Well, the critics have spoken. And so far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to everyone who watched our music video on YouTube (all 2,182 views and counting...) and shared it with friends. Ben and I ask that you continue to share it with anyone who might enjoy it.
Of course, as you can imagine, fame has its cost. Ben and I can no longer take the Path train for fear of paparazzi. Even buying eggs has become an adventure. Still, we would not trade it for the world.
Family, friends, Seton Hall students, fellow bloggers, South Orange residents, random internet surfers -- all of them have had very kind things to say about our video. From Ben's "butterfly foxtrot" to my "Sam Cassell testicle dance," the video has a little something for everyone. However, nobody's response has meant more to us than the players themselves.
We facebook messaged the entire team the night before we released the video as part of our "soft" launch. Afraid they would think we were totally deranged, we naturally were hesitant. Their comments, however, confirmed our suspicions... They love us unconditionally.
Here's what just a few of them had to say about the video:
John Garcia: "thanks alot man..that $%*&'s cool as #*&%..thanx 4 the vid
Paul Gause: "yall funny as #@*^ &*^% was crazy nice job fellas"
Melvyn Oliver: "laughing my *&^ off dat ^&%# was crazy funny......good *@#^ fellas
Brian Laing: "lol thats &$*# funny lol"
While they might not be Ebert and Roeper, their praise was way more meaningful. Thanks for watching and for not issuing any restraining orders.
Stay tuned for the sequel...
