Amazon.com Inc. today announced the launch of free, personalized Amazon Video Gift Cards, which use JibJab’s JibJab Starring You tool so consumers can add their own or friends’ photos to the resulting musical clip.
JibJab is one of the earliest companies to embrace the power of viral videos, making enough of a cultural dent during the 2004 U.S. presidential election that they were invited on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to show their video of George W. Bush and John Kerry singing “This Land is Your Land.”
For Amazon, JibJab has created more than 50 simple-to-use humorous templates suitable for over a dozen gift-giving occasions. Gifters can use one or more photos; the template automatically adjusts accordingly.
The video cards are designed so recipients can keep the gift card private while sharing the video through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and email. The gift itself can be any amount up to $2,000 and never expires.
