Remember Google’s short and sweet Search Stories ads? Have your own naughty nerdy inspirational tale to tell? Now’s your chance! The big G recently launched the Search Stories Video Creator, so now anyone can create and upload his or her own Search Story in just three easy steps.
All you have to do is enter 7 search terms and choose what kind of search Google will perform for each term – web search, maps, image etc. –, then you pick from a set of soundtracks and that’s it! You can change your search terms and soundtrack before uploading the video to YouTube. Obviously you have to have a YouTube or Google account to be able to upload the video.
In the interest of journalism, I created my own Search Story. I’m not that happy with it, but to my credit I didn’t really have a lot of time to work on the video. Blogging is such a difficult job, you know. I have to like, wake up at 1 in the afternoon, eat, and then sleep some more until about 4pm. Then I go outside for a bit, so my skin won’t forget what sunlight feels like, and then 45 minutes before deadline, my day suddenly becomes action-packed. Intense huh? So, yes, brace yourself for mediocrity:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihPqBVUVz1c
You didn’t watch it did you? That’s okay. Go make your own Search Story, and be sure to share the YouTube link with us!
