When you create a new product, you never know how people will react. Will they like it? Love it? Hate it? Sing a song about it? This is a story about that last kind of reaction.
It all started a few weeks with some simple questions about our Flipmits from a potential customer on instragram. He saw our Facebook ads and had questions. We answered his questions, and I think we are done. Then a new note appears.
“I am a musician and suddenly got an idea of a theme song for this in a 1980s style rock vibe, I’ll record this idea. One sec”
Shortly thereafter, an audio file appears with this stranger humming a song. “Cute” I think. I thank him for the idea and the humming and assume we are done. "That was fun!" I think.
A few hours later, another audio file appears, and boom, a fully recorded Flipmits theme song arrives. And it’s awesome!
THE FLIPMITS THEME SONG
"Can we use this?" I ask.
"Of course" he says. “Truly, it just popped in my head and I was suddenly driven to make this!”.
That's kind of like the story of Flipmits, I think to myself. So who is this Flipmits superfan, and how did he make a theme song so fast?
Well, it turns out, his name is Matt Griffo, and he is a well-respected musician and comedian from Chicago who mixes those skills quite often, performing around the world.
Then Matt sends me another message. “I also recorded a video of me putting this song together I need to edit and upload to my YouTube channel!”
Whaaaat!? Watch for yourself.
