Meebo Debuts Super Bowl Commercial...on YouTube
We've been using web-based instant messaging service Meebo for over a year now and love it. It allows you to aggregate all your IM clients into one, easy to use, interface. It's a company with a loyal and growing follwing so it is without surprise they are looking to hire more developers. What better way than a Super Bowl spot to get the word out to the most people. OK, that would be a horridly inefficient media buy but that's OK becasue Meebo isn't actually placing their as in the game but rather on YouTube.
In a Mash-Up of the 1987 VW Golf ad with the two dudes picking up the old chair off the side of the road and the 1998 Bill Gates and Steve Balmer spoof of the ad, Meebo makers Sandy and Elaine follow suit with a Smiley in the back seat and the announcement they are in need of developers. We like it. Then again, we love Meebo so we have to like this commercial.
Seriously, if you want to try out a new way to manage all your IM accounts without the necessity of having multiple programs open at the same time, you should check out Meebo.
