boring go pro video

Toronto filmmaker makes most boring viral video ever

A Toronto filmmaker's musing on mundanity has somehow become a viral hit. Daniel Williams parody of a GoPro YouTube video in which he records himself performing a series of boring office tasks has racked up over a million views since it was posted yesterday.

The parody is pulled off so well that one would think that the video really is an add for GoPro until watching for long enough to realize that the office tasks aren't about to be replaced by skydiving, white water rafting or some other action sport. Nope, it's just filing, photocopy, and stamp licking.

Set to just-right electronic music (by London Ontario-based OVERWERK), the short video somehow does pick up momentum thanks to the soundtrack and a series of quick cuts. Perhaps this is one for all the film students out there.
