Twitter and Amateur Scouts

According to ESPN.com:

“Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has asked the club’s fans to act as scouts by suggesting potential signings on Twitter. “ (link)

Apparently the football (soccer to us Yanks) club, located in Yeovil Town in Somerset, southwest England, can’t afford a scouting program, so manager Terry Skiverton has asked the club’s supporters to take over that role.

With so many youths dying to be discovered, this could be a great opportunity for Yeovil Town to scoop up some diamonds in the rough. Of course the nature of the English leagues means they won’t be able to afford to keep them, but at least they could potentially get a nice transfer fee out of it.

Interactive Web Sites and Hip Hop

Screwing around on StumbleUpon today, I came across this site.

An interactive site detailing the bio of German super DJ Tomekk and his record label F-Records, this site leads you through an interwoven story about Tomekk’s career, and the growth of the label.

I spent a good 30 minutes just playing around with this site, primarily because of the infectious beats and the presence of KRS-One. If you like hip hop and/or interactive marketing, I highly suggest you check it out.

Ridiculous Ad Idea

Scene: Chaotic flash of events, a baby crying, bills stacked high on a table, man pulling his hair out in exasperation, a couple arguing violently, image of bad fast food job, teen reading pregnancy test

(Cut to bedroom scene where two young people are getting kissing passionately)

Boy: Hold on (runs to bathroom, pulls out box from under sink)

(Black screen simply reads “Trojan”)
