Sometimes, marketing is suave and overproduced, the results of millions of dollars of epic planning and execution. Other times, you just disguise an ultra-high definition television as a window, and laugh at someone's sheer horror.

I don't really have a broader point about the complexities of marketing, the differences between the advertising needs of small and large companies, or the role of humor in creating something that markets by entertaining people and encouraging them to share it forward.

I'm sure there are points to be made about the utility of virality in marketing. I'm sure we could talk about how stuffy old commercials that just list a bunch of features are giving way to fun ways to illustrate a products flagship value.

But this isn't a marketing class, and it's not even a straightforward business blog.

Nope, this time I'm just going to present the video to you so you can be the judge.

On the one hand, I would be furious if I thought I was at a real job interview, especially in today's market.

On the other hand, I would sure be glad it was just a prank.
