"Jedi Baseball" Hits YouTube Homepage
At around 3:00 pm on Thursday, April 3, 2008, Goldroom Pictures' production of "Jedi Baseball" hit the YouTube homepage front and center for the entire world to see. Starting out the day at somewhere around 30,000 views prior to being featured, that number quickly climbed to 167,000 view by the evening and accumulated over 2500+ comments and responses. By this morning the view count was quickly approaching half a million viewers.
It collected a number of "honors" yesterday, among them the distinction as the "#1 Featured" video on the site. Email and comments flooded in, many viewers requesting a sequel for "Jedi Baseball" and for the "Office Wars" film that came into being as a result of the "Jedi Baseball" short, which served as an effects test for the "Office Wars" project.
The film was later listed in the "Promoted Video" line up on the homepage, where it has continued to attract viewers. Thanks everyone for watching!
