Arty Party GIF Goes Viral.

I got up this morning and turned on my computer to a showering of messages on Twitter and Facebook. All referencing a GIF of me going crazy on the internet. My first question was, what's a GIF? I found out it stood for Graphics Interchange Format. Instead of getting all technical a GIFs can be used for small animations and low-resolution film clips. So, I went looking for the one with me on it. I found it and to my surprise it was of me dancing at the Columbus Bluejacket's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.  So instead of explaining it, I'll just share it with the link.
The amazing thing about this, since it's download about twenty four hours ago, there has been over 1.6 million views. That totally floors me. I could not believe it. It's very weird to think who's looking at it as we speak? Where are they looking at it, and what do they think about it? And do they like it? All these questions just leaves this man confused.

Oh, by the way, here is the full video of where that GIF came from. If you wanted to see it.

Fat Guy Stand Up

Here's a clip of me, Kevin Schroeder doing stand up comedy at the Funny Bone in Columbus Ohio a couple years back. Let me know what you think.

The Arty Party Goes Viral

As many of you might or might not know. I am a gigantic (no pun intended) Columbus Bluejacket's fan of the NHL. And several years ago I began ripping my shirt off and showing belly love to my favorite team. It has grown into something rather out of control. And a perfect example is this. A few weeks ago I danced at a game to Nellly's song, It's getting Hot in Here, because the Jacket's have been on a tear. A 12 game point streak, 10-2-4 in March. One of the big players in the Jacket's turn around this year is a Russian named Artem Anisimov, affectionately called Arty by his teammates and fans. In fact the Columbus Bluejacket's supporter group known as the Arch City Army termed the phrase, "It's an Arty Party." So it made sense for me to give Anisimov his well deserved belly love. This brings us back to the video. On that particular game day, 3/14/2013 against the Chicaco Blackhawks, at the designated time, I stood up and danced, as I always do, my ass off for the greatest fans & team in the league. After I sat down I drank my beer and enjoyed the rest of the game. Thinking nothing of it. A few days later the Columbus Bluejacket's put the video on their website. It started getting hits slowly at first, but then it got picked up by and the video hits began to raise faster until today. When I looked at the video earlier  I was floored, it was at 6,400 hits. No big deal right, I mean it's not like it's the cat playing piano video, but when I checked the video again in less than an hour it shot up to over 8,000 views. Is it possibly going viral? And if so, is that a good thing? I don't know, but I will leave it up to you to decide.
