Marketing and Rap seems to get along very well…

Hubspot just released a short music video called “Baby Got Leads“about inbound marketing. Hilarious! That reminds me the 2 videos made by VerticalRespond called “Appex Baby” and “Nuthin’ But an App Thang“.

But the funny thing is that after almost 2 years, VerticalRespond video were viewed 5000 and 8 000 time. and after only 2 days, Hubspot was view about 11 000 times. Could Twitter be responsible for spreading the word faster then anything before?
