Weathercaster Wins Facebook Fans with Music Video

Taking a page from KUTV’s social media playbook, the morning team at KBAK-KBFX in Bakersfield, CA launched their own “Facebook Faceoff,” a competition to see who can gain the most fans on the ubiquitous social networking portal.

The clear winner has turned out to be weathercaster Aaron Perlman, who whipped out his acoustic guitar and made a music video (above).

As Lost Remote points out, though, Perlman was originally asking viewers to be his friend and not his fan so he quickly hit Facebook’s 5,000 person limit on friends. Perlman has since launched a fan page.
