Addictive TV remix Iron Man

May 5, 2008

Addictive TV give the Iron Man movie their particular style of remix mashup bootleg that they’re famous for.

I know that New Line Cinema got them to mixup Shoot Em Up and Snakes On A Plane [below]. But I wonder if Paramount commissioned them to do Iron Man?

Of course the marketers wet dream is that you get a ‘user generated reaction’. Your audience takes the initiative to cut-and-paste-and-remix your content creating something more real than the art directed client approved version. Those clips then go viral and become the media for your film. That said commissioning a crew like Addictive TV takes it to a whole new level and hopefully throws down the gauntlet for other creatives to have fun with the clips…

I want to see great content like this becoming the trailer for the film in the first place, rather than being an extention or addition to the usual formats.
