Check out a little viral video I just made for the song Funny Cats off my album Flowers. It’s got a bunch of LOLcats images and funny cat videos from YouTube cut to my song.
There were two inspirations for this video. 1) I actually like these stupid cat videos on the internet and feel like the effervescent silliness of them fits the song well 2) they get 40 Million hits on YouTube. So the idea here is to see if combining my song with this kind of viral content can make it get more hits and more importantly reach people who aren’t blog-reading, social-networking music nerds but instead regular people who watch funny cat videos on YouTube. I’ll let you know how it works.
