Video Resumes Do they really work?

Video Resumes  Do they really work?
Let's get real. If you are looking for a job you are not alone. You are competing with thousands of other job seekers just like you. So how do you stand out above so many other well-qualified candidates? How do you get an employer's attention? Some folks are sending out Video Resumes instead of the usual, run-of-the-mill paper resumes. But do video resumes work? Do they really make you stand out? Will they help you land a job?

I am attempting to launch my website, the ultimate fantasy sports website where users can play each other daily for cash prizes. I wanted to make a video similar their main page). The website will be in beta testing soon, and I would like to attract users to sign up before me site launches. Basically I want to make them feel as if my website is the ultimate fantasy sports website that they need to use our services and reserve their username on my website once it's live.
