Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
ChiWay Entertainment, the nation’s premier provider of viral video clips to TV shows, commercials, and films is set to launch a brand new video website, JukinVideo.com, on Friday, December 16, 2011, designed primarily for the 18-34 male demographic with stunts, fails, extreme sports and webisode videos. Providing content to such TV shows as NBC’s “The Tonight Show”, Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0”, and MTV’s “Ridiculousness”, ChiWay Entertainment’s newest site will feature a user-friendly database of recognizable viral video hits and range of funny video clips. Jonathan Skogmo, President and CEO of ChiWay Entertainment, explained, “We’re excited to work with content creators who have unique videos that make audiences laugh, cry, scream, cringe and sing, and distribute their work to the networks.”
To bring this exclusive content to the masses, JukinVideo is assembling a lineup of original content producers, who are known as Jukin Members, to upload their videos to the site. Comedian J. Chris Newberg (America’s Got Talent) and TV personality Brooke Hogan (Brooke Knows Best), among others, are already signed on as Jukin Members. JukinVideo will continually seek out creative video producers who deserve more distribution to add engaging content to the site.
JukinVideo.com will be the outlet that ChiWay Entertainment uses to showcase its' hottest content. What makes ChiWay unique is that it is the most recognized agency that acquires, licenses and distributes content. For example, ChiWay acquired a viral video called, Mountain Biker Gets Taken Out by BUCK http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2oymHHyV1M, did a revenue share deal with the content creator, and then distributed it to the major TV networks. This video has received over 12 million views, 26,000+ Likes, 14,800+ Comments and was shown on The Today Show, ESPN, Yahoo! News home page, and BBC.
In conjunction with the launch of the new website, JukinVideo is taking the opportunity to raise awareness for the Rob Dyrdek Foundation – an organization (headed up by the star of MTV’s Ridiculousness, Rob Dyrdek) that builds “skate plazas” in urban communities, offering youth a safe place to legally skateboard. The foundation works with municipalities to design and build the “Safe Spot Skate Spots,” and gives free skateboards to youth organizations. “Rob and The Dyrdek Foundation do an incredible job of encouraging young people to live an active lifestyle and creating opportunities for them to do so”, said Jonathan Skogmo, President and CEO of ChiWay Entertainment.
To celebrate the JukinVideo Launch and raise funds and awareness for the Rob Dyrdek Foundation, ChiWay Entertainment will host a holiday party for entertainment industry leaders and digital media influencers on the launch day, December 16, 2011 in Los Angeles. All proceeds donated will directly benefit the Rob Dyrdek Foundation.
