PhilTube

philtube.jpg

Fans of YouTube may not have to worry about their baby getting sucked up into the Google void and corporatized because now we have PhilTube. Some dude named Phil has created a YouTube look alike and has videos up that poke fun at popular videos such as the Star Wars Kid and LonelyGirl15. Of course, this isn't the next YouTube at all. It's the creation of Phil McIntyre to parody YouTube, poke fun at social media and to promote PGM Artists, his company that represents production companies to agencies and media companies.

If you didn't know who Phil McIntyre or PGM were, you'd have to do a bit of digging to see what PhilTube is all about but as promotions go, we applaud it. There's no fist bumping here - although, perhaps PhilTube should spoof the Agency.com video - and the content is amusing enough. We're told Hart+Larsson is behind he creative on this one.

Hart+Larsson did the creative. It is rather representative of their style and tone.

So painfully close to what I witness every day at the office.. oh the irony, the poor man I have in mind will probably laugh and miss the point when he sees it.

This is like The Office meets YouTube. I love it. I want more. Can we have more?

Back to blogging...it's AWESOME.
