Move over, Keyboard Cat. There's a new viral music video star in the animal kingdom, and he's coming through LOUD and clear. Introducing...Death Metal Rooster:
This cocky rocker is the latest Internet sensation, after Ewan Parry (of the British metal band Talanas) combined his original composition and some found footage of a cackling feathered fiend, then uploaded the result to YouTube earlier this month. Within hours, Parry's "Death Metal Rooster" clip had more views than any previous music video by Talanas, and as of this writing the clip has received nearly 2 million hits. Now there are even Death Metal Rooster T-shirts for sale at http://deathmetalrooster.viralprints.com/shop/product/420
, which is a sure sign that this is a viral hit.
And here's another sign...Death Metal Rooster is definitely connecting with the youth market:
