Manny Pacquiao Hijacks Myspace on May 6

Today, Fast Five. Tomorrow, Manny Pacquiao.

Social media site Myspace.com will be "hijacked" tomorrow by Manny Pacquiao, who will take over the front page of the site with his favorite media and some exclusive training videos.

Pacquiao's five favorite songs will be available, including Dan Hill's "Sometimes When We Touch" (shocking, I know) and the Black Eyed Peas song "Boom Boom Pow." There will also be a contest via Myspace's Twitter page for fans to win signed Pacquiao memorabilia.

So now that I've given you the information, a few questions:

  • Did you know Myspace still existed?
  • When's the last time you had an active Myspace account that wasn't for your crappy band?
  • Do you think this will have any impact on Saturday's pay-per-view?
  • Isn't this sort of a sad example of the often stereotyped but also often true assumption that while UFC -- which shows parts of their undercards live on the relevant Facebook -- is cutting edge, boxing is out of touch with popular culture? I'm not bashing boxing or even this idea, and I don't think this will do one ounce of harm to the promotion of this fight, but seriously, Myspace is deader than most people think boxing is.
