Nothing Like a Retweet: A Love Rap

It all began with a little refrain that I couldn’t get out of my head…”Nothin’ Like a Retweet.” With the help of the lyrical stylings of one Mr. Owen Borseth, this video blossomed. Well, to say “blossomed” insinuates some kind of smooth and natural process, when in fact it was like building a Slinky out of firewood. But, please, don’t be cruel. It’s easy to attack the rhythmless. We can’t move. So there was a lot of recording and re-recording, syncing and re-syncing, and trust me, I don’t think any of us will ever again doubt the talent of Lil’ Wayne.

But it’s here, and we’re happy, because now we’ve finally found a way to express the joy of your Retweets. AND there’s this little thing about Retweeting and winning an iPad 3.
Watch…and share (if only there were an easy way to do that…)

on line loving – in 140 or less some magic – noting like a retweet – so sweet – online attention makes lesser ppl nervous @treetrout1
