Any body want to help contribute to a bitcoin commercial?

Im going to fund it I dont plan on making this related to cheaperinbitcoins.com.

I would like to make a commercial that will get peoples attention to check out bitcoins and during the whole commercial show weusecoins.com at the bottom of the screen or maybe setup a landing page for specifically the commercial.

Ideas?

Looking for a writer who knows the ins and outs of bitcoin well enough to intruige an audience about bitcoin

Also looking for a someone to make the commercial it self.

Wont talk about payment options publicly.

Only people with past work to show for will be considered for payment.

Besides that i think the community can help refine progress i plan on releasing the commercial some time early to mid next year.



As to matthews comment
Your right we need more products/services but i think branding bitcoin a little bit could help too getting the name out ther reaching to potential bussiness owners with the same philosophy as us.

Right now im looking into google ads but open to suggestions.

Target audience:
Gamers
Geeks
Business owners
anybody that has basic working knowledge of computers.


I wonder what kind of budget requirements a television station like G4 would cost for 30seconds(realisticaly 15 seconds i think)of ad time. I think that could be a good goal to reach honestly that would make this place boom with new ideas with all that geek power!

I'm a writer who has stumbled across bitcoins in the last few months but have been totally intrigued with the concept.  I feel I know enough to relay a proper message to the general public.  I also work frequently with a group of filmmakers who I have been hipping to this whole bitcoin phenomena.  I know I could get interest in producing a commercial.  I'll PM you some of our work and you can decide whether it would be worthwhile to work with us.

As for ideas...  off the top of my head maybe we could get out the bitcoin message with a mock political ad for the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto?  It may be timely considering the time-frame you are looking to release the commercial.

I understand that you want to use different media to raise awareness, but tv ads are geared for impulse buying. We have a long way to go before Joe Blow is ready for Bitcoin. We still don't have very user friendly apps.

Bitcoin is visionary. I wish we could do something like these 1993 ads. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZb0avfQme8

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Indeed, My ad campaign is set to be released in a the far future for next year. Bitcoin could have highly evolved by then. I have pre-decided that I won't release the commercial until its ready to be released and all other economic factors have been taken into consideration(perfect buying time for new customers to come in, appealing services &/or products to be reffered to). Which is why I'd like the Bitcoin community involved in almost every decision i make.

I figure its going to take a year of planning and fund raising(hopefully less, we'll what the future holds tho)


As far as the link you gave me. Thats a nice video of ATT showing how they will push for the future! I hope to convey this message as well and I plan to attract anybody that already has a good working understanding of using computers maybe I can attract new business owners to accept Bitcoin.

I've been talking with deltanine about his idea on how the commercial should go, and I can't wait to have everyone review it once everything is settled.

I think a good meme would do nicely

Perhaps a Bitcoin infomercial would be better.

20-30 minutes giving people a step by step way of going from non-Bitcoiner to full knowledge of how to use Bitcoins.

Nothing says trustworthy prime-time television like an infomercial!

How about a commercial that incorporates seasteads, Ayn Rand/Atlas goatse, Furcadia furry beastiality gay pornography and scamming! That's this forum's meme.


Bitcoins coming out if the goatse ass while Ann Ryan is dressed as a fury .... No too far even in a seastead

Ideas?

Show a child progressing through different stages of their development where Mom/Dad buy/sell things for them on the Internet. They buy a nice Play House toy for toddler, then a bike when they're older.  They sell the play house on eBay when they are older still, etc.  End with a call from patagonia or somewhere when they are 20 and backpacking around the world. They are calling because they need money to get home.  Mom/Dad gets on the Internet and sends them money so they can get home. ....  Then have a big round golden bitcoin that comes up from the bottom right of the screen and centers in the middle, and positioned around the coin are stillshots showcasing the child from each of the previous buy/sell/send money scenarios.  A voice-over says something like: "Buying, selling, or sending money-- when it matters most, Bitcoin will get the job done securely, quickly, without hassles and generally no fees." Voice continues: "Bitcoin is a secure, decentralized payment system*** that opens up worlds of possibilities. To learn more, visit weusecoins.com".

Something like that, anyways.

weusecoins.com would need to have a landing page that has a simple step-by-step layout:

1. Download this program.
2. Add some bitcoins to your balance *
3. Start using your bitcoins **

* Have an "official" not-for-profit service on weusecoins.com where you can deposit cash in an account at any of the world's major banks (in most countries) to get bitcoins.

** Have a list of mainstream merchants/services that accept bitcoins, as well as places to earn bitcoins, such as auction sites

*** I like the term "Payment system" because that's the easiest for people to understand.  I think the terms "currency", "money", "barter" etc, would just turn people off.

Gordon Liddy here for Magic the Gathering Online Exchange!
Like you, I'm worried about the falling US Dollar.  Experts are calling this economic crisis the worst since the Great Depression.  The Fed is printing money faster than ever, paying for Wall Street bailouts on our ten trillion dollar debt.  But you don't have to watch your hard-earned savings shrink to nothing!
Invest in BITCOINS!  I got into Bitcoins two years ago!  It's the smartest move I ever made.  During hard economic times, Bitcoins are the currency that goes up, not down.  The value of Bitcoins has gone up by over 100 times in two years, and the best is yet to come!
