'Boinking John Malkovich' sets new Monday traffic record

LOS ANGELES, May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daily Boink!, LLC announced today that its April 24 boink!, ``Boinking John Malkovich,'' set a new Monday traffic record on the firm's flagship Web site, The Daily Boink! ( ).

The record-setting boink!, submitted by Caleb-Malachy Werner of Toronto, Canada, logged 50 pageviews in its first day of posting. ``Boinking John Malkovich'' features a medium-sized cutout of John Malkovich's head getting boinked by a smaller John Malkovich head, echoing the surreal hilarity of the sequence in ``Being John Malkovich'' in which John Malkovich enters his own portal.

The site's all-time highest traffic-getter is still ``Mexiboink!'', which was posted Friday, April 14, and has received 278 pageviews thus far. ``Mexiboink!'' features an iconic Mexican cartoon character wandering in the desert and receiving a boink on the head from a potted cactus.

``We were really concerned that 'Boinking John Malkovich' wouldn't do well because of the time that has elapsed since the movie's release,'' said Elsa Signore, VP Editorial of The Daily Boink! ``I guess we were wrong. Now we're re-orienting the site's content plan to include more topical boinks!''

As part of the site's new direction, Signore and her staff posted ``Boinking Elian Gonzalez'' on April 25. ``We really think this approach will boost traffic and help us capture a greater share of the boink-to-boink online space,'' she commented.

The Daily Boink! ( ) represents the next step in the evolution of B2B (boink-to-boink) Web sites. Its mission is to grow the online audience for gag-a-day hilarity through daily boink! animations.

The Daily Boink! is owned and operated by The Daily Boink!, LLC, a 15-employee firm based in Santa Monica, Calif. The Daily Boink!, LLC recently completed its first round of financing, raising $40 for its domain name registration and first month's hosting fees.
