Campaign Title: Fyrestock by Shutterstock


What It Is

Fyrestock by Shutterstock is a tongue-in-cheek video poking fun at 2017’s scam festival Fyre Festival. A nonsensical promo video was used to attract influencers and guests to a festival on an idyllic island that was never going to happen.

Shuttershock created a very similar version of the promo video using $2,000 worth of stock video from their website, showing people that high-end video can be created on a small budget.

Why We Like It

Shutterstock did two great things with this video. They managed to quickly respond to a big news story and went viral with over 2 million views in the first week. They also managed to show viewers the quality and depth of content available on their site without being sales-heavy.

How We’d Add To It

Keep the parodies coming. By quickly responding to trending videos and news stories, Shutterstock can show users that it is possible to produce out high-end video content at a blistering pace.
