Rhett and Link is the comedic duo that uses its power of humor and song for good (marketing) not evil (political parody). They’ve launched a Supernote contest, and I’m not exactly sure how it works. But they made a video about it, and as a team captain I had to follow-up with my own.
I hope Rhett and Link will use all of the entries to create a song, but the official deal is that the winning team gets some prize and the longest note singer gets a song made for them. It would appear your safe bet is that ShayCarl will win — he has early 200 entries while the rest of us have 10-70 or so. Michael Buckley is in second place using his secondary blogger channel, and promises to use his official “What the Buck” channel if he needs to – just to seal the deal.
It’s interesting to see who can compel people to make responses. ShayCarl has two weapons: his midwestern charm and his relatively recent life to weblebrity status. He also begs for his viewers to join the team. I’ve done less one-to-one interaction lately, and that certainly doesn’t help.
In any event, time will tell if this is another forgettable fad or something that lives on like the “hug campaign.”
