Aside from eating dogs and occasionally making good cellphones, those crafty Koreans at Samsung also know a thing or two about viral marketing. In April this year Samsung and a company called The Viral Factory released a video to shill the Samsung i8910 (OnmiaHD). It features a dude unboxing his i8910 and showing off the HD recording abilities of his new handset; he performs a trick in the process and challenges the viewers to guess how it’s done.
This clip was shot on an I8910 HD phone, a new camera phone just released by Samsung with an 8 megapixel camera that can actually record and output video in HD format. It was shot in one take, with no post production or special effects of any kind. Everything you see here was done “in-camera”. Our challenge to you is to figure out how we did it.
Some of you may not bite this little bit of viral bait, but it’s certainly worked well, receiving over a million views and almost 2000 comments. Check out the video below or watch it in HD at YouTube.
Let us know in the comments if you know how they did it. And then see the secret behind the video after the jump.
Here’s the making of the trick video.
