Internet Stars are Viral goes Primetime

Well folks, we apologize for our disappearance but after 5 long months of negotiations, we are finally able to fill you in. It is no secret that our viral video compilation has been quite popular with over 1 million views to date and featured on FOX News, CNN headline news as well as National Public Radio (NPR) but it was truly an unexpected honor when the Cakke Team was approached by CBS programming.

Unfortunately we can not give you all the details but we can say that Les Moonves and his CBS team have been very generous with their offer to buy the rights to the song. CBS will be adding a weekly, user submitted viral video show to their fall line up and they have chosen our song “The Internet Stars are Viral” as the theme song for the show.

The Power Of The Stache

Who couldn’t use a universal disguise at the tip of their finger from time to time? Imagine you are on line at Whole Foods and the annoying guy from apartment 3, who refuses to have a conversation shorter than 30 minutes comes strolling in. You just want to pay for your tasty roast beef panini and be on your way but the annoying guy does a double take in your direction and the cashier asks you to swipe your card again. This is the perfect situation for the power of the stache. You punch in your pin number for the second time with one hand, quickly bringing a tattooed finger on the other hand to your lip revealing a stylized moustache and situation is averted with the FINGERSTACHE.

The exact origin of this finger moustache tattoo, or fingerstache as it is more commonly refered to, is unknown. There is even some discrepancy in the recent revival of this micro trend. There is a tattoo artist in Columbus, Ohio and another in Federal Hill, Rhode Island who both claim responsibility for jumpstarting the fingerstache to the internet phenomenon it has become today. Origins aside, there are reports of as many as 15 people recieving fingerstache tattoos at a single tattoo shop in one day.

The term “fingerstache” returns 25,400 google search results and even has a home on its very own wikipedia page. Most of the TLD’s are still available for fingerstache with the exception of “.com”. The recent popularity of the fingerstache has sparked a new social networking community of people dedicated to the faux facial hair at . Although we doubt will be offered facebook money anytime soon, we do expect the mempership numbers to rise considerably from its current enrollment of 35. It’s easy to see how a concept with this kind of humor mixed with a pinch of the absurd could spark an instant internet meme. Because of the location on the finger of these fingestache tattoos, they tend to not have a very long lifespan which is hopefully not a sign of the very near future for this loveable micro trend.
