A new social site, IBeatYou just launched where users can make up a contest, such as â€œbest group lip-dub music videoâ€ or "cutest feet" or â€œbest beard,â€ then submit entries and compete with others to be voted the winner.
The celebrity connection comes from the fact that the site is co-founded by Baron Davis of NBA's Golden State Warriors and Cash Warren, Jessica Alba's fiance.
The number 1 video right now is Jessica Alba in her first music video, lip-synching to Panic at the Disco's â€œBack to the Streets.
Here is what Jessica said in her myspace blog about the site:
â€ We shot a quirky group lip dub music video for ibeatyou. Check it out!! We invited a bunch of users from the site and put this together last Saturday. If you think you and your friends or you and your co-workers can compete:Bring it!! Upload your videos to ibeatyou.com and let's see who gets crowned King:lol! The site is open now so anyone can sign up."
