Asa is a very interesting guy. I have to thank him somewhat for the popularity of Firefox Facts and him making mention of it on his blog (as well as giving me feedback on the eBook). Check out this interview with him as he discusses the new commercials that Mozilla is going to be pushing out to a TV near you – sometime soon.
Later today Firefox will begin broadcasting, for the first time, four “fan-produced” commercials on prime time television. Initially the ads will only run in the San Francisco and Boston regions, but this will be expanded over time.
The 4 video ads are a sampling of approximately 300 clips which were submitted to Mozilla’s Firefox Flicks program. The theme of the ads is that Firefox is “the safest, fastest and most enjoyable way to experience the Web.” The ads are also partly sponsored by Firefox fans – and Mozilla will insert the names of those sponsors at the end of each commercial.
