The title to this post will be lost on anyone that’s not an Eddie Murphy fan. But there’s at least one reader who will get that. The Cap’n came to my defense like a big brother wrestling down a bully.
Thank you readers for your help in fixing the Break.com situation. Seems I’m not the only person that has had his videos ripped and submitted to Break (and other sites). Sometimes I’d be flattered, but Break.com pays and gives huge exposure.
More than 1.5 million people viewed Husband is Bored at the Mall and Pennies for the Tollbooth Man on Break in the past few days. This helped me appreciate that despite lower traffic, Break commands more views to its homepage videos than YouTube.
I missed a good opportunity to brand the blog, CubeBreak and my videos. The Break folks said it was a technology glitch, and fixed the attribution to point to my EvilFist account on Break. EvilFist was my temporary alter ego that made a series of videos (see www.evilfist.com) that were a bit more provocative than my regular stuff.
I’ll update more as I get more details on how a video can appear on Break attributed to someone else — without the person knowing it happened. Puzzling. Also curious if Break will back pay me for these since typically you get $400 if your video hits the homepage.
