    That video is great. I actually started watching it thinking to myself I knew what it was going to be like (Im not sure why) but it kept me watching for the full three minutes and actually made me want to do something, so I was a little disappointed that there was no real strong call to action at the end. Great piece of work though

    That is a very good point! Just like direct mail or any communication, online videos need a good call to action at the end.
