It looks like Jon Bon Jovi owes this guy a BIG thank you! Or at the very least a Have A Nice Day!
Four years ago, Jeremy Fry was at a Boston Celtics game when they started blasting Living On A Prayer throughout the TD Garden to get the fans going, and he suddenly noticed that he was on the big screen!
Well he made the most of his few minutes of fame by breaking out into an AH-mazing Bon Jovi impression that got the entire crowd involved!
Although the video is from 2009, it has found new life on the interwebs and has been viewed 11 million times and shared on Facebook 1.6 million times, and that's been a VERY good thing for Mr. Jovi!
Why, you ask? Because all of the extra attention has boosted Living On A Prayer to #25 on Billboard's Hot 100 list this week!
That's right, the song has seen nearly an 11% boost in sales since the video went viral, but most of the success has been due to streaming! Just in the U.S. last week, the song was listened to 5.1 million times on Billboard's Streaming Songs section of their website!
Wowzers! Look like these two make a pretty perfect team!
Ch-ch-check out the video that sparked the Bon Jovi revolution …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
