Kid Kaos : Honestly you should called yourselves "Hook and Loop" so that you won't have to worry about that stuff

K H : I didn't know Hook and Loop was even a company. They sure make make good velcro tough.

Ricky Merrefield : This video is clearly meant to be humorous and tongue-in-cheek. Nobody at Velcro thinks this video is going to change people's vocabulary.

blackmanfu : I'm still going to call it Velcro. And if that makes you cry, grab a Kleenex. Now where did I put my Vaseline...?

randomtv2015 (: : I didn't even know Velcro was an actual brand till now.

Numeroid : Funny video but I'm still gonna call it velcro lmfao

Trivvy : "Hook and loop" - 3 syllables "Velcro" - 2 syllables Sorry, sticking with what's easier to say.

Ty Grenier : You are only *just now* making an effort to keep people from using Velcro as a generic word? Probably a little too late.

LoneAsianCajun : Not sure why everyone is so butt hurt. This is a clever and creative video with a hilarious message. I dig it.

Matthew Jewell : I love VELCRO® Brand hook and loop.

AllyourBase3 : yeah good luck with that. talk to Xerox

Piwi : this was actually fun

SchroedingerLifts : Apparently people on YouTube are very bad at recognizing joke videos and picking up on when messages are tongue-in-cheek. How can you watch this and think Velcro is doing it in earnest?!

W. Arthur Buchanan II : This is hilarious. I had to check to be sure, but I'll tell my customers we sell Velcro brand hook & loop. Or just Velcro for short.

Karl Smith : "The sneaker heads will be like "Ahhh he got the hook and loop" Sorry guys. Doesn't work.

kenny : lol this marketing is actually pretty good, it's just a hit or miss thing, next time just get a few bots to get that initial positive reaction so the community follows. or u know, hire me. anyway, peace.

LastofAvari : That's just glorious. Thanks for the link, Reddit.

Radio Citrus Podcast : Not only will I continue to call it velcro, but this song has further persuaded me to purchase non Velcro branded velcro.

paradicetw : velcro sounds better

Jacquobite : It's funny I haven't seen Hoover make sarcastic youtube videos.

madichelp0 : 0% chance of "hook and loop" taking off, but a damn catchy song nonetheless.

Dan Bellinger : Do people actually call bleach products Clorox? I've not heard it personally as common for bleach. The others? Sure

Zachary Windsor : I'm calling it velcro anyway just out of spite. That way, your trademark with dissipate as it becomes common name. Just like all band aids are band aids, so now the brand has to call it "band aid brand".

Sappy Sapster : This is one of the best things I have seen all week. I will try very hard not to call it &*^!@# and share this to anyone who will watch it on ... that social media site.

John Smith : My Velcro didn't hold up now I have to get some Kleenex and Clorox to clean the spill and probably use some Germ X after.

TechTime : Maybe it would be cheaper to just give up the trademark.

Konrad Okoński : No worries guys, nobody even heard of you in Poland, there won't be any infringement.

Michael Finnerty : should call it ssrrcccctttccchhhh one word and its the sound it makes

Crayola Clouds : Guts, it's obviously a joke, calm down

kermit da frog : Ok i got go now lemme get my velcro shoes and my velcro wallet and my velcro socks and my velcro car and my velcro jacket

Donny : Comments are full of idiots who don't understand satire.

likwidflame : How to backfire, John Oliver Style.

George Knight : Brilliant song, very catchy, well made point, very funny, and yet... it's still fucking velcro. The difference between Velcro (R) and velcro is the logo and the (R). If you didn't like it you shouldn't have waited 60 years to address the problem.

almcken2 : This is like trying to tell me Plato isn't a planet.

Connor Dombroski : I found this hilarious lol Unsuccessful.... but still very funny

Omar Kayal : Sorry, no one is ever going to call it hook and loop. Thats just reality

Zefareu Privatis : Discourage people from using your brand name. Good plan.

DrMD : Working as an aircraft mechanic, EVERYONE in the industry will call it Velcro, so it a WAY to late to change the naming

Luis de Rivas : Hook And Loop?!? You guys are just as guilty diluting the brand. For example, look at Velcro Brand products on Amazon: Many product packages don't say it's a fastener, 'Hook and Loop' or give a name for the product at all! "General Purpose Stick on", "Industrial Strength", "Heavy Duty Stick On" - Aside from Velco Brand, this is what you boldly proclaim on the front of packages. Are we to call them 'stick ons'? Yo, I want a pair of 'stick on tie shoes'....Say what? 'Hook and Loop tie shoes', dude. Sorry, man; we don't carry that. You know, 'Velcro'. Oh... 'Velcro tie shoes' , why did you just say that in the first place?

Meatduck : I actually love this! and the song is so catchy!

R&R Media : Hook and loop? Nah, velcro.

PissPoorPete : I'm going to find some off-brand velcro, and just stick it to things. I may the Hoover up the mess, when that fails, i'll go Google the way to do it properly. We don't get to decide how the world uses words, stop being a cuck about it.

Canuck S : Internet and people's mind 101: I don't tell people what you don't want them to do. Cause it's gonna be worst

Applehash : overly expensive - generic velcro far more economical.

EY : I suppose they want us to stop calling shirts with collars polos, referring to mopeds as vespas, and assuming all pregnancy pills are plan B also.

brandini _ lel : Velcro

Marc : Tell that to Hoover. :-)

Mcninjaguy : They are my velcro to the other velcro part....

ThePuppyTurtle : So what you're saying is that using the term velcro defies your interests as a corporation and will cause you to lose some of the trademark control you can use to exert power over others?
