Free? Youtube must still be making absolute bank to not be charging for certain videos yet. I wonder if they will air the MK series at a price just to have it.

However its kinda funny just yesterday Usher and his crew wouldn't sign Justin Bieber because "the web isn't strong enough" and now a motion picture is being released on the web.

Yep. Totally free. The kicker is it's actually a major motion picture. I thought it would be some crap with no-name people when I first opened the press release. Then get into it and there are actually some semi-big names in it as well.

The Web isn't strong enough? Don't know where he got that idea from.

Did it note anything on how its going to make money? mid movie ads or something?

JL4193d ago

No it didn't. However, Lexus is sponsoring it. So they may throw some ads in there. I'd imagine it would be the same way companies find it worthwhile to sponsor a show/movie on TV to make it ad-free. They just keep their logo in the corner at all times throughout the show/movie and they get constant logo placement while viewers get the pleasure of no ads and realize who they have to thank for that. So, my guess is it will be something to that effect. The release didn't mention anything though.

Oh wow, that title sounds stupid, I wouldn't waste my time watching it.
