    Hey Darnell!

    Yes I’m not a believer in “fame at any cost”, I’m sure Giovanna would love to take back that video. Who would want to be known forever for that?

    Prospective employers are known to look you up in Google and other search engines these days. Who wants to hire the “tampon girl”?

    I saw the “500,000″ likes post before. It looks like one of those things that happens once, but will never be repeated -despite people dissecting it and trying to replicate the formula. There’s a lot of that in the social media scene.

    Anyway great post man and thanks for the shout out!
