Simon’s Cat series are hilarious animated shorts that will hit home with any cat owner, and indeed with most people who have ever seen a cat in action. You know what I’m talking about!
This D&D dice video is a fun and funny promotional video. This shows “the” Balthazar explaining why it’s so important to have D&D dice (so you too can play like a champion) and compares D&D dice disparagingly to other sissy games that use sissy dice, unlike the strong firm bardy musical D&D dice.
He then rattles off a list of feats he has accomplished in Dungeons & Dragons games using D&D dice — one dice at a time. He starts with the four-sided dice and moves his way steadily on up to the 20-sided dice. This is a fun character and a fun way that companies can promote their products in video without making us fall asleep.
Even within the television advertising world advertisers learned long ago the value of making funny ads — specifically, people will talk about them. They’ll tell their friends about this funny commercial they saw. In the online advertising world this is even more important, because unlike tv commercials we have a choice about whether or not we’re going to watch this D&D dice video. If we aren’t entertained or enlightened, we’re moving on, because you can bet that there’s going to be a lot more videos out there that are worthy of our time.
So well done Awesome Dice — this D&D dice video is indeed video worthy.
