The stock footage names of everyone who appears in the Franchise Association’s “franchise fairness” video

At the same time they announced their absurd lawsuit against Seattle’s $15 minimum wage, the DC-based International Franchise Association also released a video intended to make their case to the public that Seattle’s law “discriminates” against franchise systems.

Turns out every single person shown in the video is taken directly from a popular stock footage library. And the names of the video pieces they spliced together say a lot about how the franchise lobby group is trying to make their case.

A list of every single person who appears in the franchise industry’s video as they appear in the Pond5 stock video catalog:

  1. Young asian woman smiling face
  2. Young hispanic man smiling at camera
  3. Portrait Of Young Happy Handsome Man In Glasses
  4. Friendly Female Barista In A Coffee Shop Serving Customers
  5. Young Pretty Woman Working As Florist In Shop And Smiling (Note: they color-adjusted the apron so it’s Starbucks green!)
  6. Attractive Female Business Owner On The Phone Behind The Counter Of Her Shop
  7. African American Woman Close Looks Up Smiles Into Camera
  8. Man Looking At Seattle Skyline
