THE MASSIVE JOKE SOLD
CB Bloggers may recall an article on this blog about The Massive Joke. Well here's a follow-up.
After 10 days of bidding, seek.com.au has purchased The Massive Joke for a grand total of $610. Cummins & Partners, Melbourne copywriter, Jason Rose will now write, perform and record a stand-up comedy routine revolving around Seek in the coming week or so and then post it on YouTube.
"The goal was to see whether the concept would work and it certainly has," says Rose. "It was also great to get a mainstream company on board. At one stage I thought I'd have to ask the local fish and chips joint."
The question now is how popular the clip will be once it hits YouTube. If it is popular, it will also be interesting whether other companies will be keen to give it a go.
