Merge, a Burr Ridge-based technology company, has set up a YouTube-esque video jukeboxes at several area bars. To use, you upload videos to the site, then text a code to the service when you're out at, say John Barleycorn or Moe's Cantina. The jukebox will then switch from whatever random video it was playing to yours, all for free. So far it's almost entirely commercials and "Family Guy" scenes.
