The approach and presentation method of the video was able to stimulate interest, entertain at the same time drive a message or point.

Takes aay the boredom of going through training. Humor helps and people tend to remember thngs that hit a nerve whether it is serious or funny. Anything exaggrated is usually remembered as well.

I find it engaging because you can relate to the people/situation. And humour helps, too.

This is amusing and will warm up a training group without threatening them.

Exaggeration works: it makes us pay attention, laugh, and see things in new ways. The video made me laugh and the stats helped me understand why we feel so overwhelmed at times with all the info we're receiving. I'll have to think about where I could use exaggeration in training.

Humor is an effective tool, and the video is well produced. The stats about the amount of info that confronts us is phenomenal. Shooting darts into Billy was kind of upsetting.

I enjoyed the resource, although I wonder if information overload is a symptom of increased access and connectivity, or whether it is as much to do with increasing workloads and expectations. However, the video definitely gets the message across... :)

I think exaggeration in this vignette got the audience's attention and helped to make the learning content more memorable, while bringing the point home. I enjoyed the video.

Using exaggeration or dramatization, if done correctly, can really bring the point accross and make it memorable and easy to relate back to it. I could use such exaggeration in intros and summaries of my trainings, to establish the point of the training and then show the objectives. Unfortunately it takes a bit more resources to make something that is clever/funny. If not done well, it can just look silly and unprofessional. This video obviously has great production value.
It made me pay attention, laugh, and think.

This video is hilarious and I think eases the tension with an audience that experiences information overload. I agree with others that it can be used right before presenting more material that yes leads to IOS.

Great video. And interesting comments below. The video demonstrates that exaggeration is a great device for attracting attention, and even creating memorable content. However, I agree with some of the comments below, that it should only be used as an icebreaker, or in concert with more real-life application tools.
