CAMBIO & AOL TEAM UP WITH iJUSTINE TO CREATE
EXCLUSIVE FAN ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM

LOS ANGELES - July 2, 2012-Cambio, a leading online entertainment platform for teens and young adults, has teamed up with one of the most influential internet personalities on the web, iJustine. The partnership will center around a program titled "Do The Craze" in which iJustine will invite users to create a video where they imitate a hot viral trend -- for a chance at internet fame and a small fortune. In addition to iJustine, Cambio has partnered with Trendera, a leading trend forecasting and consulting company, to forecast and identify the hottest emerging trends on the web.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with iJustine -- as an early innovator in the user-generated web video community, she's had a profound influence on the very audience we're looking to serve," says Cambio General Manager Nathan Coyle. "By working in conjunction with Trendera, we're excited that this will be a unique program, giving fans a great way to showcase their creativity and imagination."

Exclusively broadcast through Cambio and AOL, "Do the Craze" will feature iJustine performing a new hot viral trend every four weeks, as identified by Trendera. Viewers will then be asked to mimic the featured trend and submit videos of their performance. The most entertaining videos will earn the opportunity to be featured across Cambio and AOL with the top submission winning $1,000.

"Trendera is so excited to work with Cambio and iJustine," says Trendera CEO Jane Buckingham. "Creativity and self-expression are the hallmarks of Gen Y. We can't wait to see how people interpret the memes and take them to the next level."

To support the project Trendera will also become part of the Cambio community, blogging weekly about the best videos and memes the web has to offer. Check out Cambio beginning July 2, 2012 to "Do the Craze" at www.cambio.com/dothecraze.
