    Disney Trolls Youtube to promote Disney Cruises?

    Ok, first, you aren't going to want to watch all 10 minutes of the video. You'll get the idea in the first 30 seconds.

    However, note the link in the lower right hand corner of the video.

    Disney is trolling youtube now to get views?

    http://youtu.be/Uo3FGcNFcOc

    This has to be one of the most annoying things I've watched in a while. Someone needs to remind Disney that youtube isn't ytmnd (you're the man now dog!).

    Re: Disney Trolls Youtube to promote Disney Cruises?

    No surprise here -- Disney's Social Media Group has become notorious for aggressively trolling, shilling and exploiting every nook and cranny on the interwebz. It's annoying and embarrassing to everyone -- except, of course, to Disney's Social Media Group itself, who continue to prove that they have no shame... and even less taste.

    I don't understand what you mean by trolling... It's a Disney produced video posted on a clearly DISNEY owned and published youtube channel. It's not shilling, it's not trolling, its disney marketing on youtube. Which is what it does with all it's videos it posted on their blog and elsewhere.. oh and uses similar content on the Disney Channel too.

    I'm not understanding your 'concern'..

    Um, it's not like this is the main promotional video. It's supposed to supplement and ride on the coattails of a popular YouTube gag. Obviously Disney doesn't expect anyone to want to go on a cruise after that specific video. It's the other 8 or so videos that do the advertising. This is what's known as a joke.

    I would play it to my kids.. after being on a disney cruise, I think it accurately shows what a kids perspective is about while poking some fun at it too. It's not a gag.. it actually is practical for that audience.

    As far as I'm concerned, I only see Disney doing the same stupid thing that ( regrettably ) the rest of the internet community is doing; making dumb videos that no one gets but that get a wide amount of distribution. I'd hope that Disney would stop doing it, but first humanity has to stop responding so well to it on their own. ( Everything from HampsterDance up to more modern idiocy like "Jar of dirt". ) If people stopped linking these dumb things, maybe they'd go away. As evidence, this video was linked here and got ??? views as a result.
