The other day while Kyle and I were working on some projects we stumbled across this little did giving a motivational speech about learning to ride a bike. You can see the original video by clicking here.
Truthfully, this kid actually inspired us to do a bunch of stuff that day. We accomplished a ton. Then we decided to make this video to accomplish the impossible…
This girly has gotten about 17,000,000 views this week and a ton of hate mail and press. Poor girl. She’s only 13 and I’m sure she never expected anything like this to happen. Anyhow, we had to shoot a spoof. Kyle Cease pioneered the video and comedian Travon Free plays the rapper guy. Our buddy Diego edited the entire thing and Lana and I had small little cameos.
Grab some popcorn, cuz it’s Friday. errr…. I mean Wednesday.
Kyle did a follow up video today to give Rebecca Black a bit of encouragement. This is some really good advice for anyone dealing with haters or nay sayers.
Have you ever wanted to propose to a girl but didn’t have enough scratch to purchase an engagement ring? Well, you may be in luck.
My buddy Kyle Cease is giving away his ex fiance’s engagement ring in a contest and all you have to do is leave a comment on the absolute worst way to leave Catalina Island and have your friends vote for you. Get the most votes and you could win this diamond engagement ring worth thousands of dollars.
Here’s Kyle with more info…
And here is the video where you need to comment if you’d like to win…
Last month Lana and I were filming a silly video short for Comedy Central with my buddy Kyle Cease and we started to discuss viral videos. If you aren’t familiar with Kyle, you should definitely check out his site and opt into his mailing list at www.kylecease.com
The chat we were having was about “Speed Of Implementation” and how you needed to be ready to film spoofs at a moments notice. You may see something breaking on the news, get a great idea, and need to be ready to start filming and editing right away while the story is still hot. Well, this is about the hottest thing on the internet right now and Kyle quickly got to work and came up with this spoof…
The story of the real Ted Williams with the golden tongue is pure amazing. Everyone has been captivated by this fellow. And rightfully so. His story is nothing short of incredible considering just days ago he was pan handling on the streets of Ohio. Today he’s receiving more work offers than he can possibly take on. Good for him.
Anyhow, back to the idea of Speed Of Implementation. If you’ve ever seen Eben Pagan’s “Get Altitude” seminar you may of seen him talking about this concept. He suggested that those who are quick to create content are much more likely to succeed then those who sit around and try to plan the perfect scheme. While he was giving this speech from the stage I began to make a blog and follow his instructions. Before the lunch break I had a new blog up, and had made around $500 or so (can’t really remember the exact number).
I mentioned it to him after lunch and he brought me up before the crowd to share my story. It was a pretty exciting experience. Soon after, dozens in the crowd started sharing their results of their quick implementation tests. Lots of people raked in some serious coin by quickly implementing the advice they were given.
So, I just wanted to congratulate Kyle on quickly getting this Ted Williams spoof up so quickly, and for having such a positive impact on my life in 2010. He’s one of the most amazing guys I’ve ever met and he’s doing some incredible videos right now about commitment (he just did 90 days straight on raw food while doing P90X, and filmed a documentary about it), and a bunch of stuff on battling stage fright.
I can’t wait to show you some of the things he’s been privately doing behind the scenes. I believe it will motivate a lot of people to do some stellar things in 2011.
So, if you haven’t already check out Kyle’s blog and sign up for his mailing list (don’t worry, he almost never mails and barely ever pitches anything. He’s a comedian, not a marketer). You’ll be glad you did.
And, maybe you could help us try to get this video going viral. Think we can hit 50,000 views in a couple days? I bet we can!
