Video Blogger And Product Placement

zefrank’s take on product placement in his video blog. Hilarious! Note the subtle placement of transparent 3M scotch tape.

The fact that marketers are starting to look at video blogs (vlogs) is very interesting. Blogs (the written ones) and video blogs are usually focused on a given topic. And with a big enough audience, it suddenly becomes an interesting place to advertise. We’ll see a lot more of this in 2007.

Busting That Cycle

Video blogger zefrank (the guy who never blinks) enjoys a lot of buzz. I checked out a few of his shows and never really got a kick out of them (expectations too high?) until I came across his show about Busting That Cycle. Hilarious and very inspiring at the same time (and a little nasty at the end).

Kevin Fox summarizes and gives some examples:

(…) by identifying the patterns you follow and deliberately departing from them you can gain new insights, new perspectives, and generally feel more alive.

When have you broken your last cycle? Or are you stuck in your life?

I’ve recently realized that planning to do stuff is not enough. Stop putting it off and do it! Today! You’ll be surprised how easy it was. And you’ll slap yourself for putting it off so long.
