Cavemen Prove Focus Groups Kill Great Ideas

focus_groups_suck.jpg

These two videos from DraftFCB Hamburg examine the idiocy of focus groups and why it's silly to rely too heavily on them. In the videos, one caveman moderator and three caveman panelists turn great ideas like fire and the wheel into useless inventions no one would ever need. It's humorous enough and hits home perfectly the notion a bunch of random people will, undoubtedly, kill a good idea every time.

Oddly, this video feels just like it came out of a board room. Very trite and I think maybe it lost something in the execution. The idea still rings true but not as powerfully or as funny as it could have.

Fine but don't these folk just shove junk mail through people's doors?

What's the point of the video?
