Ellen phones her Kiwi fans

Tue 21 Apr 2009 In: Worth Checking Out View at Wayback View at NDHA

Anything's possible is this crazy world of new media. Three Christchurch media students set a goal just a few weeks ago to visit the Ellen DeGeneres show in LA. Calling themselves Team Ellen, they YouTubed a lot. They Twittered quite a bit too. They Facebooked, of course. They also printed out a life-sized poster of Ellen for their lounge wall. They even lived on a diet of 2-minute noodles to save money for their trip. Was anyone listening? Yes, Ellen was! Here's what happened when she gave them a call. This episode - and future episodes which will feature Team Ellen live in the studio will screening on TVOne at 3pm weekdays (new episodes are broadcast in NZ a week after their American screening).
