Yahoo Signs Up JibJab Guys
Yahoo has picked up the JibJab brothers, Gregg and Evan Spiridellis, with an agreement to exclusively distribute their next two video. This is a great move for Yahoo, since JibJab's last big hit, "This Land", was an internet phenomenon, the most viral video of the year, inspiring a major court case. Yahoo should get a lot of publicity for their entertainment division out of this one (something they've been trying to do), assuming the videos are any good. One video, already available, has a Christmas theme, the other will be a political spoof.
