Videoblogs on ABC August 6th

Here's a promo video for the new ABC videoblog show, i-CAUGHT. If they end up interviewing the people who made and are in the videos, to get the personal story behind the making of the videos, this show might end up being something more than America's Funniest Videos.

Video at the new speed of life...
Did you capture news as it happened?
Were you the first on the scene of a crime?
Did you catch something that’s just too good not to share?


using a cell phone, webcam, camcorder
(anything with a lens).

to i-Caught for the world to see!
If you decide to upload a video, you must agree to the agree to the i-CAUGHT Terms & Conditions.
