8 Hour Challenge

Many of you have probably seen this:

But it's 2 Canadian kids who decided to create a top 40 challenging hit in under 8 hours, way less than that.

If you actually check them out, the rapping guy actually has some not bad stuff on his own channel that's way more indie rap (Atmosphere style anyone):

yeah i saw the video on wimp.com a few weeks ago. there was also an article in the paper today so i guess they're getting some decent publicity.
brilliant idea, and it really shows what a joke pop music is.

Man, I gotta say, I didn't expect a whole lot, but if that stuff couldn't make Top 40, it would be damn close. It can go viral through Youtube and top the charts just like Bieber. :p

If they didn't dick off and go for burgers and such, and fine tuned it a little, it would be even better. Imagine if they had a whole week, or more. Could turn out a whole album! :p

Doesn't Bieber have like 3 songs? Is that just maybe 12 hours of work for these guys? haha.

Either way they've been contacted by a bunch of people I'm sure (Gene Simmonds and more). Now it will be interesting to see what their next steps are. They've said they're not going to be making pop music because it doesn't interest them. However, maybe they'll make some cash with that and then try to progress with their real music acts.
