Before you have a coronary, the following offering does not include Tokio Hotel. Moving on, today, Skype launched a new Facebook app that lets users post birthday songs sung by popular bands to their friends’ walls — complete with said users’ own clumsy caterwauling.
Say It With Skype is a simple Facebook app that lets you choose from a series of bands — Imogen Heap, The Parlotones, Bowling For Soup, etc — who have prerecorded birthday messages. Using your computer’s camera, you can then add your own video message, and personalize the video so that it conveys the desired sentiment (what a drag it is getting old…). Messages can be shared via Facebook wall post or URL.
Just a note to Skype: My birthday is next month. Can you hook a girl up with a birthday greeting from David Bowie?
