Remember Riz? He was that guy that started his career with a song called “Ping!!! Me baby!” and we think it was popular enough that it landed him a record deal. Having recently checked out his site, it doesn’t look like he’s doing songs about BlackBerry anymore but he does have a line of t-shirts that he’s selling with custom QR codes and his famous “PING!!!

You can’t really say Riz has sold out because he’s always sort of been a walking billboard for BlackBerry. His track “PING!!!

The latest video on his YouTube channel is a mock ad using the Mac vs PC style, but then jumps into a real ad promoting the BlackBerry Style. Anyways, the video is somewhere between cringing and laughing. Enjoy!
The artist Riz made a video called “PING!!! Me Baby” using just a BBM screen and the song, whether you like it or not, is guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
