Barclaycard Waterslide Spoof
Not bad at all. You can see the original ad here and also a link to the making of it in the comments.
I'd seen the spoof on a couple of blogs last week, and had planned to share here. But more interestingly (to me anyway), I was then contacted by Unruly Media, asking if I'd like to share this on a commercial basis. They are a viral video seeding specialist, seeding this on behalf of Specsavers. Essentially I'd get paid for each UK visitor that watches it here.
I checked Unruly Media out and I'm impressed with their progressive and transparent code of ethics. They don't ask me to say I like a video or anything else.
Not sure what you think, but this might be a viable way for bloggers to make a few quid, without putting ads on their site. If the content is something I'd be already interested in sharing or talking about, and I'm not compromised in what I can say, then this might be a good thing?
I'm not against putting ads on blogs, but the 12 cents I'd make a month is probably not worth it just yet.
