You don’t have to be an Alamo Drafthouse loving former Austinite such as myself to have seen this video.
It started for me on facebook, with a few friends posting the link. Then came the likes, the comments, the re-sharing.
Whether you think it’s real or not, funny or not, there’s one thing you can’t deny: it’s viral.
I got a link from someecards.
People I know that have never been to Austin are begging for Alamo Drafthouse to open near them.
Right now, the video is close to 100,000 on youtube, which I’ve seen isn’t a perfect representation of hits, meaning it’s even more popular than that.
What an awesome use of social media to capture an audience and get people talking (just don’t do it during a movie). 🙂
What do you think? Love it? Or pure cheese?
