Shaquille O’Neal Edition of Harlem Shake Released Online, Millions of Clicks Close Behind
Chicago, IL (February 18, 2013) — Comic duo Scuba Mission is proud to announce the release of their new meme, “Harlem Shake – HARLEM SHAQ Edition.” The new hilarious web comedy video has been released to coincide with America’s weeklong fascination with intricately planned spontaneous dance parties, all while capitalizing on the 1994 popularity of media basketball personality Shaquille O’Neal.
“Colin had this idea to do a Harlem Shaq video,” said funnier Scuba Mission member Shawn Bowers. “But he wanted it to make fun of the meme, instead of what I did, which was to just do a really good version of the meme.”
“Shawn ruined my idea,” said fart poop Colin Hogan, “he made it too funny and NOW I want to RESPECT him with a AWARD CEREMONY up AUDITORIUM.”
In its pre-viral phase, the Harlem Shake – HARLEM SHAQ Edition has garnered dozens of hits and no comments. Once it goes viral, which should happen any minute, it will garner dozens of thousands of hits and maybe even a million hits too. O’Neal has not yet responded to any Tweet inquiries as of yet, but it’s still early and he needs more sleep than a lot of men because of his height and size.
The plan is to fully monetize the hit video and pursue various revenue streams through Web 2.0. This includes VOD, websites, video ringtones, message boards, licensed merchandise, documentary footage, and availability for party rental/club appearances. The video can be viewed online at this link, which is cleared to print: http://youtu.be/TwH3pAlS-bk
“If my video, that I made without the help of anyone, including the original owners of the footage, is able to reach even one college-aged child,” Bowers said. “Then I’ll have done my job. It took me half an hour to find the song for free online.”
Scuba Mission is an intimate two-man comedy duo located in Chicago, IL. With no help from anyone, they produce online videos and live comedy programs that are moderately viewed and attended. They have been a functioning unit since 2009 and are currently working on trying to get five thousand hits on a single video on Youtube, which would be an accomplishment for them.
