In another sign that the Internet has taken over everything in our lives, video sharing site YouTube will host its first ever Year Year’s Eve Countdown.
The video sharing Web site now owned by Google is teaming up with Warner Music Group to produce the first-ever YouTube New Year’s Eve Countdown. The promotion, which is sponsored by Chevrolet, will celebrate New Year’s as it happens around the world with new videos featured every hour from New Zealand to Los Angeles.
In addition to videos from top YouTube personalities, WMG will provide special video content from New Year’s celebrations with its artists as well as music videos and concert footage. “Almost-live” videos from New Year’s concerts from New York City, Scotland, Los Angeles, and Houston will be uploaded directly from the venues using mobile phones. Some of the bands playing include, Panic! At the Disco, the Goo Goo Dolls and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Users can upload their videos in a special New Year’s YouTube group at www.youtube.com/group/newyears.
I guess we can all forget about Dick Clark now.
