A Dramatic Surprise on a Quiet Squareis a video produced by Turner Benelux which takes place in a little town in Belgium. Here is the full description by the owner:
“To launch the high quality TV channel, TNT in Belgium, we placed a big red push button on an average Flemish square of an average Flemish town. A sign with the text Push to add dramainvited people to use the button. And then we waited…”
I actually found out about this video via a friend on Twitter. When I see someone make a post/tweet that has something along the lines of “This is hilarious” along with a video link, I”m usually curious and get excited to watch it. This is definitely one I am glad I clicked on.
From the beginning I was intrigued. Very dramatic, intense music over simple text made me extremely curious about what I was going to see. After the text, a few shots of a button with a sign that said Push Here for Drama were shown. The button was inspected by people that surrounded the area. The crowd grew increasingly interested in what would happen if the button was pushed. The build-up was perfect. You couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen. Once the first person pushed the button, the music stopped and sirens went off. I knew the video was going to be awesome.
Well, that’s it from me. I won’t go into detail about what happened (check out the video below), but it kept my interest the entire time (all 140 seconds or so). The video was a perfect combination of action and people’s reactions. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud in my office.
So sit back, watch, learn and get inspired. Make sure to be on the lookout for other inspiring video content through social media and set out to shoot something creative of your own!
