Perhaps summing up this Mike’s Golf Club Shop ad the owner, Mike Mixson, shot with his camera phone, YouTube commenter, VicInNocal wrote, “That’s what all ads should be – just something quick that describes what it is you do or what service you offer, and where people can find you. Not some forced & lame attempt at being funny or groveling for customers like most modern day commercials do. This ad reminds me of “Head On, apply directly to the forehead. Head On, apply directly to the forehead.”
And Regina Rae chimed in,”Um, did I just sell my golf clubs to Mike? YES! Guy is a true entrepreneur. He doesn’t need a camera crew or a production team to run his commercials. All he needs is his Iphone3, a sunny day and his charm and personality. The rest is internet gold.”
The ad is running locally on television. Yes, it’s not just a YouTube thing.
And that’s really all there is to say about that. Sometimes simplicity is the best solution.
