OK, some marketing genius really should get their props for this one. I’m searching for something in one of the Yahoo! Groups that I’m a member of, and I see this banner ad:
Anyone who knows me understands why I even looked at the ad (mmm, blonde). Why would I click on it? Because the headline text read “THE PARIS HILTON PODCAST” — and, what avant garde geek isn’t at least curious about something that mentions podcasting, especially when the podcaster’s a blonde? (Mental note: start a new “blondecaster” registry.) So, I clicked through and followed the podcast link.
Yes! It’s for real! Their podcast is syndicated with RSS. What’s even cooler is that Warner Brothers is distributing a customized version of iPodder! I’m sure the iPodder team is thrilled about this cross-promotion of their project.
Now, the only decision left to make: do I actually subscribe and listen to Paris Hilton‘s podcast? Hmm … it’s a pity you can only see blonde, not hear it.
