So 7 days ago I posted a video of a new sequence this year. "War Eagle" is the Auburn University fight song...and being an avid Auburn fan...I have wanted to do this for YEARS. This year was different for Auburn. Their football team did a complete 180 from the previous year and BEAT Alabama in a game that will go down forever in history as the best 1 second play there ever was. If your reading this years later... look at this video. Anyway, after hearing Rod Bramlett's call I knew not only did I need to put this into a sequence to do, I needed to hurry! The SEC Championship was coming up the next week and if Auburn lost, it would be a bitter sweet win the week before. I did...and this is what happened....
As I type this, this is week one. We are now at 259,000 hits. I have had every news organization from across the country, every TV station in Atlanta contact me and it has gone viral all over the country. I have been told it has played on TV stations from Vegas to New York. This is very wild and very surreal. Tonight, I had cars lined up to see "War Eagle". I had to talk out all of my songs but 2...just to keep traffic moving. I go tomorrow to go WXIA Channel 11 studios in Atlanta for a interview. I am sure it will just be a little interview, but will prove interesting just the same. So, the right place and the right time will get your video played a lot. We will see in the few days to come with the traffic...if it is worth it ;-)
Click on the September archive and then click on comments to see all of the 2009 display blogs. I am going to start blogging with a "Title" and also put the post into the blog so it can be archived by month. Should have done that to begin with. If you are new to this world of "Animated Displays", I suggest you not only read mine, but other blogs. They will help you learn NOT to make the same mistakes others have.
