Twenty-two million. That’s how many times people have watched “Looking 4 Myself,” a collaboration between Usher and Samsung that shows the power of motion in a new smart TV campaign. “We used a mix of paid and earned views and timed the release of the video to capitalize on the buzz around the season finale of The Voice,” said Ross Maupin, the creative director of Huge, the company that created the viral video.
