Creating Memorable Impressions

Yesterday I was flipping through videos on YouTube and I came across one that I had not seen in a while.  It was a personal favorite that I used to share with people all the time.  As I sat there watching the video for probably the third time in a row, I realized that this simple, stupid video had made an impression on me and that I was spending wasting time watching it over & over.  Not only that, but that I was then visiting Mike Phirman’s site to see what other creations he had made.

I learned quickly that sometimes the simplest and dumbest of things can make impressions on people.  The impressions were formed by tugging on their emotions with humor.  Making someone laugh is one of the easiest ways to get someone to remember you.

What have you done today to make someone laugh?

P.S.  I leave you with the video that made me become an instant fan of Mike Phirman

  • I am pleased to see this post! Thank you, Jeremy!

    It’s true: the best thing I can say about a joke while I’m laughing at it is either “god, that is SO brilliant!” or “god, that is SO dumb!” I enjoy them equally.

    Thanks again!

  • I am glad to hear this Hal. I was concerned using this video that it might cause a relapse.

  • Duck Duck Goose…

  • Thanks for stopping by Mike! I started listening to many of the other things on your blog. I was personally almost falling over from laughter while reading about your celebrity Honda.

  • Oh cool, thanks! You know, you’re welcome to a copy of my album, if you like. Just go to http://music.mikephirman.com and, when prompted, enter “0” for the amount, and it’ll download all the same. If you want to—no pressure, of course.

    Thanks again, Jeremy, for the nod!

  • Thank you! Very interesting information!
