After many months of hard work and collaboration, today we are proud to release "Screw Banks".

http://screwbanks.net

Starring...the Vampire Squid, Jon Corzyne, a Bought Congress, PayPay, and a Colombian Hooker!  Check out this crazy cast of characters:

it's a great video targeted towards people upset with the banking system, for one reason or another.

This video introduces people to bitcoin in a nice cartoon, focusing on usability, not on technicality.

Promote it on Facebook, Twitter, Digg, everywhere you can!!!

The video is inspired by

http://weusecoins.com
http://www.theamericandreamfilm.com
http://www.dylanratigan.com
http://maxkeiser.com

and many more.

This video was funded entirely with bitcoins!  including some bitcoin crowdfunding from http://piratemyfilm.com


Thanks to everyone who contributed to the script and concept.  Now we need it to go viral!!!

The voice over needs to be transcripted to English asap. I want to translate it to Finnish (using subtitles).

Here is a copy of the script.  If anyone can translate this, I will have it redone with different language voiceover.

At least in Finland people are very used to subtitles so that would make sense to start with. I will translate the script asap and then give it to you and then it's very easy for you to just add it on Youtube so that the video has Finnish subtitles included. Youtube has a fairly good subtitle system these days, nothing has to be redone just copy paste to the subtitle preferences of that video.

The video does not work for people using noscript.  Even with scripting allowed to the screwbanks.net page, it still needs a few more sites to be 'allowed' to play.

yeah, I dont know.
I would rather show the old video to a sceptical friend of mine, then this one. Its good for a laugh, but does not introduce bitcoin as a serious project.

It's satirical, and I assume it hints at their outrageous fees. (See also: "fakebook", and "Goggle")

PayPay and all of the characters are fictional, of course.  In this scene, PayPay locks up other peoples money for 6 months without any appeal.

Bold words from a company that has HIGHER fees than Paypal!

Also Bitcoin currently pays ~250k USD to miners per week (6 Blocks per hour per day per week * 350USD at a rate of 5 $ per coin). In half a year this amount will halve, meaning that miners will either give up making the network vulnerable or need real transaction fees (which are currently too small to care about).

For me it's a bit too much government bashing and too little actual information. To "just use Bitcoin" to transfer money, you need to buy them - from a japanese website that looks like a stock exchange and doesn't accept my Paypal or Credit Card! After that you get hit by AML laws until you are allowed to withdraw the money you sent "so fast"...

https://bitfinex.com <-- leveraged trading of BTCUSD, LTCUSD and LTCBTC (long and short) - 10% discount on fees for the first 30 days with this refcode: x5K9YtL3Zb

Yeah, but you're probably a geek and think cute cat videos have too little actual information, too.

The video gets a +1 from me; effective marketing appeals to emotion, not intellect.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
