Robbing Banks and Tying Ties on Metacafe

October 29, 2007 9:00 AM

Metacafe launched a new channel last week called Director’s Cut. It’s sponsored by Adobe and is billed as a viewer-nominated, editor-approved channel that “honors the art of storytelling and the craft of filmmaking.”

The channel is live here.

Now I’m all for packaging content in new ways, and I also say kudos to Metacafe for snagging an advertiser to support the section.

But what I don’t get is that some of these videos have been around for a while, such as the video on how guys and gals shower differently.

So I sort of wonder: Is this what viewers want? Are they looking for a bookmark site for well-known online videos?

In any case, this video amused me.
