Deliver Me To Hell - Real Zombies Attack
Not only did YouTube create an interactive medium for sharing videos but the full potential of creating "interactive" experiences with the videos has just begun to take root. An amazing example of this is the interactive zombie adventure video "Deliver Me To Hell" (maketing campaign for Hell Pizza, New Zealand) wherein the user gets to make choices inside the video and thereby affect its outcome. In effect, YouTube has not only defined the online video community, it has secretly laid the roots for a new interactive game engine.
