MTV CHALLENGES HUMAN GIANT TO GET A MILLION HITS IN 24 HOURS DURING LIVE TELETHON TO SCORE A 2ND SEASON

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Human Giant wants you to watch the best show that you’re not watching. MTV is giving Human Giant 24 hours to earn a second season – and they need to get a million hits on their site to do it. The trick is, the execs are turning over MTV and MTV2 to the cast – so they get to do whatever they want, on-air, for an entire day. It’s going to be the most kickass telethon ever …. without all the sick kids.

Human Giant needs a million hits on HumanGiant.mtv.com between 12noon ET/ 9am PT on Friday, May 18th and 12noonET /9am PT on Saturday, May 19th – ending with the Human Giant season finale at 11:30am ET/8:30am PT. To show their support, fans can text, email, send photos, watch videos and pretty much do anything Human Giant demands on HumanGiant.mtv.com. So get off your asses and make your voices heard!

Human Giant puts it like this - "MTV challenged us and said play the shows you want, book the bands you love and don't stop for 24 hours...We said Yes. So expect the unexpected (though now it’s no longer unexpected). And would it be a telethon without celebrity friends dropping by? Throughout the 24 hours, guests will show up to keep us company and, in a few instances, sing a few songs like Mastodon, Ted Leo, Tapes 'n Tapes, Albert Hammond, Jr., Rakim with DJ Kid Kapri, Tegan & Sara, The National and Morningwood. Other folks stopping by are Will Arnett and Michael Cera of Arrested Development, Eugene Mirman, Zach Galifianakis, the Daily Show's Rob Riggle, Andy Blitz, Jon Glaser, Slovin and Allen, and Jon Benjamin."

As with all electioneering, there’s way for the enterprising few to cheat the system - texting support counts! But fans can also show up in Times Square to deliver a pizza counting for 80 hits, or carving Paul Scheer’s face into Mount Rushmore for the entire million hits (though Rob Huebel’s face is only worth 750K). MTV cannot be held liable for any defamation to national landmarks.

So join the fight to keep Human Giant on the air! Or you’ll have only yourself to blame for the consequences.
