Tired of hearing about Numa Numa Dance yet? Too bad... It was on the front page of the NY Times this Friday! Crazy, eh?
That IS crazy, yes... heh.
Speaking of Numa Numa Dance... I saw the VH1 Best Week Ever that featured Numa Numa... that was entertaining as well.
Also... Where the heck did you get the video of the class (looked more like a computer-equipped study hall to me, though) all dancing along with Numa Numa on a projected screen? (as in, do you know what state it was from, or anything else about its origin?)
And finally, last thing regarding Numa Numa--you should add this wonderful Numa Numa/River City Ransom crossover flash to the Numa Numa collection, even if it's not video-ful:
The good news about all this publicity is, it drives more eyeballs to everyone elses work as well. Yesterday was probably the highest traffic day in the history of Newgrounds! We had over 2.7 million Portal views and over 550,000 unique visitors (we usually have around 450,000 on a Saturday).
I'm not very surprised. The amount of signups over the weekend was greater than 1,000 per day. The most signups I've EVER witnessed per day (and I check the usercount in our profiles every day, so... yeah. #;-}>). Massively impressive.
Unfortunately, 50 or so accounts were created early this morning to do nothing but spam a virus .exe link all over the review system. ramagi got a few of the early ones, and I banned the final 39 accounts before they finally gave up and stopped for the time being. I think all this new publicity and Numa Numa related traffic is leading to an even more concerted effort by the clickgame + virus link spammers to get their stupid URLs out. It fills me with dismay. But anyway, I just hope that the other 950 of the 1000, aside from those stupid 50 accounts I just mentioned... are indeed going to be continuing NON-ABUSIVE users of Newgrounds.
