Actual Reasons Why People Read This Blog

It was probably not Zac Efron’s statuesque naked body that got us 4000 new viewers, it was probably not the British attempt to turn our gulf into a large fish n’ chips fryer, and it was definitely not Alex’s writing skill.  I know it wasn’t the key words or the content so I’ve boiled it down to 5 possible solutions.

1.  Illiteracy

2. Misclicks from “those peep holes blog”

3. We’re all in a shared dream and our projections clicked on the page

4. Reading Alex’s post was better than actually seeing the movie Charlie St. Cloud

5.  Let’s go with illiteracy again

Nude Celeb Zac Efron Tits on Oil Spill “How the F*ck” follow up

Unfortunately, our hypotheses as to why we got so many hits in the past few days is unfounded. You can rest assured that our exponential outburst of views was not a case repeated incidental happen upons. Our conclusion derives from an experiment aforementioned in this blogpost’s predecessor that we deliberately tagged misleading labels to  (i.e., “tits,’ oil spill,’ etc.”)

Only after typing in “nude celeb zac efron tits on oil spill” in to Google did our post finally appear, albeit in the sixth slot (behind Zac Efron poses with nude babe, teenage girls cry. and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Transforms Into Nude Lady – MashCeleb). Accordingly, we believe the average internet search engine user types a maximum of two words per search, and, also, the probability of specifically hunting for “nude celeb zac efron tits on oil spill” falls just on the unbelievable side of farfetched.

Conclusion: http://www.Videogum.com uploading our (Alex Nichols) piece is the major contributor to our site’s recent success.

How the F*ck did we get so many views?

As our hit count tidal wave recedes back to the water, we ask ourselves how the fuck did 4,000 plus people visit our website in the past two days? To put it in perspective, our most recent spike came on  April 25 when we cashed in a whopping 46 internet-goers. I decide to do research.

On July 25 we posted a piece entitled “Dare You Take a Leap of Faith?” A supple, yet refined critique of a soon-to-be cinematic treasure “Charlie St. Cloud” starring Zack Efron. I know and we know when Mr. Efrom is a hand chiseled, Robert Duvall/ELVIS hybrid, one of a kind talent, but do people google his name that many times a day? A record day like yesterday, could it be possible that a small percentage of that very crowd accidently stumbled on our relatively miniscule blog post while searching for anything and everything Zack Effron?  My hypothesis forms….

Either way you look at it, it is definitely plausible. Though, like true scientists, we will test my hypothesis. In doing so, we will tag this post with misleading labels and one-word descriptions such as: “Oil spill, ‘Tits,’ ‘Hurricane,’ ‘Nude Celebs,’ and, of course, ‘Efron,’ ‘Zac,’ ‘Charlie St. Cloud.” We will see…

There will be a follow-up of statistically charged analysis of this proposed data shortly.

Welcome, Internet!

Our Charlie St. Cloud Inception theory has gotten a little bit of buzz, and as a result we’ve had a few new readers here at the blog. And by “a few,” I mean “more than twice as many readers as the entire rest of the blog’s existence combined.”

Those People mostly does live improv comedy shows in the Lawrence/Kansas City area. In September, we’re performing at the Kansas City Improv Festival alongside acts like Der Monkenpickel (featuring SNL’s Jason Sudeikis). Our blog is pretty sparse, but we plan on posting some fun stuff in the near future, and we’d like you to stick around.  So we encourage you to subscribe to our blog using the “You Want Mail? You’ve Got Mail” box over on the right.

In the meantime, why not retweet or buzzfeedify the Inception theory and/or read an earlier post?

We hope to see you again soon!

“Dare you take a leap of faith?”


The shores of your own subconscious (or Quincy, MA).

Last night, I went to the movie theater to once again experience one of the most satisfying, mind-blowing cinematic adventures of all time. It’s the film event that has everybody buzzing, the existential phenomenon that has us questioning the very concept of reality.

I’m talking, of course, about the trailer for Charlie St. Cloud.
