Fact: There are 23 million subscribers on Netflix streaming. For my new video project I’m seeing how many films I can watch on Netflix streaming in a month. My goal is 250 movies. That’s over 400 hours.
I want to see how much value I can get for my $7.99 a month. For example if I watch 200 films that works out to about four cents per film.
Malkoff is no stranger to crazy stunts. From his bio:
He starred in a popular video in which he visited and consumed purchases at all 171 Starbucks locations in Manhattan in less than 24 hours. Mark also achieved worldwide media attention by living and sleeping in an IKEA store in Paramus, New Jersey for an entire week which ended up winning the 2009 PR Week Campaign of the Year. Last June he stayed on an AirTran airplane for an entire month to get over his fear of flying which resulted in a Guinness World Record for most scheduled flights in thirty days. In the fall Mark partnered with the Ford Motor Company in which he set out on the road in a Fusion Hybrid to see how many mayors he could convince to present him their key to the city which resulted in him being given ninety-five keys. This past winter Mark made headlines again with a video in which to disprove the myth that New Yorkers are rude he was physically carried 9.4 miles in Manhattan by 155 individuals.
Woot has some of the best copywriting, and tonight they wrote an ode to Quikster CEO Andy Rendich in the copy for a Lenovo Notebook computer.
You Did The Best You Could
This Lenovo Intel Dual-Core Laptop with 15.6” LED Display? It’s dedicated to all those who never got their shot.
Andy Rendich. CEO of Qwikster for about a week. You didn’t ask for the media frenzy. You just woke up and came into the office one morning to find out your boss had gone insane. But instead of walking away, as a lesser man might do, you took one for the team. You put your name on that disaster-in-progress and told the world… well, nothing really, because you didn’t even have time to figure out a business plan. But you were gonna do it, pal. You were gonna bring the heat. It was your moment to shine.
And today, you’re just back to the old office, because Qwikster is no more.
Andy, it’s not your fault, okay? You’re like this refurbished Lenovo Intel Dual-Core Laptop with 15.6” LED Display. It’s got a sweet 2.13GHz processor, and 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 320GB hard drive, plus Window 7 Home Premium, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a 15.6” widescreen LEDdisplay. It’s ready to work, and work hard. But nobody gives it a chance, do they? Just like you, man. Just like you.
