I am the founder of http://www.BlenderBabes.com and we are creating our very first “Will It Blend” style videos.
I’m hoping to get your thoughts/feedback on these 2 videos!!!
We have blended Trump and Hilary dolls with the goal of going viral and to drive traffic to our website and youtube channel (ideally capturing opt ins and new subscribers on YouTube and Facebook).
These 2 videos are almost there. I think they need a little improvement, but I’m not a video editor and am not sure what feedback to provide this editor.
ANY FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED!

Thank you in advance for taking the time to help!

Uhm, so this is “a thing”? The topic (of throwing something into a blender) and the visuals caught on film backing it up are neither interesting, compelling or funny (sorry to say). I say this from the point of view that you wish to go viral. At best, this should be cut down to a minute or less, with faster cuts taken from multiple cameras, and some *hilarious* humor thrown in. The girl should be frickin’ hilarious, as should the subject matter. I feel I should be rolling on the floor in laughter (virally speaking). Instead, I found myself jumping ahead in the video waiting for something to happen; anything at all. Sorry if I’m being too blunt, but personally I just don’t think this works, not in concept, nor in shooting, or editing, or talent chosen (the girl), or in subject matter. I’ve had many clients come to me over the years saying that they want to make a viral video. You don’t make a viral video – they are made by people who watch and share them. Blending a plastic representation of a popular figure ripped from the newspapers – just ain’t all that. Ok, that said, I’m going back to watching kitten videos now…
