Branson Sports Club strikes again. Larry Dapprich was spotted during the last city council meeting gathering photographic inventory to create his newest viral video attack against the city of Branson. Though the City of Branson hasn't taken any action against the sports club they haven't acknowledged lack of ownership to the trademark "Branson" nor have they issued an apology to the sports club for their initial letter. As I've said before, you don't want to meet a soccer mom in a dark political alley. T
hough local media outlets see the issue as dead (all have run the story) behavior on behalf of one regional newspaper, Springfield News-Leader, has only added fuel to the fire as the Sports Club continues to spread its media reach through the Internet.
The video posted in "Video Parody of Branson" included the "Get a Clue-Branson" video. The video (as you can see) features Branson's legal council in proper Blue's Clue attire and manner struggling and finally issuing an apology. The video has obtained over 60,400 views to date.
The persistent efforts of the Branson Sports Club have kept the issue alive with Co-owner Pam taking her allocated 15 minutes of fame at every meeting to let city council know that she's both displeased and why.
The Internet is a powerful medium and the Sports Club has harnessed this power to effectively deliver attacks against the current administration and creating an awareness of their grievances long after administration offenses were delivered.
The cease and desist letter, according to the Old Seagull may have been an attempt to get the Sports Club to change their name to solidify a Branson Sports authority of their own. The City of Branson has openly defended their position saying ownership of the name is a necessity to protect their image; unfortunately, this image is being tarnished by the initial target rather effectively.
The video has reached 75,000+ and is declining rapidly. It will most likely be elimated from the charts before the weeks end.
The video was pumped back up and has hit 95,000 views
