iMeet® Powers the World’s Greatest Meetings. Ever.
Founding Fathers, Roman Renegades, Ailing Artist Use iMeet to Shape History
Mar 9, 2011
ATLANTA, March 9, 2011 - While iMeet contends its only competitor is teleportation, you may not know that the service enables users to shift time. Or at least iMeet’s ads do.
From PGi, iMeet gives everyone their own personal meeting room online, where up to 15 people can meet in video. iMeet has been labeled as revolutionary. So it’s only fitting that some of the most hallowed U.S. revolutionaries, including Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, are featured using iMeet in the service’s new ad campaign launching today.
The campaign’s three on-air spots give viewers a peek at how the world’s greatest meetings could have happened using iMeet. In the ads, productivity (and fun) will be on display as our Forefathers review an early draft of the Declaration of Independence, treachery is afoot as Roman conspirators plot the demise of Caesar and an embarrassed Van Gogh shares the risks of cutting one’s own hair.
iMeet’s simple and intuitive features include the ability for up to 15 people to meet using their webcam, while sharing pictures, bios, contact information and social network profiles.
The iMeet advertisements will air throughout March and during the 2011 NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament. March Madness® fans are encouraged to use iMeet to talk trash and to choose their brackets wisely - one false move and your favorite team could leave you saying, “Et tu, Brute?”
To join the community of more than 13,000 current iMeet users and to get your personal iMeet room, visit www.imeet.com.
