    Guys, I hope that you are capitalizing from the Cigar Guy - Tiger Woods - Ryder Cup internet hoopla. It's only going to last another day or so, I sent something before I left for work and it's converted close to $6.00 already. (I'm sorry but that's good money for me). The only reason I'm sharing anything is because I'm at work and can't do anything else. By the time I can work on it, it will be old news.

    There are a bunch of videos on Youtube, with photoshop video clips. Super funny!
    1. Create a page on one of your websites, it really doesn't matter which one

    2. Embed the Youtube clip or photos - (there's about 4 really funny clips that scroll through all the photos that were photoshopped).

    3. Put a cpa offer banner (a zip submit for quick conversion) on top and bottom of your embeded video.

    4. Tweet it out to all you twitter followers, and the send it out through you facebook pages. Facebook won't see it as spam, just a guy passing on a funny video. Then people will pass it on as well.

    5. Find the person in your Facebook friends who has the most friends, and post it on his wall.

    6. Done!

    It's cheap and worth a try. Don't think that now 100 people will be doing it because they won't. 1000 people will read it, but maybe 5 will try. If it doesn't work you only wasted about 15 - 20 minutes and no money invested. If all I made was $6.00 I would be happy.

    Edit: Just checked my adsense account make that another $1.53.

    Looks nice, maybe I can do that, actually I have several funny videos and even maybe I can create a new channel for those and stream it on a new site.
    Thanks for the idea.

    Looks like I'm going to close out the day at 6 zip submits, and 1 one page offer for $10.60 and $3.35 in Adsense.

    Not a ton of money, but I have worked harder on things that earned a ton less. lol!!!!

    I still don't get the big deal about this cigar guy. So he was in a photo in the background with Tiger Woods so why is it such a big deal?

    I noticed it at the top of google trends and have seen it posted up a few places forums etc.. One article said some are claiming its one of the best sports photos ever taken? Not sure about that but it's definitely hot rate now. It's a funny photo the guy is so out of place looking it almost seems photoshop'd but isn't which is a lot of the appeal to people imo. It's also getting potoshop'd all over the place spreading it more.

    Yeah, I read that too. I thought that was a pretty bogus statement, "The best sports photo of all time". No way, but it's still pretty good. The ball coming at the camera is a once in a generation shot. The cigar guy is just a casualty of the whole thing. The best photoshopped picture I saw, was the Cigar Guy posing like Mahummad Ali. It's hilarious.

    I also got it from Google trends, I check Google trends every morning.
