While most competitions require begging your friends for votes, M-Net Movies Comedy channel has taken a unique approach while showcasing its stand-up comedy festival in the month of September.
M-Net Movies Comedy is giving local comedians the chance to win. Four up-and-coming comedians created individual pre-rolls for YouTube, promoting the stand-up comedy festival on channel 104. The one with the longest view time will win R10 000.00 in cash.
Using YouTube analytics to determine who is the funniest based on time, means the playing field is fair, as multiple views from the same device won’t count. This is a first for brands using online advertising and is a great sign of brands adapting content to the particular platform.
Watch the four clips below and tell me who your favourite is.
So if you’ve had a long year so far and need something to cheer you up, remember to tune into M-Net Movies Comedy on channel 104 for plenty of stand-up on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm in September.
