    Default holy shit (sigur ros)

    did any of you see this email they just sent out???

    Sigur Ros and YouTube make a little bit of history this Friday (Mar 7) with the band taking over the entire front page of the site around the world for a whole day, becoming the first group to ever have a feature-length music DVD streamed on the channel, with their acclaimed 'Heima' documentary shown in its complete 97-minute glory.

    All 12 available slots on YouTube's home page will be devoted to the Icelandic quartet for a full 24-hours, putting them before a global audience of hundreds of millions. The link-up follows the success of 'Minn Heima', a competition hosted by YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/group/MinnHeima) for fans of the band to create their own little version of 'Heima', using audio and video clips posted online. The 10 best entries, as judged by the band, will be featured on the home page, alongside the film itself, as well as a special message from the band, taking time off from recording their new album in Reykjavik.

    YouTube has only previously hosted a handful of long form presentations, none for music DVDs. It is the first ever UK home page 'takeover' since the launch of http://uk.youtube.com - the localized home page that allows for country-specific video rankings and comments.

    Simultaneous with the YouTube promotion, the band will launch www.sigurros.com, giving away a free audio-visual download clip of the song 'Ny Batteri' filmed live in Reykjavik in the summer of 2006 as part of the Heima tour. 'Ny Batteri' is just one of a dozen additional songs not featured in the film that the band are intending to make available via the site in the near future. Information about the forthcoming album will also be revealed via www.sigurros.com…

    thats fucking insanely cool.

    its an interesting new precedent they are setting though...yes it is marketing, but 1. its pretty fucking genius marketing and 2. who has ever consented to their full work being put on youtube before? no one i am aware of...

    You would be wrong. Plenty of documentaries and indie features (Inconvenient Truth, 4 Eyed Monster, My Kid Could Paint That) have been put up in their entirety. There is plenty of precedent.

    Doesn't that mean it will be on www.youtube.com as well? I think its just saying that it is the first time the uk.youtube had its home page dedicated like that?

    that was in reference to uk.youtube.com being much smaller than www.youtube.com, not because it's harder to type.

    from the sigur ros official website.

    this friday, march the 7th, sigur rós will be taking over the front page of youtube for the day. the band will take over all twelve slots on the sites home page and the centrepiece of this will be “heima” in full. this is the first time a full-length music documentary is available to view on youtube.

    aswell as “heima”, the ten best entries of the “minn heima” youtube / sigur rós competition will be shown on the home page in addition to a special message from the band themselves.
    it looks as though there's no mention of the uk version of youtube.
    maybe this means it will be on the US version of the site as well.

    this is huge. Front page of youtube is massive exposure
