Of all the ways you can get an audience invested in your optimized press release, telling a good story tops the list.  Check out this lead which instantly engages:

“When LA-based indie rock band, The Remainers, were faced with translating their hit song “House” into the visual medium, they had some decisions to make. The band was approached by a number of talented directors, both aspiring and established, to work on the project. Whereas most artists hire on a professional director and production team to articulate their desired vision, the quartet took a more do-it-yourself approach. Using their own childhood toys with the assistance of modern software, they created a stop motion animation video of toys coming to life.”
