More design cliches

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.

The original piece is published on McSweeney’s: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/this-is-a-generic-brand-video

Narrated by Dallas McClain.
