Appealing to the Lowest Common Denominator

April 1, 2010 Leave a comment

I received over 5,000 views (with 24 hours) for a short video reuploaded on youtube. It shows a chatroulette session (most likely partially faked) of two girls refusing to flash their boobs resulting in a bird being eaten by a python.

My guess: the prerecorded python clip would have stopped before the bird gets eaten if the gals flashed their boobs. If they did not, the clip was run till the end and they saw the bird being eaten.

Maybe.. something similar could be done with newborn bunny rabbits and pythons.

I did not promote it beyond facebook, my blog and a couple of other blogs. Most views came from people searching for that clip and forwarding it to others.

Nobody went broke by appealing to the lowest common denominator.

Here is a link to the clip.. again!

I have always believed that the future of human civilization depends on the “disappearance” of rent seeking professions and livelihoods.
