UPDATE 3pm 26 March 2014: Views at 140 000 today:
UPDATE 11pm 25 March 2014: The video creator replied to my Youtube Comment and said that the video was featured as PICK of THE DAY on Vimeo. This has helped the video up to 11,500 views from 1270 yesterday.
UPDATE 9PM 25 MARCH 2014: So the video had 1257 views yesterday, today is is at 5563. That is a 4000 view growth rate in 24 hours. At that trend they will hit 40 000 in 10 days. But the growth should be exponential so I predict 1 000 000 views by Wednesday April 2nd 2014.

This advert comments on modern day multi-national companies, and how their adverts might not be as authentic as you might think.

Ok HIPSTERS before you assassinate me with your comments just take a second to study your favourite brands. Those brands all play in on your ALTERNATIVE (haha) culture. They create the ALTERNATIVE culture with strange patters, retro looking fashion and advertising that emote the idea of being NON MAIN STREAM, of being a hipster….
