The other day I checked my inbox for my youtube account, which I rarely use. I found I had a message from a reporter at the Asheville Citizen-Times. It was regarding the “Appalachian is HOT HOT HOT” video which I uploaded onto youtube a couple years back. I knew it had a great deal of hits but I had no idea I was the first one to put it on the site. Unbeknownst to me, the video I uploaded had been featured on VH1, NPR, and was the debate at some Appalachian State faculty meetings. I called the reporter from London and we did an interview from which she based some of her article.
I originally posted the video I downloaded from the school’s website before we played them in the National Semi-Finals in 2005. I hoped it would boost our morale going into the game and lower their school spirit and reputation. I’m not sure which is worse for Appalachian State – this video or the fact that Miss Teen South Carolina now attends there.
Here is the link to the article:
