Bar Mitzvah 2.0 – Sponsored by Revver and YouTube

I had a brainstorm session with my good friend Sheldon F. from Toronto. He did not know it was a brainstorm session. He won’t know until he reads this later.

I was just complaining about the coming costs of two Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and the travel to Toronto ahead for all the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs of my nieces and nephews and kids of friends – OYYYYYYYYYYY :( :( .

At first I thought – “What would an Intel executive do :) .”

Too easy – “Cash Bar”! BUT, I did that at my wedding and I still hear about it!

Screw the whole Bar than, I will just call it a Mitzvah and people can tune in live at YouTube and watch my kids get BarMitzvah’d. They can throw candy in the comfort of their own homes, watch the speeches and candle lighting on demand at their own leisure and send the money they saved on airfare to the kids directly. Chai never looked this good.

The demographic will be great for advertisers. Mogen-David, Apple, Amex, Tiffany’s. I will pit Skype vs. Vonage for the broadband exclusivity and Revver vs. YouTube. Cha-Ching!


Off to GoDaddy again.

    You throw candy at weddings, not Bar Mitzvahs. And the online voyeurism concept has been around forever (webcams anyone?).

    They failed when porn was being offered. Who would pay to watch little Jacob’s big day?

    YPN is in for the official WIFI sponsor at the bar mitzvah but we also want branding on the goody bags and lanyards… LOL! I love that you have a post category for bar mitzvah 2.0…it’s a category of one…but what can you do? oy!
