If you haven’t seen Minelab’s Sweet Symphony video, I encourage you to check it out here.
I might seem a little bit partial, being a “Minelab Girl” myself, (and I am), but I have to give credit where credit is deserved, and I think the video is pretty awesome. While it doesn’t really describe what the hobby is all about, it will definately peak the interest of the younger generation, and perhaps make them want to learn more…? I’m assuming that’s the audience and message the video is targeting anyway. That, and the fact that metal detecting is just so much darn FUN!
I also liked that in the beginning of the video you’ve got the older guy, dressed in stereotypical detecting gear, with folks looking at him like he’s some type of freak (babes on beach amused), and at the end–out pops a true metal detecting hottie (yeah, he’s hot), and those babes take notice.
Kudos to Minelab for being so creative in helping to transform the stereotype, and for getting the message out that metal detecting is a cool hobby.
I should also add that Minelab invites you to make and share your own video about metal detecting, and they are giving away some cool prizes (i.e. Minelab metal detectors) for the video that gets the most votes click here and scroll down for more info.
