Pippa shakes up video land

Had enough of Pippa? How about that dress she wore at the royal wedding? No? Well, even if you've seen it all a thousand times, chances are you haven't seen her like this:

 

This particular video is already into viral-dom with more than 600,000 views. Between YouTube videos and Facebook, with its various Pippa sites like 'Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society,' the 27-year-old sister of the future Queen is now experiencing the kind of media feeding frenzy that Kate endured in the months before her wedding to Prince William.

Since uncovering a few old skeletons in the closet with some party and bikini pix, the interest has been heightened, no matter how many complaints the Middleton family files with the UK's Press Complaints Commission.

Best advice might be to go with flow. Eventually calmness will fall over her day.

Until then, like this video, she can expect her life to be all shook up.

The man behind the Pippa Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society

Twenty-one-year-old Management and Strategy student Mike Bandar should really be awarded an 'A' in his studies this year.

Why? Because Bandar is the man behind the increasingly popular Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society.

"I was watching the royal wedding with some friends," Bandar, a student at Aston University in Birmingham, England, wrote in an email to the Star. "As soon as Pippa stepped out at Westminster Abbey we all thought and said the same thing, 'She is stunning. We joked about how every man around the world watching the wedding would be thinking the exact thing which obviously turned out to be true."

The friends quickly set up the Facebook page while watching the wedding, but decided to take it down an hour later, thinking the moment had passed -- until they saw 100 people had liked it already.

"I then put up a few pictures, wrote a description and posted it on a few pages and it went mental from there! Thousands after thousands of likes, every time we refreshed there was hundred more fans," wrote Bandar.

With over 200,000 likes and nearly 7,000 unique visitors an hour, the Facebook page soon spawned the creation of Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation T-shirts and undies and an appreciation website.

Ranging from $18-25, so far more than 100 of the T-shirts have been sold and shipped around the world through the site, wrote Bandar, with the most popular being the standard "Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society" look. "I'd like to be in the Middleton of that" is also selling well, but only in men's sizes.

Although the website does include a section with some other celebrity behinds, Bandar says he does not have any plans to develop additional celebrity ass-praising pages.

So what has the reaction been to the site and Facebook page?

"The majority of feedback has been very positive. 99% of people take it as its intended, a bit of harmless fun and banter," wrote Bandar. "Some people think it is disrespectful which I can understand as I believe it is based on some of the more 'colourful' comments we have on the page."

Set to graduate this year, Bandar plans to continue to run a small portfolio of business he's set up over the last six years "which you will be pleased to know aren't Pippa, or Ass related," Bandar wrote.
