If you’ve tuned in to the Olympics in recent days, you’ve probably noticed those inspiring commercials of Facebookers performing daring feats of Facebooking. The thrilling images of Facebookers tirelessly honing their craft have sent untold numbers of viewers flocking to the social media site to discover how they might become a part of this movement spanning the globe.
“Well, when you see what some of these elite level Facebookers are capable of, you’re just like, ‘Wow! How do they do that?’” said Jim McKay, Director of Television Advertising for the company. “We’re out to capture that TV viewing couch potato who’s been too lazy to try out our platform, and we think wowing them with a bit of the old razzle-dazzle is the way to get them to come onboard.”
Indeed, the Facebookers featured in these ads make it look effortless, but often years of hard work and tireless striving for perfection have gone into achieving that level of excellence.
“Most people don’t realize these Facebookers fail more often than they succeed. But when they do finally get it right, it’s like poetry or beautiful music. That’s what a Facebook legend looks like,” said McKay. “It’s the thrill of likes and shares and the agony of getting dogpiled. It all comes through in these commercials, and we think it’s a sure bet to lure people away from the boob-tube, out of the sweaty gyms and bug infested parks and into Facebooking where the world belongs.”
