chokolo.sony/u

This was the name of a Sony-owned YouTube competitor in a dream. I read the sentence, “I was unable to find the video either on YouTube or on chokolo.sony/u.”

I thought, That’s terrible branding. They should just call it Chokolo.

The name was pronounced “Chuckalo dot Sony slash u.” The logo resembled familiar cartoon representations of the birdemic virus.

Based perhaps on the Chocobo birds from the Final Fantasy games on Playstation.

Unlikely, as I've never heard of them, have never used a Playstation, and know nothing about Final Fantasy but the name.

Easy Without You

This is one of the most seamless mashups I've ever heard.
