Online Video Grows During the Writer’s Strike

From the House of Naked:

“In US: Major online video sites have doubled their audience since the US writer’s strike started in November. YouTube’s audience was up 18% in the two months post-strike and Crackle doubled its audience from 1.2 million users to 2.4 million users.”

Growth in online video during the writers strike must add some salt to the wound for network executives who are facing angry media planners and an overabundance of reality television. I also think it’s great how writers are discovering other outlets for their content, including the much hyped funnyordie which is the entire reason for this post.

I Wish Real Coors Light Ads Were This Funny

Coors Light advertising is not funny. In concept, it is hilarious. In practice, it makes me want to grab a cold Coors Light because I think if I keep drinking the ads might get funnier. Does that mean they are working?

This consumer generated spoof is a little funnier, and I haven’t even been drinking.
