JibJab has partnered up with Major League Baseball Advanced Media to bring you their latest Starring You! Video with a Major League twist—Take Me Out to the Ball Game! Upload photos and cast yourself and your friends in a fun animated video, showing support for your favorite MLB team.
The ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ campaign launched yesterday on JibJab.com, MLB.com and the thirty MLB Club websites. JibJab co-founder and CEO, Gregg Spiridellis, says, “As baseball fans we are thrilled to be in business with MLBAM. With 30 MLB Clubs to choose from, and up to five team members to personalize, we hope this provide hours of entertainment for friends and families across the country and world.”
So how does it work? Just head on over to MLB.JibJab.com or your favorite MLB Club’s site and choose your favorite team. You can see a listing of all the MLB teams in the image below.
Once you’ve picked out your team, you can customize up to five team players with your head and the heads of all your friends that share your passion for your favorite team. (Or, you can piss off your die-hard Yankee fan friends by putting their heads on Red Sox players, Mwaah-ha-ha-ha). When you’re video is done, share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter, email it, or download it for $4.99 to save it forever on your computer or iPhone, or upload it to YouTube and Facebook.
I made a ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ video of myself and my favorite Red Sox fans supporting the best MLB team there is! Go Sox!
