While we’re on the subject of promo videos for web series, we couldn’t pass up this latest one from the guys up at Diggnation. Sure, sitting down for a full episode of Kevin and Alex’s antics can run you about a full hour of your day, but a one-minute promo is sometimes all you need to remind you to check back in on the boys.
Host Kevin Rose performs a complete fail of a golf putter chip shot from the stage of their most recent episode, a live show from Phoenix. With co-host Alex Albrecht egging him on, Rose drills the oversize ball smack in the face of an innocent audience member, prompting a justified use of Keyboard Cat. (If you’re one of the three people on the internet that doesn’t get this ref, then study up over at another useful web series, Rocketboom’s spinoff series Know Your Meme.)
The promo is up on YouTube and points viewers to subscribe to the show’s new YouTube channel. Once limited to the Revision3 site (and downloads), this looks like a savvy move into conquering the YouTube-only hordes. It’s also made easier by YouTube’s recent decision to allow embedding of external video players, live Revision3’s and Sony’s Crackle. With Rev3’s in-video sponsor plugs (even an on-stage GoDaddy sign), it doesn’t really matter where the video lives.
Here’s the full episode for later:
