In order to promote the new Simpson's movie, Burger King and Fox created what they hoped to be an awesome Simpson's campaign called Simpsonizeme. The concept of the site is to allow users to upload a photo of themselves and get simpsonized. The simpsonsizeme site analyzes your face, transforming people into citizens of the fictional Springfield. Thus allowing people to create their own unique Simpsons Characters just like the guest stars on the popular tv show, ala Rudy Giuliani, Bono from U2, Natalie Portman, LeBron James, Yao Ming, James Caan, Tony Hawk and countless other celebs.
Unfortunately, I tried doing a couple of funny pics for this blog and my simpsonized results are lousy. The page is getting hammered with traffic so if you're lucky enough to get on, then you have to have a very specific size photo with a white background and then if it uploads your file after taking an eternity to load it still might reject the file and not allow you to simpsonize yourself. Even the end product that was produced after about 45 minutes on the simpsonizeme returned a photo that didn't resemble the original. Oh well, another great viral marketing campaign that didn't meet its potential, so much for make your own simpson. I wonder if Bart or Homer was doing the coding? I'll give it another shot tomorrow. If you guys have any better results please drop me a comment.
