One of the great things about the Internet is its ability to highlight things that would otherwise go unnoticed. This has had great political and business ramifications, but has mainly impacted electronic media. Shows like LOST, which pack of lot of information into a single show or even scene, can be broken down by one person to be spread through the masses. This trend is perfectly personified by last week’s episode of Community.
For those who watch the NBC comedy, you may have missed an entire story going on in the background featuring Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi). Fortunately, the Internetz have come through and combined all the scenes into one single video, which you can see below. Given the 130,000+ views, I’d say a lot of people missed at least some of the clips.
What do you think of Community’s background story? This is the kind of clever thing that could only work in today’s world, as the guys behind the show must have known people would dive deeper if they saw even just one clip. This also creates free viral marketing, as people discover this and send it to their friends.
