First, if Universal's PR department wasn't at least tangentially involved with this, it should have been, because this is the most convincing piece of video marketing for a theme park attraction I've ever seen. Forget Disney's made-for-cable Everest special. This piece made me what to get on a plane for Orlando... to go ride Jaws with this crew, before they find other gigs or Universal foolishly closes it again.
The piece exudes love and pride for this attraction and the employees' role in it, while maintaining an irreverent attitude throughout. That's a tough balance. The director did an outstanding job, and everyone involved deserves congratulations.
Seriously, Universal, you've got to show these folks some love here.
One other issue: The piece illuminates the rivalry between attraction crews that makes working in a theme park so much fun. If I were still working Tom Sawyer Island or Pirates (my two main locations back in the day at the MK), I'd be *dying* to match this effort with a video of our own. But I cannot imagine that Disney, with its, um, information control issues, would ever allow it.
I am pretty sure if it was Disney, they would have lost their jobs (that cause Disney has no sense of humor!)
That said, I find the whole thing brilliant. Universal would be smart to take advantage of this.
