By DJ Mojo Jojo
Magic 89.9 DJs Tony Toni and Grace Lee led a night full of good fun and cheer as Crazy for Crocs, a new campaign in support of the beloved footwear brand, was recently launched with an exclusive party at the Hard Rock Café in Makati. The three-part campaign draws inspiration from the many DIY videos that have gone on to become big hits on the Internet. Fittingly, the launch party featured popular YouTube comedy duo Moymoy Palaboy as special guest performers.
Your Chance to Become an Online Superstar
Moymoy Palaboy has ushered the trend of becoming famous online with crazy homemade videos and this reality can be the same for aspiring comedians, performers and film buffs with the Crazy 4 Crocs video challenge! From broadcasting funny videos from their home computer, this funny pair has now become a household name pursuing their dream of performing, fame and fortune - And now, you can follow in their footsteps!
The first part of the promotion, a competition wherein participants will be performing funny Crocs-themed challenges issued by Magic 89.9’s/Killerbee’s Good Times radio show each week and each month. The crazy videos will then be showcased on the wacky nighttime radio show Boys Night Out with DJ’s Tony Toni, Slick Rick and Sam YG!

“I love how Crazy 4 Crocs involves YouTube videos, which we are all very familiar with and which we all love,” said Tony Toni. “There’s a ton of great prizes to be won, and the challenges themselves are really funny. I would join myself if I could! With Crazy for Crocs, anyone can become a star and win big.”

Katy Perry and Boys Like Girls come to Manila
While speaking of crazy videos, the pop princess that “Kissed a Girl,” who is known for her wacky fashion sense, and melodramatic (and sometimes controversial) music videos is coming to perform on Philippine shores! It’s Official! All Youth Channels, Inc. bagged the hippest concert of the year: Katy Perry Live in Manila on October 3, 2009 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. The concert will also feature a special performance from Boys Like Girls! The one-night-only concert is another event under the MTV Philippines Live Concert Series.
Katy Perry rose to fame in 2007 with her Internet hit "Ur So Gay" (a withering kiss-off to a metrosexual ex, a song that even the Queen of Pop, Madonna grew fond of) and later scored in 2008 her breakthrough single "I Kissed a Girl" (a provocative ode to the beauty of women that ruled radio over the summer of 2008). The song became an all-format hit shooting to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 where it stayed put for seven straight weeks and tied The Beatles' Capitol Records record for weeks at No. 1.
On the other hand, Boys Like Girls gained mainstream recognition when they released their self-titled debut album Boys Like Girls. They were the co-headliners with Good Charlotte for the Soundtrack of Your Summer Tour 2008 that toured across the U.S. The group's second studio album Love Drunk, is currently scheduled for a September 8, 2009 release date.
Check them out at the MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia which premieres this September 4, 2009 at 5pm on MTV Philippines. Catch show repeats on Friday, Sept 4 at 530pm; Sunday, Sept 6 at 8pm; Saturday, Sept 12 at 5pm; Wednesday, Sept 23 at 7pm; Thursday and October 1 at 2pm.
