The Next Big Thing? Jul. 2nd, 2001 @ 05:44 PM Reply

Over the years, Newgrounds has always been timely with pointing out / making fun of viral trends on the internet. We were right there at the onset of Mahir, Whassup and All Your Base.

So now the question... Is this going to be the next big thing? Is everyone going to be emailing this link to all their friends?

Respond to this post with your thoughts, or just go ahead and create a Flash cartoon making fun of this poor kid. Either way, I can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Senior dingdong? What's up with this kid? He couldn't get a date, even if he were to go to a blind person's convention. I got his Senior Dingdong, right here buddy.

BUT - Supergreg is FAKE. Supergreg and several other "oddball characters" were made up by some PR firm who wanted to impress people by their ability to create a viral buzz. The problem is, they followed the Mahir formula exactly. Any dumbass knows that in order to be viral, it has to be DIFFERENT. I hate hollywood.

This kid is similar to Mahir, but different (and amusing enough) to get my attention. The plea for a girlfriend is also not an original concept, but coming from an 11 year old kid with a mullet, I get a big kick out of it.

Hehehehe... I owe you a BIG apology! I went to put the movie in "PROTECT" mode, and accidentally checked the box to delete it, instead! Funny how the "PROTECT" and "DELETE" boxes are right next to eachother on our admin page. :)

So anyway, feel free to re-upload it and I'll try to protect it, just for prosperity! It would help to make it a little better, though. ;)

Probably not, considering this kid's site has been around for a LONG time. He's probably 13 by now... I think we were passing around this link about a year ago in IRC. I thought everyone had seen it already...

Damn.. That guy's only 11 and lost a girlfriend? This world is just too f'ed up now adays. I'm 17 and haven't even been out on a date yet!! *grumbles* Kids have way too much free time on their hands now a days. I bet by next week, there's going to be another little kid saying something like this:

"Hi my name is Billyjoebob Humpernickle and I'm 9 years old. Some girl at school called me a redneck for talking too slow, having a big fat pet pig called Joebillybob and wearing coveralls in mid-June. Someone please e-mail me and tell me that I am not a reneck. Would someone please? Please? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaseeee?

Holy hell. That was the weirdest thing I've ever heard. I feel pretty bad for that kid, worse than I feel about the people who pretend to be Anime characters on Yahoo. But anyway, If someone hasnt already made a Flash movie about that kid, rest assured I will either make some kind of game or movie or whatever as soon as my shooter game is done.

well, even though michael is old, I don't think he caught the masses like that of all your base did the first time around. i've had it on my website for a while (complete with wav file) and I'm glad to see he has returned

This kid obviously gets his ass kicked a lot due to the top of his eyes being all black and blue (and purple). I'm making a movie on this kid, and it's gonna be better than all of my other pieces of crap.

That was scary, what kind of psycho path would put up such a demented site?

But I will, because I know all my dear dear BBS friends would miss me so much.
