“In all of their brilliance, NASA seems to have forgotten to share their hopes and dreams in a way the public can relate to, leaving one of humanities grandest projects with terrible PR and massive funding cuts. I have a lot of ideas for a NASA marketing campaign,” writes Redditor rgower. So, he took it upon himself to advertise for them.
And in response to his video another Redditor, epicause, created their own advertisement for NASA.
I think both are quite good, with the shorter video getting me a bit more pumped up (maybe it’s the use of Arcade Fire) and the longer video being a bit more inspirational. Still, NASA would be wise to put a small team together to make better use of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to educate and inspire people. Nobody really knows what NASA does, other than “science” and now is as good a time as any to peel the curtain back and show people how NASA affects their lives.
