AOL Uses Blogs and Video to Introduce AIM Mail

aim_mail_little.jpg

To promote its new AIM Mail, AOL has a couple of strange online videos, created by Attik. One has a receptionist drifting into a daydream which consists of superhero midgets...oops...dwarfs...oops...little people giving her a tickle attack. The other has a pair of sushi falling in love only to have one killed by getting eaten. Both end with @aim addresses and no other form of linkage.

Once at the AIM Mail site, there are blogs that promote the videos. The videos can be viewed here and here.

I give up... where are these videos? I have scoured the AIM Mail site and can't find 'em. You would think a "viral" campaign would be slightly contagious...
