OTTAWA, Sept. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Mashline.com released the official
soundtrack entitled, Mashline Girl - "I've Got a Crush on Harper," just over a

Harper is set to rocket skyward with all the added inertia of the
controversial song! The premiere mega hit has quickly blasted into a Canadian
and International, Internet and traditional media phenomenon! The video is now

a parody, to being featured on Reuters.com, Forbes.com, CNBC, The Economist,
AOL Money and Finance, Canoe Money, CTV National News, The Washington Post,
The National Post and much, much more, in less than one short week.
In that one tiny week, this premiere of the mega hit gave Canadians an
unexpected taste of how social media can impact the way Canadians view current
affairs and politics. "This is one of many viral marketing tools conceived to
promote our new website," said Mashline.com's founder Jean-Claude Trottier. "I
cherish the concept of free enterprise in Canada and if people flock to our

current topic, power to me. I am proud to promote our Canadian talent and look
forward to sharing with the public more of our unique products."
