Tube Your Own Adventure
So I’ve held onto this for a few days, because combined with Vic’s earlier post it formed the worst two-for-one special of all time.
But I can contain myself no longer. Choose your destiny:
My good buddy Adam costars as the dry-humping antagonist… but that’s purely incidental. What I dig is the first attempt to make an interactive movie using only YouTube and embedded links.
As we all know, interactive movies were not the amazing theatrical slam dunk Christopher Lloyd thought they would be. They relied on handheld voting devices in a darkened theater: they were expensive and clunky. This model, however, makes them easy to produce and almost trivial to play.
Could YouTube be a place for this form to grow? Is this a potential comedy goldmine, or will the novelty wear thin? What do you think?
