I was incredibly disappointed to learn that PlaceholderURL.com is a parked domain.

EDIT: Apparently that has since changed. Don't I look silly.

no actually the fine folks at lrr have procured the website for themselves. it even links to the video. ^^ http://placeholderurl.com/
(it does look a bit like a parked domain, but there's even an reference to the video: Congratulations, your designer has subscribed to our service and is obviously an intelligent and attractive individual.)

As far as ideas go this is right up there with publishing a book of lorem ipsum... I like it. In a Jackson Pollock kind of way.

So basically, this is blackmail. If your subscribers don't pay you, their customers see offensive ads.

First thing I did was go to Placeholderurl.com, I was not dissapointed in doing so.
Also that stinger was amazing.

Oh Paul, we love your child-like optimism and wonder, even in the face of soul-crushing suggestion. Another way to watch this video is that Paul is running an elaborate test to see if Graham and Kathleen are robots, like from Blade Runner.

I'm going to be honest, I find http://placeholderurl.com/ incredibly offensive. My religion forbids grey.

Not cool to do this a few days before I have to give a presentation for my finals project. This is NOT good for my stress levels.

good vid though.

Well, not necessarily. They can use the money they make with this business to fund the solar power stuff.

See, it's a Happy Ending after all. ;D

Well, people could just change their default url to something other than placeholderurl.com, but who has the time? Easier to pay someone to deal with the problem.

I have no strong feelings one way or the other.
I think we can all agree that this business proposition is.
