John Bradbury has just emailed me to let me know that he’s just seen (and posted about) an advertisement for Gawker Media blog Gizmodo on MTV.

Like John – I’ve not heard of a blog advertising itself on mainstream media like this. It’s quite the promotional campaign they’ve got going there over at Gawker.

Update: John has corrected his mistake – the ad was not for Gizmodo but for Gizmondo.

  • I guess that’s a good campaign, but to be honest, even if i do become THAT big…i won’t advertise this way….


  • Hi there,

    While this would be cool, unfortunately it is not true. I’m told the ad was for Gizmondo, a gaming device.


  • Okay don’t I feel the complete boob. Joel Johnson editor of Gizmodo just contacted me to clarify the situation, and it seems I was mistaken. The advert I actually saw was for Gizmondo a new hand held games console.

    After admitting I watched ‘The Rise of Britney’ too :oops:

    (Sorry Darren)

    Ouch…for the Britney thing, the Gizmondo thing can be forgiven…=P

  • Hey…leave the guy alone…Britney has been known to make me rise…I’m sure you all are no different.
