I just found this on Facebook from one of my friends’ “shared a link”. The video was based on the now-pretty-famous Chinese movie called Ip Man, a Wing Chun master from China. For the first minute or so, it plays just like a regular youtube video but that’s when it starts to become interactive. The video requires you to press the pause button so that the villain can stop moving so fast (I don’t want to spoil too much detail of the video). Then the next villain shows up and attacks our protagonist with her loud voice, you now have to press the volumn button to mute her voice. Finally you need to turn back time to find out the traitor by clicking the time bar back to the first minute or so.
The movie is obviously a PR created by Wing Heong BBQ Meat, a company which sells dried meat. I shouldn’t be surprised by such interactivities, afterall, youtube uses Adobe Flash and we know Flash can be very interactive and engaging. Just look at how many Flash based game sites out there. But I look forward to see more of this type of youtube videos where you get to interact with the video and become part of it. Again its nothing new but companies should start using more often.

And NO, they are not paying me for posting this. I thought this video was rather interesting so that’s why I’m sharing with you guys.
