Indian Virals

Ok, one of these links has been sitting in the Drafts folder for close to an year. The other for around 6 months. Old news? About time you checked them out I say!

This video was originally released at, but that site seems to be down now. Thank God (Google?) *pun, nudge-wink* for YouTube, which has helped preserve this little gem. It’s worth the 1 min 25 sec of your time, trust me.

This is the more recent one, still available on the original site. Here’s the 1 min 50 sec video, again via YouTube.

Good to see Indian companies embracing viral marketing and combining it effectively with the more traditional methods. Case in point, I received link to the first time in an “official” mail from the company concerned.

Bruce Willis is the man!

Four (more) reasons why Bruce Willis is the man:

  1. He hangs around web-sites following discussions of his movies.
  2. He participates in the discussions as “Walter B”, sharing his opinion in no uncertain terms.
  3. When someone doubts his identify, he iChats with the doubter as proof.
  4. Last but not the least (in case you didn’t figure out from above) he uses a Mac.

An even bigger Bruce Willis fan now, if that was possible.

Edit – Really looking forward to Die Hard 4 btw. Willis mentions in one of the pages linked above that he agreed that parts 2 and 3 were nowhere near the 1st one in terms of quality, but he believes this one comes close and perhaps even betters the original!!

That remains to be seen of course, but if this movie is even half as good as the first Die Hard (one of the links above has people arguing how can a Die Hard movie be a Die Hard movie if the word fuck is used only twice, to comply with PG13 ratings!), then we are in for a treat, because the original Die Hard remains one of the greatest action movies of all times (and a personal favourite of course).
