For the first time ever, movie-goers can buy tickets through Shazam!

Everytime I hear a song on the radio or in a store and I can't, for the life of me, figure out who the artist is or think of the name of the song, I always Shazam it.  Works basically every time.

For those of you who don't know what Shazam is, it's an app you can get on your iPhone or Android that listens to a clip of the song and then finds the artist and title for you so you no longer have to wonder, "who the heck is this?!"  Recently, a few advertisers have been integrating Shazam into their commercials to help create a more friendly user experience for their customers.

MIB:3 and Shazam have teamed up to give movie-goers their first ever opportunity to purchase tickets on their phone for a theater in their local area without moving more than their thumbs.

All you have to do is download the Shazam app, if you don't have it already(which you should), and when you see the TV spot, click on Shazam.  Once you land on the Shazam landing page, you will have an option to go buy tickets.  Once you click on the buy tickets option, you'll be taken straight to the Fandango page for MIB:3 and you can purchase tickets for your local area.

If you don't want to wait to find the commercial on TV, check it out right here at CraveOnline:
