Someone Made a Doge Video to Marty Robbins’ ‘El Paso’
The sequel we didn't deserve, but the sequel we needed.
That's what one person over on YouTube said about this video. And yes, I realize it's spelled "doge". If you aren't familiar with Internet stuff, it's a thing. It's a big enough Internet thing that there is a currency called "Dogecoin" which is actually currently in the news. If you aren't aware of what's going on in Wall Street, here's a quick rundown.
A bunch of day traders jacked the price of Gamestop stock through the roof, causing a bunch of hedge fund managers to lose a TON of money. It's gotten so bad that apps like Robin Hood have locked people out of purchasing stocks like AMC Theaters and Nokia. Because you know, the regular person figured out the system so they have to change the rules. So what does this have to do with Dogecoin?
The value of Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency originally invented as a joke, surged today as Reddit traders target it in an attempt to mirror the mindblowing share rises in heavily shorted companies like GameStop, BlockBuster, and AMC.
In the past 24 hours, the value of Dogecoin has jumped 56% and has seen an increase of 1,421% in trading volume. If you're wondering how to pronounce "doge", there's a couple different options. When the Internet is polled about how to say it, two pronunciations pop up. It can be dohj, with a soft 'g' sound or you pronounce it just as it is spelled with a hard 'g', dohg.
Why did I just spend all this time explaining that to you when you clicked this link to watch a video with dogs in it? Because I have 250 words to fill and what the Hell am I going to tell you about Marty Robbins' El Paso that you don't know?
