Living the Sheen Dream in Winnipeg.

Well friends it looks like Winnipeg has done it again.  First it was a trickle with Kitty Midnight Madness .  Then the trickle became a river with Maria Aragon and her YouTube sensation flooding the world and making Lady Gaga cry.

This however is total internet anarchy at its finest.  Local copywriter Jarrett Moffatt is living the Sheen dream in style.  His parody website displays a large talking head in the likeness of Charles himself.  Clicking on Sheen’s mellon produces one of the hundreds of ghastly quotes he has given in interviews during his recent troubles with the producers of Two and a Half Men.

Live the Sheen Dream has accumulated over 16 million hits in just a few days of operation,  243 000 “Likes” on Facebook and almost 12 000 distinct tweets on Twitter.

All of this from a humble Winnipegger who wanted to sell a couple of T-Shirts.  Not bad Jarrett, not bad at all.

Story Update: I have just learned that the Live the Sheen Dream website has been having technical difficulties due to the incredible amount of traffic it is receiving.  The servers are unable to handle the traffic, but techs are working on a solution as I type this.

Going Viral!

I know from the many, many comments that I get every day on here and on my other blog feeds, Facebook and Twitter, that I have the best readers on the planet.   Apparently the world agrees with me, since I posted the my last Friday Fun Video, Kitty Midnight Madness has started to go viral on YouTube around the globe.

The Kern-Hill Furniture inspired ad staring Andy Hill, has made hearts pitter patter for lovable rescue kittens here and apparently everywhere.  From Winnipeg the news has spread to Fort Frances, Ontario and even far-flung Miami, Florida.  Where a drinking game was invented in honour of the video. No doubt causing many many college aged students to swear off Tequila and Kittens for the foreseeable future.

Approaching 320,000 hits as of February 10 it’s expected to be a certified viral sensation, one million hits, as of this weekend.  No one seems to know why videos like this go ballistic but cuteness certainly seems to be helping this one.  So spread the word, and get those lines of communication buzzing.  Let’s make Kitty Midnight Madness the internet sensation it truly deserves to be.

For all of you who have not yet seen this heartwarming video, here you go. Enjoy!

Friday Video Fun 2

Happy Friday everyone!  The work week is finally drawing to a close and the weekend beckons weary bodies to its warm embrace.  May everyone enjoy a nice weekend of staying up late and getting into all sorts of trouble followed by sleeping in till noon.

Today’s post features a video with a message.  Filmed on behalf of the Winnipeg Humane Society Andy Hill, son of Winnipeg’s legendary furniture huckster Nick Hill, invites everyone to “Come on Down” to the Humane Society for its annual Kitty Midnight Madness.

On a serious note the Winnipeg Humane Society  is stuffed to the rafters with cats and kittens this time of year and is looking for good homes for many cute and cuddly animal friends.  If you find yourself in need of a fuzzy animal companion and are in a position to care for dog or cat please consider the Humane Society before hitting one of the many pet stores in the city.  These fluffy buddies have just as much love to give as the store-bought kind and are just as deserving of a good home.

So Come on Down to the Winnipeg Humane Society and find yourself a new friend.

The Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way just off Waverley St in South Winnipeg.  Its hours of operation are Mon-Fri (Noon till 8 pm), Sat (10 am till 6 pm), Sun (Noon-6 pm)

If you are in need of new furniture head on down to Kern-Hill Furniture 660 Nairn Ave.  Just tell Andy that Bob sent ya!
