Hello, Hulu!

News Corp and NBC Universal just announced the name of their Internet Video joint venture: Hulu. Not Hello or Hula, but Hulu. Apparently, this will be big in Malaysia; according to Wikipedia, Hulu Terengganu is a place in Malaysia. Everywhere else, it will cause people to scratch their heads.

The good news is that there's synergy with Vudu, the VOD set-top box company in Silicon Valley that's coming out of stealth mode. If the companies merge, you could get HuluVudu, maybe with a pupu platter on the side.
