Illustration Alum Evan Spiridellis passed along this exciting news about the success of JibJab, a site he co-created with his brother, Gregg.
Four years ago we launched ‘This Land’ which, after almost 5 years of hard work, brought us overnight recognition. Last night we had the honor of world premiering our 2008 election parody on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno! That was our 12th premiere on the show in the past 4 years and after the west coast airing of the show the video went live on our newly remodeled website. We have been working hard for the past 9 months redesigning and rebuilding JibJab.com to better reflect who we are as a studio and a company and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
A final bit of news is that the new video contains a Starring You!® component which enables you to cast yourself, friend or family member in the grand finale. Since we launched Starring You! less than a year ago our audience has created over 12 MILLION heads (which is larger than the population of our home state, New Jersey!)
So, if you have a few minutes please swing by http://jibjab.com and, if you like what we’ve created, share it with your friends. Or better yet put your friends IN it and then share it!
Bonus: Here’s a short video about JibJab’s creation.
Way to go Evan and Gregg–keep up the exciting work!
