PRLog - March 14, 2012 - BOGOTA, N.J. -- The animated singing and dancing internet star known as Gummibär has come a long way since his humble beginnings with a 30 second clip on YouTube in 2006. Today the character has dozens of music videos, which attract millions of views every day from fans around the world. To satisfy global demand, the Gummibär songs and videos have been released in as many as 24 different languages, and still counting. The launch of the new Spanish language website, http://www.ositogominola.mx, is yet another way for Gummybear International to meet global demand, by connecting to Gummibär’s growing fan base in Central and South America.
This launch marks the first time Gummybear International has attempted to brand the character for a specific region of the globe with a website. “We were seeing the popularity of Gummibär growing rapidly in places like Mexico and South America,” says Jürgen Korduletsch, President of Gummybear International, “so we wanted to create a website that could better connect with that growing fan base.”
Gummibär, or as he’s nicknamed in Latin America, Osito Gominola, already has several videos and songs that have been released in Spanish. Now, Spanish speaking fans have their very own website, complete with a bright, warm and colorful design. The site features all of Gummibär’s Spanish videos and songs, which fans can stream for free. Fans can also find links to iTunes and Amazon to purchase music, links to the official Gummibär social profiles on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Myspace and a guestbook to leave comments.
Of course fans can still navigate to Gummibär’s flagship website, http://www.gummibar.net, to get full access to all merchandise in the webstore, the official newsletter, fan videos and more.
