Can B2B or enterprise PR and marketing campaigns include off-the-wall viral videos? You bethca!
Self-service direct email marketing solution provider Vertical Response recently released their version of Dr. Dre’s Mega-Hit “Nuthin but a G Thang” to get customers and partners excited about their services before Salesforce’s global tradeshow, Dreamforce.
Everything about the video is OTC. It’s shot around SF’s tech-heavy SOMA neighborhood, an iPhone makes a cameo, one of the rappers has a grill, and “ROI” and “dope” are used in the same sentence!

Yup Yup. These lines show the mass-ter marketing lyrical skills of VR’s rappers Furious Alf and 2fein:
“Email and CRM together/Now you know you’re in trouble”
“Aint nuthin but an app thang baby/we sendin mass emails like crazy”
VerticalResponse’s CEO and Founder–and blogger–Janine Popick posts a case-study of the video, offering a peek into the thinking behind and creation of this vertical marketing dork super-hit.
Mad props to the VR Crew for coming up with a unique way to hype people up about enterprise solutions.
