JOKEROO.COM RELEASES FIRST EVER VIDEO FADE OUT

Has anyone ever heard of the Transformers? My Dad used to watch the transformers all the time with my kid sister. Well Jokeroo.com put out the first ever advertisement for the first video fade out. Optimus Prime loses out to Bumblebee. You can see the video here at Joker.com

Here is the press release concerning this awesome video and technology:

Press Release:

TORONTO, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)—-Jokeroo.com, http://www.jokeroo.com, one of the pioneers in internet video and entertainment, has premiered the video fade-out advertisement with the upcoming movie, Speed Racer. The new format was designed to attract marketers across the globe with an advertisement that’s high impact and engaging, while avoiding any negative impact on the user.

Although the campaign is still in its infancy, it has produced spectacular results posting a click-through north of 4 percent, which is much higher than eMarketer’s quoted preroll standard of 0.5 to 0.9 percent. “When coming up with the idea we were looking for something that offered great performance for the advertiser while keeping the user happy,” says Aleks Dugonjic, the President of Jokeroo.com.

The creative takes up the full screen outside of the video player environment, which avoids interrupting the user experience but allows the advertiser’s brand to go unnoticed. The fade-out can last up to thirty seconds until it slowly starts fading out and the Jokeroo.com webpage appears. A live example can be found here:
