YouTube duo Mike O’Connell and Ken Jeong get MTV film deal

September 17, 2007

News:  According to the BBC, MTV just signed faux rap stars Mike O’Connell and Ken Jeong to a film deal, which “will centre around the rise of a delusional rapper and his Asian foreign exchange student friend as they take on the world.”  The pair go by the name Million Dollar Strong.  

Analysis:  Wow.  To make a feature length movie from a YouTube music video, that’s pretty amazing.  Lonelygirl15 didn’t even do that.
