this_land_cartoon.jpgBrothers Gregg and Evan Spiridellis of JibJab media have a mega-hit on their hands with their “This Land” cartoon animation that contains something to offend every Democrat and Republican and something to make each of them laugh too.
In my favorite scene, Bill Clinton has his arm around a scantily clad statue of liberty as he sings the video’s theme song. Hilary comes running up and slaps him in the face, to which he whines “What’d I do?”
When an item is a viral hit like this one, with hundreds of thousands downloading the cartoonm, server costs can get really out of hand really quickly. Their site says that their servers have been so overloaded that they’re asking people to pay $2.99 per download until they can set up mirror sites and expand their capacity to handle the spiral impact.
The brothers, who count Sony and a host of big companies among their clients, say they have never had a reaction as strong to any of their cartoons.
