NBC’s new deal with YouTube

Hollywood Reporter describes a new deal between NBC and YouTube.

The most interesting part of the article to Office fans is:

The deal … includes a contest centered on the NBC series “The Office,” inviting YouTube users to create their own shortform videos touting the series.

The Associated Press provides a few more details on the contest:

NBC will sponsor a contest in which fans of “The Office” can create their own 20-second promotional clip — as long as they don’t use any copyright footage from the show. NBC will provide music, graphics and a “how-to” video.

Ooh boy, another contest! Calling Becca, proudgirl, and all other Office fanvid creators!


  1. That’s really cool. I was going to say proudgirl can’t lose, but I forgot about Becca. I wouldn’t want to have to choose.
    If I had any clue how to make a video, I’d try for the fun of it.

  2. Can’t wait to see everybody’s work (I assume we can view the entries on YouTube….?)

  3. It’s going to take more than jump cuts, cross fades and having a sappy love song underneath it all to win this contest.
