View Full Version : What if ? viral website idea.

10-05-2011, 12:42 AM
I was watching my favorite Ron Paul speech and thought of an idea that seems to have potential to me.Please tell me what you think about it.

The idea would be a whole website based on this speech :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqAF-Alc7CM I would use this edited version.

The website would be a simple as possible, a title, the 2 videos and maybe the transcript of the speech.Following that it would be pages where Ron Paul supporters could fill in there "What if ?".
The only definitive detail I have thought about would be a one "What if ?" post per person and a character limit to really give the visual impression of ALL the INDIVIDUAL supporters going through pages of text.
After collecting enough content I could see the website going viral.

I hope you can see it as I do, thanks in advance for you're thoughts.

What's the difference between the two videos besides the music (I always liked the music to the orig best)?

Anyways, I like this idea. The simplest way to do it, would be to set up a wordpress for it (wordpress websites seem to climb to the top of google rankings almost efortlessly). Something like, whatifthepeoplewokeup.wordpress.com (or, create a domain whatifthepeoplewokeup.com -- I'm sure someone else could come up with a more efficient domain).

I had never heard of FML or MLIA but no, no voting system just pages of supporters and there "What if ?" comment.There is no difference between the 2 videos except the music and graphics, the original would there to show this really came from Ron himself and only music and graphics where added.Wordpress might be easier but would not have the same effect, most of the website would just be pages of text which I believe makes a powerful statement.

I made a quick montage of what it would look like so you may have a better visual, I would put a "latest "What If ?" contributions box somewhere in there I think (The "What If ?" content here is from the speech itself and a few I made up).

ps : Small Typo at the end of the 2nd page, it should read "Add your" and not "Add you".
