YouTube is partnering with American Idol host/power television producer Ryan Seacrest on a contest, Small Talk. Small Talk sounds like Kids Say The Darndest Things for the internet generation, but with Seacrest and his perfectly gelled hair in lieu of Bill Cosby and his colorful sweaters.
YouTube users can ask their kids questions from a list provided by the site, and upload the funniest or most charming responses. Top picks will be featured on the Small Talk Channel, with the winner snagging a cool $100,000.
YouTube has locked up Toyota as the presenting sponsor of the contest, with the auto maker promoting its new Sienna minivan. The 10 questions are all car related (i.e. “WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s your favorite part of a car?” or “WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the strangest thing mommy or daddy have put in your car?”)
Think your kid is the star of the next Charlie Bit My Finger? Only one way to find out…
