Instead of riding a wave of success and publicity that this never before heard of label has ever experienced (Zeb’s video has been on all the gay and pop culture blogs this week, including this one where it premiered on Monday), Night Dance posted the following in the “info” section accompanying the horrible, awful, cannot unsee, made-me-deaf/blind, yougottabefuckinkiddingme, worst video of all time ever:
Zeb and Pearly’s sizzling new version of the classic Diana Ross hit “Love Hangover” has gained even more attention and press coverage and gossip on the gay network since it was leaked on The Sword website on the 16th January without our knowledge.
Without our knowledge? The video did debut here, but it was not “leaked.” You’re a record company, but you don’t understand that if you don’t want your video to be seen, you shouldn’t put it on the internet? OK. After receiving a press release from Zeb’s manager that stated he had recorded a song called “Love Hangover,” I Googled the words “Zeb Atlas” and “Love Hangover,” and there it was, complete with an embed code! If it was leaked, it leaked on another website; I simply copied and pasted.
The intention of this project (and Zeb will agree with this) is not to proclaim to the world that he is a singer…
You’re shitting me.
…but to create a product that fans will enjoy visually as well as musically by ensuring that Zeb is aiming to be nothing but himself. So, you queens out there, please refrain from making any bitchy comments and just sit back, chill and enjoy Zeb and if you want to see more future dance productions with Zeb, please support us by spending just 99p on downloading the track from iTunes where the single is expected to be released in February ’11.
Don’t make fun of our video and please give us money. Ha ha, no. Why not let the video be the nightmare that it is and enjoy the attention? People love things that are so bad they end up being good, and “Love Hangover” is a perfect example of this. I’ve watched it at least 20 times this week because I hate it and it’s thoroughly entertaining. So stop with all the disclaimers and stop telling people how to react to something, please. Are you a record company or a soccer mom?
Being defensive about something (Leave Zeb alone! He knows he’s not a singer!) that even you know is objectively terrible is not the way to market your product! Thank goodness everyone else is doing the job for you.
Here’s the amazing trainwreck one more time:
