Following on from my previous post Top 10 slide design cliches, it appears the same principle regarding stock images applies to stock footage (video clips). I found this post on dissolve.com: This is a generic brand video. Great tongue in cheek video narrating the words written by Kendra Eash and it emphasizes the points I made in the previous post completely. Well done to both Kendra Eash and to Dissolve. Absolutely perfect!
This Is a Generic Brand Video is a generic brand video of “This Is a Generic Brand Video,” written by Kendra Eash for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. No surprise, it’s made entirely with stock footage.
