MySpace debuted it’s new front page design this week (among other user oriented tweaks.) Today, however, was the premier front page advertising takeover. It features a skin and a video box for the new Batman movie. The player worked very well, and I am happy to see that they used a wide screen player instead of a square box. The skin works pretty well, especially because Batman is a cool brand. Although the design does happen to clash a little bit with the “MySpace blue” of the navigation. I am skeptical that Crest toothpaste would be received as well by users of the site. Like any site that matures into a revered brand, MySpace will have to be careful choosing which advertisers to feature in order to manage the spot’s value.
