Kim Dotcom—the Internet pioneer, founder of MegaUpload, and Cameron from "Modern Family"—pulled off quite possibly the weirdest and greatest product launch ever at his New Zealand mansion yesterday in announcing his new online hub, Mega. Before we go any further, keep in mind that the dude is on bail AND currently facing possible extradition to the United States for piracy charges related to the shutdown of Megaupload. Still, this is how he released what amounts to another file sharing service. From the Daily Mail:
Kim Dotcom spoke from a giant stage at Dotcom Mansion in Coatsville Auckland, as he unveiled new site Mega, which the millionaire said comply with the law, rendering it safe from being taken down.
Dotcom then compared last year's raid to the iceberg which caused the Titanic disaster, saying without it 'we wouldn't have a great Titanic movie which makes me cry every time I see it.'
'Mega is going to be huge, and nothing will stop Mega!,' Dotcom shouted seconds before a helicopter roared overhead and faux police agents rappelled down the side of his mansion and female military guards in mini-skirts surrounded him on stage.
The controversial millionaire then ordered to 'stop this madness' before breaking out into a dance alongside the 'guards'.
Is there video? Oh yeah. And it may be the funniest one you see all day, especially if you also imagine the German Dotcom as a grown-up Augustus Gloop, who traded in his chocolate vices for dancing women in short skirts. (Just me?)
