The Spawn of Numa Numa

By Published on .

Remember back in those early days, when viral really meant something, something pure, something not tainted by the greasy, money-stained fingers of corporate America? Remember opening your email to find the Starwars kid or the Numa Numa guy entertaining you, not because THEY were out to make a buck, but because YOU found them slightly pathetic?

Well, get over it. Now, none other than Gary Brolsma his ownself--aka Mr. Numa Numa--has sold out, setting up NewNuma.com, launching a viral marketing contest with Jaeter Corp. and YouTube and, of course, creating a new video.

It doesn't have nearly the same voyeuristic appeal as the original, but we're not going to fault a guy for trying to make a buck or two off of his fleeting brush with fame.
