« What's New? Setting Up a MySpace Page Leads to Lots of Dilemmas, and Some WKRP Reminiscing. | Main | What's New? A Movie Review of "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby." »

No MySpace Yet, and Creative "Snakes on a Plane" Marketing.

By: The Dude on the Right
First, in case I confused any of you with my podcast yesterday (sorry sis), don't go looking for a MySpace page for me yet.  It doesn't exist.  My podcast was about my dilemmas of setting one up and the best way to do so to get the least amount of grief from my two biggest critics, my niece and my nephew.  When, and I suppose if, I actually set one up that I think is at least almost niece and nephew proof, you can bet your ass I'll post the link, but until now, it's only a pipe-dream.

But for this blog I wanted to hip you to one of the coolest, "let the fans do all the publicity for us" campaigns I have found in years. And don't go and correct me, because I have found out this has been done before, but never for a movie with as much internet buzz as this, or one I really cared about... 

You might have heard about the upcoming movie "Snakes on a Plane."  It's about, well, snakes, on a plane.  The movie folks have teamed up with another company to, well, I guess the easiest way to put this is, is that you can have Samuel L. Jackson "call" your friends, family, neighbors, or lovers, and "tell" them to go and see the movie "Snakes on a Plane," personalized to fit your said friend, family, neighbor, or lover's lifestyle.  You can also e-mail the audio message to same friends, but that isn't nearly as fun as it might be for the phone call option.   I have already sent some friends and family members the message, and so far my friends have found it very funny.  In any case, if you want to have some fun, head to the "Snakes on a Plane" website and use the "Get a call from Samuel L. Jackson" area, or you can head directly to the Varitalk site and start from there.

Have a good weekend.  It's another busy movie weekend for me, so look for new posting as the weekend goes along, I hope.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
