YouTube and E! CyberSmacker $25K Contest

YouTube and E! are partnering to bring a new broadband offering to Internet airwaves called "Cybersmack," a homegrown video inspired by satirizations of pop culture.

Since premiering as a segment in E!'s series "The Soup," E! Networks said "Cybersmack" has become a viewer favorite. Now the network will expand the franchise with a dedicated broadband channel on The Vine @ E! Online in partnership with YouTube. E! has also launched a consumer sweepstakes offering a US$25,000 prize for the best "Cybersmacker."

For more information, see this TechNewsWorld article titled "YouTube Making Friends in High Places."

Thanks for the heads-up again! It was hard for me to find something from my stuff that matched their request for 'wierd', but I think I found one.

So have seen the marketing trailers for Cybersmack at YouTube? Here's what you see: A TV produced show with a talking head reviewing a bunch of clips off the internet, and then plugging YouTube at the end. This is a clip *on YouTube itself*!! The recursive irony makes my head hurt. I'm on a video clip web site watching a clip of a TV show about internet video clips. Aaaahhhggg! Do you think E! is actually paying YT for this? If it's just cross promotion, there where's the revenue model for YT?
