Social media agency Qube Media is rolling out a wide-ranging online pr and user-generated content campaign for new web-based comedy show backed by Sony BMG.

The daily show, called Apollo’s Pad, is produced by Galleon Holdings plc and is set in a run-down New York nightclub run by puppets. Deviant puppets.

The show is funny, satirical and socially relevant in a warped kind of way. Think the Muppets on crack or the Fraggles after they’ve raided their parents’ liquor cabinets and you get the idea.

New comedy clips are uploaded daily to the website and all visitors can view them for free.

Qube’s social media and online pr campaign maximises on the fact Apollo’s Pad is recorded bi-weekly, giving users the opportunity to contribute sketch ideas, jokes, suggest special guest stars. They can also have a go at stand up comedy and even provide a voice-over for characters and quickly see their efforts come to fruition in the show.

A range of activity focusing on the blogosphere and social networks, enabling users to get involved at different levels, will roll out over the next few months.

Features will include the comedy sketch challenge, best stand up comedy avatar and the chance to win a pair of Apollo’s delightful pants.

“The fact Apollo’s Pad stars these amazing puppet characters with real personality and is streamed daily gives us a great opportunity to involve fans at the heart of the show’s development even down to users auditioning for a voice part,” said Andrew Seel, MD of Qube.

Comedy and music fans are urged to sign up at apollospad.com if they want to get involved.
