The first video advert inside a print title has been published inside the American magazine Entertainment Weekly.

The small screen, built into a cardboard insert, contains an advert for Pepsi Max and trailers for US TV network, CBS.

There are also in-built speakers, so the viewer can hear the advert too.


More here.

I heard about this a few weeks ago on the Kim Komando show and thought it sounded pretty cool.

Until I realized sooner or later magazines may be full of these things. How would you like to be bombarded with a video starting up everytime you turn to the next page? And are these limited to only 1 per page? Open up a magazine and all of a sudden several people start yacking at you?!

No thanks.
