Shaq-Kobe. It’s the feud that won’t go away. There’s even a Wikipedia page devoted to it. By now everyone knows about Shaq’s freestyle rap last week. Kobe’s done the smart thing – he can’t fan the flames if he doesn’t discuss it. But you can by downloading Shaq’s rap as a ringtone!
FunMobility has the original rap as a free download and created a premium ringtone mashup inspired by the original Shaq rap, as well as a JibJab-style animation with the mashup soundtrack.I see how FunMobility, the ringtone’s distributor would want to try and capitalize on this. But as a consumer, I’m confused. Sure, it’s free, but you’d have to really hate Kobe pretty badly to download this. For imagine yourself at the mall, the workplace, or at someone’s house when all of a sudden the phrase “tell me how my ass tastes” blares out of your phone. Is there any situation where that wouldn’t be embarrassing? Yeah...hard to think of too many.
So if you download this ringtone, turn your phone on silent during your next important event, will you?
