Nope, this is not an entry in the What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? Contest... but it is a straight up contender for being named the Official Anthem of CrackBerry Nation!!

The song is called "CrackBerry Love" and it's a hardcore tribute to our beloved BlackBerry smartphone and its addictive powers. Be sure to check out the full press release after the jump for the details pertaining to this latest video by Caitlen Moe, aka C-Moe.

[ Re: Storm Contest. We've announced five BlackBerry Storm winners this week already, so we're going to take Friday off from posting a new one (need to get the "evidence" from our other winners prepped for the blogs)... use today as an opportunity to revisit our first round of winning entries! ]

Press Release

NEW "IT" GIRL ON THE SCENE CAITLIN MOE A.K.A C-MOE RELEASES HER VIRAL COMEDIC VIDEO "CRACKBERRY LOVE" WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM THE GATOR GIRLS

The Talented Pop Singer/Violinist Introduces Alter Ego C-Moe and The Gator Girls On

"Crackberry Love"

No one is safe from that controlling, evil little mobile device that consumes your entire being. It's constantly the focus of your attention while at work, at dinner with friends, even while on a date. Well one day pop singer/violinist, Caitlin Moe, becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of civility and manners of her friends decided it was time to do something about it. Thus alter ego C-Moe and "Crackberry Love" was born.

An instant internet hit, the concept of "Crackberry Love" originated during a late night writing session with Caitlin's producer Heather Holley and two best friends Morgan Johnson & Stevie Uribe. What started out as a parody on "Crackberry" addicts, ended up as a music video just a few weeks later.

Directed by Evan Ferrante, widely popular for his satirical funny videos, "Crackberry Love" pokes fun at America's obsessions with our mobile devices. In the beginning of the video, a cryptic voice warns of the many health dangers of the "Crackberry" addiction and then goes on to flash Hollywood bad girls Paris Hilton, Hillary Duff and Pamela Anderson who are caught red-handed with their "Crackberrys" in hand. With a fabulous cameo appearance by Heatherette designer Richie Rich, C-Moe and The Gator Girls are spotted with a life-sized device as their constant companion. At one point in the video, C-Moe goes to kiss her date and he turns into a "Crackberry"! Realizing this "Crackberry" addiction is getting out of control, C-Moe is caught by the paparazzi as she tries to dash into a "Crackberry" re-hab clinic unnoticed and immediately finds herself on the cover of Us Weekly. Check out www.myspace.com/crackberrylove to discover how the drama unfolds.....

Quickly becoming a widespread internet phenomenon, "Crackberry Love" will be available on iTunes November 1st, along with the EP of four songs from Caitlin Moe's highly anticipated debut album.

About Caitlin Moe

Talented pop singer/violinist, Caitlin Moe, is quickly becoming the next "It" girl to watch. When not spending long hours in the studio finishing up her debut album, Caitlin is seen performing all over the country. Most recently she opened for The Belvedere Rehearsals at the Bowery Hotel alongside the Brazilian Girls and performed at a packed show at the infamous Bitter End in New York City. In addition, Caitlin was selected as an understudy for the prestigious Trans-Siberian Orchestra, a rock orchestra which brings the best musicians together from across the music spectrum to create one dynamic sound. Be on the lookout for Caitlin's debut album, a classical mix of contemporary pop songs infused with her own unique style.

are you tone def??? that was some bullshit. who was the engineer that recorded that. they should lock his ass up first.

I tried twice to make it all the way through, just to see if they got nekkid. Both times I quickly decided that even if they did, the payoff wouldn't be worth the pain to my ears.

Very nice!

The best BB Anthem so far in my book.

Nice touch with converting the man into a BB and going straight for the track ball. Imagine what shorty would do with a touch screen Storm.

Almost forgot; this is a family show.

OMG that is SOOO AWFUL... SOOOOOOOO horrible!! LOLOL. i almost died laughing. what a joke. the video isnt bad but the actual song is... the words escape me. hahaha how embarassing

Listened to the first minute in agony, but I thought it might get better so I listened to the rest. Wrong. Wasted 4:37 of my life away.

... but that's half the fun. I thought it was hilarious! It was sort of the same kind of funny as watching The Office. I sometimes feel embarrassed for the characters involved, but that's part of what makes it funny. Awesome!

-SR-

i thought it was a storm winner... then i realized that that video cost way more than a storm.

it was funny*. no hate here.

*funny meaning mental laughs and/or amusement, not to be confused with "ha ha" funny.

..is okay...the rest of the song...O M G!! Sad thing is, this is one of thoes awful songs that get trapped in your head.

I think its cool that there is a crackberry song.

However, that song was horrible.
The sad part is the few minutes that she actually sang sound sounded decent.

I could do without the ghetto clothing as well.
The video could have been of her in the studio and that would have been ok.

Maybe I am getting old! - lol

Absolutely not, I can almost gaurantee that RIM had no part in this video. 1. It was horrible 2. The girls weren't anything special. Pretty lame if you ask me.

The video was funny because it appears to have been done as a spoof.

What was intended to be serious and came off *seriously* lame was that press release. That was the joke.

Just my dos centavos.

I don't think the video was made for a serious attempt to launch her career as so much just to have so fun. I don't think it would get her a music award but I bet it made all of you smile at least once. I thought it was hilarious and had a good beat. I have heard and seen alot worse. I'm just saying lighten up and have some fun with it. I looked her up on Rhapsody and she has another song out "Siren Song" it's not bad and the picture they have posted OMG she's a hottie. Don't forget to take time and smile. I mean how many of you have almost walked into something while you were texting.

About the smiles that is. In fact, I got the most laughter reading all these comments! Y'all are a hoot! I must say, ingenius young lady...

A ture CBA would of spotted over 69 BB in the video. As for the number of hot girls, I have no idea I was to distracted by all those BB.

:) yeah i definitely laughed like 'omg wtf / embarassing' hahaha. i DID get that office uncomfortable vibe from it ;) but thats half the fun... being so bad its almost unbearable

Like the Pudding Wrestling, this proves that hot chicks can get away with anything - even bad singing. Despite how awful that song was, I couldn't stop watching.

That was painful. I only watched it because of my dedication to Crackberry. Please tell me that whole thing about her album coming out is a joke. Please?????

OMG are you serious? If this is the new anthem, I'm switching to iphone. I didn't know youngin's liked blackberry's anymore now that the iphone is out.

Trying to be Britney Spears + Bad rapping + Blackberry = A girl making some noise with some lyrics about Blackberries.

RIM does not support this message!

Sorry, I bid you good day madam!

For a good Blackberry rap please search for "Hit Me On My Blackberry" on Youtube.

I know it was made out of fun... Good job and effort, but it's a one-timer for me, I couldn't watch or listen to it again.

I thought it was very funny ..... even the part (my thumbs are gettn numb)
what should happen since there are so many ppl sayn it was this and that then there should a contest of some sort for the best "crackberry" song/video

Why did this director waste his time on this ridiculous song and group of junior high girls?! My ears....they'll never be the same.

I know the star of this video personally. It cost over $50,000 to produce. I'll let you decide if it was money well-spent.......
