Recruiter vids are songvids that 'sell' a show, or a pairing, to new fans. They may be made specifically for that purpose, using accessible music and careful clip choices -- ones that don't need a deep understanding of the show to make sense, and ones that show the actors, or the pairing, in the best possible light. Others may be made as 'regular' vids, but strike a chord with viewers unfamiliar with the show, who then want to find out more about the source.

There is a big overlap between the idea of a con vid and a recruiter vid.
