Hot Pose is Latest Internet Craze
Boston, MA – November 14, 2011 – When it comes to Internet phenomena, there is always something new trending. And with people in over 46 countries around the world uniting with a simple pose – Tebowing – a new craze has emerged. Inspired by the Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, Tebowing is a gesture of bending down on a knee and praying, regardless of what else is going on around you. Notable celebrities seen Tebowing include NBA Superstar Dwight Howard, former NFL players Deion Sanders and Teddy Bruschi, MLB Stars Prince Fielder and Adam Jones, Glee Star Dianna Agron, and more.
After paying tribute to the quarterback by taking pictures of himself with friends in Tim Tebow’s prayer position after a Broncos win, Jared Kleinstein, a 24-year-old Denver native, dubbed the pose “Tebowing” and launched http://tebowing.com/.
Since the site’s creation just three weeks ago, Tebowing.com has over 8 million page views and over 1.1 million unique visitors. More than 800 pictures have been posted to the site from over 9,000 submissions – not including the pictures that have independently been shared on Twitter and Facebook.
“It’s been an exciting few weeks and we are proud to have created such an exciting movement; we are incredibly happy and are looking forward to seeing where it goes from here,” said Jared Kleinstein, creator and CEO of Tebowing.com
