What would you think about having your favorite artist not only autograph memorabilia for you but also personalize a video message with words that you compose? This is the first time major sports figures and artists have signed memorabilia and provided personalized video messages that are delivered directly to fans via the Internet.
you can choose from celebrities in sports, TV, film, music and more. Once you have found your favorite celebrity you can choose what type of merchandise you want signed and place your order.
The rules are simple. Just tell your favorite celebrity what you want them to say. They in turn will send a message to you or someone you know. It could be a birthday greeting, a good luck wish, even a super shout-out! Or you can basically interview them and have them answer a specific question.
The hype to purchase impulsively is great, I must say. Each celeb has a specified date that they will be filming and the promo on the site warns: "Get 'Em While They're Hot! Don't wait. There are a limited number of experiences available with each celebrity. So, if you see something you like, go for it … before it sells out"
Now the question is what does it cost to obtain personalized videos and memorabilia from your favorite celeb? Well... you didn't think they were doing it out of the goodness of their hearts did you?
Here's a couple of examples of the swag and accompanying price tags offered by some of your favorite celebs... as listed with the promo ptiches from the site...
- Selena Williams - The strength, the style and overt jubilation of Serena Williams is on full display in this on-court action 8 X 10 glossy. Add Serena’s autograph and the personalized video download message for $149.00
- NKOTB bring it home to where it all started on this 24 X 36 poster with the Boston skyline in the background. All 5 members of NKOTB will sign the product but only one member will deliver the personalized video message for $250.00
- (And for an additional $24.95 you can upgrade you personalize celebrity experience package by odering a DVD)
New Kids on the Block - the band who over the years has sold 70 million albums who defined the genre "boy band" are back and currently on tour in support of their first new album since 1994 with 2008’s The Block. The NKOTB event will take place on July 10, 2009 with fans receiving their video experiences within 48 hours.
Here's a sample from Joey McIntyre...
Sorry if you are a LOST fan, most of the cast members' dates are sold out including Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox.
While these video experiences might seem a bit rich for some of us, I can tell you from my experience interacting with the NKOTB fans, price is not a deal-breaker when it comes to a BLOCKHEAD getting close to their boys in the band!
