Today is the day that I became a viral video star.
A year ago I shot a cell phone video of my pug puppy jumping off a curb. It was a goofy test of the ability to send a mobile video straight to YouTube. I laughed when it got about 500 views and forgot about it.
Cut to – today. Someone ELSE captured and REuploaded MY video to MySpaceTV – where it is now:
“Top 10 Most Viewed Today” on all of MySpace for Feb 8, 2008
over 193,000 views and counting
over 3,400 comments (up 200 since I checked the total a cpl hours ago), many commenting on my “serial killer voice” :-]
Stella enjoys a Coke; photo taken with, and directly uploaded from, multiJay‘s Treo 650, because I can.
BEFORE / AFTER
1. Precious family photo is feared lost in house fire. Sadness.
2. 2nd copy of “lost” photo is discovered safe and sound across country. Elation.
3. Family dog eats said found photo. Severe grief.
4. Mangled photo undergoes extensive “scan/upload/Photoshop/download” process. Joy.
