Airtime Enlists MC Hammer, Kurt Russell For Inaugural Ad


Perhaps you've heard of Airtime, the Chatroulette-like video chat service from Shawn Parker that allows you to chat randomly with your Facebook friends or complete strangers based on interests. Anyway, Airtime Co-Founder Shawn Fanning just released a promotional video for the service which features spokesman Ian Plaff who also works for the agency that created the video, Portal A.

Plaff takes on the persona of Buckley Rivington, a well-to-do, old money sort of fellow who's right at home in his Hugh Hefner-wear while chatting up the likes of MC Hammer, Kurt Russel, Gary Vaynerchuk and Ronnie Lott on Airtime.

It's humorous enough if you're into that whole "I'm an uber geek who has to adopt every new widget the tech industry produces" thing.
