Real-World Where's Wally Is the Best Use of 360 Video So Far

By Bryan Menegus on at

360 video is often disappointing (although there are exceptions). Cinematography goes out the window. It’s a nightmare on desktop. But Corridor Digital managed to use its limitations in their favour. Here’s how I’d like to imagine this video was born:

INT. OFFICE — AFTERNOON

The CORRIDOR DIGITAL headquarters are hitting the usual lull around lunchtime, when an UNUSUAL EMAIL shows up.

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
Uh, hey guys? According to this, we can do 360 videos now

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
Well, that’s neat and all, but why would we?

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
What ever could you mean

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
360 videos suck

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
...I think they’re pretty cool

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
Like, they’re terrible. You spend half the time just hunting around for what you’re supposed to be looking at

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
...I’ve literally never had that problem

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
It’s like some live action version of Where’s Wally where you—

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
Stop right there, you’re a genius

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
In fact, I am. Yes. Thank you for your acknowledgment

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #1
I am a good friend who values your abilities

CORRIDOR DIGITAL EMPLOYEE #2
You are a very good friend, yes

Exeunt
