I think it was back around 2008 someone posted about it here, but I cannot find the thread.

There was this game that had all kinds of hype behind it before it launched. It was some kind of 2D sidescrolling MMO where everything was interactive somehow or another. There were 12(?) god like beings they called giants that had shrines you could make offerings of items and such to them with. There were no real enemies except for crows or ravens or something that came out under certain conditions. The YouTube video promoting the game had a really catchy jingle. That's all I can remember.

Whenever I try to Google any of this the only results that come up are pertaining to the Giants football team no matter what other words or combination of words I use T___T

I think it's Glitch you are looking for. A failed, casual, social media type, MMO. It was pretty fun, but the model didn't work for the developers, and they shut their doors and moved on. Unfortunately they didn't release any of the source so no private servers came up afterward.

You basically went around collecting and gathering anything and everything you could for quests and trading and housing/gardening existed. You could interact with things once per day, so you could run around and gather from all the pigs in the game, and then had to wait until reset before you could again.

If I remember it had a cosmetic pay store. But no real other way to earn money (unless it had advertising, but I don't recall in game ads).

Edit:
Looks like Glitch was kinda almost not quite maybe attempted to be revived by some group as "Eleven Giants".

But, looks like it has been in Development/Alpha for something like... 3 years. And is not actually playable beyond a small group of Alpha testers in a very "not ready" alpha state from what I can gather thru a quick read of the forums.

Yes. That's it. I recognized it the moment I saw the name. Thanks.
