Obama Re-election Commercial embedded in dollar bill!
Dollar Bill | 2/21/2012 | Jeffo

Posted on 02/21/2012 9:51:28 AM PST by jeffo

OK, I just did this so I can confirm it... with a smart phone get a WIMO content reader... point it at the right side of a new dollar bill. Once it finds the embedded code you will be treated to an Obama re-election commercial. WTF... is this old news I missed or something? When did we start advertising on the money in the first place, and how is this legal?

It’s not the money you nincompoop. If true, the software reads something that already exists and links you to a website.

You could program the software to recognize your own name and link it to anything you want.

Sorry for the ninompoop comment. I was trying to be silly. But it sounds crass in hindsight. :o)

OK more info... the dollar I used was a 2006 so obviously not embedded in the dollar... the Obama people paid the makers of the WIMO app (I am using a droid) to play that video when it recognizes a $1.00 bill.

This doesn’t have anything to do with the dollar bill or the US Treasury. WiMO just maps an image to some video. Some clown mapped the images on the dollar bill to an Obama campaign video - run the WiMO client on your Android phone, aim the camera at a dollar bill, and the video plays. It only matters in the WiMO client’s little world - no big deal.

My boss did it to a $100 bill and it goes to the music site rocnation.com - I would be interested to know if WiMO is charging advertising fees for this.

I have two magic quarters. My uncle gave them to me when I was a kid. When you stick them in your ears, the sound of everything changes.

I try to keep to a strict rule of “no namecalling.” But now and then.....I just can’t help it so I keep it at a childish level.

I considered Cotton Headed Nini-Muggin. But that is more for a gaff than strict stupidity/ignorance.

Listen, keep this to yourself and it will prove worth your time.

I am a diplomat in an African village. I come from royalty and am very wealthy. But I am in hiding and cannot get access to my money or else they will find me. I need to get the money in your checking account so that I can get to it. I will reward you for this and make you rich. Please send me your account information along with a blank check, your social security number and your account password. Then I’ll be able to deposite $1 Billion in your account.

The carrot soon caught on in England as both a food and a fashion accessory. Ladies would often use carrot tops to decorate their hats.

It's a little known fact that the helicopters are actually a dark green, not black.

THEY want you to think the helicopters are black so that you look totally crazy spouting off on black gubmint helicopters. THEY can the turn around and say, "Black helicopters? We don't even own any of those. All ours are dark green. See -- that guy's just crazy."

OBAMA ON NEW DOLLAR BILL

WASHINGTON – The White House has approved the redesign of U.S. currency. Barack Obama will be on the new dollar bill.

The Obama Administration feels that the American dollar is in bad need of a makeover. They have partnered with the Dollar ReDe$ign Project to pick a new design for U.S. currency. Currently, the design that the administration likes best was done by Dowling Duncan (a British duo), which features a unique vertical design. It also features President Obama on the one dollar bill.

“We love the Dowling Duncan look. They’ve come up with a creative design and put President Obama where he belongs… on number 1,” said David Axelrod, Senior Adviser to President Obama.

The Dollar Redesign Project was organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith. He is still soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.

Here’s the web site for The Dollar Redesign Project.

“Don’t waste your time submitting a design, it’s a done deal,” said Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff. The President wants “change” in the currency and we’ve unanimously picked Dowling Duncan’s work. Fed Chairman, Benjamin Bernanke, has signed off on our choice for the redesign. We intend to have the money in circulation by June, 2011.”

Emanuel went on to say that there are plans to redo U.S. coins as well. “We don’t need a complete redesign of our coins, but we do want to put President Obama on the penny and move President Lincoln to the nickel. Thomas Jefferson, who was on the nickel, will be… discontinued.” Republican Congressman Paul Ryan suggested President Obama be put on both the “nickel and dime” instead of the penny.

Another American icon might also be replaced. “Uncle Sam is outdated,” said Axelrod. “We need to update this icon as well. It will now be Uncle Barack.”

Republicans are apoplectic about the changes the Administration is proposing. “They won’t get this passed when we get control of the house,” said Minority Leader John Boehner. “Typical Republicans, they want to block everything, even a little meaningless design issue,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. “It doesn’t matter what they think, we’re going to pass this and every American will be carrying Obama dollars in their wallets and purses come June, 2012.”

FYI: The Obama dollar will reportedly be worth $0.47.

You people are pathetic. This is a real thing. And from the iTunes site (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wimo/id347755159?mt=8) it looks like WiMO did this as an example of their technology... but does this not count as free advertising = political contribution in kind that must be reported? Does it interest anyone that WiMo Reality is in the same building complex as NBC/Universal? Nah, nothing to see here I guess.

Wow.
