Breaking News: Super BlackBerry Mascot Guy Exposed... and He Knows How to Dance... and Get the Girl!!!

By Kevin Michaluk on 15 Jul 2008 12:41 am EDT

This is potentially the BIGGEST story to ever hit I can't believe this video has been up on Youtube for a few weeks now and nobody in the blogosphere has picked up on it. Bigger than the Bold, the Thunder and everything and anything else BB-related, I present to you BlackBerry Guy Rock N' Roll Star! :-)

The unmasking of Super BlackBerry Mascot happens in the final seconds of the vid (I think his name may be Justin), but true CrackBerry Addicts won't skip a second of the 6m43s of pure BlackBerry dance bliss - Mr. BlackBerry works the stage and the singer like a pro. And I'm pretty sure this is the first time the BlackBerry Mascot has ever been caught on tape with his err... display off.

A few weeks back we posted that the BlackBerry Mascot is on a bit of a North America tour this summer. Well, it seems he's getting spotted and the homemade vids are popping up on Youtube. If you're not into the live band in the vid above, after the jump you can check out a BlackBerry Curve and Pearl getting down to Soulja Boy's Crank That!

Man I want one of those mascot outfits to wear for Halloween this year (Adlen does too). Actually, screw Halloween. I'd bust it out regularly. RIM...if you're reading this, hook a blogger up!! :-)

The singer did stink, but what a great song anyway...Ms. Harry would've been a superduperstar in 2008...oh and I definitely watched all 6 minutes.

I think RIMs marketing team dropped the ball as far as designing the mascot suit is concerned. You see the suit goes past their shoulders restricting arm movement. It makes them look clumsy and that makes me think of a clumsy BlackBerry. Otherwise OK.

those were both great videos i did watch all 6 min as well and thought id be seeing more of the real face but nope. oh well. i love the pear & curve best and agree the singing was terrible.

Ha! I have more videos of the 8703 at the same event...And even making it across the finish line of the marathon.

If you want 'em to post, email me (Kevin or the CB Staff will be able to see the email address) and I will send them over.

Oh, and 80 degrees, high humidity and a BlackBerry Suit make for a very good workout.
