Parry Gripp Composes New Track for PG, Creators Heading to Comic-Con to Meet With Fans
SAN FRANCISCO – July 12, 2012 – When not running away from the perils that befall them each day, what are the Pygmies of Pocket God doing? Rocking out! As irreverent as they are, the Pygmies have employed the help of equally irreverent (but in a good way!) musical sensation Parry Gripp, singer-songwriter and the brains behind Song of the Week. The result? A theme song taking the island by storm! Dubbed The Pygmy Theme, this collaboration between the Pygmies and Parry Gripp—okay, pretty much all composed by Parry Gripp with little Pygmy involvement — originally debuted in Episode 45: Dance Dance Execution, has been well received by the Pocket God community and, due to popular demand, is now available for download. The island chart-topper can be obtained through iTunes for $0.99, with appearances scheduled for Google Play, Amazon mp3, and Zune in the coming weeks.
Remember music videos? We made one! Be amazed by checking it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyvC-jz3uRA

“It was a real honor to be asked by the dudes at Bolt to write The Pygmy Theme. Pocket God rules!” said singer-songwriter and honorary Pygmy Parry Gripp. “Also, I’m grateful that they didn’t drop me into a volcano.”
But wait, there’s more! Pocket God creators (and comic lovers) Dave Castelnuovo and Allan Dye will be at San Diego Comic-Con! Stop by the Ape Entertainment booth and get your issues of Pocket God Comics signed, as well as your mobile phone, baseball cards, grandma’s social security checks, and anything else you want autographed. After shaking hands with Dave and Allan, make sure to say “summer squash” to receive something special from the creative dueo behind Pocket God. Maybe you’ll get more comics, or perhaps other cool swag, but for sure you’ll get a memory that will last a lifetime. Awww.
