If you’re new to this idol business, here’s a short explanation: They were going to debut when they got to 500 Twitter followers, but now they’re going to wait until they get to 1,000. BiSH did that, basically. It’s manipulative and (for purposes of this exercise) annoying, but it is what it is.
I really hope that telling management about this project didn’t inspire the delay.
So let’s keep going for now, and maybe we’ll still get an outcome worth talking about. We can reassess after.
UPDATE: At least here’s some visual confirmation that they’re two real human beings do some promo work! via Idol 2.0
