I was actually thinking about this a few hours ago, and then I came here and found it! But you guys make it sound like it's something from Jackass

It should show a llama farm. A nice little farm. Where the grass is green the air smells like root beer and the clouds are fluffy. One night, while they are all sleeping, mike (the llama) rises up and breaks through the gate. He runs all the way to the farmers house. Quietly, he sneaks in. The llama climbs slowly up the stairs to the bedroom. He nudges the door open....slowly walks inside....turns the light on with his nose....kicks the bed....the farmer wakes up, screaming! Mike the llama laughs, and says WASSUP!!!!!

"It's like saying give a man a Les Paul guitar and he becomes Eric Clapton, and of course that's not true, give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer and he doesn't become...whoever; he doesn't become us." - Roger Waters

A large empty white room, where a llama walks out with the Winamp logo branded on its side. It stands there and after a few seconds, bleats. A moment later a voice says, "Winamp.... Yea, it's that good.". Screen fades to black with the Nullsoft Winamp logo, and the site address under it.

Nah.
You see a crappy Windows screen, with some crappy media player on it. Some crappy sound comes out of it (what about Für Elise?). Then Mike walks in (with a Nullsoft brand on his back), and he spits on the screen.
The screen goes black. Then it returns, with Winamp! A cool skinned player, on a colorfull desktop. Beautifull sounds hit the floor.
What used to be an office, becomes a dance floor. Spotlights everywhere. Everyone's dancing.
Then the camera zooms in on the white spotlight. The Tv screen becomes completely white.
The Nullsoft Winamp logo appears (fading in), while a voice says: "Winamp, It really whips the llamas ass." with some sheep sounds on the background.

Nice, clear and short...

I'm thinking some really nice porn star type person on the screen, gets naked and dances around for a while. Then eventually it says, "Winamp, if you want more commercials like this, keep us in business".

Keep it up. I'm going to pick my three favorites from this thread, make a poll, get a winner, and produce the commercial (why wait for AOL?). I'm producing a friend's horror flick this fall and this will make for some good practice (and a fun short to run before the flick on opening night). Of course, I'll do a release as a streamable NSV.

Old western style background, camera pans right where it locks onto a man dressed in sterotypical cowboy suit, with hat, riding along on a llama. Llama of course has the Winamp logo branded on it's side. Voice-over says, "Winamp.... Yea, It's that good.". Screen fade to black with the Nullsoft Winamp logo and site address under it.


Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy playing. Empty white room, camera panning to the right where it locks onto a farmer sitting on a stool holding some shears, with a llama infront of him. The winamp logo is partially sheered onto a llama. Voice over as music is cut down a few dB, "Winamp.... Yea, It's that good.", music back to normal volume, screen fades to black with Nullsoft Winamp logo with site address under it, music still playing untill commercial ends, where the music fades out. Perhaps the llama can be seen bobbing his head to the beat, with farmer tapping foot.

Intro scene to The Lion King plays untill it gets to the rock cliff, various animals hooting and hollering. Camera cuts to a close-up of the cliff, animals still being noisy. Suddenly they stop, and hoof-beats are heard. You see hoofs step past the camera, and stop. Camera pans up and to the left where it passes over the body of a llama with the winamp logo branded on it's side, and on over to its face. Camera zooms out a bit to show the cliff in it's whole form, with the llama standing on the edge, various animals around the base bow down. While animals bowed down, the llama bleats. Voice over: "Winamp... Yea, It's that good.". The animals raise back up and continue the hooting and hollering in a supportive manner. Screen fades black, with the Nullsoft Winamp logo and site address under it.

hmmm.. some good ideas.. but an overall lack of ninjas.

Start with the camera filming a big building. cut to the roof.
There are 5 ninjas prepairing to repel down the side of the building commando style. a few flors down they crash through some windows into an office with a few people in it. one ninja kills one of the people with a throwing star while another slices the head off another person. the ninjas then force the remaining person to open a big vault thats in the wall. Person opens the vault and then gets his neck snapped. The ninjas grab some "important" documents and start to leave when confronted with the llama. The llama kicks the crap out of the ninjas and ninja blood splatters on the wall forming the Winamp logo.

hopefully that made some sence to someone. Its 1 am... I should get some sleep

First start with error messages of WiMP and Real, one after the other. with the words "Tired of thease?"

Then the Real player look and a number of WiMP skins, again with "Tired of thease?"

Then Some REALY bad visulisation along with "Tired of this?"

Then screen fades to black, followed by the winamp logo coming up on screen. "Try winamp, its free, its effective, it dosnt look like it was made by a 2 year old and best of all *whip noise* I REALY WHIPS THE LLAMMAS ARSE!" (Or backside if its for daytime) sheep bar at the end.

Camera view from behind an old beat-down bar, scummy looking background. Harvey Mandel - Tears for Eric plays in the backgroud. You can tell the place has really been used. Camera panning to the right, looking at a downward angle. People can be seen sitting, only viewed from the neck down. Ashtrays with ciggerettes, and ciggars smoldering, peanut shells, and alcohol stains are seen, as well as a shotglass or 3, both empty, full, and being drank from pan across the screen, as well as mugs of beer, as the camera continues to pan right. Camera pans onto the arm of a llama sitting on the counter. Camera continues panning untill his whole body, minuts head, shows. His chest bears the Winamp logo branded on him. Bartender's hands shown setting a fancy drink down in front of the llama. Camrea zooms out a bit and pans up a bit, to show the whole torso and head of the llama. Llama is wearing a scruffy old wide rim hat, bobbing head to music, picks up his drink and takes a sip. He sets the glass back down, tips his hat and bleats at the bartender. Voiceover: "Winamp.... Yea, it's that good.". Screen fades to black where the Winamp logo and site address is shown. Music fades out as commercial ends.
