Pathetic Ad/Please contribute for a better one!

First of all, it's pathetic.
Second of all, the voice is most pathetic (and annoying)
Third of all, it's over here.
Pathetic isn't it?
Oh and MrElchBlau, r-andom, and I were thinking about some other ideas, namely having every member of PA.com film their hand plugging their flash drive in. I found some nice music too, Prophecy, which is by the same person that wrote SuperTux (hint hint Ryan).
If you want you can post yourself plugging in a flash drive (just your hand) and email it to me/post it here. Then John or somebody (like me ^-^) could compile them all and make a great video advertisement to put on the front page. Then people who like PA.com can post the video on their site or something :D. Or if somebody was willing to donate a gazillion dollars we can have TV commercials :P.
Oh, and fill out the form: http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?key=pgCpJvEwj-j0T1i4qozUyMQ

That remmebers me...

The video was very funny, and the voices hilarious!

It remmebers me of one video I once made with Windows Movie Maker and Paint, it was with a stick guy that starts to fly and hits with his head on a concrete wall above him (what was strange because he was outside), it used the U2 music "Elevation" and it sucked. The video itself had 10 seconds, but then the credits lasted 2 minutes basically repeating my name all over it. Blum

The concept of your idea is good, and maybe I will send a footage of my hand plugging my flash drives on some borrowed laptops Blum . But for it I need to know your EMAIL ADDRESS (your email page is not working).

By the way, I don't have a gazillion dollars Sad

Blue is everything.

Oh, and can you put the camera to the side of the drive (some above, maybe one behind) so that there are multiple (and better) angles?
Oh and what music should go with it? I was thinking prophecy...

Oh, thanks!

Great! I'm going to save that email well safe on my contacts list in case it disappears again. Blum

I still don't have any footages made (and it may take awhile to convert them to a usable format) but I will make them and use those angles.

A music... maybe we should go with something creative commons so we don't have copyright issues, but about the type of music I have no idea... it needs to be something that is of the liking of most people, and should sound modern (and this may be embarrassing, but I have no idea who the prophecy or various bands are, I just like to listen music).

(btw, what lodging are you using? That domain name is interesting...)

I'm using

dot.tk (you HAVEN'T heard of it???).
I still don't have any good video editors so I'm sticking with WMM.
Prophecy was by Wansti (writer of SuperTux).

Cool!

Oh! It is just a domain redirection!

And I think the music you choose is good for the thing.

BTW, I wont be able to record the videos this week probably, but I'll try next week, just remember me Biggrin .

Okay

I found the license. Wansti puts all his music under CC-By-SA

Finally

I got my new drive and the reviews were right about the size...
*Edit:* I wish the stats would work so I could put a 'n people use portable apps every day. Do you?' type of scene...

Film my hand?

Film me putting my puny 1 gig flash drive in the computer?
That'll be amusing.

yes,

pinch the sides, do the cam about 5 inches away from the drive, and make sure that the flash is mostly visible.
I don't get why nobody's posting (other than the fact about the bulky conversion).
