A promotional video for Getty Images, From Love to Bingo, spins their generic images into cinematic gold. The Brazilian ad agency AlmapBBDO filtered through 5,000 images to create the one-minute montage. Megan Garber, who has written extensively on the success of stock photography (don't miss "The Tao of Shutterstock"), notes, "It's a nice metaphor: Take a bunch of commonplace moments. Join them together. And get something amazing."
