ENGLISH LANGUAGE VIDEOS ON DUTCH REACH
THE DUTCH REACH - SAFE FOR WORK, Outside Online Magazine
Outside Online's in-house videography team produced this now viral video within 10 days of reading the first news story about the Dutch Reach. It's title and teasing start plays on the [entirely unintended and unsuspected] of the quirky coined term itself. Apparently 'Dutch' & 'Reach' have connotations which many Millennials suspect and smirk about. Hence the subtitle: Safe For Work or SFW as opposed to not safe, or NSFW. After the intro, OO's Fitness Director makes a very graceful presentation.
The video has since been viewed over 2 million times world-wide - on Outside's home and YouTube portals alone. Outside's viewers voted it their most loved video of 2o16, though it only started running in late September!
Additional media carrying the Outside Online video
Outside's video appears and still circulates now on mainstream & off-stream websites, blogs, FaceBook pages, via Twitter posts, and other social media worldwide.
Among the most popular early sites to host it in its entirety or use clips -- and most were possibly first alerted to the Dutch Reach by the OO video's buzz -- include 99%invisible, CleanTechnica, Upworthy, & Treehugger. Mainstream outlets include BBC World Service & PRI's The World, the Telegraph UK, & Weiner Zeitung, Austria.
