Our Choir in the Media

Thanks to all who have watched and shared our videos. We have gotten some incredible media attention in the past and have recently been recognized in a couple of special ways.

Our Still Alive videos have been receiving a lot of views lately. The sequel to Portal came out a few days ago. NPR’s “Morning Edition” had an interview with Jonathan Coulton and he mentioned our video. Then they played a portion of the audio! JoCo’s new ending song for Portal 2 is really great and Valve did an incredible job keeping the quirky humor and exciting puzzles going. The saying “Now you’re thinking with Portals” will now replace the antiquated “Now you’re cooking with gas.” The game is rated E 10+.

KnowYourMeme.com is the foremost authority on internet memes. Our original “Still Alive” video is now posted there in the “Still Alive” section along with only two other covers including one by Jonathan Coulton himself! Our “A Christmas Trololo” video was posted there earlier this year in the “Trololo: section.

A Christmas Trololo was on G4 TV’s Attack of the Show

The choir has been featured in the Escapist Magazine three times, G4’s “The Feed” twice and on the front page of Digg and Reddit. See the media links to the right.
