Porcupine Picks Super Bowl Winner, Becomes Viral Hit
[ Social Media]

Meet Teddy Bear. He’s a porcupine that’s destined for viral-stardom, especially if his Super Bowl winner pick turns out to be correct. Actually, Teddy was something of a hit before he got into the sports prognostication business, but thanks to his Super Bowl pick, Teddy is appearing on The Today Show and showing up in various blogs and web publications like ours.

Ah, the power of cute animals, corn on the cob and pairing these two with a popular sports event. It’s clearly undeniable. For those of you wondering which team Teddy picked, see for yourself:


Is it just me, or are the Giants the “sexy” pick for the Super Bowl? Maybe I’m just hearing things because according to ESPN’s SportsNation poll, America is split down the middle when it comes to picking, as you can clearly see:

ESPN Poll

I don’t recall seeing such a hotly contested subject being split down the middle like that, especially in relation to ESPN’s crowd. For my money, a sports discussion in just about any of ESPN’s comments sections is about as contentious as a meeting between SOPA supports and SOPA rejectors. Because of that, the 50/50 split is kind of weird.

As you can see from Teddy’s video, he has no such qualms about his pick. He slams the jar with the New England Patriots helmet to the side, in favor of the jar with the New York Giants helmet on it. From there, Teddy did what most animals are wont to do when presented with food — he devoured the corn — almost confirming his commitment to his Giants pick.

Teddy, as indicated, is already a viral hit. Thanks to his Super Bowl pick, Teddy no seems like he’s on cusp of Internet superstardom. His Twitter account is up to date with all of his appearances:

There’s nothing wrong with a little self-promotion, and with that in mind, we’ll help out Teddy’s viral cause by showing his appearance on NBC’s Today Show, courtesy of Hulu:


In true Hulu nature, there’s really no telling how long that video will be live, so get it while it’s hot. As for Teddy’s pick — the New York Giants — do you agree? Or are you a Patriots fan who’s been dying for a shot at revenge?
