Oh Snap, Son! was brought about by four young people who came together with a vision. A vision they believed would transcend social divisions and pop culture mediocrity. A vision with a voice that spoke to people across race, nation, and generation.
That vision was laziness.
See, each of us wanted to build our own little soap box on the Internet, but none of us were willing to put in the time and consistency needed to build an audience when we could be watching cat videos on YouTube. Whenever any of us tried to, we realized that as brilliant and beautiful and witty as we are, we didn’t have whatever it took to get you readers to stop watching cat videos on YouTube. So we did the math: four awesome people posting on one blog would require only 1/4th of the time. And thus the blog was born.
We hope you’ll come for the insight, stay for the humor, and maybe watch a few of the cat videos in the meantime.
Oh Snap, Son!
