Justin Timberlake's CES moment Video Transcript
speaker 1: I wanna introduce someone else. Our partner, Justin Timberlake. Speaker 2: All right, how are you guys doing? You're rocking it out at CES, yeah, I hear you. You look crazy. The TV long before the Internet was our supplier of true word of mouth, our originator of water cooler talk. And now with this exciting partnership with My Space, Panasonic, we're ready to take television and entertainment to the next step by upgrading it to the social networking experience. Why text your e-mail or your friends to talk about your favorite programs after (??) when you could be sharing the experience with real time interactivity from anywhere across the globe. For example, as the plot of your favorite drama unfolds, the joke of your favorites as (??) plays example, anything to do with the box, you know. Maybe you didn't like that one. Maybe you're more into moms. Or even the last second shot of your favorite team (swishes?) the net, we're giving you the opportunity to connect your favorites to your moments as they're actually happening. This is the evolution of one of our greatest inventions, the television and now we no longer have to crowd around the same one to experience it together. Historically, social has been about what you have done, possibly what you're doing right now at this moment. The future of my space is about what you're going to do, about who you're going to become. My Space TV is the 1st (??) into that future. We wanna say special thank you to Panasonic for it's faith in our vision and foresight to partner with us. Also, to the millions of MySpace users, we wanna thank you for sticking with us in this shift. We're excited about the new things that we're planning to bring you all this year. And I'm personally looking forward to all the things, the MySpace TV is and will become. Thank you very much for having us. Thank you.
