Background: American comedian Judson (Jud) Laipply closed his inspirational comedy shows with this dance number. Currently, the video is ranked #2 all time viewed on youtube with just over 109 million views.
What Has Happened Since? : Kind of what you expect i suppose…..
Jud has run the major media circuit and has been discussed all over the tubes. Looking into this guy’s back story is like reading about Youtube itself. Apparently, had it not been for Jud there would be no such thing as viral videos no youtube and the US would have fallen to Canada. The one real crazy thing about this is he doesnt seem to be making any huge amounts of money. His website has some shirts for sale and the FAQ page talks about him getting a dvd together. It has been almost 3 years now, if you cant cash in quick i guess you cant cash in. Fortunately, it looks like you can book him for performances for $11,000, but then again why pay $11k for one guy when you can get a whole comedy group for $15k?
Editor’s Notes: Jud – Time is up, you need to leak a sex tape or rob a bank while dancing to get back on top. Everyone else – Hire an impersonator. The video is low res so any white guy with thinning hair will do.
