I Hope This Gets To You

"I Hope This Gets To You" is a "digital love letter" by Walter C. May of The Daylights. He hopes it gets to her "organically—through tweets, links passed between friends, and blog posts."

I'm trying not to let it get to me.

While I'd like to believe this for what it is, I have just the slightest nagging feeling that this may be Walter trying to promote his band...
I could be entirely wrong, but if he is I think it's sort of a brilliant idea.

And yet if he were Australian and sent it to his coworkers ...

Meh. Back in the day Sting of English pop trio The Police stuffed his Message in a Bottle and set it adrift. That was real, honest-to-goodness hope. But what'd he get? A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore.

This The Daylights character will be lucky if he gets a tiny fraction of that in tweets.

What a surprise to see the Daylights on Metafilter. I loved this song when I was fourteen. But I don't think that this Walter C. May is in the band - it appears they just helped him out, as friends. It's a cute idea.

Man this rubs me entirely the wrong way. You hope it gets to her "organically"? Man you know whose twitter I bet she reads? YOURS.

He already knows 25 ways to contact her directly he just wants to be all clever and Pepsi Blue about it.

I blocked her... plus she never checks twitter.

Of course part of the point is to get lots of people to watch it. That doesn't make it insincere.
