Placebo: Video Contest

I know this looks like it's ripped straight from a press release, but it sort of is. Anyway, I thought it was a cool idea, and I really like the band.

For the upcoming video for Placebo's new single, "Running Up That Hill," from their critically-acclaimed new album, Meds, Capitol Music Group is partnering with Motionbox for an exciting new music video, starring YOU. The new Placebo video will be a montage of Placebo's fans singing "Running Up That Hill."

Placebo's fans will submit video using Motionbox, the premiere personal video sharing service. Fans will upload videos at www.motionbox.com/placebo. The band is asking fans to submit single-camera shots of them singing their new single, "Running Up That Hill," sung in its entirety; with the deadline for submissions being April 6th.

"We are very excited to be working with Capitol Music Group," said Chris O'Brien, Motionbox's CEO & Co-founder. "Our technology will help further solidify the relationship between Placebo and their fans and we look forward to many upcoming promotions of this type."

"'This is a great opportunity to get the fans involved in one of our videos!" said the members of Placebo. "Knowing our fans, as visually diverse as they are, we expect some very creative feedback!! Could make very interesting viewing! We look forward to it!"

At www.motionbox.com/placebo, fans will be able to:
1) Download the instrumental & lyrics
2) Upload their videos after capturing video of themselves singing the song
