Napster founder Sean Parker launched an ambitious new social video platform in New York City on Tuesday.  Connected through Facebook, Airtime allows you to video-chat with strangers around the world with your same interests.  The official launch event featured demo video chats between celebrities Snoop Dogg, Jim Carrey, Ed Helms, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Joel McHale, Alicia Keys, and Olivia Munn.

Watch the promo video on Youtube.

A little piece of trivia as you watch the promotional video — Upright’s own Eric Frye was a friend of the production and can be spotted in a split-second cameo at 1:24.  Screen capture below!

Forbes’s Anthony Wing Kosner is enthusiastic about Airtime’s future success.  “The excitement of meeting new people with whom you have no ‘friends’ in common, only interests, geography or kinks, are probably enough (to propel the product).”

Try Airtime for yourself, here!
