Viewer-Created Ads on Current! (4)

Thursday, June 01, 2006 by , under


Ever heard of Current? The Current TV Network lets its viewers create their own TV shows and videos, and airs them on the telly. Complete-consumer-made-content-driven TV. Wow. Awesome idea, and now they're going even further.

The Current TV Studio website is now letting users create their own ads for real-life sponsors like Toyota, L'Oreal, Sony and several other big fat brand names. What's more, you have a shot at making some fat cash out of it! If your ad gets chosen by the brand to air on Current, you get $1,000. If it's real good, and it gets chosen to air on (bigger) actual TV channels, you can get anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000. Smashing.

The concept is simple, fun and easy to use: You pick an assignment (for example, L'Oreal), read the little brief, download some material to put your ad together, and upload the whole thing in what they call a V-Cam package. I know I'm giving this a shot pretty soon.

Liposuccion beverage...yum! (3)

Another creative and quite repulsive ad for Sloche (same as Slush Puppy, different brand), served at Couche Tard convenience stores in Quebec. Sloche has a history of delivering a tasty product with truly disgusting flavor names to its customers: Windshield Washer (blue), Roastbeef (Pink) and Tropical Cheese (Orange...ahh, the refreshing taste of cheese on a hot day) are among the different flavors offered.

The AD was created by Montreal's BOS agency.

Check out the TV ad for this summer's latest culinary delight, "Liposuccion", right here
