This video is different from my regular YouTube videos, but I wanted to share an inside look at what it took to create a viral video for Squatty Potty.
Usually when viewers watch a funny video online like the one from Squatty Potty, they don’t think about all the details that went into pulling it off. But I’m going to show you what a big project it can be, and how everything has to come together just right in order for it to work.
Of course, it couldn’t be done without an amazing team of talented people, and in this case, without the help of royalty, an imaginary creature, and some good old fashioned ice cream.
You might be surprised to find out that making rainbow-colored ice cream into unicorn poop is a much more difficult task than it seems. Or that writing a great script and having it read by a classy, charismatic prince might just be your ticket to viral video success.
Every tiny detail matters on a video like this one, and none went overlooked on this unique and hilarious video for Squatty Potty. I really enjoyed being an Executive Producer on this creative project and seeing it from concept to completion.
Take a look into the making of this viral video and its adorable ice-cream-pooping unicorn.
