NEW UPDATE: I'm fat | "Swines" Rant | Swines CL Customer Support | Wagenheim's Warrior

97 replies
Yesterday I posted a video of how I get my son to do homework http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...l-you-use.html and started wondering if I can use these silly actors to market a product.

So here is Michael and Nancy having a conversation in a supplement store.


Here is my 2nd video:

This one has "swine" giving his time share sales man a few choice words. Happy ending at end of video. This video is RATED PG 13 because of the use of the F WORD

I worked time share selling a loong time ago and can attests to the rage of time share owners, so keeping along the same lines, here is the video:


Swinie sent a customer support email to craigslist and this is what happened. We all know Swinnie's language (Rated R) so watch with caution.


3rd Video: Nancy reads a PLR article about weight loss. Rated G

    LOL, I'll be waiting for part 2 of this series where the couple is married and having problems - and which product they use to solve them.

    I am crying.

    Spank me please.

      It took a lot of staying power to resist leaving a cheeky comment to this one!

      On a serious note, I just played around with that thing, and I think it makes for a more interesting video than a lot of the screen cam article/videos that are out there these days. Certainly might be a nice way to re-use article content etc.

      Thanks for the resource.

        Yeah, this has a lot of possibilities. With the right title, tags and humor, these videos might even go viral.

      You must be a mind reader!!! My thoughts too.

      Should we start a worst or unintentionally funniest video on You Tube competition? I nominate this one.

      I think the cold medicine has me on funny mode. Poor Nancy just wants a more "manageable" trunk.

  • That is pure brilliance. How do you do the animation? (Not asking for specifics, just software.)

    [update: I see -- Xtra normal.]

    I'm gonna have to play around with that.

    "No wonder your trunk looks all spankable!" LOL! I'm dying here- that was hysterical.

    From a marketing perspective: 1) Make it shorter 2) Keep the humor 3) Take a look at Common Craft - Our Product is Explanation and their partners for more ideas- you could make a series of "How To" videos with your characters explaining stuff.

    Great stuff- thanks for sharing!

      OMG...that second one is hysterical.

      Question, do you control the gestures in the animation?

      I watch these things very closely and noticed some arm gestures at key
      points in the video. Do you control those or are they arbitrarily put in?

      My guess is, it can't be random because they fit too well.

      If you have that much control, that is one f^*^g great software.

      Ooops...did I say that?

      See what you started???

      Brilliant...just brilliant.

        Hey Steve, Yes, you can control the movements and insert them into the time line, a bit of a pain in the butt to get right but once you do, it makes the video a lot better. YOu even control the cameras

          I give you SOOOO much credit for having the patience to do this.

          At this stage of my life, I don't think it's something I want to tackle.

            I've been sick since yesterday and didn't feel like working. Just played around online all day. Our little swine friend already made a little bit over $35 and people keep watching on youtube.

            We'll see how it is in the morning.

      Most people found it funny. The best thing is that it generated 2 leads at $8.50 a piece already

      You can make your own video - I have no clue what I would charge as I've never done any of them for anyone.

      I'm slapping another one together tomorrow morning

    Greenovni - my comment wasn't an insult- I was laughing when I wrote it. Kind of like when someone tickles you & you laugh, "Stop it! I can't take it anymore! Haha!"

    I think they're hilarious! You gotta figure out how much you'd charge & do a WSO on them or something- they're great.

      Okay, here's an idea if you have Camtasia.

      Create the video. Then download it from YouTube and import it into Camtasia.

      Record a video of you asking the character questions and have the
      character answer them. You can have a running conversation between
      a real human and the character.

      Simply script out both parts but only have the online software record the
      character part. You provide your part at home.

      Yes, it will take some work, not to mention a digital camcorder of some
      kind and the Camtasia software.

      But if you can pull this off, and have the stage presence to do it, it can
      really add another dimension to this whole thing.

      Already my brain is churning with tons of stuff you can do with this.

      There is a market, I am sure...IF you can prove that this stuff converts
      prospects into buyers.

      Okay, now my head is hurting.

      That's a good idea Steve, I could have a spoke person character and do interviews about all kinds of products. Now to find a camcorder

      Well, I'm taking the plunge.

      I'm putting something together right now and will post it here when I'm done.

      It's simple, but it shows you what you can really do with this if you have
      Camtasia and a little imagination.

    Hey Steve, 3rd video was just a simple plr article, no humor just a dry article being read by "nancy" - No click throughs yet.

    Swinie is another story.

    Called an old timeshare friend here in Orlando and asked him to refer people that call him to "return the timesahres" straight to the video.

    EPC = $97.54

    I am trying to call my AM now because the numbers are way out of whack.

    You must have thousands of articles ready to be made into videos. I'm just throwing stuff up there and see what sticks.

      For now, I'm just sticking to the animated characters but still showing what,
      with a little Camtasia editing, you can do with this.

      Yeah, the human to animated interviews are going to be a scream.

      I've got so many ideas for scripts (I used to write for the University of
      Miami drama department about 20 years ago) that they're spinning around
      in my head.

      I REALLY don't have the time for this.

        There are a ton of possibilities for this. If Swinie performs again today, I'm going to spring for the monthly charge.

        I'm like you, I really have no time for them but I guess I can make one a day if I wake up earlier.

        If you need any help, let me know.

        I just finished going through ALL of Xtranormal's TOS.

        To use these videos for commercial use, you MUST upgrade to paid
        membership.

        It's $4.99 per month or $39.95 for the year. I upgraded for the year because
        it comes out to like $3 and change per month.

        Please make sure you read the terms before you start doing this and trying
        to make money off of these videos.

        They CAN close your account.

          I guess I should go read their TOS. I didn't even looked at them yet. I guess I'll spring the $ for the 'commercial account' I just realized I can kill this in Spanish.

          A Spanish 'novela'

          El Amor De Swinie (Swinie's love)

            One other thing...with the upgrade, you don't have that promo at the end
            of the video...much more professional that way.

            It's worth the money IF you're going to actually use this.

            Oh, and with the upgrade the number of characters you get for each
            section is about 10 times. They really do give you a hell of a lot of value
            for a few bucks a month.

            I was just going to point that out too. What baffles me is the second in this list of bullet points taken from the TOS...

            You agree not to use the Site, for any commercial use, unless you agree to purchase the Commercial Account. Prohibited commercial use includes, but is not limited to, theses actions:
            • The sale of access to the Site or its Services on another site;
            • Use of the Site or its Service, for the primary purpose of gaining revenues;
            • The sale of advertising on the Site; and
            • Any use of the Site or the Services with the effect of competing with or displacing the market for our Site
            I baffle easily. Why else would you have a commercial account if not to use the service to gain revenue?

            Even at $240 a year the price does not seem unreasonable to me, given the returns you could generate quite easily by using the service. But not if you can't use the service commercially to gain revenue! Which bit am I reading upside down? :confused:

              • Any use of the Site or the Services with the effect of competing with or displacing the market for our Site
              I baffle easily. Why else would you have a commercial account if not to use the service to gain revenue?

              Even at $240 a year the price does not seem unreasonable to me, given the returns you could generate quite easily by using the service. But not if you can't use the service commercially to gain revenue! Which bit am I reading upside down? :confused:
              Looks like once you have a commercial account, you can then make videos to generate revenue?

                I don't know. The way I read it, you can't use the site and services for any commercial purposes unless you purchase a commercial account. After that you can use the site and it's services for any commercial purposes except those listed. Which would be kind of limiting

                    I did wonder if I was misinterpreting those lines in the TOS and they meant that you could use the site and services in order to gain revenue if you purchased a commercial account, but in that case 'Any use of the Site or the Services with the effect of competing with or displacing the market for our Site' would be acceptable too. I would have thought that unlikely!

      I honestly liked the first 2 better, with the second one being a total scream.

      I think the PLR was a little dry reading, but still much better than if you're
      just reading the article itself...which shows you the power of video if it can
      make dull PLR better.

        Yeah, I think that they do give a hell of a lot of value for a good price. The PLR one was just a test, you know, copy and paste all the way.

        At least we have a way to use PLR that is kinda innovative.

      Yeah, I can see the potential in these...outside of the IM market because
      let's face it...once marketers get a hold of this, they themselves will

    I'm willing to bet that the TOS is being misinterpreted. I'm guessing that the commercial license is only needed if you plan on selling the videos themselves (or using their service and selling that as a service).

    I doubt they meant to say that you can't use the videos to send traffic to a website which may or may not make you sales.

    A lot of TOS writings I've seen are aiming for what I described above.

        Here is the reply I got from Xtranormal support:
        --------------------------------------------------
        Hi,
        Thank you for your email.

        The baseline is that if you are directly or indirectly making money with our
        product, you need the commercial account. So unless you are making
        money with your blog, you are not transgressing our TOS.



        I hope this helps.

        Best regards,
        xtranormal.support


        -----------------------------------------------------------

        Personally, I think this is BS (not to mention how many thousands of
        people out there are violating their TOS) but I'm not going to get into
        a knock down dragout with them. I'm going to get the commercial account
        and that way I can do whatever the freaking hell I want.

        I wonder how they're going to go after all the violators out there?

        This should be interesting.

          Hm. I wonder how they are going to draw the line with "indirectly making money". :rolleyes:

          Steven, do you happen to know if the commercial account is a one-time fee or any form of subscription?

            My name's not Steven, but I can answer the question!

            The commercial account is a yearly fee of $239.99. I think I'll upgrade to the commercial as well. Done right, I think these can definitely be money makers.

            It took me much longer than an hour or so to do it. The system kept hanging up and I found that if I moved my mouse off of the centered movie area (I have a wide screen monitor) I lost everything I'd just done. So, I was saving all the time, which takes time as well. Once their downloadable app is re-released, I'll try that and hope it will work faster. Altogether I spent about 6-7 hours making a good commercial video but, if it pays for itself I'll pay someone else to do it next time!

            Oh - I'll post the video later.

              That's good to know. I asked the xtranormal support, but they haven't gotten back to me yet, and the main web site really isn't clear on that issue.

              It took me much longer than an hour or so to do it. The system kept hanging up
              Probably due to all the Warriors that are having fun producing a movie right now...

    The problem is, I think most of the videos that this can produce will be too funny for anyone to take seriously and so it limits what can be promoted with this type of video.

    Looks like great fun though!, Am off to give it a go now!.
