Comedy duo’s college commercial reaches over one million views

An ad for a Perth tertiary institute featuring graduates of the college has gone viral over the weekend.

Written, directed and starring comedy duo and graduates of Central Institute of Technology, Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann, the horror-themed skit-style commercial titled It’s a Snap about ‘learning in the city’ was featured on The Huffington Post, Vancouver Sun and Gizmodo and has now clocked up nearly one and a quarter million views.

Kenley Gordon, head of marketing at CIT gave Inglis and McCann creative license to do whatever they felt would reach 16 and 17 year olds.

Inglis and McCann’s producer Lauren Elliott said she woke on Saturday morning to emails from producers and agents in LA and Canada wanting to work with the duo.

The Duo, who perform as Henry and Aaron, previously won Movie Extra’s 2010 web series competition Webfest as voted on by Facebook users from a 60 second trailer. The win allowed them to make the seven-part web series Henry and Aaron’s 7 Steps to Superstardom.
