It has been a year since I originally uploaded the “Robot Party”. What a long strange trip it has been; who would have thought making a video in my bedroom would enable me to have this really cool Web site and some free T-Shirts.
In celebration of its accomplishments, a higher quality version “Robot Party 2.0″ has been created. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD IT, and have you a listen for old time’s sake.
Behold the trend set after “Robot Party” was initially blogged about on Geekologie.com
After the peak in the chart is when YouTube, unfairly BANNED “Robot Party” from their site for offending their vague “Community Guidlines”, and they wouldn’t tell me why. Most people have probably never tried to contact YouTube, but let me tell you something, it is impossible. It took me about an hour to find some sort of phone number in the first place:
Long story short all you get is an old lady on the message machine that says:
Thank you for calling YouTube leave a message and we’ll get back to you. Then it says the machine is full. Since the Google takeover, I think the old lady has been fired.
Thanks to sites like FunnyOrDie.com, CollegeHumor.com, and ebaumsworld.com and of course its companion video “The Konami Code,” the video could not be destroyed. “Robot Party” was able to stay online till the YouTube ban was lifted in late Oct. of 2009.
