Once released to the Internet a cult following immediately formed around this musical cry for help. Jared started popping up on hard drives across the country. Letters poured in, some even going as far as proposing marriage, sight unseen, to him. Wired called asking for Jared to play their Christmas party, and a small article appeared in the May issue. Jared greets you in the 'about' box in Macromedia's Director 6.0. Freeverse now started selling JARED CD's (audio), featuring his Bilbo Baggins song, directly their website..
And now Jared has crossed over to TV.
Licensed to the clothier, The Boston Trading Company for their ad campaigns in New York, Miami, and Tokyo, Jared will sing his little song to millions of viewers. And remember, It all started from this stupid little program.
Excuse me, but WHERE'S THE 'OOZE' COMMERCIAL? Where are the hot babes asking me to marry them? And the software magnates throwing themselves at my mercy? I don't mean to sound bitter, but we've been putting stupid crap on the Internet for years, and I haven't seen dime one!
I have an idea for you 'Admen': There's a baby, right. It's crying. A fork flies in from offscreen jamming it in the head sending a stream of blood coursing down it's face. The baby smiles quietly. Text fades in: "Better to have a fork in your head, than use MCI."
Maybe it would just be better if you download this program.
