    It’s been ten years since Tay Zonday’s “Chocolate Rain” became an internet hit. BT.com spoke with Tay about the last decade and catching up with one of the first “viral” stars I remember:


    Today, 112 million views would likely translate into cash, but Tay decided early on to make his song available for free download.

    “I didn’t put it on iTunes,” he says, “I definitely regret that”.

    Wow 10 years, I still remember laughing at this with my friends haha time flies. Crazy how the concept of "memes" has changed in that time. I wonder how much money he would have made had he marketed it differently.
