Today phone providers offer restaurant listings. What if u could actually view a 1 minute video of the restaurant – see what it’s like? You might pay 5 bucks to see such a film, before spending 500 bucks there.
The possibilities, really, are endless. ‘Interestingly shot’ and ‘nominally priced’ would be the two key factors in success.
