Viral Marketing

I think it’s safe to say that the original Blair Witch Project site wins the honors of being the first big viral marketing of a major product.  The site was creepy and strange, but gave just enough information to get you wondering what the hell was going on.  Of course, that novel idea is almost considered an essential part of any marketing package nowadays.  (Though my favorite example will always be the Robot Mini-Cooper). 

The Ring 2 is gearing up for it’s cinematic assault on your senses (and your ability to look at a turned off television), and I’ve been seeing links to she-is-here.com all over the place.  It’s a great idea and I realize that the premise of the site hinges on a plot point of the sequel, but I’m still sad as I think this would have been so much more effective as part of the original film’s campaign.  Neat stuff, though.


I gotta admit.. I was really torn over this one. I love the animation but the song just drives me nuts (and not in a good way).  However it was brought to my attention that perhaps my musical tastes are a bit, uh….off.  So here goes for some crass crazy beats.  Rest assured, dancing ensues.

Not safe for work less you’re doing the headphone thing.

Exactly what you’d expect: Some guy gets drunk and doodles.

We should all do the same.


Since we’re at the start of the long slippery path to that pit of debauchary we call The Weekend, I think we should take a moment and discuss the topic that is going to be on everyone’s mind.  That’s right: Sex.

Men, are you tired of your lady feeling too excited?  Women, are your men less than filling, so to speak?  Have we found the product for you! (note: It’s sex talk. So maybe NSFW if you’re working for say Fred Phelps, The Bush Administration, or Cracker Barrel)

Crank your speakers and add a little burbon to the coffee, folks.  We’ll start off with this one because even though it’s Monday morning, at least you’re not this guy.



I just love when the world’s most insane pundit Anne Coulter gets caught talking out of her ass.

For the record, Canada never sent combatant troops to Vietnam.  They did however, send financial aid to the South Vietnamese.


Well, either it’s because we’ve somehow managed to create Skynet, or we just finally pissed off the right/wrong people, but either way we’ve been experiencing some serious performance problems and server hits these last few days.  So with that in mind, we’re going to be migrating to a new, more powerful server that will better enable us to serve you, our dearest pals, with the kind of innane crap you’ve come to expect from Transbuddha. What’s this mean for you?  Well for one it means that after about 4:00pm CST we won’t be updating with any new articles until Monday.  There will be some periods over the weekend when the site will be flat-out offline, but we’ll keep those to a minimum.  The upshot is that when it’s all said and done we’ll be bigger, better, faster, more.  And ain’t that the American Dream?

So please bear with us as we move out of our pull-ups and into the grown-up pants.

Transbuddha control to Planet Earth: It’s so on.

And so we’ve reached the end of our pal Terry Tate: Office Linebacker’s saga with this installment, Draft Day.

So long, Terry! May your hard-hitting comedic exploits never cease to amaze and amuse us!
