Paramount has finally joined the Youtube generation, by offering thousands of classic movie clips for facebook members through their new application VooZoo.Â The clips will come from a wide range of movies, from classics likeÂ Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” to Tom Hanks in “Forrest Gump” and Eddie Murphy’s trademark laugh from “Beverly Hills Cop”.Â
The movie clips will have an advertisement offering the DVD of the movie for sale. Paramount doesn’t have specific income goals from the experiment, which took over a year for staffers to choose and label movie clips.
Â It’s an interesting move, and it’s most likely only a matter of months before other major studios follow.Â It’s interesting they are currently only offering VooZoo on Facebook. Members can send videos to each other (no word yet on embedding them in other sites).Â This does make it a bit limited compared to youtube, but should also boost facebook (not that it needs boosted) even more as THE social network of the moment.
