Alligator Watermelon Carving Goes Viral?

What constitutes going “viral” on the web exactly?  I don’t know, but I’ve found websites with 500,000 views, Trend Hunting sites including our images, Facebook pages with 15,000 plus “likes” 42 Google web pages (at least, and growing) featuring Clive’s recent Alligator Watermelon Carving (or as some prefer, Crocodile Watermelon Carving).  With online newspapers using this image, the Food Network about to publish a blog, Wenn News Agency, Rock 101, Lite FM, VR-Zone on Facebook, the list goes on and on …

It is a great carving, but then Clive has loads of fantastic, extreme watermelon and pumpkin carvings to be proud of.  Click on the alligator picture below to see even more!

Clive also was featured on the Weather Network several times on October 30th and 31st.   Oga Nwobosi of the Weather Network had called us and send Camera man, Caaleb Trott to our house to film the segment.

Clive carves a “Demon Pumpkin” on October 16th. Love the horns and ears!  On the 18th, Dickson Tong, a reporter from the Ming Pao Daily News interviewed Clive – so you’ll see an article and some of his carvings in their paper on October 21st.  It will be a full page spread.

City TV (Breakfast Television) is arriving next week to film Clive in action!  You’ll see from our website that he’s already been bashing out a few pumpkins this season!  Here’s one that I personally love, “The Executioner” carved from about a 50lb Atlantic Giant Pumpkin.  Awesome.

Seems like Clive’s watermelons really are a huge hit!  He just signed on with Caters News Agency in the UK June 27th and already his carvings featured in the many online papers and magazines listed below (at least that I could find, might be more).  Some were actually published in print (i.e. Metro News UK).

And that’s not even counting the few 100 sites that have grabbed a photo from our site and linked his photos. Facebook and Twitter sites?  How many? Who knows?

I think that the people at Incredible things, Cheezburger, Go Carving and Deviant Art  and Nerdcore also deserve a little recognition and praise for recognizing his carvings and spreading the word! And you’ll even find lots of Clive’s pics on Pinterest!
